Toronto Comicon 2015

  Sue and I love our conventions, just as much as we love film festivals, set visits, and chatting to new friends on our show, so we were delighted to learn that we’ll be covering Toronto’s first con of the season, Toronto Comicon!! As usual, Sue and I hope to bring our informal and relaxed…

Defiance S02E01 – The Opposite of Hallelujah

  Defiance is back tonight on Showcase, and if anyone was worried that wouldn’t be able to wrap you up again in the world and the story will find themselves sadly mistaken. Of course, we know how much I love this show! I watched the preview discs Showcase sent me of the first season (containing…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturday is undeniably the busiest day of the week at Expo, all those people who couldn’t get Thursday and Friday off work, and all those folks coming in on day passes flood in. The place was full, but for Sue and I, and the fact that the convention is spread over two buildings, it didn’t…

Defiance S01E12 – Everything Is Broken

  And just like that, season 1 of Defiance came roaring to a close. Shtako! It is now going to be an insanely long wait for Season 2. And it seems a lot of our favorite characters are in dire straits. Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) is no longer mayor, losing out, just barely to Datak…

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 S01E06 – Brothers In Arms

  Rockne O’Bannon penned the script for this week’s Defiance and I love how he opened up the world a little more and it seems that everyone in this town has a secret or two. I’ve been intrigued with the world of Defiance since its first episode, I’ve loved the writing, the characters and the…
