Dark Matter – Season 2 Episode 4

Dark Matter

“Episode 17 – We Were Family” Dark Matter this week builds heavily on the background plots of Three and The Android. It’s easy to forget that The Android also had her memory wiped in the first episode of season 1 and so also has a past to remember. Here though, it’s revealed that her emotional responses…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 13

Containment

“Path to Paradise” THE LAST EPISODE WE made it. We finally made it! There was a time I wasn’t sure there would ever be an end, with it seemingly dragging on for a bit, despite it’s relatively short 13 episode span, but here we are. Journeys, relationships; we’ve all had them. But none more than…

This is the second podcast so all feedback…
