For Christmas, my brother and sister-in-law got me the complete Firefly
TV series DVD set. Firefly
, of course, is the greatest creative loss to science fiction television, as it was cancelled after only half a season. The fact that Serenity
, the 2005 movied based on it, won the Hugo Award is testament to its excellence, as is the dedication of the hordes of "browncoats" who keep clamoring for more. Although not a fan in the most extreme sense, I've decided to try my hand at reviewing each episode as I watch it. I've never tried this before, as I don't like feeling committed to watch every episode of a TV show I like, and but in this case there are only 14, I have them on DVD, and they're just new enough to much of the world not to be thoroughly hashed over. (I include myself in those to whom they are new, as I never saw the show until the run-up to Serenity
, and still haven't seen every episode.)
I'll probably have the first review up this weekend, but won't commit to a schedule beyond that. After all, I've been thinking the past week or so that I need to relax more, not give myself more deadlines to meet! However, if you drop in about once a week or so, you'll probably find something new.
Episode 1: "Serenity"
Episode 2: "The Train Job"
