You haven't seen NuBSG?

Starbuck blew up.

Then She came back unscathed.

Then they found her corpse.
Beh, it was a typical NuBSG wuss-out since we knew the show was over.

Why are they showing 2 Defiance episodes back to back tonight?

I don't think that war between the angels show came on last week either. Maybe they are filling a hole in the schedule?

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

The Votan AI and is it’s ability to control and manipulate people like Irisa reminds me of the nanotech on NBC’s now-cancelled “Revolution”. Had Revolution been renewed for it’s third season, the nano would have been a large part of that show’s plot. And it looks like an AI that IMO, is a lot like the nano on Revolution is now playing a key part for the s2 finale of Defiance too.

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

Unless Dominion's Wikipedia page has been cleaned up by Syfy, it seems that season one was only meant to be 8 episodes long, and in retrospect, big things did happen in episode 8 that seemed climaxual and cliffhangery.

Dominion's concept and pilot was AWFUL... But once you accepted what was FUNDEMENTALLY wrong with it's prime movements, the whole Romeo and Juliet story played out with some entertainment value.

I'm wowed by Christie's embracing of Casti values. That was a cool scene with the enhanced sense of smell.

Still don't get the Quentin stuff. And I don't get why the VC was holding his mother? What? I thought she was in a psyche hospital?

Okay I guess an edited Spartacus could not go on early so many weeks in a row to fill the schedule hole.

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

Is your dvr smart enough to know that the (double) episode was two hours long if it was listed as a single episode where it looks these things up?

If it is that smart, set it on fire please before, y'know "Skynet".

So Datak thought Stahma was going to kill Treasure Doll. What does he do as soon as he finds out? Buys her services at the Need Want. At the time I thought this was his casti-sicko way of saying goodbye but now I'm wondering if he was trying to turn any suspicions away from Stahma onto himself?

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

One night in the oval office, as Kennedy was writing the trade embargo against Cuba into law, he reached into a desk draw for $2000, handed it to an intern, and told him to buy up as many Cuban Cigars in DC as possible before they were all confiscated by the police the following morning.

I love the look on his face as Stahma walks away. I think he is beginning to respect her like he never has before.

Treasure Doll is too stupid to be a cuban cigar.

Wait, was that a cuban cigar that Bill stuck up Monica's snatch during the not-sex?! Because that would be very funny, an up yours to Cuba HAHAHHAHA
