This was a great episode! Khlyen is very complicated and I'm wondering what the deal really is with him. BTW, I love both Killjoys AND Dark Matter. The last couple of Dark Matter episodes were very good at giving us emotional connections with the characters, and especially three, who likely seemed the most shallow from the first. I want BOTH of them back. 10 episodes??? are you shitting me?? and to stick them on Friday really makes me mad. You'd think that SyFy didn't really want to actually MAKE SCIENCE FICTION SHOWS SUCCESSFUL!! I'm annoyed at them for the scheduling decisions they've made this year. Separating #Dominion from Defiance and moving it to 10 and then packaging all the rest of the SciFi on Friday....What are they thinking?? Thursdays at 10 is a hard sell - i think there will be a lot of DVRing. Davin was very vulnerable in this Killjoys episode. Made him more sympathetic and not the asshole older brother.

Does anyone know the song playing when Mike doing his vision work? Tried soundhound & shazam and they didnt find anything. Cant find using pasting the lyrics into google. Sites like tunefind that list songs for episodes of shows... And people also wondering. Anyone know here???

I'm still scratching my head over Under the Dome, CSI:Cyber and Stalker. Under the Dome got so ridiculous that I couldn't even hate watch it any more. CSI: Cyber was hard for me to get into even though I like the actors on the show. CSI seemed to be finding its feet again with Ted Danson and they canceled it for Cyber??? Nope. Stalker was a good, creepy show. I enjoyed it a lot and can't figure out why it didn't gain traction with audiences. I liked Scorpion at first, but they started repeating themselves and I quit watching. Yet, audiences really liked it.

Stalker had a following. It just struggled to keep up the momentum after a near 3 month hiatus and a new night and time.

stalker was NEVER going to be renewed after feminists groups viciously attacked it as anti-woman even before it aired. No way CBS was going to go up against that bad PR nightmare.

Killjoys Season 1 Episode 6 Review: One Blood

So my comments from last night didn't post and I had to rewrite them. They got longer. A couple of direct responses; first up, I’m not sure Dutch was so much teasing D’Avin about Pawter as she was letting him know that everyone knows about him and Pawter; as in “someone” talks too much. That might explain why D’Avin wasn’t too thrilled to see her later and wanted to cool the relationship. This is the second time Arkyn has
been dismissed as a dead moon so I’m thinking something is there; nothing to see here folks, move along. Fancy Lee got the best lines of the show (imo) with his commentary on the designated
asshole of the organization “that is my gift to the Killjoy collective.” And also came back later in the epi twice; when he killed Big Joe (someone had to do it) and when Johnny said he was going to be the designated asshole and talk to Dutch. I re-watched the death scene a few times and I think Johnny understood the cost to Fancy. Did you notice that Fancy very deliberately sits with his back to the room? As for Khlyen; it doesn’t confuse me at all that he calls her Yala, it’s her name. Dutch is a nickname. What intrigues me about Khlyen is his occupation (Spymaster?/Master
of Assassins?) “All of the company and most of the RAC would kill to know what I know [sic]” and then “Knowing things is what keeps us safe.” For whatever reason he chose Yala as a student he did and his teachings put a bullseye on her back. Turning her back on those teachings (officially) doesn’t change anything in the larger scheme of things—if one is to look at the history of Imperial court and other political intrigue. As for the overall impact of said intrigue we can now start to maybe see a pattern. We have a ‘blacklist weapon’ that kills based on genetic markers, a military doctor with a history of tampering with memories, a soldier with a deliberately blocked memory, and a Royal “tutor” of assassinations all come to the Quad at the same time. That
Dutch, a royal run-a-way of sorts, who is already in system is a ‘convenient’
happenstance and a good translator for everything going on. All this is my brain in file mode after thinking about the war everybody seems to think is coming. It’s been implied that the battle lines, when the war comes, will be about class but what if it’s more a civil war from within the ruling class? It wouldn’t be the first time an Empire has fallen to war over the politics at court. And having court infighting spill out into the view of the common people could easily spark the class war (I don't think it would take much to set the tinder a blaze). Okay, I’m done my history lecture. I like it that Johnny knew who Khlyen was when Dutch said his name. Johnny didn’t so much as blink—he simply jumped right into ‘hide Dutch mode’ and started getting ready to go off grid. D’Avin needed the explanation as to who Khlyen is but Johnny was not as in the dark as I has feared.

We get more and more story each week which is awesome. My thoughts A) Im not sure Khylen is entirely.. human. When they show him in the past and the present his appearance isnt too different. Its quite possible hes had work done to make him harder to kill (Organ replacement etc) which also makes him a better killer. If you noticed he was was breathing as normal in the Cafe which may mean he cant be killed by the Gas. B) Fancy Lee I can visualise has his own ship and AI. an AI that he has probably worked on (like John has with Lucy) to be his 'best' friend. So hes right.. he dosnt need anyone else. But he has some awesome tech. I kinda feel hes very much like John. C) Dutch still to me is scared of him. Around him she tends to be more defensive (even if she is sounding aggressive). The look on her face after she had stabbed him repeatedly tells you everything you need to know here. D) To be honest, its obvious that Pawter has fallen for D'avin far more than D'avin has for her. I dont think thats a bad thing, but I think tying Pawter in the show by proxy through D'avin is a bad thing. It limits what you can do with the character. E)The Genetic Bomb thing was awesome. We dont know the full range, but Ive a feeling it was perhaps developed by one of the 9 families to kill another one. My theory on the 9 is that they are the 9 biggest shareholders in the Company.

Couldn't even make it for 10 minutes. They are about as interesting as tin foil. Major pass.

Best episode so far indeed. It all came together. Mason's dead, Hannibal is going to jail, Will finally let go of his Hannibal frenzy and came back to reality. Feels damn good, don't it ! And the review was spot on ! Looks like the procedural side of things is back as well! Hooray !

I love the first few seasons, but the show has grown stale for me.
