Defiance "A Well Respected Man" OAD 5/6/13

Haven't recorded or watched this ep yet. Was this any better than last week's ep?

I liked this one a little better. The sisters' story was good. Funny that the prostitute knew who St. Christopher was. So this all happened 10 or 15 years ago?

I guess I haven't paid enough attention. What are they mining exactly? I had assumed coal or some mineral they use. Or is it just scavenging in the old city?

So the mayor was recently appointed by the old mayor, who is off plotting something. Do we know what the mayor did for a living before that? I suppose the election will be a big story coming up.

Heh. I didn't FF thru any of last week's other than the ads but yeah, there were some parts of the back story that I didn't really care so much about.

Kenya looks pretty hot in the show (at least in last week's ep). She looks better than her most of her pics on IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000477/?ref_=tt_cl_t7).

She's put on a few pounds since her Naked Mandy days.

That was not a complaint.

In IMDB there are episodes listed as if they aire January 1, 2013, before the pilot. Anyone have an explanation?

Photo from IMDB. Spoilered for future and maybe past show titles:

I'm pretty sure in the pilot they told us that Amanda was the former mayor's assistant.

Yes, that was my understanding as well.

I have to agree w/what the others said about this ep vs. the week before. This was definitely a better ep.

It kinda interesting to see that Datak and his wife are so shady.

Side note: It's too bad that two of the women have been intentionally uglified vs. what I saw at http://www.imdb.com/media/rm995732736/tt2189221.

Which women are you referring to? I've never seen Stephanie Leonidas in anything else before, but based on pictures I've seen on the net, I actually prefer the way she looks on Defiance. And Jamie Murray looks pretty much the same, only paler.

I've never seen either actress in anything else before (that I can remember) but I'd say both of them look much better in the pics I see on IMDB than in the show, esp. Stephanie Leonidas.

See http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0503060/ and http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1444665/.

and folks are wondering why the women in the Dove ad thread keep complaining about body image issues?
Referring to those that look different than one person's preference as "ugly" is the core of the issue for that thread and many others..
