Re: The Defiance Thread - News about the Show and Game

This is true. This is the weakest episode the show's had and it's really not able to write the whole religion/science debate that well (this is something Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica both handled more coherently), and that the show seems to feel Lost-style conspiracy stories are a more valuable arc than stories about the relationships between aliens feels like a mistake. Defiance has a great premise and a good idea for an ensemble but it's not handling this all that well.

And Guy, as far as 'fantasy' goes, the French series The Returned is getting rave reviews and premiering on UK TV on Channel 4 this Saturday.
