What happens to me if I fail your test?  
++ Dark Matter is a new series that will be premiering on Syfy soon, and it's based off of comic books of the same name. I hadn't heard about this until recently, but from reading about the main plot along with watching the trailer, I'm intrigued already. The casting looks great (diversity yay, and Wil Wheaton also has a role in this as well) and I'm all in for more scifi thrillers and mysteries. I'm still sad about Helix, but if this series is good and does well then it can fill that particular void.

++ There's also going to be a new show on ABC Family called Stitchers. I have no idea what it's about, the previews themselves are incredibly vague to the actual plot, but all I know is that Allison Scagliotti is in it, and therefore I will be watching. ♥

++ I've been hearing a lot of good things about Ex Machina, an independent science fiction film that is about examining humanity with the creation of artificial intelligence. I'm pretty much all about anything involving A.I. and them becoming sentient beings, and by that I mean I get really emotional about it. Pretty much anything that has machines becoming individuals of their own and fighting for their independence from being enslaved or abused by humanity, I'm here for. I haven't gone any deeper than reading general non-spoiler reviews about it, but I'm intrigued since it's basically taking the similar concept as seen with these kinds of plots and themes and kind of doing something different with it. So I'm very curious to see how well this is executed and whether it lives up to the recommendations and praise.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of things about Ex Machina? The whole idea of AI is a really interesting one, since we're likely coming up on the point where it's a very real possibility in the near future.

Ohhh, I heard that she landed a role in Stichers, but then it sort of vanished off the news. Not that I know anything about the show, either.

I mean, it's already happening. Just thinking about the technological advancements that has been happening over the last several years in creating machines that can react to us and even think for itself...that near future is becoming much closer than we think. It's both fascinating and scary, because we know what will happen based on what science fiction has taught us.

And honestly, I like seeing different variations of these stories being told. Machines uprising after being mistreated by humans is a common theme, but it's something we must take heed on because, with how we're advancing in technology at such a rapid rate now, anything is possible.

I honestly hadn't heart anything about Stitchers until those previews, and seeing Allison in one of them definitely spiked my interest tenfold. It says that she's also a main player, so we'll see.
