Well, this is nice.  Actor Jeff Teravainen (Dark Matter’s Lieutenant Anders and Utopia Falls’ Gerald) alerted me to the fact that the #DarkMatter hashtag was actually trending in Canada during yesterday’s Episode 302 rewatch and live tweet with actress Jodelle Ferland.  NICE!  And congratulations!

Today, we’ve got another amazing rewatch, live tweet, and InstaLive Q&A!



Join fans around the world as we watch and live tweet Episode 308, “Hot Chocolate” with actor Alex Mallari Jr., director John Stead, and yours truly.  We’ll be kicking things off at 3 ET! Please double check the time in your area.


So, here’s a detailed breakdown of how it’s going to work.  Everything you need to know about how to take part.

STEP #1: Sign up for a twitter account and make sure to follow me @BaronDestructo, Alex Mallari Jr, and John Stead.

STEP #2: Sign up for an instagram account and make sure to follow Alex Mallari Jr. and John Stead.

STEP #3: Cue up Dark Matter Episode 308, Hot Chocolate, whether you’re watching it on dvd, Netflix, Amazon Prime, or other means.

STEP #4: Make sure you’re following me on twitter.  Keep an eye out because at the appointed time (3:00 p.m. ET) I’ll tweet GO! which is your signal to press play.

STEP #5: Watch and tweet, engage with Alex, John, me, and Dark Matter fans around the world.  For first time tweeters, just hit this icon at the bottom left of your screen –

And then write a message in the pop-up box (making sure not to go over the 240 character limit).  Hit SEND and you’re done!

Please include the hashtag #DarkMatter in all of your messages so we can find your tweets.

STEP #6: Once the episode is over, head on over to Alex Mallari Jr’s instagram page.  Once you see her icon on the left hand top of the page indicate she has gone live (you’ll see the word LIVE) OR if you see an icon indicating she has gone live (you’ll see the word LIVE) just click her face and you’ll be transported to a live videostream of Jodelle  and I (hopefully, if this works).  We’ll be answering your questions for about an hour.

STEP #7: There is no step 7.  We’re done.  But prepare to do it all over again Monday with actress Zoie Palmer and Co-Executive Producer Ivon Bartok when we rewatch Episode 205, We Decided Not To Space You.

  1. Fun instagram! Alex’s Canadian accent he slipped on and off was cool. Sounded like Fargo.

  2. Joe,
    If you’re using a desktop/laptop copy of Chrome you cannot see a ‘live’ Instagram chat/video. You’ll hae to install the Instagram Story extension. You can watch it and read the comments but can’t interact with it. You may want to revise your instructions. I am totally enjoying the public re-watches and would love to see it continue for quite a while
    Thanks #DarkMatter
