    • Why Doen't someone finish the series???

      I watched Defying Gravity when it first Aired on TV! I ended up subscribing to and Canadian online TV channel to finish the series. Since then I have bought the DVD and re-watched the series. it seems to me that this show is like Firefly suffered from a lack of advertising. Much like other Sci-fi production I think this would translate very well in to a TV movie or mini-series that could complete the story. Who could we reach out to ??? There has to be more support for this!moreless
    • One of the best shows never finished

      I watched Defying Gravity for the first time a few years back, after it had been canceled, and I was obsessed with it from the first ep to the last... I loved everything about it! Well almost everything... but what I didn't like was actually slowly adjusted in the series (to my amazement), like how Laura Harris' portrayal is adjusted in the flashbacks.

      It was like the series creators read my mind. Everything about this show had me spellbound! From the interpersonal relationships to the mystery of Pod 4. Simply put this series was a GEM!

      Like most really great things in this world it was seriously overlooked and as a result was canceled before it's time. Recently I stumbled onto cliqueclack dot com where detail of how the series would have gone had the Network brass had any brass and kept it going.

      How Defying Gravity would have progressed, straight from the creator: cliqueclack. com/tv/2009/10/29/how-defying-gravity-would-have-progressed-straight-from-the-creator

      This sounded amazing... I was really sad to not have had the opportunity to have seen this but series creator James Parriott was still a little optimistic on the final fate of the series at this point. Sadly that optimism would run out where DF was concerned and eventually he did pass on the full story.

      How Defying Gravity would have ended: the final chapter: cliqueclack .com/tv/2010/10/28/how-defying-gravity-would-have-ended-the-final-chapter

      What an ending that would have been... just an amazing series. Clearly, too good for television!moreless
    • Why????

      This show had great potential, Unknown outcomes intriguing expectations, This was like achieving a climax only to stop too soon. The science was solid, the characters were really getting there (their genetic outcome undiscovered), the potential for (How many of these (Orbs)) their influence, and impact not only on the Antares project but mankind.

      Some things are worth taking a loss on, How many people bought the first series, How many are waiting on the second. Will I buy from ABC/iTunes again ? ? ?

      This was entertainment, this stretched imagination, Si Fi is still a minority but still a viable market. Even breakeven and losing markets contribute to the overall success.

      Get a life

      Stick with building the credibility, and entertainment.

    • Best show

      For the past four years I waited in hopes that Defying Gravity would get a fear shake and be put back on air this show gave me a sense of aww and wonder,it force me to think about thing in a way I hadn't . In short I still would love to watch it even if it internet based . network I humbly long with other how wrote or have written your company, this show was taken off air to soon and didn't even get a chance to pull big number's . Defying Gravity had the recessionary tools to make it .Drama , mystery good arc .

      Thank you sincerely Maurice ) I gave 8.5 only because the show left me hang unanswered question's.moreless
    • So good It Sent me into depression when I found out there were no more. Join my facebook 'Get Defying Gravity Back On" site at bottom of this Post. When we get enough people, I will Petition to get the show back on.moreless

      I too late to even KNOWING the show existed, but it was not too late to get myself Hooked. It is really hard to explain my Disappointment in the Show going NO further... I have never felt this way about ANY show being Cancelled...I guess it was the Unique Nature of the Different Planets, the Mystery, and OHHH GOD!! The Technical Accuracy and time that was put into making a truly Believable Near future was not lost on this Individual. Truly felt like i was watching a real Soap Opera in Space.{Soap Opera in a GOOD} I will be Pursuing a Fan Club and I will devour any Spoilers to what Happened to the Crew...AND the Babe turning into a Man that...not so Good..But I would have watched it! PLEASE!! More " DEFYING GRAVITY " Like someone said in one of the many Pleas for more show said." I cannot wait for the BOOK to come out, and I hate to read" in reference to Possibilities of a BOOK. Whatever it takes, we need more. Thanks for the 13 WONDERFULLY Created Episodes...Im in for another Season if you are! ABC...take notice of the growing Anger for your Poor Marketing of a Show that I Guarantee will get a 5 share to start...and Better Rating as the Target Audience Now KNOWS about this great show.

      In Conclusion, Someone Dropped the is NOT too late to fix it. need Quality..this is it. Make this your Simpsons, and allow us to grow with these Awesomely Flawed Astronauts and their Mysterious and Limitless Plot/Story Line.

      Please OH Please Give the show another shot. If what I read is correct , there are many more People like me that Never knew it was ON! Poor Management of a Jewel of a show. Superb!

      I have recently created a Get Defying gravity Back on Facebook page. It is my Hope that I can get enough of you like the page and get a Petition to get our show back on.
