Defiance is a new science fiction series that is airing on Showcase, and it debuted on April 15, 2013. It marks the very first series that I will be watching exclusively online, and as such I know that the Showcase website is the place for us Canadians to see it. The thing is, there are tons of videos to explore for Defiance, including lots of behind the scenes, sneak peeks and more which I love to watch after watching a a series. When I'm watching for the first time I like to get completely absorbed by it and not yet break into how they did stuff. So, I decided to make a spoiler-free link list for just the episode, for any others who also like to watch in this way.
New to Defiance? Here is a series description: "Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story."
Defiance is a Canadian/US co-production of 13 episodes and stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene and Mia Kirshner.
