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…
There you go.
In case you missed them, check out the trailers for the show’s third season:
And a few links for you to check out…
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.

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.
