If you like “Defiance”, then you might enjoy…

Defiance-TV.jpg

Defiance is a splendid form of entertainment. And if you love it as much as I do, then you will love some of the following TV-shows, Movies and Animes.

The year is 2046 and over 30 years have passed since aliens arrived. They drastically altered earth by terraforming it and colonizing it. In the frontier town of Defiance the different alien species and humans are living side by side. This off course is not without tension between the different spices, which makes for a lot of small, and not so small, problems to overcome.

TV

Falling-Skies-TV.jpg

Falling Skies opens in the aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people while engaging in a campaign against the occupying alien force, whose purpose remains a mystery. – Amazon

V-TV.jpg

Aliens have come among us, and they appears to want peace and to share their knowledge. After the uncertainty in the beginning they become a fascination. People have started to work for them and promote them. Agent Erica Evans, working in the counter terrorist division in FBI, discovers what hidden beneath the human exterior of the aliens.

V was a fantastic show that I truly miss. I wish it had lasted longer.

Dominion-TV.jpg

Dominion is set 25 years after “The Extinction War”. That was when an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged war against mankind. In this war the archangel Michael turned against his own kind and chose to side with humanity. He lives now as a guardian in the fortified city of Vega where he help humanity to survive against Gabriel and his minions.

Dominion is a very good show set in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by angles.

The-100-TV.jpg

100 young convicts from a dying space station are sent back to earth 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse to see if it’s habitable. In 97 years the world has been dramatically altered by the nuclear fallout. Are the humans from the space station truly the only survivors, as they believe, or are they wrong?

I like this series, I hope very much that this series do not meet an early demise like Terra Nova did.

Terra-Nova-TV.jpg

The year is 2149 and the planet is dying. In and global attempt to find a solution they find a strange way to kind of sol it. They have managed to open a portal 85 million years back into the time of the dinosaurs. We follow one family, the Shannons, as they manage to join the selected few who are sent back to join the Terra Nova Colony.

Some people disliked this show, but I loved it. I was quit sad when it got cancelled.

Firefly-TV.jpg

Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds, a former galactic war veteran, is the captain of the transport ship Serenity. He is kind of like Han Solo from Star Wars, a small time smuggler hiding behind his legal transport services. His crew consists of Zoe, his old war buddy and Wash, the pilot and Jayne Cobb, the muscle and Kaylee Frye, the mechanic and Simon Tam, the medic and River, Simon`s sister and Inara Serra, a courtesan and Shepherd Book, a preacher.Together they do any jobs, legal or illegal.They travels across the outskirts of outer space sparking up trouble wherever they go.

This is a superb show. I can’t fathom why it got cancelled after only one season. I want a new show like this.

Defiance are placed on a teraformed earth, but it has some similar feel to it.

Eureka-TV.jpg

Eureka is a small hidden town populated by Americas brightest scientists. They work cutting edge inventions and discoveries. Sadly for them, but funny for us, in their enthusiasm they tend to be forgetful about the safety surrounding their projects, which usually leads unnatural and hilarious chaos!

Sheriff Jack Carter and his daughter accidentally stumbles upon Eureka, and Jack ends up being hired as the new sheriff in town. He got more than he bargained for when he has to deal with all the quirky geniuses living in Eureka and their crazy experiments.

This is an absolutely hilarious show. Every episode have some new crazy accident to be taken care of. I was so sad when it was cancelled.

Continuum-TV.jpg

Kiera Cameron, a detective from the year 2077, finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver and searching for ruthless criminals from the future called Liber8. Kiera poses as a government agent and joins forces with police detective Carlos Fonnegra and teen genius Alec Sadler to capture the terrorists before they can alter the future. The future of 2077 is a dystopian one in which world governments have collapsed and corporations now dominate the planet.

I like it. I have not watched the last season of Continuum jet, but it is on my soon to watch list.

Dark-Matter-TV-2015.jpg

A spaceship out in the farthest reaches of space is on its way to a remote mining colony. Inside it has a crew of six people who has had their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The ship has a cargo bay full of weapons and the mining colony is about to become a war zone.

It looks like this show has a low-budget, but it is still a great show. I like it.

Killjoys-TV-2015.jpg

A trio of bounty hunters lives in a solar system ruled by a tyrannical class based corporation known as the company. They live hard, party all night, and they work for an Independent interplanetary organization of assassins and retrieval experts called R.A.C. People working for R.A.C. is known as Killjoys. Killjoys only follows one law and that is “The Warrant is all”.

Killjoys dos not have the biggest budget, but it still manages to be a very cool show.

Under-the-Dome-TV.jpg

Under the Dome is based on Stephen Kings best-selling novel. It is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The towns inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.

Under the Dome is not as addicting as other TV shows, but it`s still a good show.

Almost-Human-TV.jpg

In year 2048 every cop is teamed up with a synthetic android partner. The dysfunctional Detective John Kennex, who hate Androids, are forced to team up with an old second-hand android named Dorian.

I loved Almost Human. It`s so irritating that so many good shows are canceled way before their time.

Movie

War-of-the-Worlds-Movie-2005.jpg

We follow one family as Earth is invaded by alien tripod fighting robots.

This is an OK movie. You should watch it if you like science fiction, otherwise it is not that good… Unless you for some strange reason love Tom Cruse.

Anime

Cowboy-Bebop-Anime-1998.jpg

Spike Spiegel is a bounty hunter. Together with his partners Jet Black, Faye Valentine , Edward and their dog Ein they hunt across the galaxy looking for any high bounty fugitives to bag.

This is one of the classic must see animes. Cowboy Bebop is recommended even if you are not a big fan of animes.

Outlaw-Star-Anime-1998.jpg

Gene Starwind and his partner Jim Hawking run a small business on the planet Centinel 3. They claim that they can do any job. One day they are hired by a woman to be her bodyguard. Unknown to them, she is a outlaw in disguise, which is kind of awkward because Gene makes money on the side by bounty hunting. They are unwillingly trusted into a mystery where they have to deal with intergalactic cops, pirates, aliens and assassins. Luckily for them, they have the galaxy’s most advanced ship on their side.

Outlaw Star ranges from light-hearted humour to dark philosophical questioning. Gene Starwind kind of reminds me of Starlord, which is a very good thing. If you are into animes then you should definitely give this one a try.

Do you agree? Anything else you think should be on this list?
