All these threads about the Defiance TV show having "too much sex" are killing me.

There is not enough sex!

When I watch Defiance and specifically scenes from the Need/Want I feel like I'm watching this:

Come on people. Clearly the Defiance writers have taken a page out of this guy's book:

I had to order Picture in Picture and put on the TOP 10 HOTTEST GAME OF THRONES.divx just so I didn't get bored watching Defiance's "character development" and "story".

tl;dr not enough sex in Defiance show.

I got bored of Game of Thrones (though having read the books that is part of the reason). I don't mind teh quantity of sex on Defiance. I think its silly. I just pretend they added it to make fun of HBO series which try to prove how open minded they are by adding nudity and sex.

The Wire was great. Everything had a reason to be there, the sex, the violence, it all belonged. Since then shows try to add the things without having a story reason to go with it, just to cater to their audience. Good for them. But it does not make the show "better" than those that didn't have sex - though possibly worse, after all, every sex scene are like car chases: no writing needed.

I see it as like having a tv show about living in a jungle but completely avoiding the topic of animals - its a major part of it.

Sex is part of life and ignoring it is borderline human rights violation.

Why not make Defiance a pornographic show right?! /sarcasm

There are already some saying that it is. I believe the quote was "I will not watch this immoral story" etc. They use religion and culture to judge others and that is why they squeem at human social behavior.

So is going to the bathroom, taking a shower, putting your socks on. The show is only 40 minutes though per episode. Not everything people do all day will be included. For everything that goes in, something else is left out. For me personally, I prefer the episode to have plot in that limited time.

Yes, but I doubt any of that has changed since the arrival of the Votans, unless they have some sort of standing or upside down-suction toilet....

I would like to actually see interesting plot points coupled with some decently interesting character development and minimal sci-fi cliches.

Ouch, did that burn, Trion?
