I thought the Defiance pilot was ok, certainly much better than the dreck that is Orphan Black. The lead actress has chops but between the stereotypical flamboyant helper and the unlikable characters there is just no reason to watch it. The actual intrigue isn't very compelling either, cloning has been done better in other shows.
Defiance has its issues but at least its got some room to grow and the concept is interesting.
