Over the years, Syfy has evolved into a great network for original programming. Two examples of this are the series Warehouse 13 and Defiance.
Both have brand new episodes next Monday and, as we often do, we’ve got previews and interviews for said episodes to share with you today. First up is Defiance where a mysterious plague strikes, carried by Irathients, but affecting only humans.
Next, on the new Warehouse 13, Pete and Myka go undercover in the suburbs, while Claudia and Artie must help a young savant. Looks like both these episodes are a must-see for fans. We’ll be watching for sure.
All the fun starts at 9/8C on Syfy with Defiance. Click through to check out all the clips and interviews for both shows.
It’s Friday so that often means previews for new Syfy shows. Well, if you’re a fan of Syfy series like Defiance and Warehouse 13, you’re in luck, because today is no exception.
Firstly, Defiance is all-new; An old war buddy of Nolan’s comes to town chasing after an arms dealer, who quickly becomes a dangerous threat to the town. You can watch a sneak peek, as well as a behind-the-scenes clip of the the VFX.
Next, check out the sneak peek for a new Warehouse 13, as well as a best-lines clip from last week. It’s all to be found right after the break. So, what are you waiting for?
Loof for Defiance and Warehouse 13 on Mondays starting at 9/8C on Syfy.
It should be no surprise that we support Sci-Fi around here. Even when it’s spelled Syfy. Regardless of how you spell it, a cool syfy show is a cool sci-fi show.
Two of these cool shows are Warehouse 13 and Defiance, which has just been renewed for a second season. Both air on Monday nights on Syfy and we’ve got preview for Monday’s new episodes to share with you today.
First off, during an all-new Defiance, Amanda & Nolan take a transport across the badlands to transport a prisoner. Of course, things don’t go as planned. Shocking, right?
Then on Warehouse 13, it’s a black-and-white, noir episode with guest stars Missi Pyle and Enrico Colantoni. Those crazy kids from Galaxy Quest back together again. Good times indeed.
It all start Monday at 9/8C on Syfy with Defiance followed by Warehouse 13. Check out all the previews after the break.
Even though they ended up changing their name, let us not forget that Syfy used to be called Sci-Fi and did, in fact, care about the genere we all know as, well, Sci-Fi. Returning to their roots, the channel has a new, upcoming drama called Defiance.
The show takes place in a future Earth ravaged by interstellar war and inhabited by surviving humans and aliens. To get your interested in it, we’ve got a clip/preview for the show below.
Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene. Some people in that list you should recognize.
We think it looks pretty good. What say you America (and elsewhere)? Look for Defiance to premiere on Syfy in April of 2013.

Julie Benz appears to have gone from victim to hero in one fell swoop. After leaving behind Rita Morgan after four seasons on Dexter, the actress is primed to portray Stephanie Powell on ABC’s upcoming family show, No Ordinary Family. No longer the dead body in the bathtub, Powell is a busy professional scientist and researcher who develops super speed following a crash landing in the Amazon on a trip with her family. After deciding to move on from Dexter, Renz related that she was looking for a new challenge and the character of Stephanie was just what she was looking for.
“When pilot season started, my quest was to find a character that was strong female character, a character that is more active than Rita. I was getting offered a lot of parts that were similar to her and I was turning them down because I wanted to find something that was different.”
While there might be the temptation to compare Rita with Stephanie, Benz insists that she didn’t pull inspiration from portraying a mother on a previous show. For one thing, the personalities are incredibly different.
“I think they’re both mothers, but other than that, there’s really no commonality. Rita was not career driven at all, she was very dependent, very damaged with a lot of vulnerabilities, very emotional. Stephanie’s very controlled, a Type A personality, goal oriented and has a hard time interacting with her own family.”
Now that this season of primetime TV is coming to a close, we have a few bright spots on the horizon. We’ve been bringing you some of the newest Fall schedules, along with a few previews of upcoming shows we think look cool. Keeping up with that theme we bring you a sneak peak at ABC’s new superhero comedy No Ordinary Family.
From a distance, the story plays out like a live-action version of The Incredibles, but upon closer inspection it actually has a bit more depth. Michael Chiklis plays Jim Powell, a regular husband and father who, alongside his wife and two children, are in an accident that give each of them unique powers. His wife, Stephanie (played by Dexter’s Julie Benz) develops super speed, while his children develop telepathy and other extraordinary mind powers. Jim, however, leads the family with the gift of invulnerability and super strength.
There are some obvious and great connections to former Chiklis projects in the pilot, such as his work as Ben Grimm/The Thing in Fantastic Four, and the fact that he plays a cop again, much like The Shield or The Commish.
The pilot has the potential to be exactly what NBC’s Heroes wasn’t for a lot of fans, and could be a fun, quirky family comedy with a comic book backdrop. Check out the trailer after the jump and be sure to keep an eye (and a DVR) out for No Ordinary Family this Fall on ABC.
