Why is nobody watching this show?
I mean, it’s a mystery. You can’t blame that on it being a SyFy show. Battlestar Galactica was SyFy, and that was massive. But Defiance is a hugely original and innovative snow, not a remake, not derivative, but something new. It’s exactly what should have a mass audience. So why do I feel like I’m basically talking to myself with these reviews?
In a very real sense, we get the TV and film we deserve. If we aren’t prepared the back the innovative, we don’t really have a leg to stand on when we moan about the derivative. So if anyone wondered why I’m persisting with these reviews, there’s your answer. Because when I complain about all the sh*te, Defiance is the counter-example I point to.
