Buried in the black murk of space, a stowed-away crew suddenly awakens from stasis aboard the castaway space ship known as the Raza. With no memory of their pasts or why they are onboard in the first place, this rag-tag crew has no choice but to roam the frontiers of the galaxy searching for answers. On their voyage they encounter rebel space armies, a zombiefied ship crew, derelict androids, and intergalactic bounty hunters, all attempting to pull the team further from the truth.

I'm a little late to the party but I have really enjoyed watching Season 1 and Season 2 of Dark Matter. I can't wait for Season 3 to be released. A real shame that there won't be a season 4 since it got canceled. I liked the Total Recall vibe where the characters behave differently depending on their memories (or the lack thereof). If you liked Stargate Universe or the Expanse (and I liked them both) you should check out Dark Matter. The ensemble cast is pretty good, I especially like the unique take on the character of the Android.

Seven crewmembers of the starship Raza are awakened from stasis to find their memories have been erased.

If you like hard sci-fi you will probably like Dark Matter. Season 1 has twists & turns, unexpected reveals, and it showed that it could come up with new sci-fi ideas & take risks. The production may look a little budgeted (and some of the fight scenes a little stilted), but for me it was easy to look past this when I got into what DMS1 does with its story & ideas.

Well...it started slowly for me. It was difficult to feel any empathy for the plight of the "crew" but I kept at it and watched the character development evolve. Now I'm gonna catch season two.

I gave a stab at this Sci-Fi series but decided it didn't warrant my attention. I heard the subsequent seasons are better. But Season One didn't get my attention.

Good ensemble cast, each member with his and her own strong, dramatic backstory.
Plenty of action, special effects and humour, but even better, each episode has an exciting and suspenseful story. Thoroughly entertaining.

Some plot inconsistencies, but I'm splitting hairs. And speaking of which, Dark Matter is a hair-raising sci-fi series, more of a space opera, with an interesting cast of broadly drawn characters, lots of surprises, and it kept my interest. Not deep, but fun. I especially enjoyed the addition of a 15 year-old computer expert on board, oh and (completing my "hair theme"), she sports blue hair!!

A surprisingly good series with many twists and turns in the plot that will make you wonder what's next. There are some similarities to other sci fi series but that does not detract from the plotline.

Well its fun and fast and shiny.And I do see a lot of try in every aspect of the show,and I do expect better things from everyone involved in the future, It's not very deep, its more like a roller-coaster ride that you want to go on, but if you look very close your afraid it will fall apart, but if you just enjoy it for what it is it is a great binge watch for a weekend and a lot of fun.

With the strong positive comments about the series I was particularly disappointed by the writing. For example, a person with a memory lose including name and past history remembering perfectly the instructions about how to run a large spaceship's internal environment in time to save the group is to suspend belief too far. Early in the first disc I decided that there were more worthwhile series to watch .
