I enjoyed the pilot episode of Dark Matter, but felt I’d seen it all before. The crew of six all alone on a spaceship had shades of Blake’s 7 about it. The dialogue and the amnesia plot has been mined in other sci- fi series. It was still enjoyable though, and good to have a new space- set sci- fi series. My only gripe was the darkness of the show ( not thematically, but actually). They’ve mastered interstellar travel onboard their high- tech ship, yet our lighting technology is way ahead of theirs. Marauder travellers, please locate a light switch while searching for your identities.
