Evidently, matching dog pics to unseen episodes is a lot harder than it looks. The majority of those who tried their luck at this latest contest averaged between 2-3 correct answers…out of 13! Some managed a very impressive 6, even 7 correct matches. But our winner smoked them all with an astounding 10 correct matches!
Congratulations to Chad B.! While others may have doubted you, I never lost faith in your guessing abilities!
A little screen grab from Dark Matter’s upcoming third season…
What’s going on here? Theories? Wild guesses?
Yep, it’s a grueling schedule and our casts works very hard. Pictured above, Anthony Lemke after a particularly exhausting day on set. And this was just our first episode of the season!
Zoie Palmer and Jodelle Ferland run through a scene with director Bruce McDonald at the helm. Wait. Is that an Adventure Time t-shirt?
Roger Cross and Co-Executive Producer Norman Denver argue over the last donut on the craft table.
Toronto has a lot of great things going for it, but Japanese food aint one of them. I know, I know. People in Toronto can offer plenty of suggestions for good sushi and Japanese food in their city and their recommendations are fine – by Toronto standards – but for anyone who has eaten good Japanese food, it’s mighty slim pickings…with the exception of Yasu. Vancouver, on the other hand, is another story. Akemi and I hit Maumi Sushi on our first week back, then Raisu on 4th and Kinome on West Broadway. Check out the giant bowl of tonkatsu curry udon from Raisu. Every time I eat at one of these places, it makes me home-away-from-homesick for Japan. The plan is to head back in September (with a potential stopover in Hong Kong), but only if we can find someone to take care of our two little ladies while we’re away. They’re older girls and need a lot more TLC and, above all, patience.
To those asking – the condo searching is progressing slowly. How difficult is it too find a place that: 1. Is open and gets a lot of natural light, 2. Is pet-friendly, 3. Has a patio (not a balcony), 4. Is air-conditioned, 5. Is well-located? Apparently, very difficult. In the meantime, I am slowly packing away books, toys, and other sundries so that the house can look its best when we show it in July. I’m not really a motivated seller, more of a disinterested one, driven more by curiosity than anything. Who knows? Maybe someone will make us an offer we can’t refuse.
But that’s a problem for another month. Coming up in June, Dark Matter gets my full attention as the writers’ room convenes for the show’s fourth season. I’m not saying we’ll definitely get a fourth year but our ratings have been solid in North America and internationally (more on that in the coming days) and season 3 promises some really great episodes (more on this in the coming days). Whereas season 1 was about the search for answers and was bookended by the revelation that our crew are criminals and their eventual arrest, season 2 hinted at darker conspiracies and a concerted drive for redemption – that literally ended up blowing up in our anti-villains’ faces. In season 3, we’ll be kicking off the corporate war, our crew’s past comes back to haunt particularly in the form of a former friend turned nemesis, and ends in grand fashion – with the closing of one chapter and the start of another. Each season is bigger than the one that preceded it and, after watching season 3, I’m sure you’ll agree: we’ll have our work cut out for us topping this one.
But I have a few ideas…
