Oh, thanks for making this post. I forgot Killjoys was returning this month. I saw one ad for it a couple of weeks ago, and then nothing, so it slipped from my mind.

Still a super fun show; I'm liking the flashback/ memory stuff.

Love the art direction, and it feels like they're still getting a ton of bang for not too much buck from their effects department. Kudos to their costuming staff, too!

I'm probably the only one who cares, but I am glad that they corrected the close captioning of the theme song to have the correct number of 'oohs'. The mismatch that was there before drove me crazy.

This was a fun episode, reminding us of the season 1 hijinks before everything started to get grim. I quite enjoyed it, and I'm usually sceptical of flashback episodes.

Stuff to notice: the Firefly reference, Aaron Ashmore's eyeliner (seven years previously, Johnny was just coming out of his teenage goth phase), the hot tango from every spy movie ever, and, of course, Pree's glitterbrows.

While it's consistent with the show... this kinda twigged me on that this might be an artificial implant - how to create a(n unwitting) villain. The likes of which we might have seen before.

The rest of it is extremely consistent, if a few bits (convincing ship to work with him) might be premature?

I knew the show was coming back, didn't remember when, and thankfully checked my guide on Friday. Phew! Close one!

I'm with Mogur, I definitely liked it, in part because it was a throwback to happier times on the show. It also made me think, if someone explained the gist of the show as of the season finale last year to me after I saw the first episode or so, this thing has REALLY gotten kind of whacky. Heh.

In terms of advancing the current plot...we really got zilch, so it was an interesting decision on how to start the season.

Ohhhhhh. "Dutch" is short for Duchess.

I make myself tired, sometimes...

I would never have guessed that's where they got "Dutch" from but I love it!

And thank goodness the first three episodes are now on Google Play. I don't know how long we'd have to wait for them to go up on Netflix Australia but it feels like forever! (And Seasons 2 and 3 seem to have disappeared? :O)
