We held our very first open house today which required us to be out and about for approximately two hours while prospective buyers meandered through our personal space and passed judgement on my complete Gilligan’s Island dvd collection. When all was said and done, we had thirteen groups come through with at least three of them showing actual interest. But we’ll see how interested after the weekend when we open the floor to offers.
I, of course, hope we receive a terrific offer sooner than later for the simple reason that it will allow Akemi and I to sleep in our own bed again. Yesterday, the stagers came in and fixed the place up, replacing pug art and my John Scalzi novels with nature paintings and Donna cookbooks. They brought in some side tables, throw pillows, then spent a good thirty minutes steaming the wrinkles out of the new duvet in the master bedroom. Fearful of ruining their exquisite placements, we’ve taken to restricting our activities to the kitchen island and the upstairs guest room.
Another open house tomorrow means Akemi and I (and Lulu and Suji) will once again be taking our show on the road.
I have an update on The Mystery of the Garbage That Wasn’t Mine. A few weeks ago, I may have mentioned finding someone else’s garbage in our recycling bin. I mean, being made responsible for someone else’s trash is bad enough, but having to be conscientious about it really annoyed me. So I did a little investigative work and, amid the discarded clothing and leftovers stuffed inside, I discovered an old father’s day card that read: “To Dad, From Luigi and Silvana and Anthony and Rosie and Nathan. We All Love You”. Aha! Well, the other day, the I was talking to the guy across the alley and he mentioned that the former owner of the house he is living in was now living with his son, Lou. Lou! Short for Luigi perhaps??? Oh, he’s going down!
But enough about me. How about more of you and your thoughts on the latest episode of Dark Matter: Welcome To The Revolution? This one has generated a fair amount of buzz…
I talk “Welcome To The Revolution” with the TV Junkies’ Kelly Townsend.
You never know, you create the characters, write the script and cast as best you can. You see who pops and who doesn’t, and I felt Mishka and Ayisha were terrific. It’s always interesting to throw in new blood on the ship to mix things up and see how our characters will react. I like the dynamic between Three and Solara right off the bat, and I like the dynamic between Five and Adrian, so it’s something we’ll explore this season.

The crew is slowly beginning to pull away from each other when this is when they need to be their strongest.

Some big changes are happening for our favorite crew!
In Review: Dark Matter – Welcome To The Revolution by Ian Cullen at SciFi Pulse
This was an interesting episode, which explored the idea of workers being exploited by corporations and the subsequent rebellions that are always likely to happen.
Blade of the Sashurai’s review: And Then There Were Three
Dark Matter is putting the effects of the corporation war front and center as The Raza crew deal with the rough times the outer colonies must contend with. The main theme this season is providing us is the passion of growing leaders and the roles they will play. Ishida is a leader, Two has been a leader, and now Six is growing into a leadership role with Five becoming more and more independent as well. Soon, we’ll have them playing key roles that will better shape this war into their personal favor that could spell disaster for one of them, Four being the most to lose if he somehow loses his way.
SpoilerTV’s Aimee Hicks: Welcome To The Revolution Review
With each passing episode this season, Dark Matter is upping the stakes and changing things around. This was a big one for that instituted a lot of change, but it was also a very character driven episode with a heavy focus on Six which allowed Roger Cross to really shine as he took his character through a complicated journey of self-discovery.
Blastr’s Tricia Ennis: The Resistance Is Brewing
Hello, Raza crew members! We’re back with another episode of Dark Matter Season 3 and there are some big changes afoot. So, let’s jump into the fray with Episode 3: “Welcome to the Revolution.”
GeekedOutNation’s Jideobi Odunze offers his Welcome To The Revolution Review
Dark Matter “Welcome to the Revolution” challenged what you are willing to do in order to make a difference in this galaxy. The human element of a story like this is not something to overlook. Great character development, and they really did Six justice where you can’t roll your eyes this time at what he decides is right. With a war going on out there, moments like these matter more than you think.
Season 3 Episode 3 Review by Christopher Hart at The Nerd Recites.
I do love how Mallozzi is going full antagonist with Ryo and it makes me think, even more now, that our crew might actually have to indeed take him out before the season is over.
BlackGirlNerds TV Review: Dark Matter 3.3 by C. R. Sparrow
Two and Six have always been the parental figures for the crew, making decisions based on what they think is best, offering guidance, arguing and hashing things out, respecting one another’s voices, and finding resolution.
ScreenSpy’s Rachel Thomas offers a Dark Matter Recap
There were many fine moments for Six throughout the episode, showcasing the depth he added to the crew. The performances from the rest of the crew were likewise solid; Adrian Maro adds humorous color to the Raza’s crew, and Solara’s cool, understated professionalism plays superbly against the other personalities, especially Three.
