December 12, 2017: Is it spring yet?

Bundle up, kids!  It’s cold outside.  It’s I’m-not-going-out-unless-I-absolutely-have-to cold.  And it’s going to get even colder.  I mean, come on!  What happened to the promise of global warming?  Spring in winter?  Summer in autumn?  A world safe from runaway icebergs and douchey ski pros.  More of this – And less of this – Despite the […]

December 11, 2017: Dark Matter Secrets Revealed!

The highlights from #DarkGate Round 2, another Dark Matter/Stargate-related Q&A. On the mysterious Cyrus King… What of Solara Shockley? What episode idea did Episode 309, “Isn’t That A Paradox?” replace? As for what else we had in store for ONE/Derrick Moss… On Ryo, Misaki, and Teku…   And how would FOUR have adjusted to life […]

December 8, 2017: Thank you’s, t-shirts, and trailers!

And that’s a wrap on Project A 2017 writers’ room.  Over the course of the past five days, we broke the pilot, broad stroked the second episode, bulleted the first episode character arcs, fleshed out the backstory of our aliens, overviewed our five season plan, ate a hell of a lot of breakfast pastries and […]

December 5, 2017: Project A!

To be perfectly honest, I was looking forward to some time off.  Nothing crazy.  Maybe a month.  Or six.  While a lot of my fellow writers start going stir crazy after a few directionless weeks, I have no problem sleeping in, spending time with my girlfriend and the dogs, and reading into the wee hours. […]

December 4, 2017: Busy busy!

A reminder to join us this Wednesday, December 6th, at 10/9c for a Dark Matter/Stargate live tweet event in which I’ll be fielding questions and offering insights on my 15 combined years on all four sci-fi productions.  Tell your friends! Well, today was Day #1 of the writer’s room for one of the projects (let’s […]

December 3, 2017: Brush with the supernatural!

We’ve all experienced them at least once in our lives, those inexplicable, unnerving instances that make us wonder whether dark forces are at play, their subtle and sinister hands manipulating our reality from afar.  They leave an impression, an indelible mark at the deepest levels of your subconscious, buried away by overwhelming reason, the steadfast […]

December 2, 2017: Our one year anniversary with Suji!

Yep.  One year ago today we took in a special needs senior.  She came with her own wheelchair.  She mostly got around by pulling herself by her front legs, dragging her back legs behind her.  She was quiet, gentle, and kept to herself. A lot has changed in twelve months… Suji arrives in Toronto. Arriving home […]

December 1, 2017: Upcoming Genre Shows!

There’s a lot to genre programming to look forward to in 2018 (and the end of 2017).  Judge Dredd: Mega City One, Umbrella Academy, Myst – to name but a few.  And then there are the following intriguing candidates, much closer to a screen near you… Dark (Netflix) Premieres today Counterpart (STARZ) Premieres January 21st, […]

November 30, 2017: Wednesday, December 6th at 10/9c! It’s another Dark Matter tweetfest!

In what has become a weekly Wednesday tradition, here are my favorite comic book covers of this week’s newest releases: Batman: Creature of the Night #1 (cover art by John Paul Leon) At the heart of the Batman story is Bruce Wayne, an orphan forever driven by the deaths of his parents and this cover […]

November 28, 2017: My Snow Monkeys are playoff-bound!

I think we can all agree that, amidst all this talk about Hollywood and television production and the pitching of various projects, we often lose sight of what’s truly important: fantasy football.  Well, I’m pleased to report that following twelve hard-fought weeks in which I lost my #1 draft pick to season-ending injury, had to […]

November 27, 2017: Teaming up again with amazing Vanessa Piazza!

Over the course of my three years show running Dark Matter, I’ve given shout-outs to the various individuals whose talent and commitment to their craft made it all possible.  I’ve referenced the cast, the crew, and the post-production personnel who made coming to work every day such a delight.  Chiefest among them was Vanessa Piazza – […]

November 26, 2017: My cold weather dog!

Winter is almost upon us and, while it’s almost impossible to coax my french bulldog, Lulu, outdoors at the mere sight of snow, our senior pug, Suji, loves the frisky weather.  I don’t know what it is – maybe the fact that she was, literally, raised in a barn – but she seems impervious to […]

November 26, 2017: Happy Dark Matter Family Day!

Apparently, it’s Dark Matter Family Day on twitter, so I’d like to take this opportunity to say hello and thanks to our extended Dark Matter family – cast, crew, production personnel, and fans.  While others may conspire to keep us apart, it’s nice to see the familiar spirit that was the heart of the show […]

November 24, 2017: Following your lead!

One of the nice things about not being in production (thanks again, Syfy) is the free time I now have to read, hang with the dogs and, of course, catch up on movies.  There are a bunch of new releases I’m considering checking out, but I’m…unconvinced.  So, please convince me – one way or the […]

November 23, 2017: This ‘n That!

Quick, get in!  Next stop = Slumber Land! Hey, if you’re thinking of making our dogs new outfits, Akemi offers up the following doggy measurements.  I think she does a fairly good job of capturing Suji’s trademark wide-eyed wonder, and Lulu’s general furtiveness. Who feels like kaka for dinner?  Pardon me?  Happened across this sign […]
