  1. Really enjoy Sci Fi type shows and this is a great one. So glad it’s been renewed.
    Also heard great things about Killjoys, so now I’m looking forward to it knowing that it’s been renewed too.

    1. Yes Channel 4 have done a great job taking the bits of Real Humans and making a good fast paced drama out of them.

      The Dark Matter started off with stereotypes rather than characters and fairly ordinary stories. Having no memories didn’t provide anything to work with. By the end of the series they had developed it into a Blake’s 7 sort of thing. The writing isn’t great and they keep rewriting the characters every episode to suit what ever story they could come up with.
