Defiance is annoying. I like Nolan just as well as I did when it started but everyone else is turning into the worst versions of themselves as worst things happen to them. It's grubby and depressing.

And I'm not sure how it makes sense. Sometimes it acts as if voting makes all the difference, and other times it's just that the new guys have all the guns.

Also the entire plot with Irisa is another oops mind control couldn't help it plot, which I may have mentioned I find increasingly creepy on a meta level, because why are we making so many of those stories? But it's also boring because if there's no choice then there's no character, let alone character growth.

murder and attempted suicide and self harm and assorted forms of abuse, spousal and child and drug abuse included, are just not themes I need to spend more time with.

yet I know I will be watching the other disc and a half, and being grumpy about it.

Season two is making me not want to keep season one, and it's annoying. Anyone can set up an epic failure. You can always get your characters up the tree. I just don't see the value in just leaving them there with the tree on fire, squabbling about who is closest to the flames.

given the same ingredients I would have gone very different places with the story, and it's winding me up that they chose to trash the place instead.

is there ever a time that you drop something in the middle of a season or do you always have to finish?

yeah, any time i've paid for something i am more likely to power through.
live tv, streaming, a library book, i will walk away. (see icon. BSG was my favorite thing until it wasn't.)
my only exception on the paid thing is movies in the theater. years of film festivals have taught me to value the time gained back by walking out.
