As a rule, I try to steer clear of spoilers on this blog but, today, I’m afraid I’m going to have to make an exception…

June 9, 2017: Dark Matter Season 3 Double-episode Premiere, Tonight At 8:00 P.m. On Syfy And Space Channel!

There you go.

Anthony Lemke Talks Season 3 and the New Big Bad

I think because it’s fun viewing. It’s a good hour of television. Good storytelling that also examines some deeper questions about the human condition like the notion of what is it to have a soul? What is it to be human? The notion of identity. And in my mind that’s sort of the best sci-fi. It combines those questions about humanity with a fun romp through a world we can only imagine, because we’re not there yet. And that’s why you watch this show.

The Verve’s Andrew Liptak Syfy’s Pulpy Space Opera Dark Matter and Why You Should Watch

Aside from the fact that Syfy was overdue for more spaceship stories, what I find most appealing is how it resembles pulpy, entertaining shows like Farscape, Firefly, and Stargate. It has a cast of wildly different characters, each with their own motivations and agendas, and the show manages to cram an impressive amount of story and world-building into just a couple of seasons.

Seat42F’s Tiffany Vogt Unravels the Raza Crew’s Adventures From A to Z

A is for Android.  The Raza crew awoke on an empty ship only to discover that they were not completely alone. There was an android synced to the ship that was programmed to protect the ship.  But when the android attacked them, the Android was subsequently memory-wiped as well so it would function with the ship and aid the Raza crew.  Known simply as Android, the Android has surprisingly bonded with the Raza crew and is loyal to them — so long as they do not pose a threat to the ship or each other.  (A is also for Lt. Anders, who is the former partner of Six in the Galactica Authority.)

I talk with Blastr’s Kathie Huddleston about Getting the Band Back Together.

Yeah, that’s the plan for Episode 1, is getting the band back together, see who survived and ultimately getting them reunited for a renewed purpose. And that’s to take down the individual who did this to them. Who happens to be a former ally. And that essentially sets the stage for Season 3 amid the backdrop of a corporate war.

  1. Dang it! The hotel here in Topeka does not carry SyFy. Looks like we’ll be streaming the premiere on my tablet…

  2. Holy Christ.
    The only thing harder than waiting for the premier is waiting between each week for the next episode. Nice season opener there Joe!


  3. That 2 episode premiere was utterly amazing! Made me realize how much I missed all those twists, turns, unexpected outcomes, new mysteries and the TENSION. Well done all!

    I cannot find After Dark on Is there a secret password or something?

  4. I don’t know where to watch it. I don’t have cable and the Kodi ad dons aren’t working today.

  5. Watched the whole two hours. It was a tough wait. No after primer program. I guess I could have watched Wynnoa Earp after but I am not into zobeis and living dead shows.

  6. Now that was a premiere! This is going to be a roller coaster ride this season. Rewatching again. Couldn’t find After Dark on afterward either.

  7. I too have been waiting for Dark Matter to start up again. It’s too bad the folks over at make it so difficult to watch anything online …. all I keep getting is a message stating ‘The media cannot be played’
    Boo on you!
    Someone should tell them they will be losing A LOT of viewers with that BS!

  8. Two back to back semi-solid/solid episodes filled with loads of Dark Matter
    goodness…and even some very interesting badassiness.
    There was plenty there to watch and to enjoy.
    As a viewer…I can’t really ask for much more than that.

    Sad to see some of the old faces now gone and glad/excited to see
    who survived and is still around to keep on kicking stuff around.

    BIG BIG thanks to everyone involved in making these episodes so
    interesting, exciting and enjoyable.

    Knock knock.
    Who is there?
    Season number the door.

  9. Dark Matter is back! Awesome episode! Kudos to everyone involved. Great performances by the whole cast, especially Jodelle. You guys must have blown thru most of your CGI budget for this premier. Can’t wait for next week, looks like it will be a trippy episode.
    Also Joe, is there anywhere that sells Dark Matter T-shirts? Not sure if there is a place that sells stuff from the show or not.
    And I can’t find the Dark Matter After-Show on as well. Please post a link so we can watch it.

  10. Congratulations Joe. Great to have Dark Matter back. Looks like the action and suspense is continuing on.

  11. Loved the premiere! I live in the U.S. yet, After Dark didn’t air right after the show. Wynonna Earp aired….I also tried looking for it on but was unable to find it… we need to do something special to watch After Dark? Hope to get this resolved soon so that we can all enjoy the after show!!! Thanks!


  12. Season 3 of Dark Matter is mind-blowing. I liked very much the use of more science and more space battles taking place. I hope we see more of Commander Truffault in season 3, it’s nice to have a few Stargate reminders in Dark Matter. Great work mr. Mallozzi

  13. I am so darn disappointing!!!!. The day after it premiered and the SyFy internet web site will allow me to watch the full episode 2 but NOT the first one???!!! wow is that disappointing and stupid. Why would anyone want to watch only the SECOND of a 2 episode season premier??!! Kind of stupid. Thinking of just walking away from this series altogether. I guess I don’t have much of a choice.:(

  14. @do we need to do something special to watch After Dark?

    Yep. You need to look into a mirror at exactly midnight and say After Dark three times. Your TV or computer will then switch on by itself with the After show playing.

  15. Sorry about that post. It looks as though the issue is irrelevant for me–as I do not have cable-TV. It looks as though a current cable TV subscription is necessary to view Dark Matter on syfy. bummer for those of us without cable tv. unfortunate that I cannot even purchase episodes on amazon etc. I understand that this distribution may be out of the hands of Dark Matter producers–still bummer:(

  16. I really enjoyed Tiffany’s article. It was very unique. She is awesome.

    No spoilers for our international friends but wow it was an adrenaline rush. Hoping to watch it again tomorrow (Sunday) with my Jeff. He was too tired to hang on for both episodes.

    You and Paul did a fabulous job with the scripts. And of course everyone who had anything to do with putting it all together.

    The scenes for next week look great. Three singing? Fabulous.
