More SyFy Cheese: Killjoys Trailer

SyFy has released a trailer from its upcoming science fiction bounty hunter series named Killjoys.

What confuses me is that the trailer says “Space bounty hunters . . . keeping the peace.”  Okay, as far as I know bounty hunters have no interest in keeping peace or following rules.  They’re interested in the bounty and will break laws themselves to bring in a bounty, thus disturbing any sense of peace.  So are these “killjoys” space bounty hunters or space cops or is SyFy’s tagline deparment a bit confused?  Don’t answer that, it was rhetorical.

Killjoys premiers June 19, 2015 on SyFy @ 9/8c.

From the producers of Orphan Black (Temple Street Productions) and the creator of Lost Girl (Michelle Lovretta), Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multiplanetary class war.

Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch. A top-level Killjoy, she’s a much loved and charming presence in her community, with a unique gift for earning people’s trust and respect regardless of their class. Under her banter and protective flirtations, there is a dark secret past.

Aaron Ashmore takes on the role of John Jaqobis, a peacemaker who hates conflict. Cheerful and kind-hearted, John prefers not to fight, but his sarcastic wit has put him into the fray enough over the years to teach him how to do it well, and dirty.

Luke Macfarlane stars as D’avin, a handsome, rugged, sarcastic, and incredibly loyal former soldier. He dreamed of enlisting in the military since boyhood, and his hard-won expertise in tactics, maneuvers and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team.

SyFy, dumbing down science fiction since 1992.
