I just found out today that SyFy has cancelled Dark Matter after just three seasons.
I was thinking about making a long post pointing out how stupid I think it is that, here in the US, excellent TV shows get thrown in the trash because the whole thing is driven by ratings and advertising and, apparently, whim. Babylon 5, Firefly, you name it; amazing TV, shitcanned for the worst of reasons.
Babylon 5 got resurrected, and finished its intended five-season run, because of fans pushing back. So it can be done.
Dark Matter was also intended to go five seasons. Coincidence? I think not.
So if, like me, you’re a Dark Matter fan, tell SyFy you want them to reconsider the decision to cancel the show. There are several ways, but I’m just going to mention that there’s a feedback page at http://www.syfy.com/feedback, and you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t know if one is better than the other (probably not); I just sent email.
Do it, guys. Let’s make sure SyFy knows just how many people love this show and don’t want to see it ended ahead of its time.
