I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the premiere of the Syfy series, Defiance last Monday evening.
They say that the first 10 minutes of a film is crucial and the first ten of the 2 hour series opener, of Defiance, sure did what it was supposed to do. Now it’s Monday again and I have high exceptations of the 2nd episode.
Hopefully for the show it won’t lull, and keeps up the momentum. I will be watching and be back with more thoughts. However, if you’re watching too, don’t hesitate to chime in! I would love to learn what you think about the television program!
Defiance airs each Monday on the Syfy network at 9pm ET. The cast is led by Grant Bowler (fondly remembered from the ABC series, Ugly Betty) and Stephanie Leonidas. Their characters direct us through the experience of a new world developed as a result of a war which arose when a collective group of aliens, called Votans, came to earth several years prior. “After decades of war, a ceasefire is declared when both sides realise they must focus on survival on this new almost alien planet.” Presently we meet Grant Bowler’s character – Jeb Nolan – serving as Cheif Lawkeeper of the town of Defiance and working to protect its community from deviant humans, aliens, military scvangers and whoever else poses a threat to Defiance.
