Dark Matter — not to be confused with SyFy’s Dark Matter — is a super fun sci-fi novel that’s wholly accessible to a non-sci-fi reader. It could make a really great series. I’m hopeful for this new show.

No, I'm imagine that ship has long sailed. The actors are all on different things now. But, we can dream...

I really enjoyed this book. I like Crouch's stuff (it's fairly breezy but it's engaging). I also liked Recursion (which, if you liked Dark Matter, you'll probably also like).

I enjoyed Recursion, but felt Dark Matter was a much stronger book. Though I could see Recursion being a great show, with video adaptation improving the aspects I felt were lacking.

I'm excited to see the exploding plotline adapted to TV. The way it starts slow, laying the groundwork, and then working out every logical consequence of the concept, has so much promise.

Man, what a let down opening this thread was!

Like Walter, I immediately thought this was news that SyFy’s Dark Matter was being revived by Apple. Oof. Maybe that clarification should be in the title?

I also liked Recursion but have not read Dark Matter.
