ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 11/18/09

As many of you know, we here at Republibot have been pretty steadfast in our coverage of the sadly departed “Defying Gravity” series, which was - alas - dead before it ever even hit the air. A lot of you have emailed or posted in comments, wondering what would have happened next in the story, or asking how to contact the producers, so you can ask ‘em.

Well, now we know!

EPISODE REVIEW: Defying Gravity: “Kiss” (Episode 13)

I’m a sucker for goodbyes. The way things end are, for me, a lot more important than the way they begin, if only because, so often in life, we don’t really notice when things begin.

In 2047:

The Ascans are facing the first cut - of the 30 of them in the program, ten will not survive to the next round. We’re told that Zoe and a couple others are on the cusp, but Eve wants Wassenfelder on the mission for some undisclosed reason, which means someone else has to get bumped.

Our stint as the only American Webiste covering Defying Gravity continues! We’re doing this (A) because we like the show, and (B) as a service to fans who’ve been jerked around by a lack of network support and scheduling, and don’t feel like waiting around for six months to see the final episodes. We’re also hoping to engender discussion and support for Canadian viewers who are looking for info and observations about the show. If you’ve found this review, and you know people who like the show, please do tell your friends!

EPISODE REVIEW: Defying Gravity: “déjà vu” (Episode 10)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Our brief and noteworthy run as the *only* American website that’s covering “Defying Gravity” continues, as we watch episodes that have aired in Canada, but which sit moldering on the shelves here in the ‘States because the network selfishly wants to run shows that are popular instead. At least for this one episode, they more-or-less made the right decision, since there’s little in this one to attract people. It’s kind of a place-holder episode that adds little to the ongoing story.

EPISODE REVIEW: Defying Gravity: “Eve Ate The Apple” (Episode 9, Not broadcast in the US)

As anyone reading this knows, the network has more-or-less abandoned “Defying Gravity,“ and made a hokey announcement that episode 8 was the “Season Finale,“ when in fact there’s at least four more episodes in the can. I’d asked our foreign readers to pitch in, but so far no dice. In the meantime, astute Republibot-in-Training “nwkeys01” actually found the episode online. Special thanks, man (I assume). We will now all pause for 15 seconds to sing your praises.

DEFYING GRAVITY: An Appeal to our International Readers

It just occured to me that the "World Wide Web" is called that because it's "World Wide" (Well, duh). Now, I'm not assuming that a website called "Republibot" is probably going to have much to attract people from a lot of different countries, most of which are far more liberal than the US, but we *Do* manage to get a fair ammount of international traffic.
