Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch (NO SPOILERS, please)

EP1 - SERENITY
Which is also the title of the post-series feature film. Confusing. In fact, a whole ball of confusion. We're thrown into the middle of a war. Why? Who? Where? Throw us a frakking bone, Whedon. Once that clears, it's Stars Wars/Western/Blade Runner pan-Asian mashup and tbh, there's not much of a plot. More like looong character setups. Can't say enamoured of any of them yet really, though Fillion has potential and Baldwin's character would be 100 times better if played by Ron Perlman.

But these two make me very happy.
I suspect one or both of them has a secret.

Verdict: meh. OK. Curious how it develops. Better get funnier.
