    Paraphrasing:
    D'Avin: You know it wasn't me right?
    Dutch: But it was me. I can't be ok with that.

    Basically they were finding during the episode they may be similarly damaged, bad people. But they find in the end that D'Avin isn't really like that. He's merely a puppet not having a choice when his programming kicks in. Dutch finds she did have a choice in whatever she did. (I guess it's up to debate as to how much choice she really had and how much her blaming herself is deserved. And we'll definitely see more on that.)

    Otherwise the episode, while not bad, was a bit lacking in suspension of disbelief. Several things felt like lucky coincidences.
    On the other hand, Lucy is still a great character. Dr. Pawter's mysteries will hopefully be more explored in the future.

    Let's all take a moment to appreaciate that there wasn't an overcoming mind-control by love cliché. And good to see Amanda again too, pity she didn't have much to do.

    That's where Killjoys is pretty strong, I'd say. Just when you think it's gonna fall in some cliche, it takes a different direction.

    Hmm, I was waiting for someone else to comment on the latest episode "Come the Rain", but well... gotta be a double post by me then.

    Once more, Killjoys managed to avoid some clichés an once more we got to see a couple of the 'suppporting' cast (Bellus and the revolutionary priest).

    We finally uncovered all we wanted to know about Pawter. And the coming revolution got more concrete, with spies among the company ranks (and massing of weapons).

    Only jarring bit would be the storm pulling Lucy in. But you can at least try and hand waive it: It was a 'weirdo electro-magnetic storm' and Lucy may have actually been parked in the atmosphere and not in orbit (Dutch commands her to park right above the storm before John's programming takes over).

    That's one reason for me to continue watching it. The other is the good worldbuilding. Killjoys proved that you can do a decent space show (not great but decent) on a low budget if you have some creativity and imagination.

    It is. But in the last two episodes it got a liitle more serious. And it does seem to have a content. Not something exceptional but a content none the less. While Dark matter has nothing.

    I'm finding that's the real strength of killjoys, the three leads have good interaction and there is time left to develop the secondary characters, making good use of the interesting world building. Certain sci fi shows with a big ensemble cast lack in that departement. I remember being surprised when Pawter was taken to prison. Really happy it turns out she's not some goody two shoes.

    hope this gets a second season, any word on that?

    Yup, I can't think of any character that would stand out (in the bad sense). They have good chemistry together, including the likes of Pree, Bellus, Alvis, the higher up RAC representatives we've seen etc.

    When it comes to another season, I believe I've seen a report of Killjoys being pretty popular for the Space channel (Canada). For Syfy, it's a little lower ranking than both Defiance and Dark Matter. So, fingers crossed it survives. But frankly I'm very worried.

    Next week is the season finale. I wish this show was getting 13 episodes instead of Dark Matter.

    Hell yes. I'm so hooked up. There are so many questions that keep appearing. So much more to discover.

    This 9th episode just kept amazing me. The Quad is already a fairly vast and interesting place to be, but we keep getting more and more hints of what's beyond. If this isn't renewed, it's just such a huge lost opportunity...

    This episode proved for one more time that what makes a show good is simply good writing not the budget. Allthough the space scenes are also better than Dark Matter's.

    The Quad is actually a believable place. And there are actual people struggling in their daily lives.

    Killjoys is great at immersion. Along with the momentum the episodes typically gain, it makes me not notice or quickly forgive the mistakes it does (because yes, Killjoys is far from perfect).

    Of course it's not perfect.Far from it. But it has decent writing and acting and an interesting and entetaining story.
    And i really liked this futuristic plasma computer. It's been along time since i show something really futuristic.

    You may have a point. One of the consequences of having stereotypical unimaginative sci-fi lately is that it's all a rehash of technologies and abilities that were deemed sci-fi dozens of years ago. And what's sci-fi about micro-computers, cloning etc. at the current day?

    While I'm sure Killjoys isn't the first with this kind of 'plasma computer', it still sounds like a relatively fresh idea and not something I expect tomorrow in the Apple store.


    And since I spoke of mistakes, doesn't Dutch's injured leg switch from right to left when she reaches John and D'Avin?

    Not as far as I can tell from a quick second look. Left the whole time.

    How come there's no smiley for fingers crossed? Because that's definitely my current state of mind.
