The Best of 2015: Dark Matter and Gilligan's Island

Wednesday, December 23, 2015 - 7:00am

Have you noticed that there are seven main characters on Dark Matter … and seven main characters on Gilligan's Island?

Heck, even their premises are kind of the same: Dark Matter is about a group of amnesiac criminal misfits forced to co-exist as they scrape together a living in outer space and Gilligan's Island is about a group of tourists forced to co-exist after they're stranded on some uncharted land mass.

Okay, the premises have little to nothing in common, but that whole seven characters thing can't be a coincidence. Watch as the crew of the Raza becomes the crew of the SS Minnow as each Dark Matter character is matched with their respective Gilligan's Island character.

Oh, and while you're at it, why not come up with a Dark Matter theme song and share it on Twitter, Vine and all the rest?

All through the month we're counting down the best of 2015. Take a look at the complete list if you are so inclined.
