So I'm on the fourth episode of Firefly and so far I'm underwhelmed. I see the potential in the rich universe, the whole space cowboy thing, the harshness of colonial settlement after the war, the high-class escort service, the whole mystery with the genius girl. The characters seem as shallow as the universe is deep, however. They might as well be job classes from a SNES-era RPG. Rogue with morals-check. Tough guy-check. Perky mechanic-check. I keep waiting for the preacher to call someone a spoony bard. Does this get rolling later on? Is this a genuinely good series or just good for a Sci-Fi show?
