Firefly Marathon 3: Serenity Part 2
The Alliance isn’t very scary, which is one of the problems of the show. They just seem sort of annoying, and they fly around in enormous ships that look like sky-scrapers. It’s as if someone explained the essential Western conflict of civilization versus to wilderness to show-runner Joss Whedon using flash cards, and he’s regurgitating it back at us in pop-up book form.
In other news, I seem to have forgotten to schedule in food breaks during my marathon. This may be a blessing in disguise, because I’ve also forgotten bathroom breaks. The lack of fluid and solid intake will certainly make for a much more pleasant living room, and make it less likely that I’ll get my head kicked in when the little lady comes back from work.
