WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? I mean watching Firefly!
There is a pretty big library of different space adventure style movies and TV shows that float around in my head. I especially love Cowboy Bebop, a Japanese anime about bounty hunters in space, called cowboys, and very much done like a modern-day western. (See image below) The story was deep, the characters and story lines were beautifully written and it tugged on my heartstrings in all the right ways.
I BRING THIS UP BECAUSE…
Firefly really does bring back a lot of those feelings. Almost immediately I got a really similar vibe and said to myself “like a live-action Cowboy Bebop. Sweeeettttt…” I love that I recognize a lot of good actors from other shows I like, such as Adam Baldwin (also in Chuck), Alan Tudyk (also in Suburgatory), and Gina Torres (also in Suits). Now please don’t think me that stupid, I know Firefly predates these shows. I also just never got around to watching it. I kinda can’t believe it myself.
MY OFFICIAL VERDICT SO FAR? Love it!
