  • ‘Defying Gravity’ review – Sepinwall on TV
    “Stop me if you’ve heard this one before — and if you’ve been watching ABC for the last few years, you have — but ABC’s Defying Gravity is about a group of young professionals being trained in a dangerous specialty with a high wash-out rate, where the main character has an infirm parent and frames each episode with metaphor-laden narration, and where the male lead (an authority figure) and the female lead (one of his students) have a drunken one-night stand the day they meet. Yes, Defying Gravity is more or less Grey’s Anatomy in space (or, as my friend Dan Fienberg has dubbed it, Grey’s Astronomy), with a splash of Lost and a cast of familiar faces from recent ABC dramas.
