Feigning normality since 1973


Filed in: TV & Movies.

I realised today that I'd completely forgotten to watch the Firefly premiere last Tuesday. Having enjoyed Buffy and Angel, I was interested to see what Joss Weadon would do for a space series. Fortunately my dad, who also likes Science Fiction, still had it on tape.

In case you didn't get the parallels, all the incidental music appears to have been ripped from a Western, as well as the clothing and the look of much of the worlds they land on. Would probably appeal to fans of Cowboy Beebop. It also reminded me a lot of the group from Alien: Resurrection, which Joss wrote... I took an instant liking to most of the characters, and it's good to see Gina Torres in something again. :)

Shame we're getting to see it two years late, but better late than never...

I really liked Firefly (didn't see it first run, but bought the DVD set), but the true gem, IMO, is "Trash" (which didn't actually air in the US). Shame it was cancelled before it could get a decent foothold. It's a good series.
