I’m finishing up a fantasy/scifi western novel right now. It’s a bunch of fun to write because it gives me an excuse to look at classic cowboy stories and tales of men riding through the desert on awesome horses, carrying really cool guns…
Over and over again people who hear this ask me whether I’ve seen Firefly. “Not that your story is the same,” they tell me (for one, it’s not in space), “but it’s a really good show in the same genre you’re doing.” My answer was always no. I hadn’t seen Firefly. Until recently. I figured after the fifth person recommended it I might as well give it a try.
Now that I’ve watched two episodes, all I can think is
What in the world was I waiting for?
Hopefully you have experienced this amazing show yourself. If you haven’t, I really think you should. Netflix allows you to stream it instantly, so there’s really no excuse for not switching it on as soon as you’re done commenting here that you’re about to obey the call. 😉 Then come back and tell me how glad you are that you did.
As I mentioned, I’m only two episodes in, and I’m trying to take my time, so please don’t spoil anything for me!
But, for those of you who are already big fans of the Show That Died Too Early, please tell me this: how can I possibly pace myself and not watch every episode back-to-back until it’s all over? 🙂
