Shiny!

I’m probably the last Joss Whedon fan in the world to see it, but on Saturday I picked up the series box set of Firefly from HMV for less than half price, and last night I watched the opening double header, “Serenity”.

Errr – wow!

I’m a long-term Whedon addict (Buffy/Angel/any film he’s been involved with), so I expected good writing, but some of the interplay between characters was just superb. The effects were brilliantly done, and the music was just right. It’s clear that JW has a backstory in mind for all of the characters, and I just wonder how much of it I’ll get from the small number of episodes that were made.

I haven’t got the movie yet, although it has been on my wishlist for ages and Amazon are offering it at a reasonable price… more than can be said for HMV, otherwise I’d have picked it up at the time.
