Flash forward to now and I continued to hear about the show and its awesomeness so I bought the season. I watched about two episodes then it fell to the side again. Too spacey, I told myself. Well, this past Sunday there was nothing on TV, and I think I have watched every BBC TV show Netflix has to offer so I pulled it back out. I restarted the series and finished it last night.
First, I totally get what everyone was talking about it is amazing. Second, it just freaking ends, nothing is resolved. Gah! Tonight I will have to watch Serenity because you just can't leave me like that. So not cool. Third, it is a space western (I love the Magnificent Seven like episode), but don't let that scare you. The plots are solid, the character arcs are engaging, and the dialogue is witty. Fourth, the cast is awesome. I may not know all of them by their real names, but I swear I recognized most everyone. The ones I do know Nathan Fillion (Castle, Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place), Adam Baldwin (Chuck), Alan Tudyk (Death at a Funeral- the British one. If you haven't seen it, get it immediately), Gina Torres (Suits) and of course Mark Sheppard (the best guest star from everything most recently Supernatural--Crowley--and Leverage).
If you are like me and you haven't given it a shot, do. It is streaming on Netflix, check it out!
