I've read the book, and if it's half as good, it will be brilliant.

Update - and it's even been mentioned on XKCD today...

I have the audiobook and the original (copyright free) book. It's not bad at all, I am definitely looking forward to this one.

It's getting really quite good reviews - one said it's the best thing on SF TV since Firefly.

That's being rather generous



You wait years and years for a new space-based SF series, and then two come along at the same time: Dark Matter and Killjoys.

Both are watchable, but neither one (so far) is particularly great.

Seen Dark Matter, not seen Killjoys yet.

Dark Matter was OK.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Killjoys is from the creator of Lost Girl so I was expecting better than what it was.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Given how Lost Girl has been getting worse each year, I wasn't really expecting much from it anyway.

Really ?

Thats not my view of it.

It was average at best, I'll keep going with it for now.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Yup, totally average.


I think that the best space-based SF we've had since Firefly are Battlestar Galactica and Stargate.


Killjoys is nowhere near on a par with any of those (nor is Dark Matter).

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

I think people are expecting a bit too much from it.. I did suggest it was a "B" series and you should view it as such.

Marvel's Agents of Shield season 3 - The secret warriors are coming!

Coulson and Team to Encounter Characters
Inspired by the “Secret Warriors” Comics

S.H.I.E.L.D. Ambassadors Will Engage Fans at San Diego Comic-Con
to Join Secret Warriors With Limited Edition Pins!

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a powerful third season introducing new friends and foes inspired by the critically acclaimed “Secret Warriors” comic series. In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and assemble an extraordinary new team to deal with threats unlike the world has ever seen. However, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon find out they're not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans
Also Gotham news

Quote:
Jessica Lucas, who recently wrapped a run on Fox’s Gracepoint, has landed the Season 2 role of Tabitha Galavan aka Tigress, TVLine has learned exclusively.

On the DC Comics-based drama, Tabitha is the lead enforcer for her brother Theo, a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over Gotham (and to be played by go-to bad guy James Frain). Described as sexy and violent — and toting a bullwhip! — she’s the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making.
