I WON'T waste time by telling what the show is about as its stated above, so..

Going on the first episode, the people who are comparing this show to "Firefly" and "Stargate Universe" are probably correct in little bits, the few comparisons I drew on..

1. crew of people wanted/outcasts/outlaws/on the run?. (Firefly)
2. the ship - big, dark, mysterious, locked doors with secrets.
(SGU)
3. hunted by mysterious unknown ship. (SGU)
4. weird twisted back stories of crew. (SGU/Firefly)
5. the settings/props/scenes. (Firefly/SGU/Farscape)

The shows first episode seems to border on a mix of those three shows i stated above, which i suppose is good, as 2 of the 3 shows were excellent, SGU being NOT so much.

People are NOT remembering.. the show's Executive Producers are
the guys behind Stargate, so they ARE going to draw on similarities and things from that show and have stated that the show WILL have a sense of humor/comedy in it.. so on them stating that and after watching episode 1.. i'm thinking the humor/comedy will lean more towards a darker/twisted sense of humor BUT who knows? it might turn out to be humor from Farscape.. LOL! let's hope rygel (Farscape) and Vala (SG-1) turn up.. NOW! that would be a sense of humor that would kill the most hardened of people, those two CRACKED ME UP!

EDIT: I seriously HOPE they start introducing different worlds and stuff cos three episodes in and it's just mostly been stuck on the ship, that's going to get boring very quick if the rest of the season is going to be like this.

Season 1: 8/10
Season 2:

It snuck up on me and made me like it. I didn't know from the first episode that I would get so into it.

Quite liking this show so far.. sure the set may look very star trekkie and retro but who cares? I like the idea behind it and watching how the characters interact with each other. Fingers crossed that it will hold this rating throughout.

Think of every cliched character from the sci-fi genre, well, from any genre and put them all on a spaceship. I can't watch another second, it's just that bad.

The first thing i thouth when i watcht the pilot was, Havn't we done this already?? big starship al alone in the univers venting atmosfeer, just bearly safing the lifes on board. (first thing pops i my head Stargate Univers but there are more i think)
But SyFy is my genre the thing i love the most so i didn't mind. The plot gets better in time. The crwe dosn't now who thay are (i think that is done before too) and afther i wile (sorry spoiler if you havn't seen the pilot epp.) thay find out thay all are wanted killers so it's a little bit the question nature vs. nuture (ok that is in my head it isn't controling the show) I have watch 3 eppisodes now and i think i am hookd to this show (and in epp. 5 & 6 David Hewlett aka McCay (Stargate Atlantis/SG-1) is playing a gast roll so than i am really in lol)

The cast is intresting. from the 7 leads there are 3 Actors wo havn't done that mutch. and only 2 who have playd in big shows (no reel leads) So i think a higly motivated cast.

Only thing i had some problems whit was the names of the carecters thay calt 1, 2, 3, etc. that makes it harder to remember who is who but it is somthing you get the hang off realy fast.

The pilot is sort of slow, but asks interesting questions. It isn't until the last 5 seconds, with a huge twist that things start to get really interesting. I don't necessarily agree with putting the most interesting thing in the pilot in the last 5 seconds, but after having seen the second episode I can proudly say that Dark Matter is going to be awesome.

It is sort of similar to Firefly, drawing on the space opera and heavy character development paradigms. It's hard to describe what makes it different without spoilers, but take my word for it that this team is quite different from the firefly crew, as well as their goals. It's an action packed show, with a good cast, great set design, and a whole lot of fun.

S01E12 - The worst writing ever is shown at the end of the Episode - when the Android gets yet AGAIN taken out of commision for what? The third time the same way? Seriously? OMG, how pathetic ARE you writers????Unable to write a new idea , oh yeah, and UNUSED for a change? Please don't answer! Just do us all and me a favor and GET a diffrent Job!!!! This seems to be a VIRUS running thru all the other shows in this Country. Hey, if u don't have a new idea-than- let's just use something we used a few episodes in the past- people aren't paying attention anyway-right? WRONG!!!!!!!
