That Hashtag Show Review: Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1

This issue sees Mal and his crew fire the final salvo in their battle with Blue Sun. Pressure mounts as the corporation tries to wrestle control of the Sector (and Galaxy!) for itself. Now, Mal just can’t let happen. He’s especially motivated: the company has used his own likeness to forge their robotic law enforcement robots to bring him down. As usual, though luck or stupidity, Mal remains (mostly) one-step ahead throughout Blue Sun Rising No. 1.

Monkeys Fighting Robots Review: Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1

It all comes to a head here, in Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1. The crew on Serenity has gotten in over their heads on more than one occasion, and this time is no exception. Heck, even the stakes are something they’ve had to with before. It’s almost refreshing to see them tackling it all head on, once again.

But Why Tho Podcast Review: Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1

Pak’s script perfectly nails the tone and characterization of Firefly. Mal is still cunning and willing to fight for what’s right, even when outnumbered. Kaylee is still the plucky mechanic, and Wash is still the sardonic pilot, Jayne is still Jayne. Fans who love the show will definitely get a kick out of this issue. Pak also balances the various tones that showed up in a Firefly episode: humorous bits (most of them with Jayne) and rather touching moments. There is a heartwrenching scene toward the end with Mal and his mother, and it nearly made me shed a tear.

Variety Interview: Leonard Roberts Speaks Out About His Treatment on ‘Heroes’

“Daddy, why are there wood boards over all the store windows?” my eight-year-old daughter Evan asked as our family walked our dog along Venice Boulevard. Two-and-a-half months into the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, the streets were quiet, as a curfew was in place. Stores all over Los Angeles were being boarded up after looting had followed a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in nearby Santa Monica the day before.

Nerdist Review: Normal Again

Back when I first started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I could not resist the humor, drama, and the monsters. They so often dealt with universal issues with specificity. Now, stuck indoors in New York City as COVID-19 cases increase once again, there’s one particular episode that hits more deeply than in my original viewing. The sixth season episode “Normal Again” explores mental health amid our current isolation and disconnections.

CBR Interview: Morena Baccarin Talks Disaster Movie, Greenland

It was like a real family. We got on each other’s nerves, we talked a lot, we disciplined. It was fun. We spend a lot of time together and had a lot of challenging moments. And when you’re working with a child — he was a real champ — but you have to bank his stuff first for many reasons, hours and also exhaustion, and it was good and bad.
