I know, I know, some big corporation isn’t going to listen to me anyway and no, I didn’t really expect them to, either. But you might have seen my post about why we need Dark Matter, here, and why Syfy absolutely should not cancel it. And yet, they did anyway, because, and from multiple sources, I’ve learned Dark Matter was an acquisition and Syfy was concerned about funding.
And yeah, I know. There’s lots to worry about nowadays, from white supremacist attacks and murders, fascism, bad presidents, oppression and all that, but this is part of why we need fiction as a way to escape, or to step away from all that. I mentioned this in my previous post about Dark Matter, but it still stands. Fiction (and music) is important to me, and also, in my own regard, especially science fiction. Space operas are already rare in an age of grimdark modern shows and fantasy.
