This post will probably be long and droning, but if you love Killjoys as much as I do, you might agree with some of the sentiments.
From the first episode it's pretty much laid out that Dutch is in charge, the Jacobis are just in for the ride. I love it. She's stronger because she's a little detatched, but from this season it's obvious she keeps the brothers around because they "feel so damn much". They're her emotional buffer, they keep her human. I love that the gender constructs have been flipped, and I also appreciate that they haven't relegated the boys to just support roles either. Everyone has a role to play, and they fill it beautifully. Who knew D'avin would be the one to be the anchor in the group?
The Fan Service
It was super amusing when Lucy got to have her way with Johnny. It was also super fulfilling to have Pawter tell off Jelco in a way only she could. Fancy getting a smug "you're a six not a ten" from D'avin. Khlyen and D'avin switching bodies. There are lots of tit for tats in this show, some of them you only notice if you've been there for the whole season. The emotional and personal dynamics are always at play. That makes certain one liners funnier and retribution that much sweeter when it happens.
I have no words for the season two finale. Everyone got what they wanted, they just took a path they didn't want to take to get there. I have to say Khlyen's demise this early in the story put me off, he's literally one of the best bad/good guys on tv in a while. Dutch's reaction to his death, along with Johnny's final FU to a major side character, shows how entangled everyone's emotions have become.
Oh my god. This show can be so cheesy sometimes. But I love it. I get into it. Who can really resist punk rock over some bounty hunter fighting or space flights?
This show has so many comebacks. I have to admit as soon as I'm about to say that was too much, or way too cheesy, like right before they lose me, they put in a quick line for me to know they know it's bad. A quick wink to the camera in verbal form. It makes me like it all the more.
Usually the fights are clever, sometimes badly choreographed, but they're never boring.
I had the arc for the season almost spot on, until that last Khlyen reveal. They keep you on your toes, and the one off episodes are still there to keep you amused.
Dark Matter VS Killjoys
This shit is crazy. It's the first time I've seen something like this happen with a SyFy show. There is a huge deal about Dark Matter and Killjoys. Usually a fan of one is not going to be a fan of the other, and boy, do they usually, and passionately, let you know.
For me, I really don't like Dark Matter that much. It's overplayed tropes and a storyline I couldn't care less about. I also have no attachment to any of the characters (keep in mind I've watched all of season one and part of season two, so I'm not just talking to talk here). They aren't even funny. I just don't get it. I get why other people may like it, but I just don't.
-The characters are boring
-The plot is mediocre
-There's hardly any humor
-They wanted a Firefly rip-off
See, I can do it too.
See you next season Killjoys
