I tried but lost interest a half hour in.

So did I.

 

Cliche after cliche after cliche ...

 

One would rather rewatch Mad Max, Babylon 5, Stargate..you name it.

Watched the 2nd episode and haven't changed my mind about it at all.  Excellent!

For my own pleasure, I hope to see some type of map of New Earth.

Sigh. What happened to the programming at Syfy. Gone are fun shows Eureka and Warehouse 13. Now Defiance is getting more and more brutal. And fewer characters with the slightest bit of likability. 

 

Time to dump this one from my series list. 

 

Peace,

Tom

Well, RIP, Syfy. iPhone and iPad generation is not interested in this genre anymore. Just appreciate the  glorious past.

Seems like fun distopian science fiction isn't dead, Marvel comics movies are doing well--which cover the whole gamut of serious drama to fun and light, ala Guardians of the Galaxy. Syfy apparently had some success with a few more dramatic shows and went all in. Syfy is becoming DarkFy... Sigh.

 

Peace,

Tom

Sigh...Warehouse 13...

 

This was a favorite of mine, but some eps got a little stupider than the norm in the last seasons. Then they killed off whatshername and gave the other girl cancer, and I had to stop watching it.

 

Allison Scagliotti has a new show, Stitchers, well-deserved; I thought she was the actual heart of WH13, and is as talented as they come. Very young, too, still only 24. I first saw her portray a gender-confused patient on the under-appreciated Mental in 2009 (must have been 18 or 19 at the time) and she nailed a very tough role pretty convincingly. She has a great energy and enthusiasm.

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

I wish they spend a little bit more money and time on alien makeup. Just purple makeup and color eye is in one word  - cheap.
