    I liked it too, but mainly in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Depends on if they want to keep it light or get more gritty with the characters. It is better than Dark Matter, but that's not saying much.

    I think the show it's just that: a guilty pleusure. I suspect it will become later in the season a little more serious but not much. But at least it has better acting, decent dialogues and is better directed. So we should enjoy it for what it is without many expectations.

    Can we have a sub forum for this? btw i don't understand why Dark Matter got its sub forum while 12 monkeys and this didn't.

    Probably because of its Stargate connection.

    I really liked the first episode of this show, it was fun and I like the characters so far. I'm looking forward to the next ep.

    Episode 1 ratings

    0.966 mil. viewers
    0.26 adult rating

    Well i didn't expect more. Perhaps since this is primarely a space channel production the canadian ratings will also matter but i'm not optimistic. It was a bad friday for syfy.
    With bad ratings for Defiance, Dark Matter and Killjoys i wonder what syfy will do. Will they renew any of these?

    I liked that a lot. Definitely far more enjoyable than Dark Matter.

    It feels a lot more 'real' and 'alive' than Dark Matter and I like the main characters from the get go.

    Btw, have you noticed the ship's funny quips?

    The bar for imports is always lower as SyFy has to pay less compared to US shows

    I will be watching because Hannah John-Kamen is hot. I personally prefer Dark Matter over this.

    An apart from the cool corridor scene everything else was pretty poor and CGI is even below Dark matter here, Elite Dangerous has better looking planets and ships than this tv show does, truly terrible.

    I suspect all three shows will be renewed, why because Syfy need something to rebuild their audience with and the current management knows it not going to do that by scrapping shows after their first season.

    Probably because Joe Mallozzi and the people that run this site are acquaintances. An Dark Matter treated this site like it did other bigger site by providing preview of the first few episodes.

    Sad that this and Dark matter are already struggling in the ratings, i have wanted space shows to return for ages.

    The best written female character on trek ever.

    It does have worse CGI because Killjoys is clearly far more interested in characters than space combat. And I'm fine with that. I still mostly enjoy Babylon 5 and Farscape, and those had pretty terrible CGI, particularly for the first seasons.

    On the other hand, Dark Matter has CGI among the best (comparable to SGU and BSG), but it's still kinda bland. After two episodes, I still don't really care for the characters.

    Maybe they'll renew Killjoys and Dark Matter, but I don't think Defiance will get a fourth season.

    Babylon 5 and Farscape had awesome CGI for their time. No show have even come close to beating the amount of CGI use on Babylon 5. Babylon 5 is 20 years old so poor CGI is acceptable. Poor CGI in a show launch in 2015 isn't.

    I like the humour in this, it's dark.

    What I meant is that I don't necessarily have to think about how old those shows are in order to justify the quality of the CGI and enjoy the shows (Babylon 5 is actually close to 30 years old now, isn't it?).
    I would still enjoy Farscape if it came out this year with what CGI it had back then. (Babylon 5's CGI would feel quite jarring for a current production today, though. But thankfully, Killjoys isn't that bad.)

    People will allways argue about the cgi of a movie or tv show. I think it depends on expectations but also on what can be considered "good cgi" for a show. The cgi which is good for one show perhaps it's not for another. And in the end it's the story that matters most.

    February 22, 1993. That makes it 22 years, and a few months now.
