I need episode titles for Dark Matter’s third season.  And, next to waking up early and looking for parking, there’s nothing I hate more than coming up with episode titles.  So, this is where YOU come in.  Below are three potential choices for our season 3 premiere – the episode where we find out if almost everyone died in the explosion on the EOS-7 space station.

Cast your vote.  You have 24 hours to make your voices heard.  And remember – every vote counts (you can actually see them all counted up when I post the final tally in tomorrow’s entry).

After getting home from work last night, I ate dinner, then wrote five pages of my latest script, watched auditions and made selections for Episode 306, and watched and gave notes on the Episode 301 and 304 cuts.  An early start to the day has me feeling a little…logey.  You know what I need?  Some really boozy mini rum cakes.  Well, guess what Akemi made today?

January 17, 2017: Dark Matter Season 3 – Day 33 Of 91!

Apparently, they were so boozy that she couldn’t eat them.  I plan on eating two of them when I get home tonight and sleeping for 12 hours straight!

Today, Akemi sent me this.  It’s a Buzzfeed video featuring rescue dogs.  And, at the 20 second mark, you’ll find our Suji eating peanut butter!

Buzzfeed contacted Akemi about using the video last month and she couldn’t have been happier.

Check it out.  Over 1 million views.  Suji is famous!  I’m going to see if I can get her for a guest spot on Dark Matter!

  1. Hey there, Joe. Hope all is well. I cast my episode title vote, and please tell Akemi those rum cakes look awesome (and I bet they tasted awesome, too)!

  2. I could watch animal videos all day and that is not an exaggeration!

    Those boozy cakes look good!!!!!

    Also, haven’t voted on titles yet. I need to think about it. They are all good. I’m leaning toward “Welcome Back” because it reminds me of that old TV show. It had a great theme song too! It’s a hard decision….

  3. I remember having a hard time remembering what I voted for when the time came for the episodes to air, so this time I’m making a list!

  4. Given my preference for short titles, I of course picked “Welcome Back”. Which of course, is losing. C’mon people, brevity is the soul of wit, and all that! 🙂

    Those rum cakes look great, and if they help you sleep 12 hours straight send some down this way! I can’t even imagine sleeping that long anymore. When I get a good solid 5 hours lately, (which is pretty frequent now, thankfully) I think I’m doing well!

    Great dog video with Suji. I sense big things in the future for this one.

  5. I had about a 90% success rate at picking titles last year. I don’t think I can do that again. Those 3 are all good. I’m scared. Okay, well, here goes nothing….

  6. Joe, you’re going to have to start giving out Suji autographs. And some of those rum cakes too!

  7. I agree with gforce, brevity is a Good Thing. So I’m in the minority with Welcome Back too. Seems fitting for a season opener.

    Suji is the cutest star in the galaxy!

    Mmm, rum cakes, I do love me some rum cakes. I’ll have to bake one as soon as I get some eggs in the house.

    We met a darling pug-griffin mix in Maui, tiny black beauty cutie of a doggie. She was all over Larry, and loved his beard, nom nom nom. I have the video posted on FB, but don’t know how to share it past that.

  8. So fun to vote and realize the majority agree with me!

    I didn’t realize 90 days is all you have! I mistakenly thought you would have 6 months since the release is in July! So I will be able to read all about the post shooting events.

    That is amazing! It only took me 30 days to figure it out. 😂

  9. I agree with @ceresis, voting means we are that much closer to S3. I also agree with @gforce, I chose Welcome Back, for its brevity and because I wanted to welcome back the Raza crew for a rip, roaring S3.

    Love the video! We already knew Suji was a star, now she has officially reached “Diva” status.

    I admit I had to look up the word “logey”.

    Boozy mini rum cakes…I’m in!

  10. I am with gforce and maggiemayday about brevity plus “Welcome Back” just seems to fit well for the start of a new season. Suji is definitely a star. Having two older dogs of my own, am really glad she now has such a happy life. She couldn’t ask for better “doggie parents” than you and Akemi.

  11. 🙁 Corneal abrasions are curl in a fetal position and wail type pain. Dogs have as many pain receptors in their eyes as we do. Getting them cared for is the humane thing. Poor girl, she’s had a hard time… she deserves a break.

  12. Absolutely love voting on titles! And knowing that they’re titles said by characters is equally fun.

  13. Cool, the episodes titles polls are back :).

    Voted for “Being Better Is So Much Harder” because i think it’s fitting for, well, the entire series.

  14. Lucy has a new thing she does. She’s discovered that she can open cabinet doors. So every morning I walk into the bathroom (sometimes throughout the day) and every cabinet door is open. It’s an open system too, so that means all the drawers are pulled out too. Lucy is a fun cat.

  15. Once again thank you for letting us pick titles. It feels like the fans help make the episodes.

    Suji is an Internet sensation. ❤

  16. I’m with Thogar, I also thought those rum cakes looked like corn on the cob and wondered if you’d posted the wrong pic!

    Hugs to Suji, such a cutie.

  17. Okay, I loved the video! More please!
    @Thogar, I too thought at first the rum cakes were fried corn on the cob! Ha!

    For the record I opted for “Being Better is So Much Harder” because I can picture in my mind seeing Three saying it.

  18. I thought those were candied corn on the cob at first glance, but rum cake is much better, so jealous! I even have a orange cranberry muffin on my desk and I’m still wishing I had those rum cakes!

    Suji’s story of being discovered in a barn, rescued by kindly strangers and whisked off to life of luxurious naps and mingling with celebs is the stuff of telenovelas and Disney princess movies. What a little cute face, no wonder she’s conquering the world.

  19. I would have gone for “Raise Your Hand If You’re Still Alive” for the S3 premiere title, but that’s just me. 😛

  20. @maggiemayday Maui sounds lovely. That must have been quite the shock coming home to the weather you did. We were supposed to go to Kauai for our honeymoon but something happened that prevented that. Long story. Hopefully we’ll get there before I die.

    @TamDixon Lucy is smart and funny.

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How wonderful is that. Suji is very famous. I’m going to share that video on my business FB page (and of course share it on my personal FB page).

    Rum cakes. Sound delicious. Another thing I would not be able to eat because of the alcohol. I agree I thought they were deep-fried ears of corn on the cob.

    I voted for “The Costs Are Always Personal” because it sounds intriguing
