And, while I'll never forgive this show for killing off Nyx Harper... I decided to return...

Overall, it's really sad that this story is going to end in the middle of the book without even having the chance to wrap things up properly, but Dark Matter has been an amazing ride from start to finish.

Aside from the fact that Syfy was overdue for more spaceship stories, what I find most appealing is how it resembles pulpy, entertaining shows like Farscape, Firefly, and Stargate.

What keeps the stories so episodic is just how randomly it often feels like Dark Matter chooses to return to different storylines.

Whatever shape the coming season takes, though, Dark Matter is right in its stride from the very start.

Arguably the most interesting of the groups were Five, Truffault and The Android. The way they managed to easily take down the Ferrous Corp soldiers was awesome, and it inspires strong females.

In a veritable wasteland populated by reality shows, Dark Matter continues to be my much appreciated oasis.

Audience Reviews for Dark Matter: Season 3

  • Oct 16, 2018
    Season 3 of Dark Matter is a little bizarre (going off the rails a bit), but still delivers thrilling and action-packed adventures. After the destruction of the space station EOS-7 the Raza takes on new crew members and attempts to recover the blink drive from Ryo; meanwhile Ryo becomes more desperate as the tides of the war turns against him and his own people begin to rebel. While the overall season story arc is pretty strong, there are a lot of crazy subplots with the Raza traveling back in time to 21st century Earth, Two discovering a secret history with the Android, Sarah turning into an A.I. program within the ship's computer, and an extra-dimensional alien invasion. Still, all the chases and fight scenes are especially well-done, and add a lot of excitement and intensity to the episodes. And the finale delivers a game-changing cliffhanger that leaves the audience in suspense. Yet Season 3 is so scattershot that SyFy putted the plug on Dark Matter, bringing the Raza's journey to an end.

    The first season of Dark Matter was pretty good, the second was a little better and this season was excellent. More interesting stories and better character development coupled with epic visuals make this the best season by far, with the last three episodes being some of the best sci fi I have watched. Such a shame that it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger that may never get resolved.

    It’s so damn irritating that the dumb asses can’t re-new this show for 4 episodes to wrap things up. FU

    Best Sci Fi show! Deserves a place right up there with Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly. Absolutely heartbroken it was cancelled in yet another silly move by networks. If anyone is smart they will pick this show up right away.

    Love it!! even without the big budget for the warship Scenes. And the sprinkle of cheese. great characters I'd pay to see more of. And gripping story line. Why is this CAncElled!??

    I really enjoy this show. It's an interesting story line and the character development keeps coming. The moral questions of good and evil, the corporations corruption of society is timely. Watch, you won't be disapointed.

    Absolutely wonderful show. Quirky sci-fi show that can tell a good story without taking itself too seriously, but also without ridiculous technobabble or mindless MacGuffins created by writers that don't understand sci-fi. So, of course it was cancelled! "It doesn't matter if it's good, only if it makes money" -Mark Hamill

    Overall I have enjoyed it. It’s sad to see it end as it was getting very interesting, would loved to see how they deal with the new threat. Good show bit of change from those BS reality shows.

    F***king awesome. This show kicks Star Trek's butt up and down the street. SyFy needs it's figurative head examined for cancelling this series. They should get the "oh shit we really f***ed up award" for best show with a cult following, cancelled by network executives. Hey Netflix, why don't you take advantage of SyFy's F***up and scoop this gem up for your lineup.
