Editorial Reviews

Dark Matters takes you inside the laboratory to profile strange science and expose some of history's most bizarre experiments. It explores questions some say should not be asked. Using astonishing virtual sets, Dark Matters tells dramatized stories of science on the dark and ragged edge of human understanding, where experiments can be ethically controversial and the results can be mind-blowing.

Customer Reviews

Very interesting show.
Benji Gonzalez
Love the subject matter and some interesting nuggets can be learned but very superficial, not an indepth study of any of the subjects.
Teresa Pietersen
It was too slow and boring.

John Noble (From Fringe, Walter Bishop) is the perfect host for this quirky science show. I hope it does get renewed for another season because I have enjoyed every episode. Each episode presents three different stories in the history of science, each story is voiced by John Noble very well. The show is not for the faint of heart and talks about very controversial things that happened in science that most people have never heard of. If you enjoy a good mystery and science, then give this series a chance.

This is the first season of this fascinating and entertaining television program about science and scientists. It presents a different perspective of many famous (and some not very well known) scientific ideas, experiments, discoveries and advances and the people responsible for them. There is more of an onus on the darker/creepier side than you'd typically find in a history book, and while it is served up in documentary style, it also is put forward in a story telling manner and is portrayed through dramatizations by actors. It is both educational and entertaining.

This show tells you the history that school doesn't. Excellent presentation and acting. This show really makes you think about what the government and news shows are not telling us.

Being one who independently researches the obscure and taboo, the dark and twisted, much of what is presented in this show may seem far-fetched to most who accept our world as bland and boring, lacking anything worthwhile, yet for me, it makes perfect sense.
A lot of very dark history to our scientific history. Things that shouldn't make sense in any normal way shows that "normalcy" can be a byproduct of the surreal. Scientific projects gone entirely awry, and others that were successful (for a time being), and others that I've read documented proof on some of the stuff on this show, including the mysterious object known only as "The Bell" and how it had permanently disappeared, seemingly, from existence. And, though I already knew about a mysterious object falling over Russia and exploding before touching the ground, I never thought it could've been connected to Nikola Tesla. That simply adds a new layer of peculiarity to the whole mystery in itself.
Bonus point for the show: John Noble being the narrator (he was one of the best characters in Fringe as Walter Bishop, so no wonder I got excited to see him hosting this show)!

Very interesting show. I hope they add more episodes soon. My review is too short so it ends right now!

Precisely... I adore leaning those odd and strange factoids with well researched and deftly explained details. Anything that makes me sit and gape in wonder is decent in my world. Although the "re-enactment" scenes are done in a simplistic style that I don't find as interesting as the information itself, I can look past it. If they did an overhaul of that one element, I do believe this could be a 5 star series. I also wouldn't mind fleshing out the stories a bit more, as well. Do give it a try though.

Great series. I learned a lot of things, and discovered a few more mysteries that I need to uncover, I recommend this series to any conspiracy theory enthusiast.

This program provided me with new information on events, some of which I had never known at all. I don't enjoy spoilers, so, if that will bother you here, please skip the next paragraph.

One of the sections in this 3-part coverage concerned Thomas Edison's battle with Westinghouse over DC vs AC electricity. In order to prove that his DC was better (safer), Edison partnered with a man and they, eventually, gained permission to perform the first death by electric chair. I never knew this. It was a horrible blemish on Edison, and one that affects somewhat the way I now view him.

The show presents the stories well, with enough detail to be fascinating. I didn't see the usual showmanship that goes so far overboard with these types of shows. What I saw was a true representation of the events backed with the facts that were available.

Excellent first show!
