Defying Gravity. This was a stupendous TV series that was on just before Christmas last year. Unfortunately it was axed before it had even finished, partly thanks to ABC’s shoddy advertising and promotion of the series. The BBC thankfully decided to show the rest of the series but in the graveyard slot at 2am on Sunday evening. Defying Gravity saw a group of astronauts on a 6 year trip around the Solar System with a covered up mysterious mission!
It’s such a shame that this series didn’t get the recognition it deserved. The storyline had been planned out superbly, after the pilot I was already asking ‘what the hell is really going on here?’ There wasn’t a dull episode in the mix. When you finally get told what Beta is, it is an astonishing turn, I wanted more. The finale was up there in the top 5 of my all time favourite finales! Then, there was no more, I still had questions to ask.
Thankfully, James Parriott told us how it would have panned out on an online blog. The ending would have been great had they let it carry on.
Anyway, the DVD for the series arrived yesterday! Yay! It’s only available on Region 1 though. Thankfully we’ve got a multi-region DVD player!
If you want to find out more have a look at this teaser trailer! It was a great series! :)
