...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.
That's a good point. Too many shows these days are so fixated on having big story arcs and mysteries that it can distract from the story potential inherent in their basic premises.
I am SO sick of big government conspiracy stories. I completely agree with you Kegg, I would love to see this more about the relationships between the alien species, all struggling to survive.
I don't mind the conspiracy stories but it seems that a lot of people want to emulate the mystery part of Lost and not the character part. Most of the characters in Defiance aren't that interesting. I'm going to give it until the end of the season.

I'd have to disagree with some though, I prefer Falling Skies to this.

And teacake if they got rid of Julie Benz I would definitely stop watching
