Blasphemous Rumours
Bounty Hunters in Space...

Okay, I think with the epilogue to episode 8 Killjoys just stole my heart.

Dutch can't sleep. She pops over to John

John was reading a rare comic. He invites her to bed....

John offers Dutch a bedtime story, with velupian princess, imitated voices and everything...

Start a rumour here...

I know, right?

You're watching?

I am! And I'm being a dutiful pusher as well: I had a twitter flail when the first episode came out, which snagged Char, and then I got 3 or 4 others... and I just convinced another guy at the weekend. ALL SHALL WATCH AND DESPAIR. And by despair, I mean time travel to the 90s.

Just asking - because you do that thing, where you pimp shows onto unsuspecting people AND THEN THEY GET CANCELLED (the shows, not the people - though who knows...). I just want to be prepared. It probably would be more accurate to say 'by despair you mean the pain of a beloved show cruelly being torn from my arms'.

But I watch Sense8 and that got a second season! It may be the dawn of a bright new age where I don't kill everything you love!

They're just giving us a false sense of hope, and then, next year - bam, they pull the plug.

I only accept responsibility for shows cancelled before their second season, or within one season of me starting to watch them :P

Except Banshee maybe? Except technically that wasn't cancelled, so...

So adorkable. I'm such a sucker for friendship.

John is my favourite part of this show and their relationship is right up there. I find the show as a whole very uneven, but this episode felt like it had some traction in its "world building". Hopefully, the show will ramp it up as it heads into the season 1 finale over the next 2 weeks.

very uneven = FLAWLESS

... I will accept FLAWLESSLY UNEVEN :P

The character work is FLAWLESS!!!!

I'm hoping that it is a show that gets a surprising amount of attention from some dark corner of youtube that only uses the very "BEST" of 90's alternative music. It deserves a kickass fan art community as well.

I have a collection of deeply heartfelt alt rock and I'm not afraid to use it

I've given you a whole hour to work with... where is my vid?
11th-Aug-2015 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, where is it? ;)

If you find that dark corner of youtube, let me know!

The finale is so soon?

I have to say I really enjoy Killjoys - that's not to say it's particularly good, but it seems to hit all the right notes for me. John is such a dork, and Dutch kickes ass. And I have a soft spot for Luke McFarlan, and love me some man-pain, so I'm good on that front, too. Though I'm not blind to it's faults (I don't think) - I just pretend I don't notice... :)

Unfortunately, yes, they only shot 10 episodes for the first season. Just long enough to be a summer show.

In a perfect world they'd have the budget to improve the costuming and get some stronger directors/cinematographers working on the show, but truthfully, the only thing I meant by "uneven" is that their plotting is not on the same level (by far) as their character work (LOVING!).

..... the costuming part is something I'm surprised I care SO MUCH about, but I've become really picky about certain technical aspects of many of the shows that I watch. Otherwise, I'm embracing the early 90's feel of the show.

10 eps - just enough to get me hooked, but not enough to get a big fan-following. I'm not really ready for another Firefly experience.

Yeah, I don't think the show's got a big budget (which might go in it's favour when they decide on renewals?).

yes!! belatedly catching up after vvc but the tag was sooo cute!
14th-Aug-2015 07:43 am (UTC)
Soo cute, damn right!

I often get a bit squicky if it feels that shows are pandering to the fans (when referencing cosplay, conventions, comics etc), but John and Dutch and the comic felt totaly in character and believable.
