Whether it’s intentional or coincidental, fans of the dearly departed Defiance will get a little treat on the first Syfy Friday of 2016. Many of those fans, myself among them, loved the triple threat of Defiance, Killjoys, and Dark Matter. One of the best three-hour blocks of scifi programming to ever air on TV, the return of only two of these three is bittersweet. But the creators of the two survivors, Michelle Lovretta (Killjoys) and Joseph Mallozzi (Dark Matter) are caring people. They’re sending Defiance fans a love letter in their premieres this Friday, July 1.
Killjoys brings us dreams of Irisa when Stephanie Leonidas guests in the season two opener. Following suit, Dark Matter offers echoes of Doc Yewll with a guest turn by Trenna Keating. I can’t give you any details on their roles, but you won’t have to wait long to find out. The premieres are just days away. Suffice it to say I’m pretty confident you’ll feel their former characters’ presences this Friday night.
Yeah, I know. It’s not the same as having Defiance join the two for a marathon of futuristic fun, but it helps ease the loss a little. This is especially true as it’s the premiere night for our beloved Syfy Friday. As fans, we’ve reserved a table for three, but ended up with a party of two. Still, it’s heartening to know our remaining guests have offered a toast to their fallen comrade and a lovely gift to fans.
I’ll raise a glass to that.
-Remember: This Friday, July 1 is the premiere of Killjoys (9/8c) and Dark Matter (10/9c). Be there to live tweet with us at the @ThreeIfBySpace account. I may occasionally and accidentally (or not) tweet from my personal account (@Thogar), too.-
