June 30, 2016: 1 Day To The Dark Matter Season 2 Premiere!

Wow.  It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were watching in shock as the crew of The Raza was being dragged off by the Galactic Authority, and the traitor in their midst was revealed as none other than SIX!  And now, here we are, less than 24 hours away from answers to questions like:

Why did SIX do it?

Where are they taking the crew?

And does prison food agree with THREE?

As someone already pointed out, it’s 4th of July weekend and many will be traveling – or attending fireworks displays on the night in question.   But, hopefully, YOU won’t be among them because you’ll be home, watching the premiere.  Trust me, you’re going to want to be sitting down for this one (But not in traffic or on an uncomfortable picnic blanket or lawn chair.  On a related note, did you know that number of fireworks-related eye injuries is on the rise?  Hot burning embers can damage your corneas!  Stay safe this weekend.  Stay home and watch Dark Matter!).  It’s going to get mighty crazy – onscreen and then online, immediately following the episode.  If you miss out, don’t say I didn’t warn you…

  1. Rather than sitting amongst the fire ants along the fish stinky bank of the local downtown river, swatting mosquitos and profusely sweating in the zero breeze 97 degree heat and then stuck in a big traffic jam trying to get home, I will be curling up on my couch with something cool to drink and good to eat while watching the season premiere of Dark Matter. I am very fine with that.

  2. Love the Brady Bunch collage. Great sneak peek screen shot. I want to know where this is! Still trying to catch up on all the links. Season 1 rewatched! Bring it on Season 2!

  3. So, here we go …. the world Dark Matter Season 2 premier weekend! Yay, huzzah and OMG! Good luck Joe and party on everyone!!!

    … and can you believe it … I will be helping out at my local club, teaching on the UK premier evening!!! How mega amazingly craptastic is that! Why did they make the classes on a Monday! Dah!! I will be watching the repeat at 11.20pm but it wont be quite the same (but nearly the same 😊).
    …. And pity the student who dares play up …. 😠 You have been warned!

    Have a great night tonight all those lucky enough to live in the 1st July Premier zones (and any other time/date zones before 4th July showing) Not jealous AT ALL! Nope…

    Happy celebrations everyone too! Stay safe and happy. 😊

    I wonder if Britain will now be celebrating it’s own Independence Day?!

  4. I created one where I actually tried to arrange everyone like the Brady Bunch, but I kept getting stuck on a few. But come on, Two and Six are mom and dad, and the Android has got to be Alice, right? But who the heck is Jan? It was killing me. But I swear the brady bunch thing was an accident! :: laughing ::


    Hope you are all having a FANTASTIC week! I’ve been trying to slowly dig through my backlog of nonprofit work, currently in marketing hell. Musicals, man, they are too much work for me.

    But tomorrow is FRIDAY and I’m going to be unavailable and watchin’ TV.


  5. I was looking forward to season two right up till the last part of the season 1 finale. That particular twist just really killed my interest in the show. It’s not that I think it was done poorly or anything like that, it’s just that particular plot turn has been done so many times in recent shows. I’ll still watch the season 2 premiere on the dvr after I get home from fireworks, mainly cause all my other shows are on break at present. Maybe the show can rekindle the spark, only time will tell.

  6. A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to @MaggieL80!

  7. Hi Joe

    Are you going to be discussing the premier immediately after it airs in Canada/US?

    Just need to know so I avoid the blog til after our premier here in the UK 🙂


  8. Happy Dark Matter premiere day one and all!!

    It’s been a heck of a long time coming.

  9. Happy Dark Matter/Canada Day everyone!

    And also it seems a happy birthday to MaggieL80!

    Here’s my list of the doggie episodes, for what it’s worth. Dang some of those, okay most of them, are pretty hard. Any, a few probablies with a lot of WAGs.

    Episode 16: Pic 7
    Episode 17: Pic 5

    Episode 26: Pic 11

  10. I have been trying to keep a twitter list of cast and crew and I may have missed some (and if I have, let me know–anybody can let me know and I’ll add them). It’s been hard trying to track down the crew especially! I sorted it in alpha order:


  11. It’s almost time for it all to kick off……except I’ve got to wait until Monday before I see it here!

    That’s another great screen shot and I love the 360 degree bridge view 👍

  12. Hmm…the way you call that photo the “Brady Bunch picture” and other subtle things I’e seen over the last few weeks….is this season, or the whole show in general, all about FIVE somehow? Interesting…..

    I gotta say, too. It’s been fun seeing the show pop up on the on-screen guide and seeing the title of each episode and knowing EXACTLY where it came from and who’s responsible for it!

    Can’t wait for tonight!
    -Mike A.

  13. @Sylvia:

    I decided to go with a beef brisket. As for the pecan pie, work jumped in a stole some of my time today so my daughter and son in law are buying a pecan pie (oh, the horror! A store bought pie! 😀 ), but at least I’ll be making a bourbon glaze to go on top.

    They are also working on a Dark Matter mixed cocktail (I think the base will be a blueberry margarita plus some other ingredients of their choosing). You may see a picture of it on twitter tonight…

    On the Stargate convention in September, yes, Barb and I will be there. Mostly we’re going to spend time with our Stargate friends…the rest is a bit of old hat, but it’s the friends that make it worth the trip.

  14. I have my seasoned pretzels baking in the oven for tonight’s premiere. Anyone having a DM party?

    Happy Canada Day!

    The artwork is fantastic!

  15. Hmmm..I”m guessing Joe gave us a hint in the above post; episode 14 is indeed picture #12! I can’t wait to find out what picture really goes with each episode. I’m hoping for at least 50% outta my guesses. LOL

    We’ve got storms moving through this afternoon and evening; one just passed and the sun is shining again. We have tickets to a local baseball game tonight, so I’m hoping it gets rained out. Unfortunately they don’t call those things until game time…or during the game. But, happily, Dark Matter doesn’t come on until 10pm, so I should be back if there are no rain delays. If there are rain delays, I may have to work on hubby to not hang out until the end. Holiday weekend, no excuse to get up early tomorrow…we’ll see.

    Will do my best to be on Twitter tonight! I will at least, though, get to tweet with those watching in the western time zones. Just may not make the east coast airing.

    1. Everyone who is on the blog: Tell me your twitter handle so I can add you to my DMFans list so I can follow your tweets more simply.

  16. @JeffW – shudder – I know what you mean about a store bought pie!
    Rock N Ribs bakes their own on the premises…yum.

    Cool sounding DM libation.

    I think a few of my friends and I will be attending – for us to gather/meet up and to see our Stargate favs. Perhaps we can cross paths..will touch bases with you closer to the con.

    Meanwhile – you have cooking and mixing to attend to…woooohooooo
    DM Premiere…bring it on!

  17. oh my goodness!
    no spoilers here… but that episode…. I was literally yelling at the tv at certain points…
    great writing!!! I don’t know how I will make it through to next week!!!
