  • Disappointed in the ending music

    2.5
    VERY disappointed in the choice of xtian music as the final song for the ending of the choice. There were many better choices> Why religious music? It is starting to resemble the xtian silliness that "Lost" descended into, effectively ruining it. Pushing personal beliefs like that makes the show begin to smell bad. I believe in religious freedom, but dislike having it used as a psychological imprint,,,out of place in this show. Have the writers forgotten that sci-fi fans are, as a rule, intelligent and free-minded? If the producers and creators of this show want a real lasting legacy take a clue from Straczynski.

  • Sci-Fi soap opera

    3.5
    Well they could have gone in lots of directions with the very exciting premise that is Defiances back story, but they decided to make east-enders in space. The greatest sci-fi disappointment ever, nothing ever happens. This show had so much potential and they choked when it came to realizing it. I have spent two seasons willing it to be better, to do something, anything. But the time has come to give up on this turkey.moreless

  • Too much to offer but very little make any sense.

    5.5
    Since the last season the only thing that has happened is the expansion of the cast otherwise the story still seems to be at square 1. The show establishes a good set up but none of the mysteries about the Votans, humans and other creatures are being covered. The only thing we see is a sort of "Civil War" between the different human-alien races. The casting is "okay" even though the "protagonists" Joshua Nolan(Bowler) and Amanda Rosewater(Julie Benz) seem dull, they are more than compensated by the "Chief Antagonists" the Tarrs esp Jaime Murray who plays Stahma Tarr is simply outstanding. She really makes you hate her. 2014 has been a dull year for TV esp after after some fine shows like "true Detective" and Game of thrones ended none of the shows have been able to fill in the void left by them. Defiance is one such descent "time pass" for that void. It may not be the best but certainly better than anything else offered on TV. The show however has the Potential, they need to move the story forward instead of simply coming up with "futile" and "insignificant" episodes which involve killing of characters which are not even remotely relevant in the show.moreless
  • DOUBLE D'S

    Syfy Renews Defiance for Season 3 and Dominion, Yes, Dominion, for Season 2

    It's good to be a one-word show whose name begins with the letter D on Syfy.

    Defiance Season 2 Finale Review: The Best and Worst of Both Worlds

    Defiance wrapped up its second season with a perfect encapsulation of its best and worst tendencies.

    • Episode Titles?
      Anyone notice the titles are all song titles, except of course 'pilot'? This an inside joke among the writers/director, etc?
