Each episode of Killjoys builds upon the past, layering and layering themes repeated throughout the season. The finale of Killjoys was no different. “Escape Velocity” finally answered some of our lingering questions about Khlyen and Red 17, in ways foreshadowed by previous episodes. Yet, we are still left wanting. We need more episodes to learn about the Killjoys universe – not just to uncover one more mystery about Dutch’s past – but also because we care about what is going to happen to all of the characters. Killjoys has done a fantastic job of fleshing out the characters’ relationships with one another, and revealing the motivations behind their actions. So this post will focus on the growth of our characters, the ABC building blocks of the entire Killjoys series. (Caution – Spoilers Ahead!) (more…)

In this episode of Killjoys, the team goes on a rip-roaring ride through Utopia – a mecca of extreme tech, drugs, and sex set adrift in space. Dutch gets a new haircut, a new outfit, and a new love interest. But how long can utopia really last? Especially when the team meets the real Dr. Pim Jaeger? (Caution – Spoilers Ahead!)  (more…)

Killjoys S1E4 Review: The Vessel

S1E3 The Harvest || S1E4 The Vessel || S1E5 A Glitch in the System

The fourth installment of Killjoys is all about politics, politics, and land. In this episode, we see how the nine noble houses of Qresh use dirty tactics to vie for Qreshi soil. This inter-family conflict amongst the Qreshi households is set against the mounting tensions of a potential Quad class war, hinted strongly at throughout the episode.

I’m a huge fan of Frank Herbert’s Dune, and the political intrigue that underlie its plot. The shifting power struggles in Killjoys “The Vessel” pay strong homage to Dune. If Killjoys is reading from the same playbook as Dune – this little foray into class politics will ultimately explode into a crazy intergenerational and interstellar war. (Caution – Spoilers Ahead!)
