Dark Matter Season 1 Review – Firefly meets Battlestar Galactica?

At times Dark Matter looks ludicrously cheap. Colonies on alien worlds seem more like a city centre warehouse with a brown post-production filter, while an apparently advanced spaceship looks suspiciously like an industrial interior from modern day. Another plotline takes place in the middle of a forest on another colony world, except it looks identical to your average forest. You could probably get together with some friends and...

TV Review: Sense8 Season 1

So this is deliberately a fairly spoiler-free review without too much detail and only vague references to specific events.
