Finally got around to finishing season one of Killjoys
It’s old news at this point, but this show is great. What started out as a seemingly pedestrian attempt to capture the essence of Firefly in a mid-budget Canadian SyFy series turned into a well-written, well-plotted, action-packed political meditation populated by a great — and fairly diverse — cast. What I thought were just random bits of corporate-dystopian setting color slowly grew into, IMO, a well-woven fabric of intrigue, full of complex relationships and slick spacecraft.
Sure, it’s no Firefly, but what is? And, yeah, it’s obvious that a lot of the sets are just empty warehouses and Canadian fields, but I think the writing and performances suspend my disbelief enough not to really care. The fact is that this is solid adventure SF well-deserving of your time.
