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. There are a couple of characters who are really well acted, but again.. it's not worth the trouble.

The son of a billionaire family survives them in a plane crash in the Himalayas, and returns after being raised by monks only to find their ancient enemies throughout his old home and business. Basically Marvel's Batman.

At first I was going to ignore this series, because the Iron Fist trailer made it look like utter trash, but the YUR A WHITE MALE "mainstream liberal media" response made me interested.

Even though the superhero genre is generally tiring, this show is well worth watching, and its response is a beautiful example of fake news manufactured by "social" "justice".

Follows a unit in the 101st Airborne Division during World War 2.

Quite a good story. It's full of faces I know. Great acting and spectacular realism.

  • Note: This video style is shaky.

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.

The Earth is invaded by aliens, and although civilization is cordoned off and human-managed, pockets of resistance remain.

A largely-boring drama. I don't know why I don't like this.. there's something about its tone that grates on me. I did watch ten episodes, but it never "clicked".
