Synopsis: In ‘Wish I’d Spaced You When I Had The Chance’. The crew races against time to track down and locate Three and Five before the Galactic Authority get to them first.

Review: Aside from sounding like a god awful country song. ‘Wish I’d Spaced You When I Had The Chance’ is both a great episode for action and character beats.

The story starts with the crew of the Raza on a shopping trip to pick up supplies, but in a very short space of time everything that could go wrong does.

First off the crew is spotted and the Authorities are onto them. And if that isn’t bad enough Five is captured by the science fiction equivalent of that Red Neck family from the movie ‘Deliverance’, which means that Three has to mount a one man rescue effort.

All seems well for a short time, but then Three gets himself shot while attempting to get five out from the grasp of the Syfy Hillbillies. As they make their escape from the cabin in the woods. Five and Three have to evade the authorities who are hot on their heels.

DARK MATTER — “Wish I’d Spaced You When I Had the Chance”

There are some great performances in this story. Particularly between Anthony Lemke and Jodelle Ferland. The scene in which Three tries to push Five away by telling her she is useless and saying he’s sorry he didn’t space her is really strong. Both performers give their all in that moment and Ferland’s tears really sell it to you.

Making a noted return in this episode is Galactic Authority Inspector Kieren as played by Kris Holden-Ried. Karen is fast becoming a fascinating character in his own right and with very little screen time as well.

Other notable happenings include Six trying to talk Two into using the Blimp drive to their advantage and becoming a for hire police force. While Four goes to the Android to ask her to upload his memories.

All in all. This is a huge improvement on last week’s episode.
