5.0 out of 5 stars Defying Gravity - The First and Only Season November 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Defying Gravity is the story of eight astronauts who begin a record setting tour of the solar system. The mission is billed to both the crew and the world as an example of human achievement and satisfying humankind's desire to explore the unknown, but it soon becomes clear that there is much more to the mission than this. Before reaching their first destination, Venus, the crew discovers the 'Beta Object', and the true nature of their quest is revealed.

This show is full of mystery and unanswered questions that leave you with great anticipation for the next episode. Throughout the season, we get to know the crew through their interactions on the spaceship Antares and through their memories of what happened on Earth before the mission. The characters struggle with the complications of friendships, romance, and passion both on the Antares and Earth, which test their integrity and strength as human beings. In addition to the interpersonal challenges, the Beta Object is affecting the crew physically, mentally, and emotionally. We are left wondering if these changes will help or hurt the astronauts on their journey...

Defying Gravity does an outstanding job of appealing to all viewers, regardless of whether they consider themselves SciFi fans or not. Sadly, this television show went mostly unnoticed due to poor management by the ABC network. While it may not have gained the huge following desired by ABC during its short-lived debut, it has a loyal fanbase and the potential to achieve great success if properly advertised and scheduled.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SHOW November 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been obsessed with this show. It has such a great story, the actors are great, I cant say enough about it. We need more seasons. I was so upset when ABC stopped airing it. I think it would fit wonderful on the SyFy network. I really hope the writers can get this back on tv for more seasons. There is a huge following for this show. There are 2 fan site pages on Facebook with updates and lots of neat info about the show. (Defying Gravity and Save Defying Gravity) I would trade all shows that I normally watch on TV for this ONE SHOW!!! (i no longer watch ABC) CANT WAIT FOR THE DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars <333 November 4, 2009
Format:DVD
Most shows, even shows I love, I don't buy, with few exceptions, because most shows I just don't feel I'd ever watch again. This is an exception. This show is so amazing; how ABC could drop it is completely beyond me. Someone already said it, but I had been thinking it for awhile now - this show is so great, I'd swear off all other shows for this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Defying Classification April 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Prime time space science fiction is a very rare occurrence on major network television these days. Sure we've got our Stargate shows and the recent Battlestar Galactica but keep in mind that these were relegated to the SyFy network, which, in my opinion anyway, should certainly be in the habit of running science fiction shows!

That brings us to "Defying Gravity", a very unlikely serial to come to ABC in 2009 that told the ambitious futuristic tale (set in the year 2052 with flashbacks to five years earlier) of eight astronauts (four women and four men from five countries on a six-year space mission through the Solar System) where nearly everything they do is monitored via camcorder and broadcast back to Mission Control (and relayed to the public via International television).

To cut to the chase, the show was axed after only 8 episodes aired despite fairly decent ratings. Fortunately the DVD release spans 4-discs and contains all 14-episodes produced that constituted the entire first (and obviously only) season of the show.

Aside from the 14-epiosdes (13 + the pilot), the set contains a few interesting extra features: Mission Accomplished: A Look at the Defying Gravity legacy, a crop of deleted scenes, a slide show of production stills, a look at the design of the spacecraft, and some 20th Century Fox previews. Total runtime of the set comes in at 560 minutes.

Now to get the obvious out of the way from the get go, no this isn't a "Star Trek" or "Farscape" alternative by any means, it is to science fiction what Grey's Anatomy is to medicine or Desperate Housewives is to marriage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars doesn't do this show justice... January 16, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like many here, this show came to me recommended by a friend. That comes as no surprise, since ABC bungled the airing of this show like nothing else I can remember. No marketing, no advance advertising of any kind leading up to the show. I picked it up in episode 2, fortunately, and was intrigued from the get-go. And it could not be further from "Grey's Anatomy in space" if it tried, an incredibly bad advance moniker that ABC cursed it with, since they didn't care about it (which makes you wonder WHY they picked it up in the first place, if they didn't want it!).
As so many have said here, each episode left you eager or anxious (or both!) waiting for the next episode. The plotlines, flashbacks and yes, even flashforwards, in some cases, coupled with the superb casting made for an emotional investment in the characters. The cast chemistry is outstanding, something that just happens, it cannot be faked or bought. The overall story provides an original kind of mystery that can only build and has a thousand places to go, also difficult to find. It is an intelligent, thought-provoking (without being over analyzing) and thoroughly entertaining story that unfolds perfectly, much like a good book does. Though it is set in space, don't be fooled by the sci-fi aspect; that's merely the backdrop and this show could've taken place in almost any other setting. This show has almost no flaws of any kind, and only the sci-fi people nitpick over the technical space inaccuracies, of which there are not many anyway.
ABC pulled the plug 8 episodes in, but fortunately for everyone, there were a few places on the internet where the series could be picked up and seen in it's entirety, and thank God for that!
As others have said here, the final episode, 'Kiss' is worth this purchase alone.
