Where every night is karaoke night
UK Broadcast Syfy, finished US Broadcast Syfy, finished Episodes Reviewed 2.01-2.10
The Royale, Old Town Westerly. Bar owner Pree, John Barrowman’s brother from another mother, is MCing at a karaoke night. Killjoys Dutch, D’avin and Johnny are in the crowd. Everyone else in the bar is a Six. What’s a Six? Depending on when in the season we are: a) dunno; b) some sort of greenplasma-bloodied supersoldier; c) everyone in the entire show except Pree, the Killjoys and assorted cannon fodder.
PREE In the spirit of “If you can’t beat them join them”, we’ve decided to stop trying to battle against the pop songs on the show’s soundtrack and just sing the bloody scripts instead.
D’AVIN Dutch, you should do “Papa Don’t Preach” cos your dad, Khlyen, is orchestrating the whole arc plot this season.
DUTCH But I wanted to do “I Will Survive”.
JOHNNY Hey, D’avin. Remember that scene when you shagged Sabine and she was a secret Six and the plasma in your body made her bleed green goo?
D’AVIN Yep, I’ve had better dates.
JOHNNY Maybe you could do Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name”.
PREE I had “It’s Not Easy Being Green” cued up for that one.
D’AVIN Johnny, you should do “Automatic Lover” because of the way you get all fast-pulsey every time the AI on our ship speaks.
JOHNNY Hey! I’m dating Doctor Pawter. I was gonna sing “Dr Beat”.
PREE Don’t forget the Company has set up this wall around Old Town that makes us all docile drones.
ALL KILLJOYS IN UNISON All in all it’s just “Another Brick In The Wall”.
DUTCH What about when Jelco kidnapped Pawter to make her operate on his dicky ticker and she planted a bomb in his chest instead?
JOHNNY Right! “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”! Sweet!
D’AVIN We’ve gotta do Nirvana’s “HeartShaped Box”.
D’AVIN Cos there was an episode called that this season. It’s the one where I stripped to my pants and sat in a fish tank with Sabine.
JOHNNY Ah! We have to “Live Forever”! Cos that’s what the Sixes can do, unless we thrust a big pointy stick in their brains.
DUTCH “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”?
D’AVIN That’s just sick…
DUTCH Let’s face it, the best bits of this show are the sickest. Dave Golder
