 I expect the pilot of Defiance to be an effects laden spectacle.  Then the rest of the season will probably feature a lot of in the trenches storytelling with stock effects footage (reused from the pilot).  Of course, I expected that from Eureka and they pretty much delivered every week in the effects department, so I'll probably (hopefully) be proven wrong.  Either way, I'll be watching it.

Hey, if you make FOUR Wrong Turns, does that mean you eventually make the right one? I'll give Syfy credit for ambition - they're definitely thinking big with "Defiance." I'm not playing it right now, but I may get the game when it eventually drops to $20 but I credit them with thinking outside the box in how to release their product. Our way of consuming programming is changing and that's a creative way to reach viewers and consumers. Now will the show be any good? Who can say?

Oh and "Hannibal" is on Thursdays. If "The Following" (which seems to be saying law enforcent agencies are either bumbling idiots who only serve as serial killer cannon fodder OR corrupt and working with the bad guys) gets a mention, let's include the much more artistic and well produced procedural. The characters actually get to use their brains! (And Hannibal hasn't eaten any of them yet)

@ heath0920: two wrongs don't make a right... but three lefts do.

@ rob: Hey you forgot Saturday at 9 EDT BBC has Orphan Black. It's really a pretty good show. girl discovers she is one of several clones and someone is killing them off one at a time...

I think Defiance was so pre sold with game and action figures et al... that they have enough up front money and assets available to keep the effects up for a while.  They had to build backgrounds and character models for the game - many of which either came from the show or can be shifted back to the show.  EIther way a lot of the CG end of it is already there and paid for.

Of course none of this will be any good if the suckage factor is too high...
