Re: Anyone watch Dark Matter?

It's about a town full of geniuses developing all kinds of technologies. Almost like a scifi soap opera. It gets funnier towards the end of the series too.

Back in 2009 I was watching this show alongside Warehouse 13 but never finished either after moving house in 2011. Both shows were still airing new episodes until Eureka finished up in 2012 and Warehouse 13 in 2014.

For more comprehensive summaries quoted from
The short
The best minds in the US are tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the government's benefit.

The long
With the help of Albert Einstein and other trusted advisors, President Harry S. Truman commissioned a top-secret residential development in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest, one that would serve to protect and nurture America's most valuable intellectual resources. There our nation's greatest thinkers, the über-geniuses working on the next era of scientific achievement, would be able to live and work in a supportive environment. The best architects and planners were commissioned to design a welcoming place for these superlative geniuses to reside, an area that would offer the best education for their children, the best healthcare, the best amenities and quality of life. A community was created to rival the most idyllic of America's small towns - with one major difference: this town would never appear on any maps. At least, none that haven't been classified "eyes only" by the Pentagon.

Would I watch it again, not really but neither would I watch most scifi I've seen again except the absolute best :mrgreen:
