Defying Gravity is a show set in 2059, with 8 astronauts that embark on a journey through the solar system. The show touches upon many different things, destiny vs free will, science and some slight mindbend tendencies for good measure. There’s a sense of mystery all through, and this makes the show very open ended as far as story is concerned. It’s not your typical space adventure show like Apollo 13 with Tom Hanks. There’s also great humane characters in the show. Every character is ‘studied’ and I presume they will all be in the spotlight with flashbacks and focus in individual episodes. 13 episodes have been ordered apparently, but maybe if it takes off we will see more seasons. I do not know how this season will end, but I presume they can’t stuff 6 years into 13 eps. Highly recommended show.
