Dark Matter

Space 2015

The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With no idea whose side they are on, they face a deadly decision. Will these amnesiacs turn their backs on history, or will their pasts catch up with them?

Feels exactly like Stargate formula with similar issues (no surprise, with Jo Mallozzi and Paul Mullie). Not a bad thing as is being a huge Stargate fan. Quite the opposite actually, it feels kinda like "home", familiar so to say, although the cast is completely different and there's no Stargate anywhere whatsoever. Now, this is not SG by a long shot BUT it shares some of the longest writers/exec producers of SG which is a good thing. Personally, I couldn't be happier about Jo making a new SciFi show in space. It may or may not work out but so far, and we're just 3 eps in now, I genuinely enjoyed it. It doesn't reinvent the wheel and I see issues (clichés) but is by far not the worst effort of a new show I've seen the past seasons (DIG/American Odysee) and has room for a lot of exploration and I do trust Jo to be at least able to make this a greatly enjoyable show given time. Question is, if he is given the time he needs. Considering the low acceptance of "SciFi" these days I won't hold my breath no matter the journey in S1 but we'll see.

Interesting new start. Stargate fans should like this.

Low budget sci-fi, which seems promising on first look, but soon starts squeaking from multiple directions. For me it fits into category of "fill" series, which I watch when I have nothing better to do. My opinion is based on 9 watched episodes. Few examples: [Minor spoilers] *Jodelle Ferland aka Six wants to play immature girl, but is not really working. Everyone acts like she is about 14 years old, but she is clearly much older than the character she is playing, which is funny. *I've also seen multiple attempts of funny scenes, but show didn't get anything more than "huehueh" from me. *Four is a guy from traditional samurai family. I always facepalm when I see their soldiers "going to battle", with traditional samurai armor, drop their swords and start shooting with guns. (And no, their armor is not bulletproof).

It's been canceled... Syfy canceled another Sci-Fi show. Syfy? Hello? Anyone there? Syfy needs to rebrand themselves... because it ain't Syfy without Sci-Fi.

The best and most underrated sci-fi adventure show since Firefly. But better.

avatar

Im so freakin got dang mad right f'ing now! SyFy your a FOX wannabe somma-biatch! Firefly, Stargate Universe, and now Dark Matter. I'd turn in to Hulk right now if I was Banner. Pissed Off Man! as Smokey would say. Just cancelled MY suga hunny iced tea. BTW Killjoys sucks! Its a garbage drama, with love scenes and crap. I want science fiction, if I want love scenes, I got over 2 TBs of hardcore porn and plenty of lotion and tissues.

avatar

One of the few shows I always looked forward to seeing and now its cancelled. Great leave the viewers hanging with all those plots open. At least do a 2 hour movie to give us a ending or maybe like Firefly do a movie to tie things up

avatar

Such a shame. Dark Matter started off slow. I had given up after season 1 but came back to give it a second chance with season 2 and it definitely didn't disappoint! It just kept getting better and better. Season 3 was just stellar. I would have loved to see how the 5 season arc played out. I really hope another network picks them up; syfy doesn't deserve Dark Matter.

It took me sometime to get into the series, but I'm damn sure happy I did. A great show for what it's worth.

Reaally cool show. XD ^^ haha I love it sooo much!

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
