Happy Monday and welcome to the Underrated Treasures Blogfest, put on by Ninja Captain Alex!
I couldn’t resist jumping in on this blogfest because it’s all about sharing lesser known awesome TV shows, books, movies, bands or all of the above. I picked TV Show because there’s one that comes to mind quickly. I’m a science fiction and fantasy lover, so I get pretty excited when I stumble on a newer and well done TV show, movie or book in those genres. It could be more popular than I realize, but nobody I’ve mentioned it to seems to know about it.
This is a newer SyFy show. I find it very entertaining. The creators have done a great job blending a fascinating mix of human and alien characters who clash and less frequently get along in Defiance, which is located where St. Louis once stood.
Here’s the summary from IMDB:
In the year 2046, it’s a new Earth – with new rules. Over thirty years after various alien races arrived on Earth, the landscape is completely altered, terraformed nearly beyond recognition. To the town of Defiance, on what used to be St. Louis, comes the mysterious Nolan (Grant Bowler) and his charge, Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas). As they settle into town – overseen by the mayor, Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) and filled with residents like the powerful Rafe McCawley (Graham Greene), enterprising lounge owner Kenya (Mia Kirshner) and the ambitious, alien Tarrs (Tony Curran and Jaime Murray) – events begin to unfold that threaten the fragile peace this border town has fought for.
If you’re looking for a new show to check out, Defiance may be just for you. My only caution (and hang up with it) is that it is a bit promiscuous for my liking. But the rest of it is good enough, I can handle that.
