Dark Matter Review | An Existential Sci-Fi Show with Universal Human Themes

The concept of a multiverse and alternate realities has been around for quite some time, but it’s certainly become more culturally popular than ever before. That’s largely because of the Marvel, DC, and other franchises that have incorporated the idea into their narratives, embracing the notion but largely discarding the quantum mechanics of it all. Dark Matter is the latest sci-fi series on Apple TV+ (and from Wayward Pines‘ Blake Crouch), and goes in the other direction, grounding itself in the superposition principle to explore alternate worlds. Fortunately, you don’t need to be familiar with Fourier and Schrdinger to enjoy Dark Matter, which never lets its hard sci-fi ideas obfuscate the characters’ emotional realities.
