    I like “Killjoys”, but I liked “Dark Matter” more, I don’t see a reason for it. I hope it gets picked up & they make a fortune, so much that they lament the loss!

    We were really disappointed by the abrupt cancellation of Dark Matter! Syfy please sell the rights to this series to a network or netflix who has the ability to see a winner and will continue to make the show interesting and original. We love the characters and their relationships and the pickles they find themselves in every episode. My husband was not just disappointed but more heartbroken. There is a shortage of really good sci-fi and Syfy blew it in an epic way. Who are the execs at Syfy and are any of them actual science fiction fans?

    It was a good show. It wasn’t brilliant, but it was good. Some parts of it made absolutely no sense from any point of view, like the whole Zairon thing. Space samurai is such a dumb trope, please stop with it already, and cultures would mix and merge, so a structure from 12th century Japan, which is already gone (and has been for centuries), would not exist in the future in space.

    But it had plenty of good parts.

    Of course SyFy would cancel it. Ever since their (ludicrous) name change they’ve not been very forthcoming in regards to sci-fi. Everything that is good, or just decent, sci-fi gets dropped by them eventually. They also dropped The Expanse.

    As for Firefly, that was just a sad collection of tropes with zero originality. I never understood why it became so popular. It was genuinely bad.

      The idea of an authoritarian leader trying to install his offspring as next leader? NOT as far from reality as you might want to believe. How well did it eventually go for the guy who thought a sword is better than a gun? Consistently and Predictably. And it may be a simple authoritarian leader who stole ideas from the the Japanese culture–not enough info in the show to know either way. That part of the story was far from perfect. But a still a cool idea to have a disgraced prince as one of the crew. I loved the settings. Nice to juxtapose those royal palace setting to the Raza.

      Hard to find any science fiction on TV that explored so many hard-core science fiction ideas so well. What?? and actual character arcs? ? I’ll say it–3 seasons of brilliance.

    Damn it! SyFy has done it to me again, its “Firefly all over again. Couldn’t another station see the potential in series?, which could have gone in any direction, brought out new & ground breaking standards. The chemistry between the actors seemed good, why?, So sad! Another screw over by the networks
