I’ve periodically written about how the Syfy network seems to be making a push to get back some of their glory in being a premiere source of Science Fiction and Fantasy TV. Since last year they have been introducing a full menu of shows, both original and imported from other networks. Their latest teasers have given us something new that puts us again right in the middle of space.
THE KILLJOYS is about a group of interstellar bounty hunters that look like you wouldn’t want to be on the other side of the law with them chasing your tail. It doesn’t feel like a major budget kind of show, but the fun might be there. Look for the premiere June 19th.
DARK MATTERS – A group of people wake up on a spaceship with no memory of who they are or why they are there. But somehow they each have skills that will help them on the ship. First of all, I love seeing Roger Cross show up in my SciFi TV shows. I’ve been a fan of his all the way back since the show FIRST WAVE premiered on the “Sci-Fi’ Channel back in the late 90s. And there are other unfamiliar faces that might bring some fresh performances. Dark Matter premieres June 12th.
