 Just taking a break from some math and by some strange sort of miracle found some episodes of the generally highly esteemed Firefly online (without having to go through any dodgy looking sites). Good Lord but it's mediocre. At first I thought it was terrible but then I remembered I'd sat through all six episodes of the BBCs sci-fi series 'Outcasts' which was truly, bizarrely terrible. That and the fact that I did come in with nonsensically high hopes, expecting a sort of Mad Men in space type thing ( It's alright Dr. Who, all is forgiven on your emotional blackmailer of a score and cliched dramatisms (that's not a real word, I know but it's late and I've forgotten the term for the tricks you use to induce suspense/boredom in your audience) I mean, the Doctor thinks fezes are cool. That nigh well covers a multitude of sins in my book).

Of course I will finish watching it. It'll give me something to think (and then write) about. Like why I should never become a writer. The idea of some pretentious hack blogger ripping one's baby to shreds almost brings me to tears.

Still, perhaps I shouldn't feel too sorry for Joss Whedon. It seems most people dug it.


Maybe I should check out Babylon 5 which everyone says is amazing. Or maybe I should just stick to the sci-fi in my head.
