From Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the authors behind the Stargate series, and the studio that brought you Lost Girl, comes Dark Matter, an intergalactic story of strangers chasing their pasts towards an uncertain future.
Buried in the black murk of space, a stowed-away crew suddenly awakens from stasis aboard the castaway space ship known as the “Raza.” With no memory of their pasts or why they are onboard in the first place, this rag-tag crew has no choice but to roam the frontiers of the galaxy searching for answers.
On their voyage they encounter rebel space armies, a zombiefied ship crew, derelict androids, and intergalactic bounty hunters—all attempting to pull the team further from the truth. Even the Raza itself contains mysteries that the crew must solve. As they journey through space, these seven strangers begin to discover that the biggest obstacle standing in the way of their pasts may not be the danger waiting around every corner, but the darkness lurking within themselves.

It's no secret that Syfy channel is running low on good shows of their titular genre. Dark Matter takes a step toward rectifying that. A dark and gritty, yet colorful, action-filled but character-focused serial about seven strangers on a derelict spacecraft with no memory of their past lives. The diverse characters must work with each other to resolve the moral dilemmas around every corner, whenever they stop to replenish their dwindling supplies or explore their ship (whose name I won't spoil for plot reasons).
The tone of Battlestar Galactica meets the moral issues of Firefly meets an evolved Stargate. The acting is hit-or-miss, but when it's a hit, it's good. The constant plot twists will keep you guessing until the very last few seconds of the season.
As a huge fan of the show, I must say $45 is a bit steep, but watch on Netflix and see for yourself, and the price will likely decrease shortly after release anyway.
