Sci-Fi cult series

JBQ is taking a nap right now and as I am bored to death waiting for him to wake up, I am looking at some of the cult ala-Firefly followings of the ’90s. Apparently, “Space: Above and Beyond” and “Earth 2“, fit that bill. I have seen some of S:AaB’s episodes back in the ’90s Greek TV, but I don’t think I have ever watched “Earth 2″. The cool thing is that Amazon’s amazing algorithm has bundled the two DVD sets together!

JBQ also made a revelation to me last night: Firefly is for him the best space sci-fi series ever. He always kinda snobbed it and he was not very forthcoming going to the “Serenity” movie last year, but during this last week I played back all the Firefly episodes on DVD after his arrival from work, and he gradually fell in love with it. He likes it over Star Trek now…

Oh well, some of ST:TNG episodes remain the ultimate best television for me. :)

Well, lines like in the scene with Mal’s and Zoe’s “take me sir, take me hard” when Jayne comes in and says [something like] “Now somethin’bout that is just downright unsettling” can temporarily make me forget that I’m a B5&DS9 fan :) )

Earth2 was one show, which I sometimes felt weak, sometimes felt great, but overall I think it was quite watchable and frequently entertaining. But it just might be that I like sci-fi series with longish storylines.

I think the most memorable quote from Firefly was Jayne’s “I’ll be in my bunk” (meaning that he will go to his room to masturbate). The quote was used not only among fans but also between the actors on the set too, when they just wanted to make some fun.

Ah so THAT is what that show I watched every Sunday when I was a kid is called! Earth2!

Great, now I can try to buy the seasons on DVD or something. I *really* enjoyed it, and even though it looked kinda crappy here and there, I had a lot of fun watching it.

If Amazon in your country bundles it with either Firefly or Space:AboveAndBeyond, get it bundled. You won’t regret it.

After you watch, if you like it, I want to buy Earth 2 from you. My whole family watched it (except me) and I need a good serialized show on DVD to watch.

“I’ll be in my bunk”

True, but I just came not to even notice it after a few occasions (well, except in the scene when he sees Inara with that woman client and says that). I liked much better the somewhat more unique one liner jokes and reactions popping up from time to time :)
