Firefly

I’m really enjoying the new Fox series Firefly, which airs Fridays at 8. The first episode hooked me, and it seems to get better each week (except for when Fox decides to show baseball instead—grr). Last night’s episode, “Out of Gas,” recycled a standard sci-fi plot, but it was told in an unusual fashion with three overlapping timelines. It was also surprisingly funny for a drama in which the crew almost dies. The show has good characterization, sharp writing, and a style that sits just right with me, though I can’t pin down exactly why.
