  • Defiance is being too clever?

    Firstly I must make it clear I really want Defiance to become a success! However this second episode left me wanting at best; Indifferent at worst. I appreciated the background setups for starting to understand the alien histories and cultures, but is it too clever too early? None Scifi viewers might struggle with these story lines being developed too quickly. The basic story line with Ben I struggled with. It just seemed weak. Perhaps a different line rather than Ben being resurrected would have worked better for me. The one thing the story did do well is leave open as to what Mayor Nicky agenda really is. The visuals seemed much better this week. The characters, the sets ticked the boxes. Particularly the white room scene.

    Miles to go...
