Everything about Dark Matter, eh?

Link: Dark Matter: Joseph Mallozzi talks “All the Time in the World”

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter: Joseph Mallozzi talks “All the Time in the World”
“I knew the guy I wanted in the time loop would be Three. Anthony just nailed it, he was terrific in this episode. Then it was just making use of his forte; besides his comic abilities, his knowledge of the French language, which figured in quite nicely as well.” Continue reading.

Dark Matter: Things gets loopy in Episode 4

Here’s what Anthony Lemke told us about the character of Three heading into Dark Matter‘s third season:

“Three’s through-line story has been about his past and discovering that a bad guy isn’t all bad. We learned in Season 2 the root of that complexity; he is a caring and very soft person, but that bravado is real too. Both of those sides live within this character and that’s what makes it fun to play. When he says, ‘Let’s go steal stuff and kill some people,’ he means it. We continue on that journey in Season 3.”

He also laughed and smacked the table as he teased the adventures Three gets into this year. Well, Dark Matter fans, this Friday’s new episode “All the Time in the World,” is one of the key storylines Lemke was talking about. With Sarah alive as a computer program and accessible to him—and a part of his past life open—here’s what Space’s official synopsis is for the instalment:

Unbeknownst to the rest of the crew, THREE has been trapped in a time loop, reliving the same day over and over.

And here are some spoiler-free tidbits we can add about the episode, written by Joseph Mallozzi and directed by Ron Murphy.

Two is non-plussed about Three’s behavior

Here we go again. And again. And again.
We’ve gotten a mere peek at Anthony Lemke’s comic timing over the past two seasons. This week’s script allows him to go full-on and it’s a goshdarn treat. I won’t give anything away but I’ll admit I watched pretty much every scene Three was in with a stupid grin on my face. Even the soundtrack in those scenes is different, with a funky bass thump to note this isn’t your usual Dark Matter episode.

The Android is Three’s partner in crime
Zoie Palmer + Anthony Lemke = belly laughs.

Speaking of The Android…
Fans are going to be blown away by her storyline during the latter third of the episode. We’re going to be talking about this for weeks.

The bounty hunters disperse
Remember the lineup of baddies Ryo ordered to find the crew of the Raza? Well, it happens.

Dark Matter airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on Space.

Link: Sci-fi TV doesn’t have to be prestige – it can just be fun

From Adam Rogers of Wired:

Link: Sci-fi TV doesn’t have to be prestige – it can just be fun
“We’re unabashedly genre, committed to the source material, not trying to be for everybody,” says Emily Andras, showrunner on the wonderfully daft Wynonna Earp (she’s a descendant of the famous gunfighter who kills demons with a magic gun [Earp, not Andras]). Andras suggests calling it “batshit genre,” but I have a different term in mind: commodity sci-fi. Continue reading.

Link: Dark Matter: Joseph Mallozzi talks “Welcome to the Revolution”

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter: Joseph Mallozzi talks “Welcome to the Revolution”
“One of the things that One offered, and Six offered as well, is that moral drive. Even though that’s very much Five as well, she has her hands full with so many other things, she’s not really the one to say that the crew has to take up the mantle of this good cause. Who knows, maybe it’ll be something that will fall on her to do in the future, but that remains to be seen.” Continue reading.

Dark Matter ups the ante—and welcomes returning faces—in Episode 3

Season 3 of Dark Matter has certainly kicked off with a bang, hasn’t it? After some initial distress, the remaining team members successfully reunited by the end of last Friday’s two-part return. Now they fly into uncharted territory as they seek out Ryo and punish him for killing Nyx, something he didn’t do. But, you know, misinformation is a bitch right?

Here’s what Space has officially revealed is the storyline for this week’s new episode, “Welcome to the Revolution,” written by Joseph Mallozzi and directed by Steve DiMarco.

After receiving a distress call from a former associate, the crew of the Raza find themselves in the middle of a colony’s fight for independence.

And here are some spoiler-free tidbits we can add after watching the episode.

The most notorious in the galaxy?
Our crew’s legendary tales are far-reaching and scores them respect—and drinks—from a group of folks that includes guest star Rachael Ancheril, most recently seen in Season 1 of Wynonna Earp. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for Dennis Andres of Workin’ Moms in a pivotal role.

Look who’s back!
The Raza crew have come across some very interesting and entertaining characters over the past two seasons and one of them returns on Friday. Yes, that’s the “former associate” hinted at in the synopsis, and we were giddy as soon as we saw their face in the “previously on” teaser. This person’s situation results in an intense head-to-head between Two and Six over when they should fight and who they should fight for. Who do you think gets their way?

Sarah returns, too
Anthony Lemke told us Season 3 delves into Three’s journey, and that means one thing: more Sarah! Yup, Natalie Brown is back in “Welcome to the Revolution,” but not in a way you’d expect and it has a stunning effect on Three. We can’t wait to see where this story goes.

Ryo plays his game
I worried I’d lose interest in Four after he ascended the throne as Ryo, but he’s become one heck of a compelling character. Everyone has an end game, but what is Ryo’s? And why is he playing his court against one another?

Dark Matter airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on Space.
