With the interesting creature design, the attempt at making it look big and expansive, and the alien-language swear words... Yup, this is O'Bannon playing in the same sandbox as Farscape
Now, just get David Kemper on board and watch that coaster roll! Will he ever do TV again? Please...?
The 14 minutes didn't shake my world too much, but then not much does. The CGI didn't work in all places and I can't quite get past the fact that Grant Bowler (the lead male) looks uncannily like Richard Roxburgh from an Aussie TV show I'm currently delving into (Rake
- watch it!), yet still this show is clearly TRYING.
And I'll take a bit of ambition, failures and all, over the typically safe TV fair. Flawed as they were, the fact that BSG
threw caution to the wind and just went for it
helped hold my interest when they occasionally fell apart. Let's hope Defiance
does the same!
- Up for the season
