The second season finale of Dark Matter (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) – But First, We Save the Galaxy – brings the crew of the Raza to Eos-7 to try to prevent a war between the corporations. It’s the first Council of Corporations face-to-face meeting in over a decade (these people really don’t trust each other…).

What began as a series about mind-wiped six strangers on a spaceship has evolved into one where they’ve learned who they were and chosen not to be those people anymore. That decision put them in the surprising position of becoming something of an unheralded group of interstellar Robin Hoods – while leaving them among the most wanted (former) criminals in the galaxy.

The second season finale could have been a series finale with a very few adjustments, but with the show’s renewal, it is, instead, a really good season finale.

How To Kill Friends and Influence People offers answers to burning questions; lots of action and banter, and unexpected sacrifice. If Eric Frank Russell were alive today, he’d definitely approve.

AnthonyCFerrante

I first met Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens Director Anthony C. Ferrante at a SyFy channel event a few years ago. I didn’t know who he was, but Sharknado was the talk of Comic-Con that year. Everywhere I went people made jokes about it, even a lot of the celebrities that I talked to. The first film touched a cultural nerve, now 4 years later and the franchise is still going strong. The movie debuts on SyFy Channel this week (Sunday, July 31st)

Dark Matter’s first season cliffhanger left us hanging with the crew of the Raza being carted off by Galactic Authority as a result of being betrayed by Six.

The season two premiere (Welcome to Your New Home (this season the eps have titles!) begins with Two, Three and Four going through contamination as they enter a high security prison on an airless moon. Things can only get better from there, right?

There are a lot of parallels between Wynonna Earp and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – being the Chosen One/Heir, being a bit of a troublemaker, having a younger sister and, oh, yeah, being tasked with slaying evil supernatural entities.

The primary big differences are: not having Joss Whedon writing/producing her exploits; having a much smaller budget, and being more a Western in Purgatory rather than a High School is Hell scenario.
