Here it is, as promised.  The Dark Matter season 3 trailer for all to see:

I think the gang at Syfy did a fantastic job on this one.  Thoughts?  Anything jump out at you?

Hey, while we’re on the topic of Dark Matter’s third season, how about a few screen caps for discussion…

Okay.  Discuss!

May 20, 2017: The Dark Matter season 3 trailer is here!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

Yes, the Dark Matter season 3 trailer is finally here in all of its kickass 60 second glory!  You can watch it here…

Well, those of you living in the U.S. can watch it.  Unfortunately, those of you – actually, I should say US – living outside the U.S. can’t because the video is geoblocked. 😦

But fear not.  I’m getting a copy of the trailer and will upload it in tomorrow’s blog entry for your repeat viewing pleasure.  Until then, a few screen caps to tide you over…

Yes, looks like it’s going to be a pretty awesome season.

May 19, 2017: Dark Matter season 3 teaser!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

Well, it’s not quite the trailer but, today, Syfy International released a teaser for Dark Matter’s third season.  Check it out…

Okay, let’s break it down…

The destruction of space station EOS-7.

An explosion hot on TWO’s heels…literally.

The best laid plans blow up in Android’s face…again, literally.

Undercover FIVE.

Ryo Ishida looking downright villainous.

Some sort of shuttle avoiding weapons fire from a Ferrous Corp destroyer.

Some sort of guards (?), maybe soldiers (?) making their way into a dark facility.

FIVE pops out of hiding, and lets Bubba fly.

Intriguing, no? Discuss!

Speaking of videos, Suji did her very first Insta-live today.  She’s a natural…

A, uh natural apple slice eater that is.

May 18, 2017: Dark Matter contests!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

I’m looking to do a little late spring cleaning and one of the things I’d like to clear off my office shelf are a couple of cast-signed, annotated Dark Matter scripts. Would you happen to know anyone who might be interested in acquiring one?

Well, all you have to do for a chance to win one is to enter one of the following two contests I’ll be hosting over the next couple of weeks.

Contest #1: Match the dog teaser pictures to the upcoming season 3 episodes!

Oh, you remember how this one works.  If not, here’s a refresher…

In a nutshell – every year, Assistant Costume Designer Anna Dal Farr adorns the wardrobe department with dog pictures – one for each episode of the season. Upon closer scrutiny, one will notice that each pic is carefully selected to thematically reflected its paired episode.  So, for instance, last year…

May 17, 2017: Back in the Vancouver swing of things!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

Now that I’m back home, it’s time to hit up all of my favorite places and check in on many of my old friends.  Like Marginni at Jack who gave me a new summer do, Hodie at Xoxolat who helped me stock up on Ecuador dark chocolate bars, and Darlene and co. at The Book Warehouse and Jill and Walter (and dog Judd) at White Dwarf Books who recommended some great reads to add to my burgeoning to-read pile.  Toronto has a lot going on for it, but not much in the way of great bookstores.  Oh, don’t get me started.

I now do most of my reading via iBooks, but I will pick up physical copies of titles I’ve enjoyed.  I loved the hell out of Mark Lawrence’s Prince of Thorns, so it and the ensuing two books of the trilogy are destined for my home library.

May 16, 2017: Dark Matter season 3 promotional photos – and teasers!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

We’re about three weeks away from the Dark Matter season 3 double episode premiere…

In the U.S. – Friday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m. on Syfy

In Australia – Saturday, June 10th on SyfyAU

In the U.K. – Monday, June 12th at 8 p.m. on SyfyUK

For some reason, Canada’s SpaceChannel has been doing a terrific job keeping news about our show under wraps (nary a mention on either their official twitter feed or Facebook page) but I’ll just go ahead and spoil the surprise…

In Canada – Friday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m. on Space Channel.

Zoie Palmer’s Android had a number of different looks over the course of the show’s first two seasons – from blue uni to Android to the cream and white ensemble pictured above (and a couple of different undercover looks to boot).  And you can expect at least a half dozen new looks for…

May 14, 2017: Back in Van!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

I am pleased to report we are back home following a thoroughly uneventful flight from Toronto.  A 4:50 a.m. wake-up, much fussing and fretting over the dogs, a seemingly endless walk from one end of Pearson airport (check-in) to the other (our boarding gate), five straight hours of Preacher, and a slew of Vancouver errands, I am thoroughly exhausted.  And it isn’t even dinner time yet.

I think I might take it easy tonight.  Finish unpacking.  Do some laundry.  Take the dogs out for a walk.  Read.  And then tomorrow, it begins!  In the lead-up to the June 12th commencement of the Dark Matter season 4 writers’ room (with special guest star Carl Binder!), I’m going to try to spin an episode day.  That way, when it comes time to convene, I can just hand everyone the beat sheets and we can spend the better part of the day…

May 13, 2017: Final day in Toronto until….season four?

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

Almost finished packing.  Almost finished my farewells.  Tomorrow, we’re up at the crack of pre-dawn (5:00 a.m. here, 2 a.m. for those of you on the west coast, and 11:00 p.m. today for those of you in Hawaii) to catch our early flight back to Vancouver.

As always, my big concern is the dogs – chunky little Lulu and cantankerous Suji. We took them to a pug meet-up today and ran (well, okay, strolled) them ragged, then plan to follow up with a post-dinner night walk to make sure they nice and tired.  Akemi gave them some gravol the other day to see how they would react. Lulu snoozed peacefully for four hours while an unusually alert Suji spent the afternoon barking at the ceiling lights and reflections.  Hmmmm.  No breakfast tomorrow so, hopefully, they’ll be nice and empty for the flight.  Just in case though, we’ve got the diapers…
