Killjoys Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Escape Velocity

It's funny, I too have completely fallen in love with this world and its inhabitants. What's really interesting to me is that with every episode, I find I forget that it's a new show! Something about the art design of this show has, to me, the look of a show from 10 to 15 years ago, yet the dialog and character interaction is very clearly being written now. Still something about the color choices, the "dirty-ness" of things, the lighting and costumes... just the entire look of the universe, feels like it's more "old school" scifi than modern - which in this case really WORKS! It did initially remind me of Firefly (I'm in the camp of people who had no idea that show existed until years after cancelation) and I had a feeling I'd like it, as long as the writing wasn't entirely insipid. Thankfully, it's pretty damn brilliant. From the major plot arcs to the tiny inter-personal banter moments... it's all just fantastic, and looks wicked too. Syfi, you guys had BETTER renew this show!! =) We're way too invested in the characters and their universe to lose them now.

That lived in feel is indeed "old school" in a Star Wars kind of way. This trio actually brings back memories of Leia, Luke and Han Solo for me. There's such great chemistry among the leads, it takes me back to those big sci-fi flicks of the 70s/80s while feeling quite modern as well. I can't wait for Syfy/Space to announce a renewal!

Yes! "Live in"! That's the perfect description. Their chemistry really IS excellent. I actually buy the brothers as brothers, and I feel the sexual tension between D'avin and Dutch, yet I think they've done a great job of having very solid reasons for keeping it at bay. I'm definitely hooked on this show. I discovered it by accident a few days after the first episode had premiered, and had no idea what it was, what to expect, etc. I didn't even realize it was a new show... for the first few episodes I actually thought it was an old show that was showing reruns, that I just never caught (one of those shows that didn't last, as often happens especially on Syfi...) After a couple episodes it was clear from the dialog that it was being written right now, which is when I realized this was actually a CURRENT show! From that point on, as each episode appeared in my streaming list, I would watch it almost immediately. Most shows I might wait a day or two to get around to them, but not Killjoys... I hadn't realized we just saw the season finale, and now I'm kinda pissed! Either it won't be renewed and we'll NEVER know what happens next, or it will get renewed and I have to wait until next year! Either way I feel like I lose. LOL Hands down, Killjoys is some of the best scifi I've seen in a very very long time. And I agree that it harkens back to Star Wars in some way. Not in any way that would be copying or even obviously paying tribute, but there's something about that look that feels less CGI and more practical FX work, and that's every original Star Wars indeed.

This is such a positive review to a really disjoint over the top episode. Let's stop all the action and hang out at a carnival and hallucinate as though any of this matters. Yeah. That works.

Star Trek Enterprise was the one with Scott Bakula as the Captain. Good grief! Patrick Stewart was in Star Trek The Next Generation, and it had much better ratings throughout, even the finale, which I thought could have been better. You might at least get it right. That show was way underrated.The Nielsens never like the good shows, anyway.

Karma, lets do a Tony quote,"we've had enough of your lies". Sick and tired of the crank of the week club that never sees anything good anymore on the show, and are too busy cranking on the net to even be paying attention to the show. Oh and personal opinions that attack the cast will be met with extreme derision.

No one is picking on her. They are merely disagreeing with what she says.

Yup I know that. There is a hyper sensitive group that doesn't like to be challenged while they are savaging cast members. We can be perhaps overzealous in our own counteroffensive, but I do know this I could never say or write the crap that these fans write about the cast and show. So jaded by the leaving of one cast member that they, take it out on others but think that it's unfair if they are challenged, that they are the victims, stalked , by the mean defenders of their opined inferior cast members or writing. It's kinda pathetic.

As in taking the concepts she is spouting as fact and highlighting flaws in her arguments and/or disagreeing with her conclusions. She is the one rampaging around the net having tantrums.

Yes. huge bummer. she is a drag on the show though I still watch for the rest. hopefully they will carry such a bad character once again but would be better without her imo

Bad Character? What bad character? The show is as successful as its ever been.

Apart from losingf millions of viewers and a significant chunk of the demo, you mean.

Avatar
@ agentscully514

And we have yet another proponent for the theory that Cote leaving NCIS is responsible for the changes in the way the entire western world watches TV. NCIS's is ranked in the top 3 in the US and is CBS/s number 2 for the demo you are claiming just as its been for the last few years. The Big BAng Theory's ratings have followed exactly the same pattern as NCIS's. Cote's leaving didn't make that happen either.

@ Claire

Exactly people are changing the way they watch TV. Streaming ,time shifting, a lot of this new pattern isn't measured by the rating service. Other shows have done worse in the new reality. It is what it is!

@ Claire

Did you know a show can be successful while having a bad character? Just like when those very few thought for 8 years Ziva was a bad character.

Her contract goes until the 8th episode this season. There have been no reports her contract is renewed.

And you know this how?
Oh, right! Silly me, Michael Weatherly follows you on Twitter. Since you're BFFs and stuff now, I'm sure you're a show insider.
In the past, new cast members were given three contracts, even Cote de Pablo.

Agentscully514
@ chris

it is public knowledge. She joined the show in season 11 episode 8, and she got the standard 2 year contract. It is public knowledge that all actors on the show have 2 year contracts. There has been no report that she renewed. If you have seen the report, please show it to us.

@ agentscully514

Since when do they have half year contracts?

Avatar
@ agentscully514

It was public knowledge that Harmon signed a 3 year contract just before de Pablo left, but that hasn't stopped you and others talking about him negotiating over the last few months. I have seen nothing publicly to indicate just how long Ms Wickersham's contract is, but my guess would be that it took her to the END of a season rather than expiring in the middle of one - which one that would be is another matter.

@ Lee

Yes, I am aware that you and your buddies hoever constantly over my twitter, waiting for me to say anything you can twist into wbat you consier eveil and criminal thoughts. And for the record, it was public knowledge Mark signed a 1 year congtract with optons to extend for two monre years.

@ agentscully514

2 yr with extension for 3. Actually it wasn't disclosed, except for multi year as stated by cbs. Obviously he got the third.

@ SusanLee

Don't trust her reports as fact. Emily didn't get signed until the 10th episode. She did three as recurring,which means she became a regular after the chrstmas episode, likely with an extension for two full seasons of the show. That would mean 12 and 13. No one really knows and conjecture is just that. Better chance catching a unicorn
