Killjoys - The Complete First Season

Set in a dystopian future, Killjoys follows the adventures of bounty hunting team Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and John (Aaron Ashmore) flying all over the quadrant on missions to bring in criminals. The pair's dynamic is changed when John's older brother D'Avin (Luke Macfarlane), a fellow soldier with plenty of baggage, joins the team.

Lasting only 10 episodes, the show's First Season offers a couple of ongoing storylines to supplement the job of the week. Along with the friction between brothers, D'Avin's past coming back to haunt him, and the growing unrest of the populace and a burgeoning rebellion, Dutch's past as a super-assassin is teased throughout the season by the return of her mentor Khlyen (Rob Stewart) who wants her back. Highlights include Dutch forced to hunt down a friend, John dealing with the sudden escalation of Dutch and D'Avin's relationship, and the team coming across a haunted spaceship.

All 10 episodes are collected on Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray also includes an Ultraviolet digital copy of the season, but no unfortunately no extras are included. Killjoys returns to Syfy for it's Second Season on July 1st.

[Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Blu-ray $44.98 / DVD $39.98]
