Is it just me, or does this new Defiance trailer remind you of Firefly too?

I'm sure its mostly the accompanying music and the scifi setting, but darned if this new trailer for SyFy's Defiance series — airing next week — doesn't seem to be extremely... Firefly-ish, to coin an adjective. I imagine that's not unintentional. Besides, something tells me SyFy wouldn't mind at all if viewers got confused and thought Defiance might be some kind of unauthorized Firefly spin-off.


I guess we'll see when the pilot premieres next Monday, on the 15th. One other note: Wow, SyFy actually spent some money on this. When most of your TV movies star cheap CG monsters and cost about $10k to make, I suppose eventually you can afford to splurge a little.

It's like Firefly mixed with Falling Skies. Could be good.
