Defiance
« on: October 22, 2015, 10:18:52 PM »

Have you seen the TV show Defiance? Originally on Syfy, but also viewable on Netflix now.

In short the show is about the future in which a radically transformed Earth, due to the arrival of the Votan races, some terraforming and war, becomes the canvas for the town of Deviance (formerly St. Louis).

I've seen two seasons out of three so far, and quite liked it. Did anyone else see it and if so, what did you think of it?

Can't say anything about the show as I watched a grand total of one episode. I don't think it is on Netflix either. I do know that it was canceled:

On the heels of canceling Dominion after two seasons, Syfy also has canceled its former companion, Defiance, after three seasons.

Defiance was a big financial investment and a content experiment for Syfy; it was developed in a partnership with Trion Worlds as a convergence of television and online gaming. After a solid ratings start, the show has been sliding, with its most recent third season averaging 1.1 million viewers in Live+same day, down 28% from Season 2. Still, Defiance qualified as Syfy’s most watched drama series this year, making its cancelation clearly a financial decision.

Wow, that's a bummer. I quite like that show. :( At least the good news for me is that I still have one season to see. As for its availability on netflix, it is here. So could be a geographical one.

Yeah, I meant to slip a 'here' in there. Syfy's selection on Netflix has some gaps.
