Thanks to everyone who joined in on our last Stargate tweetstorm. Although the aim wasn’t really to trend, we did nonetheless place in the Top 10 in France, Germany, and Canada, and ended up showing in the U.S., U.K., and Worldwide trends. So well done. The potential homes of a new series were blasted with a reminder that Stargate fandom is out there – and very much looking forward to a new in-canon series. The rest is up to them…
Came across this nice little article the other day:
“It’s gripping viewing right from the start, in part because the storytelling displays a confidence that you don’t always see in mystery-heavy series like this. It’s not just that it feels like the show already knows the answers to the big questions; it feels like the pathway to those answers is clear – to the showrunners, if not the characters themselves.”
Yes, as a matter of fact, I did have a plan – for every story and character arc.
“Part of what makes Dark Matter so satisfying to watch is the way that it doesn’t let questions pile up. Some of the mysteries in the first episode are answered later in the same episode; others turn out to be questions that hang over the first season, and sometimes over the show’s entire three season run.
And no sooner are some questions answered than new ones come to the fore. What’s going on behind that mysterious locked door? Why is there a murdered teenage boy in the cargo hold? And most importantly of all, it’s clear that it was one of the six who tampered with their stasis pods and wiped their memories – but which one and why?”
Man, this article made me all sorts of nostalgic. So much so that I’m considering organizing a fan re-watch of the series during which I’ll offer up behind the scenes pics, videos, and trivia on every episode. Who’s interested?
