I caught up with the first episode of SyFy's new SF TV show Defiance last night and overall was very impressed. Set on a terraformed Earth, thirty years after an alien invasion it was an interesting mish-mash of post-apocalyptic Western and classic SF series. For anyone who enjoyed the film or TV seris Alien Nation, the influence of Rockne S. O'Bannon can be clearly seen, especially the use of alien languages.
