It would appear that this past Sunday’s episode of Defying Gravity, episode #8, will be the last one we’ll get to see. Episode #9 is scheduled to air in Canada (and oh, how I miss getting Canadian TV stations) but none of the rest seem to be on anyone’s schedule.
Yes, it’s Grey’s Anatomy in space. Yes, it’s hard-to-swallow characters and situations, and there’s a lot of suspension of disbelief required. But I was still enjoying the show. It doesn’t hurt that Ron Livingston is so good-looking, and I like Laura Harris so much. Plus, I’ve always had a soft spot for girl-friendly space soap operas (Farscape, anyone?) in general.
I wonder if they’ll put out a DVD with the full 13-episode season, so we can find out a little more about the ongoing mystery. I also wonder when the official cancellation word will come down, since all signs are pointing toward it, but I can’t find any verifiable word yet.
