Yep, I think watching all 4 episodes when my screener arrived gave me a better feel for this show. It's around episode 3 that the "family unit" really starts to shine. Perhaps that's my issue with Dark Matter. I've been watching weekly and haven't really connected with a particular character. I'm interested in the mystery, but the show is just not a fun as Killjoys. Who knows, if I had binged on 4 or 5 episodes I might feel differently. It's just a slower burn, which isn't a bad thing.
I'm with you Marissa, just 3 episodes in and I love these characters! All of them, including D'av and now Pawter as well. I think their relationship is going to be interesting and might let us see another side to D'avin. Lucy rules!
David, you can find her on Twitter. Her name is Hannah Anderson.
Excellent review Caralynn! I'm with you, I was very impressed with Mr. Robot. This show was barely on my radar, but it might just become one of my summer faves. Rami Malek blew my mind, and you're right it's hard to imagine he's not like Elliot in real life. His performance and the clever writing are enough to keep me coming back for more. And welcome to TV Fanatic! I look forward to reading your reviews.
Yep, Killjoys airs Fridays at 9/8c... A great night of sci-fi TV!
Thanks Denise, I appreciate that. I try to share my favorite moments and ask questions that I feel might be story points moving forward. Since I like the show, my reviews will never be a straight up critique. Those types of reviews are boring anyway ;)
D'avin has issues sure, but he becomes much more of a team player as the series moves along. I like the character and his relationship with Johnny felt very real. He caused some trouble, yet his suspicions about Dutch are valid. He's looking out for his younger brother.
Hey there, first off thanks for the compliment. I'm so glad you enjoyed my review. Thank you for leaving a comment too, I work hard on these and love when folks share their thoughts with me. I also had the screeners, but was live-tweeting along with everyone else last night. The episodes get better with each viewing! I'll be sharing your podcast weekly via Twitter... Great stuff!
I went back to that scene at the Cut-Wife's house and Evelyn was careful to hide her face. Vanessa never actually saw her. Frankenstein's monsters definitely have super strength. Dorian's story arc is the slowest for me but I feel like more information is coming before the end of this season. Mr. Lyle might not survive the season, but he will help our heroes ultimately.
You're absolutely right about Vanessa's possession last time she and Dorian had sex. I'm just really rooting for her and Ethan. Lily is definitely not done killing... I think she likes it.
