Space… the final frontier
Gotta level with you here, I absolutely love fantasy but sci-fi and me are not good friends. Star Trek to Star Wars I just couldn’t get into the great beyond like I could the magical world. Maybe it’s because space is real and there are clear rules and guidelines, maybe it’s because I prefer the unpredictability of magic to science I can’t say for certain.
I will say this, SyFy seems to have a knack for writing shows I’ll watch. They created a space series I not only binge watched, but was truly disappointed a third season hadn’t made it to the streaming site.
It started with a brief period of withdrawal. I like to completely immerse myself in a show, internet stalk the cast and crew, find our what other projects they’re doing. This usually happens AFTER I’ve watched a series with 4 or more seasons.
There is a period of mourning when I realise it’s too soon to rewatch the show but i have yet to decide on a new series. Lost Girl was just that show. Dark Matter. My antidote.
Both shows are Canadian (yay Canada!) Both appear on SyFy. Dark Matter, is based on the comic book of the same name. Though I have not read the comic series the show bumps it up on my to-do list.
Dark Matter. Opens with a group of six people waking up on a ship called the Raza. No one has any memory of how they got there or what they were doing before they woke up. They name themselves One through Six and work on reclaiming their identities.
I did hear word the shows third season premiered June 9, 2017. I have yet to catch an episode but I’ll keep looking. The first 2 seasons which are pretty action packed and full of angst are of course of Netflix. The fight scenes were my favorite.
