From Todd VanDerWerff at the AV Club:
- Defying Gravity – “Pilot”/”Natural Selection”
“There’s a pretty good, quite interesting show buried somewhere within Defying Gravity, whose two first episodes debut tonight, but the producers, chief among them James Parriott, haven’t managed to find it.” Read more.
From W. Andrew Powell of The Gate:
- Ã¢â‚¬ËœDefying Gravity’ a sudsy space drama
“Defying Gravity has an added gotcha in the sense that the series takes place in both the past and the present, looking at how the astronauts first got involved in the mission and where it leads them.” Read more.
From Rachel Thomas of About.com:
- An Interview with Christina Cox (Jen, Defying Gravity)
“It’s about what happens when you take 8 people and you isolate them from their families and their entire existence as they know it and send them off for 6 years on a journey that they have to complete. What does that do to their psyche, what does it do to their soul? It brings up the questions of fate and destiny.” Read more.
From Cameron Archer of URBMN:
- Defying Gravity 1.1
“Defying Gravity (CTV/’A’/ABC, two-hour premiere August 2, 9:00 PM ET/PT; in regular timeslot starting August 9, 10:00 PM ET/PT on CTV/ABC; premieres August 7, 8:00 PM ET on SPACE) is an anomaly in the world of prime-time Canadian content. The creator of the show, James D. Parriott, has run or co-run shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Sons of Anarchy and Ugly Betty. He created Misfits of Science, Voyagers! and Forever Knight, so his sci-fi credentials are solid.” Read more.
