Dark Matter - Season 1



  • Dark Matter is a live-action, science-fiction, horror space show that aired on the Sy-Fy network. It reminds me a lot of Firefly in a way. Now, Funimation is releasing this on Bluray soon, and I am curious as to why. It isn't anime right? Is this the case where they are simply distributing it? I know that they have released live-action stuff before, but I didn't know they had connections to American TV. It looks like it might be cool, and I am a fan of science-fiction. What do you all think of this release?

    Summary:
    "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."

    Dark Matter will be release on 6/14/2016. Preorder at the Funimation Shop:

  • I did watch this one. I am somewhat netrual on it. Has good points, and bad points.

    The reason it is on FUNimation is because of "Giant Ape Productions". The company that owns FUNimation (Group 1200 Media) owns the other; as well as some other randoms.

    For whatever reason, Group 1200 like bankrupting themselves by buying up a bunch of random and completely unrelated IP and hardware. And we are subsidizing such, nevertheless…

    Would you say it's worth checking out?

    Ah, very interesting. That is pretty weird. haha, I never would have guessed such a thing.

    IDK if you have cable service/ON Demand, Hulu, or otherwise, but just wait until its free. They are supposedly, maybe gonna release a second season (in fall I think). It is absoulutely not worth buying/paying money for, in either case; and the show ends open-ended, as it were.

    Okay, yeah, I'll just wait till it eventually comes out Hulu or Netflix. Thanks for saving me the hassle.



  • Well, there is a tiny possibility it will be added to the FUNimation streaming service, but we shall see nevertheless…
