Dark Matter

Has anyone been watching this? I have been and I have been enjoying it. It's not Star Trek, but it's people dressed funny, pretending they're on a starship, so there ya go.

I finally got myself the Season 1 boxset to see what it was like. Hadn't read anything about it, didn't know it was from a comic, so went in completely cold.

My first impressions is that it seems like the lovechild of Firefly and Deepwater Black--not necessarily a bad thing.

It's actually a pretty solid show, better than some other productions. It's in the same vein as Killjoys which I also enjoy.

I was sad to hear that it'd been cancelled after 3 seasons, but will be looking out for the boxsets when I get the chance (and after payday).

I watched the first season on Netflix. Got one episode into the second season and they pulled it from Streaming to DVD only. I am annoyed. I was going to finish watching it. But I was getting to where i liked it and had to admit I was a bit worried that they were going to wind up going "X-files" down the rabbit hole" deep in conspiracies. ANd make it so convoluted it wa not possible to see who was on what side.

Apparently, the third season has dropped on Netflix.

I will be watching before long.

The blog of the creater aid there was no dice bringing the thing to a new home, so it's done.

He's thinking about doing a comic to complete the arcs and lets us all know where it should have ended.

Based on your mentioning it here, I gave it a look, watching the first episode. I liked it. They kept me guessing as the episode progressed, and the concept is intriguing.

I plan on watching more.

(I haven't gotten a chance to watch Discovery yet which is why I haven't commented. Debating whether or not to sign up for the CBS free trial. )

Well word is that Dark Matter was not able to be saved, so it passes into history with three seasons.

I am almost finished watching the third. Iike it. I would borrow elements of it for Jay-Trek.

I'd borrow more for a generic swashbucking space fantasy game.

A friend referred me to a website in the dark and skeezy corners of the internet that has Discovery for streaming. I watched it there and I enjoyed it so far. Frankly, I think Orville is a little better, but I am willing to keep watching DSC and see where it goes.
