‘Defiance’ defies audience, viewing

Last night I wasted an hour of my life watching an episode of SyFy’s ‘Defiance.’ Don’t repeat my mistake. Here’s everything you need to know about the show: imagine the B-team of writers from ‘Law & Order: SVU’ was assigned to ripoff ‘Deadwood,’ but IN THE FUTURE! That’s ‘Defiance’: shallow stereotypes masquerading as characters with a “plot” that consists of one dramatic stand-off after the next. You know a show doesn’t respect its audience when it consists entirely (every scene!) of cliffhangers. The only good thing about this show is the cut of Gale Hammond’s suit, which somehow makes sleezy-politician-cum-jazz-player look elvish.
