I just finished Binge-watching both Seasons 1&2 and the first 3 episodes of S3 so that is what this review is based upon. I will start by saying OMG this show is Phenomenal. I had nothing to watch since GOT ended and I decided to watch this and thank God for that bc this show killed it in every area. I will start with the story it takes place on Earth in the year 2046 after multiple alien species landed years prior and centers upon Nolan and Irisa in the Town of Defiance. The story is simple but gets even better as time progresses. I will now talk about the cast which is in my opinion the best part. I will credit the 2 best actors in the show that being Nolan played by Grant Bowler and my favorite character Datak who is played by Tony Curran both are astounding actors. I will also say that all of the actors and actresses did an Amazing job of keeping the story engaging. I will now movie onto the action which I will say is sometimes a tad corny but the majority of the time it's Insanely Epic. I would recommend this show in a heart beat and S3 is so far the Best season yet. F.Y.I one of the main villains in S3 called General Rahm Tak who is played by Lee Tergesen is an absolutely mind blowing villain who is now probably just after 3 episodes my favorite villain of any television show to date. Go and Watch this show Now lolz.
This is the best season of Defiance yet. Don't listen to the negative reviews. New characters shake up the show in the best way possible. General Rahm Tak is the most ruthless villain this show has had. He adds a new level of darkness to the show. The Olmec provide a much needed subplot that makes the middle of the season more interesting. The fan favorites are back with there best performances yet. I even found myself liking characters I really did not like in season 2 such as Berlin and Alak If you've been a fan of the show or your a newcomer to it your going to love this season.
Slashed budget and abandoning most continuity built up over the first two seasons, this is very disappointing. After nine episodes that are overly dependent on convienence to move the story along, I will not be back if this does get renewed for a fourth season.
