“Excuse me,”said our waiter in his thick Italian accent. “May I ask you a question.”
“You are an actor?”
“You are Boone?!”
“But after three seasons, it is finished already???”
Well, yes. Long story but, in a nutshell, the decision makers at syfy were never fans of the show.
Still, I never tire of hearing from fans who have discovered the show for the first time. Syfy may have dismissed us without a second thought, but Dark Matter fandom remains strong. Thank you!
Today, I had lunch with actor Anthony Lemke who drove all the way into town to sit down with me and discuss the gene manipulation, transhumanism, and perils of future tech over schiacciatas, zabaglione lattes, and a double order of baccala.
Boy, he would be perfect for at least three of the projections I’m currently developing.
Finally, congratulations to Dark Matter’s Lynda McCormack for her Best Achievement in Makeup nomination (Episode 304, “All The Time In The World”) and VFX Supervisor Lawren Bancroft-Wilson and his team for their Best Visual Effects nomination (Episode 313, “Nowhere To Go”) at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards. Good luck!
