Defiance S01E11 – Past is Prologue

  Wow. Just wow. This week’s ep of Defiance seemed to pull out all the stops, as the mayoral race heats up and we find out how devious the Tarr household actually is! Datak (Tony Curran) is intent on running against Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) and isn’t afraid of using deceit and misinformation to do…

Defiance S01E10 – The Bride Wore Black

  Big events are afoot this week in the town of Defiance, and more secrets are uncovered, at least for the viewer, if not the residents! The impending nuptials of Alak Tarr (Jesse Rath) and Christie McCawley (Nicole Munoz) lead the local Castithan males to have a stag part for Alak at the Need/Want… it…

Defiance S01E09 – If I Ever Leave This World Alive

  It never rains, but it pours. Those poor folk in Defiance can’t seem to catch a break! At the end of last week’s ep we saw a reporter stumble into Doc Yewll’s (Trenna Keating) lab, and promptly collapse with blood spilling from her mouth and eyes – and you know that’s never good! It…

Defiance S01E08 – I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times

  Defiance, as a series, started out great for me, and it has constantly engaged me every time I’ve watched an episode, but this week’s episode felt above and beyond… I think we have my favorite episode, after the pilot. And it seemed the Votans, particularly the Indogenes were up to some pretty horrific stuff…

Defiance S01E07 – Goodbye Blue Sky

  Lots of trouble rolling through Defiance this week as Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) gets wrapped up in a bit of an adventure all while the land is besieged by razor rain (pieces of Votan ships coming down and slicing things up – messy). Irisa races into the Badlands after she has a vision of Sukar…

Defiance S01E04 – A Well Respected Man

  I am loving this show, and I now know why Showcase didn’t send me the entire series in one go… because I would have watched them all in one sitting, and then a couple of days later, done it again and again. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows, I love the…

Defiance S01E03 – The Devil In The Dark

  Tonight on Showcase the town of Defiance has a new problem to deal with… Hell Bugs. I love this episode’s intro, as the first victim changes from his everyday shoes, to a pair of ADIDAS that he’s traded for and has kept in near mint condition, you know he cleans them after every run……

Defiance S01E02 – Down In The Ground Where The Dead Men Go

  Things getting increasingly shtako (hope I’m using that right) for the folks of the town of Defiance tonight. SPOILERS!!!! Nolan (Grant Bowler) settling into his role of lawkeeper with Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) as his second, is encountering problems already. One of the Castithans who ran during the battle with the Volge is taken to…

Defiance S01 – Pilot

  I came in cold to this series, though Showcase was kind enough to send me a screener of the series opener, and within minutes I was wowed by the show, if I had known that Rockne S. O’Bannon of Farscape fame had developed it for television, it probably would have taken less time. The…
