I didn’t realize today was Dark Matter Day until fans pointed it out on twitter. Yes, hard to believe it was three years today that Dark Matter premiered, launching its glorious
5 season 3 season run. I miss the cast, the crew, and seeing the fan reaction to all of the twists, turns, shocks and surprises we’d dish out on an episodic basis. Still, it’s heartening to see that fandom remains just as strong and passionate, as evidenced by the continued support for the show online – and the awesome fan art that continues to be produced (like the We Are The Raza masterpiece pictured above c/o @radiolaires).
Thanks to all of you who continue to keep the show alive like longtime fan Tom Gardiner who, among his many selfless acts in support of the series, had the temerity to criticize its cancellation – and ended up getting blacklisted by the syfy for it. Tom, you have an open invitation to come visit the set of my next show. Also, thanks for the above posted gif which neatly sums up what the series was all about.
If you take away nothing else from your experience watching Dark Matter’s three season run, let is be this: Despite the challenges, and against all odds, We Are Family.
Also, syfy hates you.
