And yeah, it did have a Farscape vibe to it. Didn't know it was done by the same guy.
It isn't really. Rockne S. O'Bannon tends to get all the credit for Farscape, but it was really more its executive producers David Kemper and Richard Manning who made it the exceptional show it was. As for Defiance, O'Bannon was one of three co-developers along with Kevin Murphy and Michael Taylor, but after the pilot, O'Bannon left to create and produce the CW's flop Cult. Yes, O'Bannon co-wrote the pilot, but from here on out it's Murphy and Taylor's show.
Fine. Give credit to whoever you please. It's still rehashed Farscape, which is only useful if you were a fan of Farscape. I wasn't.
