On the last episode of SyFy’s great new show Defiance, Irisa’s friend and fellow Irathient Sukar was killed in a razor rain storm. Turns out, the piece of shrapnel that struck him was carrying tiny little nanobots that allowed him to raise from the dead. Believing himself on a mission from the god Irzu, he gathered tons of electrical equipment and then beaconed a ship down to Defiance. Believing he was trying to destroy the town Nolan fires several rounds into the intimidating Votan and kills him. Believing in Sukar’s cause, Irisa completes the mission and the ship crashes just outside of Defiance. This events gives us the setup for last night’s episode. Continue reading


After a week-long wait, new episodes of Defiance have once again started on SyFy. I hope you took the week to get caught up on the six episodes that have already aired. This is possibly the channel’s most ambitious endeavor with an amazingly detailed world, huge special effects, and an integrated MMORPG that affects and is affected by events in the show. We are glad it’s back. So was the wait worth it? Continue reading

Since the first episode of SyFy’s Defiance we knew there was something going on with a strange artifact that was found in the McCawley mines. We know that the town’s old mayor, Nicky Riordan, has an interest in finding it. And we know that it contains some unknown power. But it isn’t until last night’s episode, “Brothers in Arms”, that we have seen it used as the driving force behind any part of the plot. Even then, it was only used to drive a small subplot.

This is only the fifth episode of SyFy’s original show Defiance and it already feels like an old friend waiting to greet me every Monday night. The depth to which the show’s team developed the world and cultures that populate it is amazing. And while some of the special effects seem a little out of place, many of them are quite impressive. In the landscape of today’s science fiction television serials, this show is definitely standing on the top tier. While each show may have it’s own stand-alone story, throughout the series we are being given snippets of an underlying conspiracy plot. Not too much is revealed at once, just enough to pique our curiosities. So how much does “The Serpent’s Egg” reveal? Read on to find out. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

It’s Monday ladies and gentlemen and that means a new episode of SyFy’s Defiance. Thus far, the show has proven to be highly entertaining with a colorful cast of characters and highly detailed alien cultures. I would go so far as to say that this show over the past three weeks has been the best speculative fiction show among network and basic cable choices. It is has been nothing short of well written and well acted. Tonight’s episode, “A Well Respected Man”, is something we have been waiting for anxiously. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

04 Geek TVTonight, we are introduced to SyFy’s newest show, Weird or What, hosted by the famous William Shatner. The premise of the show is not new at all. If you have ever watched Mysteries, Magic, and Miracles or Unsolved Mysteries then you have seen this show. Therefore, the real challenge before SyFy and Mr. Shatner have before them is making this show stand out from its predecessors. And while we are happy to see William Shatner in something other than Priceline commercials again, we are not very hopeful as the first episode “Alien Encounters” is about as generic a subject as you can get. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

Defiance is gearing up to be a truly versatile show that can easily blend other genres into its science fiction base with entertaining results. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading

Last Monday, the SyFy Channel released their much anticipated new series Defiance. Geeking Cool was right there to review the pilot. Our review was fairly generous and other reviews have been fairly up and down. Some complained that the show was not at all what SyFy touted. Others slandered Nolan as a ripoff of Star Wars’ Hans Solo. We remain optimistic about the show though. Can Defiance convince everyone else? Can it keep us optimistic? SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT!
