Episodes like this always remind me of the Batman Animated Series where Batman is trapped in a dream machine, specifically when hes tipped off its a dream because he can't read anything and kills himself to wake himself up ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perch...nimated_Series)

Android is going to realize something is up though when shes not charged up completely during her cycle and tries to track down the possible errors as to why that is.

Mary Worth had an illicit affair with Refurb and kidnapped Sophie when she learned the truth. Little did Sophie know, but she was held in Apartment 3G under the watchful eye of The Phantom until Dick Tracy rescued her. Meanwhile, in spite of everything, Working Daze still sucked.


Wow, this episode was just painfully obvious. And it's such a cliché plot, too. Maybe once it was clever, but now whenever it happens it's just a wasted episode. It's so overdone that even the multiple fake-outs aren't convincing. And in this case we didn't even have any reason to care about whether the bad guys got the information they're after, because it wouldn't directly affect any of the main characters. The only thing we got out of it was that Six apparently had a family, but he decided not to contact them anyway, so what's the point?

That's my assumption, but it could just as easily be some as-yet unknown entity that they'll end up fighting in a couple of episodes.

I assumed that was what was happening with the computer screen and pill bottle, but the option they went with was just as dumb. If he looked at the screen expecting to see certain information there, shouldn't his subconscious have just filled it in? That "we didn't set the detail level high enough" excuse doesn't really make sense if all the information is coming from his brain anyway.

He doesn't have a huge medical background so if his brain just filled it with random information it would still be a red flag to him, especially if it wasn't even medical looking text. If I'm playing devils advocate here perhaps the process they are using to probe his mind requires parts of his brain to be less active to work well, sort of letting them focus on a certain part of the mind/memories and that they are suppressing the other parts at the risk of the mind noticing the missing areas and in this case they had dulled it too much in their focus that it came at the cost of fine details?

Anyway, Roger Cross is an awesome dude who came to Tacoma's tiny Comic show this last October, he is super hilarious in person, and also he looks like twenty years younger than on the show. He also almost stole my girlfriend (not really but if he did she woulda gone). Well that's my Dark Matter story, thanks for listening.

12 Monkeys characters flipped around like hypocritical pancakes every season, then suddenly everyone is jumping back and forth in time like it's islands on a map and not a different point in time.

Show got real dumb real fast, even though I watched up until the last 3 episodes.

Couldn't take it anymore, and way better shows had new seasons coming back.

This.

This show and Killjoys are great. Killjoys has stayed on topic pretty well, Pree is the loving poo poo, the banter is good, and it's really fun.

Dark Matter has incredible music, great casting, cool and fun ideas, but little payoff, and Ryo is a loving drag. He's just a big loving baby throwing space tantrums. I hope the doubles kill him off so I don't have to watch him whine every time someone gives him advice he both asked for, and doesn't want.

One was the worst character, obviously, but Four wasn't far behind and turning into Ryo has not helped. But hey, at least we found out who Space Japan is actually at war with last episode. Although it kind of seems a bit like one EU nation going to war with another and all the rest just sitting it out, which would be weird.

Holy poo poo, Ryo really is a space baby. His entire plot is "what if some kid had a gi Joe and it was really cool and you wanted it real bad. but he wouldn't give it to you? That's not fair right? How come he gets it but I don't? That's why you should join me and beat up the Raza kids to take their toys."

I totally forgot about One I think the same part of why I started to like this show. I figured he was the main protagonist since he was the first to wake up, then when he was killed off, I felt like the show was going to be kind of Game of Thrones-y in that any character could potentially get wiped from the slate at any time.

I really liked when Ryo was Four. He was the cool headed, stoic one that could bring some wisdom and insight to the craziness of the rest of them.

I'm still convinced the whole crew are robots with the human implant Android has. it would explain how the ship knocked them out simultaneously, Two's nanites, Fives presence on the ship, and all their memory loss.

Turns out, everyone's robots. The Raza crew, Space Japan, the corporations, everyone. The whole thing is just robots who forgot they were robots (and some robots who remember that they're robots, and also other robots who remember that they're robots but don't want to be robots).

Just as an aside, but Zoie Palmer really deserves major props for all the subtle little changes in emotion she manages with the Android's base personality. It's a very hard thing to pull of going from generally calm and endearing to quietly malevolent when you have to keep calm and composed at the same time.
