    This is good news. I agree i am not a fan of the syfy reality shows they are filling the schedule with these days. Good to see at least Mondays nights is still syfy shows instead of all the ghost and paranormal shows the are doing now.

    I say the first part of defiance and really liked it thats why… Though I totally agree with the game.. I hope they don’t continue with that trend

    May have to consider watching this soon.

    I hate the writing quite a bit. The use of a Deus Ex Machina to solve almost any situation gets a tiring.

    The way they dropped the whole plotline of the second season in like 5 mins made me sick to my stomach.

    But I do like all the actors as a whole. Here’s hoping they get better writing next season, then they could do quite well.

    Great news!!!

    Happy face dance.

    SYFY channel still SUCKS in my book.
    The only reason why they renewed it was because it is the only scripted show they were actually producing themselves with the last Monday line-up.

    I bet Definace is going to be a huge FLOP !

    You’ll see on Tuesday.

    I bet it will be under 2 million !
