For anyone that can watch it:

From IMDB:
Quote:
I am a huge fan of scientific fiction, so this series really grabbed my attention.

"Defying Gravity" happens by the year of 2059, in a mission to apparently explore Solar System and its mysteries. A crew of eight astronauts is chosen after intensive training to this mission of six years long (which makes me assume the series was firstly planned for six seasons). When they arrive at "outer space", nothing is like they really expected.

This is more drama than scientific fiction, in my opinion. It involves a lot of personal issues and the life in space, that's why I called this soft scientific fiction. Don't expect good explanation for everything "scientific" you watch, because you won't have, as for example, the artificial gravity explanation is very non-sense.

I was firstly hopping for this to not involve fringe/pseudo science, but I guess it will end up on that anyways, as it's making a lot of success in series like Lost and Fringe.

As I said before, this has a huge potential to become a very good program for sci-fi/drama lovers, but also has an incredible potential to fail.

I heard this series is already cancelled, so only the first season will be released. Quite sad, I wanted to see how it was going to finish.

Good, but canceled :/

Couple of things I don't like about it, but I'll let the people that watch it discovery for themselves (it's obvious after a little while)
