Syfy cancels Defiance

Dark Matter, Defiance season 3 to air tonight!

Dark Matter Tonight Syfy channel’s new TV series Dark Matter starring Roger Cross (Continuum, Orphan Black). Dark Matter is created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, and is based on the comic book of the same name. I am not familiar with the Dark Horse comic books and so I can’t recommend them, as for the series. It has not been widely announced. I first reported on it last year because Amanda Tapping would direct an episode. After her work on Continuum...

Defiance season 2 gang

Defiance Season 2 cast portraits

On June 19th Defiance will be back for it second season. As a teaser Syfy released no less than 25 high resolution character portraits to drool over. I found myself instantly awaiting the new season with renewed hope. Defiance has managed to build a small loyal fan base after its somewhat rocky first season. Some call it a miracle that it even got a second as Syfy Channel is notorious for cancelling fan favorites. Nonetheless the show from Farscape creator...

Defiance Season 2 Preview

Defiance Season 2 Preview

Defiance Season 2 Preview On June 22nd (or 19th) Defiance will be back for its second season. Last year Syfy touted the show as a new direction, a first taste of many new science fiction shows to come. However, Defiance only partially lived up to expectations. The pilot episode was a dud and so a were a few others but towards the end the show found more solid footing with its organized crime theme. Defiance tries to strongly focus on the...

Defiance - Stahma (Jaime Murray) - the poison is on the flask

Defiance season finale ‘Everything is Broken’ review

The first season finale of Defiance is entitled ‘Everything is Broken’ and that is a understatement. Plenty of characters are killed off and almost everybody’s world is turned over. Some people might hate the episode, but I think most will love it. It’s a show that has only slowly begun developing a pair of balls. The plot Nolan and Tommy continue their search for Irisa, who has disappeared. At the voting polls for the election Kenya suggests to Datak that Stahma has...

Defiance ‘The Bride Wore black’ Review!

The first season of Defiance is almost over. After yesterday’s episode ‘The Bride Wore Black’ there are just two more to go. Fans won’t have to be afraid of a cancellation as the second season has already been confirmed. The question is whether another season is warranted? Well, I say it is…. Slowly, yes just slowly… Defiance is managing to build itself up into a show with the right amount of intrigue, action and humor. ‘The Bride Wore black’ This episode deals...

Defiance gets renewed for second season by Syfy!

Defiance gets renewed for second season by Syfy!

After just 5 episodes into its first season Syfy has already given its news flagship show Defiance the benefit of the doubt. Syfy has renewed the show for another 13-episodes that will start airing in 2014. The announcement is surprising for several reasons. So far the quality has been uneven. A lot of viewers are confused about the background world. A situation that echoes what happened with Farscape 10 years back. Also the ratings have so far been steadily dropping over the course of...

Defiance ep4 ‘A Well Respected Man’ review!

Defiance ep4 ‘A Well Respected Man’ review!

A Well Respected Man is the fourth episode of Defiance (5 if you count the pilot as 2). So far the show has been mediocre at best and tedious as worst. Luckily this weeks episode turns that around. It is quick, brisk and has a lot of character development. It also manages to portray some events from the pilot, such as Luke’s death, as a bit more mysterious than what it might have been at first glance. I like this episode, I...
