River Tam Sessions- Weirdness
Sunday, October 16, 2005

So I am busy doing algebra, listening to music from my Window's Media Player library. Rufus Wainwright fades away, and then....I hear River Tams voice. I poke on over to my computer and sure enough, the River Tam sessions are playing.
Creeeepy...I never downloaded these, were they designed as a virus? Is this what they were meant to do, because that's kinda cool if the R.T. sessions finally wormed there way to me all on their own.
Anyone else had this happen?

n0vaprime, the River Tam Sessions were part of a viral marketing campaign in the last month or so leading up to the release of the BDM.

They're short video clips which purport to be Alliance security footage of a series of interviews/interrogations of River by a labcoated man (played by Joss!) at the Academy. The five clips tell something of a story, show River as she was before she went crazy, and otherwise provide additional info about River's situation in the Academy. I highly recommend watching them, Summer delivers a marvelous performance and Joss isn't too shabby either.

The clips were released slightly out of order, and should be watched in that order for best effect: Session 416, Second Excerpt; Session 1, Session 22, Session 165, and Session 416, First Excerpt. You can find them all here:
