I didn't see it posted here, so I decided to do it. Season 2 will start airing July 1 on SyFy.

I kind of like the series, despite it's obvious Firefly wanna-be status. Speasking of which, started to see "Damage my Calm" T-shirts posted on Facebook. Looks shiny too.


P.S. Season 1 to air on Netflix.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I might watch Season 2, but I'm not enthused about it.

I started out that way, then as I watched I looked for obvious signs of "rip-off" from our beloved series.........but something kept bringing me back and I thought:

1- The Firefly influence
2- My decidedly strong affection for almost anything sci-fi and my geekiness
3- The show had some redeeming qualities.......nah!
4- The first two

For Firefly I was insanely enthused (they had me when I saw a space ship flying over wild horses in the show's promo), but since it's cancellation, I've seen a couple of inferior attempts at capturing that special something our BDH had. This
show is an extremely watered-down attempt, but it has it's moments. It's like drinking "Kool-Aid" spiked with water.

I know I watched the first episode of Season 2, can't remember if I watched the second one. It's now on Netflix, so maybe I'll try again. I do like a couple of the characters, mainly Five and the Android.

Same for Killjoys, just can't work up any enthusiasm for either of them. It's not on Netflix, but I just signed up for Sling TV and they are offering episodes 3-10 on demand. I tried the other night, but stopped watching the third episode about halfway through, doubt I'll go back to it.

I went through season 2 in three days or so. It's not the greatest but I am enjoying it for the most part. Season 1 left me a bit flat, but after 2, I am ready for three.

Started into the 2nd season soon after it came out, then sorta got distracted... I'll probably get back into it over the holidays?

I've kept up on this show and I think it just keeps getting better.

Anybody watch the time loop episode? That's the first time a non-comedy show has made me literally laugh out loud in a long time. Come to think of it, I don't usually laugh out loud much at comedies either.

I think anybody who lost interest in the show should keep watching. It definitely doesn't have the big budget or high adventure/action like Killjoys has, but I still think it's pretty great TV.

It's been on my Netflix list for awhile, but haven't had a chance to start it.
Now that it's cancelled after Season 3, is it worth watching?

Does it end with a cliffhanger?

Awwwww man.. it was cancelled? I'm so out of the loop.

I didn't watch every episode of the 3rd season yet. I'm sure they left it on a cliffhanger though. Hopefully it wasn't as bad as the Sarah Connor Chronicles cancellation. :(


Why do all of the good shows keep getting cancelled?

Wow...wasn't aware it had gone on 3 seasons. I liked it. There IS a 'After Dark ' show which is either on SyFy or their website. I enjoy Talk the Thrones , so I imagine it's worth while to watch too.

Killjoys, which launched the same time as Dark Matter, is returning in 2018, it seems.

( I had started a thread about both shows as being some sort of homage to Firefly, as both had elements of our BDH. )

Season Three ends on a cliffhanger, although I think less of one than the previous two seasons.

Even with the cliffhanger, the first three seasons are definitely worth watching. For my money, this is probably the closest we've had to Firefly on the air since 2002 (with Killjoys a solid second). There were a few twists in both that I didn't love taking us more solidly into the "sci fi!" genre, but still both definitely enjoyable.

Killjoys was renewed for 2 more seasons, so we'll get a 5 season story arc, and they'll have the opportunity to wrap the story up in a satisfactory manner.

Dark Matter, unfortunately, was really picking up steam in a mythology sense, and the creator has stated that he had a 5-year arc in mind, and that we'd see the payoff of a lot of the seeds planted this season throughout the next two. With that in mind, I'm 99.9% sure that the story of Dark Matter isn't over.

Even if they're not picked up by a Netflix or Hulu, Dark Matter actually started as a comic, with a 4-issue "proof of concept" series that covers the same material as the pilot. Cocreator Joseph Mallozzi comments on this on his blog and confirms that he is dedicated to telling the end of the story in some medium. He just needs some time to decide which.

I just wish we'd gotten to see all of Four's mercs and bounty hunters in action.

Thanks for the info, GWEK.
If a continuation is officially announced (in any media), I'll give it a watch.
I really don't want to get into a story to only have it end right in middle again.

I still think watching the show just for that time loop episode is worth it. I'm not sure it would be as funny if you didn't know the characters. I'm usually not a fan of any particular single episodes, especially since most of the great shows aren't episodic anymore, but that one reminds me of earlier days when shows like DS9 and TNG had their one off goofy episodes.

It sucks it was cancelled. It was worth watching while most stuff isn't.

There was a very similar time loop episode on STARGATE SG-1... not a big surprise, since the creators come from SG-1.
