Killjoys: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
Killjoys has just the right mix of guns, high-tech knives, assassins, cage fights, missions to hostile planets, dark secrets, tiny robot weapons and general space headbutting thrills to be the perfect treat for Friday nights.
It has enough "fun" elements to not be written off completely, but to call it anything more than "fun" would be false.
The overall result is an edgy and suspenseful romp that does more than just frantically recycle tropes, making Killjoys one mosh pit you might want to jump back into.
Cursing, constant violence in alluring, quippy sci-fi show.
Audience Reviews for Killjoys: Season 1
From the creator of Lost Girl comes the sci-fi action series Killjoys. The show follows a group of interstellar bounty hunters known as Killjoys, and in Season 1 Dutch and her partner Johnny rescue Johnny's estranged brother, who then decides to join their team; meanwhile a mysterious man from Dutch's past re-emerges and attempts to pull her back into the assassin's life that she fled. Lead actress Hannah John-Kamen gives a strong performance and is especially good in the femme fatale role (having a shadowy past that she's running from). However, the storytelling is rather clunky at times; throwing out a lot of exposition to setup the different planets, cultures, and the backstories. Yet the writing for the main characters is really strong, which makes them quite compelling and the heart of the show. Season 1 of Killjoys is a little uneven and convoluted, but it's also entertaining and has a lot of raw potential.
A fun show with an inconsistent pace, Killjoys will entertain most except the die hard sci-fi fans.
