Storyline

The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With no idea whose side they are on, they face a deadly decision. Will these amnesiacs turn their backs on history, or will their pasts catch up with them?

Shades of Firefly
13 June 2015 | by vroya1860See all my reviews

Forget all the hater reviews and watch for yourself. Dark Matter has potential. No, they don't have awesome CGI special effects or unique sets - but they don't need it. There is no need to go over-the-top with the plot line as it stands. This show is more about the characters figuring out who they are, and deciding whether or not to follow the script laid out for themselves in life, or forging ahead and doing the "right" things and turning everything upside-down in the process.

Yes, some of the characters start off pretty predictably, but so what. Show me complete originality in any new TV series or movie these days. For the plot thus far, these characters will work.

I for one have been waiting a number of years for another good SciFy Western, and with just a wee bit of effort and refinement, Dark Matter could become a suitable successor to Firefly. For now, I'll give it a solid 8 - for a pilot

I just hope it lasts...
