OK, It’s 2018 and life goes on. Part of embracing a new year is being able to forgive and forget, but there’s still one thing that sticks in my throat and leaves a bad taste in my mouth from last year. The sudden and inexplicable cancellation of one of my favorite shows – Dark Matter.
I know, it always comes down to money and covering the bottom line, but some things are just unforgivable. It wasn’t only as much about how they cancelled the series as it was that they cancelled it at all. Syfy when you assume a name like yours that acts as a title for what you are about, you enter into a pact with your viewers an agreement that includes trust and a specific understanding that you are expected to uphold. We have been here before when you went off the rails with programming choices that were poorly advised, but we forgave you, and you seemed to learn your lesson. Obviously, that’s not the case.
Ar we supposed to believe you have anything else in mind beyond padding your profits when you behave in this manner? Following that news, Syfy announced the series KIlljoys, which airs its Season 3 finale on Friday, has been renewed for two more seasons, which will be the show’s last. The network announced that “Killjoys” will return for a fourth season in 2018, and the sci-fi action hour will end after Season 5. The two seasons will round out the “Killjoys” saga with 20 additional episodes. Are we supposed to believe you are sincere in wanting to bring the best science fiction available when you make decisions like this to support mediocrity?
Shame on you Syfy.Years from now when you ponder what happened and when it all started to go wrong remember the trust you betrayed and sold out for a pair of imported Italian loafers or moving to that new more fashionably located condo that was more important than keeping up your end of a pact with your fanbase. Now more than ever it becomes obvious you do not deserve to be able to call your self the Syfy channel, you haven’t earned the right.
