SyFy has begun dipping its toes into the realm of hard science-fiction once again. Since Battlestar Galactica ended, only a few blips like Caprica have carried the torch of a once prominent television genre now overrun by vampires, zombies, and superheroes. Defiance looks to stake a claim on the airwaves for science-fiction once again. Set in a future frontier version of St. Louis renamed Defiance, it has all the trappings of a classic genre series, of which there have been too few in the past decade.
The first season of Defiance is out on DVD and Blu-ray on October 15, and we’ve got five Blu-ray copies of the complete first season to give away. Just send an email right here with your contact information including name, address, and phone number to enter to win one of the sets. Read a synopsis and watch a trailer below.
From the producers of Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, and Farscape comes Defiance, the critically—acclaimed action-packed tale of courage, and survival. It’s 2046 and over 30 years have passed since aliens arrived, changing life on Earth forever. In the frontier town of Defiance, a drifter-turned-lawkeeper (Grant Bowler, True Blood) and the newly-appointed mayor (Julie Benz, Dexter) attempt to lead the human and alien residents through the prejudices and politics that threaten the fragile peace they’ve fought for. Combining epic scope with the intrigue of a small-town drama, Defiance is science fiction at its best. Watch every riveting episode back to back and uninterrupted, with exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes and featurettes that go inside this incredible new world.
