I watched:

Defying Gravity last five episodes

After seeing Anim8r mention that the episodes had come out that made
me want to go watch them (remember I like to complete series) so I
found them and watched the last five episodes where we see the crew
find out their real mission. Which creates all sorts of drama as the
crew of the Antares mission has various reactions to the existence of
Beta and it's role in their being chosen for the mission.

Drama is pretty much the sole purpose of these episodes. We know it
isn't science based fiction given the apparent gravity that exists
throughout the ship. They could have easily set this up in some remote
unreachable location on Earth and told the same sort of story. Sort of
like that show that went into the Amazon. With that show claiming a
supernatural aspect while this one is claiming an alien/religious
aspect (with the one astronaut claiming the beings are from God/the
Devil depending on whether they help/hurt her.) Of course there's also
the way that everyone seems to have a romantic connection with others
in the program.

Hmm, reading through what was planned for additional seasons I'm sort
of glad there were none. It's not a bad story that Parriot planned on
telling but it is a drawn out tale that ends up rebooting all that we
would have watched.

Ignore that title.. I did some cut and pasting and then forgot to
change the date before sending it as this was discussing what I
watched on Wed. Though since the shows are from years ago it doesn't
really matter. LOL.

As I said in the other thread, I could never get past that finale's
ending on Venus, and the ridiculous idea that Laura Harris' character
survived it... :/

I think to accept her surviving that you have to either believe the
Gamma object worked to keep her alive or the genetic changes they were
experiencing made her able to survive that. After all they did say the
suit hadn't experienced a full breach so it was just tremendous heat
that she was exposed to and people have survived great burns before.
Yes, given the situation and what they showed I would expect her to
die if she were in one of our hospitals but then we haven't had energy
beings playing with our genetics for who knows how long.

It's not a great answer but when you have multiple energy beings
acting as though they one of the Gods of Greek/Roman/Norse mythology
deigning to play with mere motals anything goes.

Yeah, this is like "John Doe" - after reading what the plans for the
show were, I'm glad it wasn't picked up for more... :|

True. What I read of where JOHN DOE was going would have left me very
disappointed. Especially since I really liked that first season of the
show.

"Abortion is bad, but everybody should have one, and we're gonna reverse
your hysterectomy to make sure you can."

So not only were the writers just doing filler episodes in the middle,
the actors were adlibbing as well. And he complains about LOST?

And, OMG, that's the worst ending since FOREVER KNIGHT.

I thought you'd think that, since you're the one who originally said it. :P

What did you watch?
I definitely posted what I saw on Tuesday June 12,
but I don't see it here, so here is a copy:

GOTHAM: One of My Three Soups
Not the best of this season's episodes IMO.
Grade B

BLINDSPOT: Clamorous Night
Becoming a bit like AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.,
In that they're in trouble all the time.
Grade B

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D: The Devil Complex
Grade B+

HINTERLAND: 3x4 (Netflix)
Show final.
A sort of Agatha Christie like ending
Grade B
