In a world ruined by an alien invasion and terraforming, an ex-military turned scavenger and his alien adopted daughter take refuge in one of the few reasonable settlements: Defiance.

Although it has elements I like, it doesn't have anything that actually grabs me. In a world where there is so much else of better quality, this is not recommended.

A classic work combining classic works.

I bought this because it's considered one of the great works of literature and has survived into common culture. Though I can see why this would have been popular at the time, especially thanks to the forward saying that the brief writing style was rare, I don't yet see why this would appeal to today's person. Perhaps it's just me, but so far I find the writing style rather insulting.

Agents with a formerly-secret worldwide law-enforcement organization work to safeguard the world from the lesser challenges now too-frequent for superheroes alone.

Good enough, although so far it's one of these episodic shows which has a new problem every episode.
