Killjoys Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Full Metal Monk

20 August 2016 4:07 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It feels like the second season is building toward an explosive finale.

All the puzzle pieces are fitting snugly into place, and I'm officially fearing for the lives of some of our favorite characters. Do you think the writers would kill off someone like Alvis or Pawter? Well, Killjoys Season 2 Episode 8 made it seem like no one's safe.

And who the hells is Aneela anyway? I need more answers, guys.

The opening scene of the episode really set the tone for the entire hour. Sure, there were your typical light "Killjoys" moments, but the series went to some dark places here and I'm afraid things are only going to get worse from this point forward.

Dutch confronting Johnny was gut-wrenching. Even though most of us understand his desire to help Pawter and the folks of Old Town, the lying was a tough pill to swallow. »

Killjoys Season 2 Episode 6 Review: I Love Lucy

5 August 2016 8:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Fembot Lucy was everything. And that kiss, you guys! 'Nuff said.

How do Michelle Lovretta and her writing team manage to cram so much sci-fi goodness into one episode? Every week I say, "That was my favorite Killjoys episode." This week with Killjoys Season 2 Episode 6, it's absolutely true.

Tons of new info was revealed. Yeah this was a good one!

This episode's opening echoed the nasty Skeevers of the last installment, only slightly more fun. For a moment, I had no idea who the hooded dude was though he sounded like D'avin. "You gave me acid?" D'av asked the old trickster.

Wasn't it hilarious the way the old fart took off thinking he'd outsmarted a pair of Killjoys? Good thing little brother was around and had a plan. Those brotherly moments between Luke and Aaron are super believable. They're a blast to watch!

Throw Dutch into the mix and that's »

Killjoys Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Schooled

23 July 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It was Delle Seyah's turn to resurface this time. Now we know she's in with Khlyen.

Though both those characters seemed like the villains last season, Killjoys Season 2 Episode 4 continued to blur the lines between the good guys and baddies. Yes, Khlyen has done some terrible things, but I no longer think he is the enemy.

I thought the brother angle was touching, and it helped John and D'av bond a bit more.

Based on the "previously on Killjoys" intro, it was clear Delle Seyah Kendry was back to cause Dutch and the boys some grief. She is one of those characters we just love to hate and Mayko Nguyen plays her to perfection.

The screaming-person-in-a-pod threw me for a moment, because I kept thinking of Khlyen. Last time we saw our favorite silver fox, he was trapped by the Black Root though Level 6 Fancy was at his side. »

Killjoys Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Wild, Wild Westerley

8 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

In typical Killjoys fashion, a ton of stuff went down during this action-packed hour.

However, it's safe to say that Killjoys Season 2 Episode 2 was all about returning home and to the rest of the gang missing from the premiere. As Michelle Lovretta teased in our exclusive interview, "It's the beginning of really emotionally, I think, compelling and classic science fiction type storylines."

I'm still bummed about how Hills went out, but I think Jelco is a brilliant adversary.

Was that mirror bit at the top a hint there are multiple Dutch's out there? Clones? Alvis mentioned that scarbacks hadn't stepped foot on Arkyn for over 200 years. So how did D'av see Dutch killing them in that "very old memory"?

Is it possible Khlyen (via the green-goo) was implanting memories in D'av or is their some truth to what he saw? What the hells is going on, guys? So many cool »

Syfy’s Killjoys are back in action, having reunited with D’Avin, unearthed new questions about the mysterious Khlyen and made a couple of friends (in Clara and “Alice”) in the Season 2 opener alone.

Killjoys Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Dutch and the Real Girl

1 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Good ol' D'avin said it best early in the episode, "Missed you bastards!"

Luckily for us, this is no green-goo induced dream and Killjoys is finally back for another run. I am thrilled we get to spend another season with this incredible cast and crew. I can't even imagine not getting a third season, so I'm starting the #RenewKilljoys campaign early.

I didn't see the twists of Killjoys Season 2 Episode 1 coming, which is part of the fun.

Let me start by saying I loved that this installment picked up right where we left off, and that we didn't spend three episodes searching for D'avin. At just 10 episodes per season, there's really no time to waste.

While the tighter storytelling does away with any filler episodes, it also means the season will be over far too quickly. Take Game of Thrones for example, we've got to wait a year now to return to Westeros. »

TV Review: ‘Killjoys’ and ‘Dark Matter’

24 June 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

I hope you have a “Killjoys” in your life.

Killjoys” returns to Syfy July 1, and settling in to watch this show never fails to put me in a happy place. Some TV shows effortlessly tick a large number of the boxes you want them to tick and throw in a few more goodies just for fun, and “Killjoys” is that show for me. My affection for “Killjoys” might border on the unreasonable, but I can summon enough objectivity to assess its overall strengths and weaknesses. There are a lot of the former, very few of the latter. It’s a light, well-made, zippy TV show that knows what it is and delivers solid action, adventure and character development despite its limited budget. The cast has terrific chemistry, and the second season of the show ably builds on the strengths of the quite enjoyable first. 

Of course, I like some existential despair-inducing TV — if you’re a TV »
