TV show review: CONTINUUM season 4

DEFIANCE Season 3 premiere

TV show review by David Blackwell




Premieres 8/ 7 pm CT, June 12th on SyFy

Nolan (Grant Bowler) and Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) are rescued out of status about seven months after the events of the season 2 finale.  Their saviors are the mysterious Omec (who are almost extinct and hated by the other alien races including Doc Yewell who insists on having the Omec killed).  Meanwhile, Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) tries to hold together the town of Defiance which is under imminent threat from General Rahm Tak who wants to wipe the place off the face of the Earth. Datak Tarr and Stahma Tarr have allied themselves with Rafe McCawley as they all search for Alak Tarr, his son, and Rafe’s daughter. 


Season 3 turns events on their head again as the mysterious Omec are definitely up to no good even though they seem friendly enough while Datak and Stahma want nothing to do with Rahm Tak.  The end of the first episode ends drastically while the end of episode 2 is the sign of trouble to come.   Irisa is made into a hero (as a legend has grown about her during the months she and Nolan were missing) she isn’t as she still feels guilty for the things she did last season (where she didn’t have control of everything she did).   I can’t wait to see where this season goes as alliances form and more danger is on the way.  I just wonder if the romance between Nolan and Amanda will pick up again.  It is nice to see the season 2 finale had effects on the world in general.  Season 3 is another game changer while also bringing back some of the status quo like bringing Nolan and Irisa back to Defiance once again (even though they have been trapped nearby for months).


I do think fans will like season 3 of DEFIANCE if they were a fan of the first two seasons.  The first two episodes are basically set up for the new season while resolving the threads left behind from season 2.   I hope people catch it on Friday nights or via On Demand because SyFy Friday is back with a vengeance.   I hope they don’t take the entire season to deal with Rahm Tak looking to destroy Defiance as another bigger threat is hinted at in the first two episodes.
