'Defiance' videos: Detailed language learning, a sneak peek at next week

Check out these videos from Syfy for new science fiction drama "Defiance," which premiered Monday (April 15), chronicling the lives of humans and aliens co-habitating on post-apocalyptic Earth."I've never worked on anything with the same level of detail," says star Grant Bowler. "The alien languages, which I certainly had no experience with an entirely created language. And you, of course, to be generous to me, have me speaking all the alien languages."Below, here's a sneak peek scene at next week's episode, titled "Down in the Ground Where the Dead Men Go." In the clip, Rafe and Nolan head into the mines with an expedition, looking for someone who has stolen some gulanite, which is a valuable mineral from the gas planet Gula.

'Defiance' premiere: 'Battlestar Galactica' or 'Firefly' fans are in for a treat

"Defiance" premiered Monday (April 15) on Syfy -- is it the latest must-watch science fiction show to hit the airwaves?We think fans of "Battlestar Galactica" are in for a treat. While not set in space, "Defiance," like "BSG," pits humans in a post-apocalyptic world working with, and against, alien creatures who have taken over their planet. In addition, "Defiance" also has an added mystery element. Wherein "BSG," viewers were left wondering who was a Cylon and who was not, "Defiance" introduced shady former mayor, Nicky Riordan (Fionnula Flanagan), and the mysterious Mr. Birch, who are working with someone to try to wipe Defiance off the map. Working with them are the toaster-like Volges, a Votan race hostile towards other Votans and humans alike.(For the record, we're guessing the Earth Republic is somehow involved, since it came up several times that Mayor Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) does not want to trade with them.)We also love the... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/defiance-premiere-battlestar-galactica-or-firefly-fans-are-in-for-a-treat.html

Syfy's 'Defiance' travels between media worlds with TV series and online game

The word "transmedia" has been floating around for the past few years, even as the people who are using it are still trying to figure out what it means. On Monday, April 15, Syfy premieres a project that may help nail down that definition.Launching simultaneously as both a scripted Syfy TV series -- with a two-hour premiere episode -- and a Trion Worlds online game, "Defiance" tells a story that takes place in one fictional universe but on two fronts and in two locations."From the original handshake deal," executive producer Kevin Murphy tells Zap2it, "to do something between Trion Worlds and Syfy, it's been five years in the borning."Developed by Murphy, Rockne S. O'Bannon and Michael Taylor, "Defiance" takes place on a near-future Earth, where aliens collectively called the Votans came after their own star system was destroyed.Initially allowed to settle in a colony in Brazil, the Votans became desperate and impatient with negotiations among... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/syfys-defiance-travels-between-media-worlds-with-tv-series-and-online-game.html
