Defiance TV Show to Premiere in April
I’m one of those people that just gets sucked into a good science-fiction TV drama. Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, Stargate SG-1, and Eureka are all among my favorites shows on television. That’s why I have hope that the Defiance TV show will be good. While the game has proven MMO developers Trion at the helm to ensure that it is fun, the TV show shouldn’t be ignored. A talented science-fiction writer (Rockne S. O’Bannon of Farscape fame) and a network that believes in the show (Syfy) means that there is some pretty heavy drive to make the TV show great. There’s also the whole interconnection between the game and show to really drive the storytelling of both.
For those curious to see if Syfy manages to hit the proverbial jackpot, set your alarm for 9pm on April 15th. That’s when Syfy is putting on what it no doubt hopes to be the next Battlestar Galactica of its line-up. At least the result will be interesting regardless of whether it crashes or flies.
