Firefly

Last year some friends recommended a TV show that is on DVD here called Firefly. It originally aired on FOX back in 2002, but only lasted one season. I never really got around to buying the DVDs until November and have not gotten around to watching them until now.

The show is pretty good... a sort of space western with some Asian flare. Set 500 years in the future the government has become a joint venture between the the United States and China, resulting in a fusion of the two cultures as well. In some scenes the cast start speaking Chinese. Even the music is cowboy guitar blended with an Asian influence.

There was a movie based on the series called Serenity which came out in 2005, but I have not seen it yet. There is even talk of a massively multiplayer online game based on the series, which is currently scheduled for release in 2008.
