Good morning! And welcome to Thursday. I hope your day’s off to a great start!
Do I sound like I’m in a better mood than I was yesterday? Well, my friends, that’s because I am!
It occurred to me last night that getting back to my regular routine doesn’t have to be all bad; after all, one of the things I can get back to is My Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of. We haven’t featured one of those in a while, because even though I’m in love with as many fictional characters as ever, I’ve been spending Thursdays at my online home away from home lately. But like I said, getting back to my routine can be a good thing!
So here we go: today’s Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of is Defiance. You’ll have to excuse me while I geek out a bit here; Defiance is a brand new science fiction series, and you guys, it is so cool!
Here’s your quick spoiler-free synopsis: In the not too distant future, Earth’s landscape has been altered by an inter-galactic war between
seven eight unique alien races. Everyone has to learn to co-exist and survive together in a brand new civilization – oh, yeah, and figure out how to not get killed by the other mysterious aliens who seem intent on destroying their settlement.
But that’s not even the coolest part! Check this out:
Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story. – “Defiance” website
Holy bananas. An interactive viewing experience that moves seamlessly between two different media platforms to provide viewers with immersive entertainment that can be uniquely customized to suit their individual preferences? Don’t you just love how technology is changing our concepts of entertainment and blurring the boundaries between producers and consumers and shifting creative ownership of material?!? Doesn’t it make you curious and energized for the future of the entertainment industry and creative minds everywhere? *amb pushes her communication geek glasses back up on her nose*
My point is, you should watch “Defiance”. All the cool kids are doing it!
