Haven’t posted the last couple of days and it’s all ***Dave’s fault. Not that I’m complaining in the least, mind you.
You see ***Dave was carrying on about his sneak peak at the film Serenity which is a continuation of the short-lived sci-fi series Firefly and I piped up in his comments that I hadn’t seen the series yet, but was planning on it once I got back to work as I’ve been hearing just what a great series it was from just about everyone I know. ***Dave took the opportunity to purchase the box set off my wish list for me and it arrived last Thursday.
Turns out everyone who recommended the series to me was quite right, it was very good indeed. So much so that it’s a shame it didn’t find enough of an audience to continue running as it would’ve made for some compelling viewing. It reminded me in a lot of ways of the anime series Cowboy Bebop, which is high on my list of all-time favorite series. At least we’ll get a chance for one more go-round when the movie is released this fall. I’ll write up a full review a little later once I’ve had some time to collect my thoughts on it, but for now I’ll just say that it’s a worthy addition to your DVD collection if you’ve not already seen it. Or even if you have.
A big thank you to ***Dave for taking my mind off other worries for a couple of nights.
