killjoyssmallI’m so excited about the Killjoys premiere on Syfy tonight – probably the most excited I’ve been about a new Syfy show in a while. Starring Aaron Ashmore (who was great on Warehouse 13, Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror), and Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters), the show follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war. John Jaqobis (Ashmore), Dutch (John-Kamen), & D’avin (Macfarlane) like to play hard and work hard, so I’m hoping that makes for a very entertaining show! If we’re lucky, we’ll get some of the same vibes of “team” and “family” and “fun” that we got from Warehouse 13.

On tonight’s episode, “Bangarang,” Dutch and John are racing against time and a competing Killjoy in an attempt to clear their names and save D’avin’s life.

See if Dutch and John are able to accomplish what they set out to do tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Whose Line Is It Anyway? & American Diner Revival.

defiance619smallLast week, Defiance returned for its third season, and it was a really bad night to be a McCawley! As Rafe, Datak, and Stahma tried to track down their kidnapped children, they crossed paths with the ruthless Castithan general, Rahm Tak. The Tarrs pretended that Rafe was their prisoner, and when the group arrived at Pilar’s hideout, Christie’s brother Quentin was quickly slaughtered by the general. Rafe tried to protect his daughter, but he was also riddled with bullets. The general then asked Stahma to take a blade to Christie’s throat as a test of her loyalty. Christie gave Stahma the okay as long as she would protect her baby – and so a third McCawley was dead. After the men cleared out, Alak and Pilar took baby Luke and headed off to find a safe place to hide out.

Meanwhile, back at Defiance, the town was low on resources now that the mines had been shut down, and they didn’t have enough power to keep the security gates up. Two purple-skinned Omec – a powerful race that was thought to be extinct – entered the town while the defenses were down. Amanda wounded the younger of the two during a skirmish and locked her up. The Omec’s father, T’evgin, offered that in exchange for some Indogene tissue (provided by Doc Yewll) to heal his daughter, he would use their technology to mine the gulanite and split the yield. What Amanda and the others don’t know is that the Omec have hundreds of soldiers in stasis aboard their ship, waiting to be unfrozen to conquer and devour the planet.

It looks like it’s going to be a really exciting new season, with two scary new threats for the town. I’m interested to see how the Tarr and Defiance storylines come together and who poses a bigger threat for Defiance: the general or the Omec. I look forward to the rest of the season, but it will be a little odd without any McCawleys around!

On tonight’s episode, “The Broken Bough,” Amanda negotiates with the Omec, a new alien race, for the future of Defiance; and the Tarrs return to find much changed and their loyalties tested between the humans, the Omec, and the Votanis Collective. Meanwhile, Nolan and Irisa encounter a survivor of Votanis Collective atrocities that can aid their first strike against Gen. Rahm Tak’s oncoming army.

To meet the survivor of the Votanis Collective, tune in to Syfy at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Killjoys, Dark Matter, and Childrens Hospital.
