RE-RUNS VERSUS DVDS
Thursday, January 22, 2004 2:59:54 AM
Here in Canada, the Space Channel is faithfully airing Firefly episodes every week, and I'm faithfully watching them, even though I've got the DVD set. I could watch any episode, any time, commercial-free, with or without commentary (and I do ), but I'm still turning on the TV promptly at 9 on Mondays. What's that all about? I've been trying to figure it out.
I like knowing that a bunch of other people are out there somewhere, enjoying the show at the same time I am. And I like knowing that new browncoats are tuning in and getting hooked, just as I did. And watching on TV makes it seem as if the show is still alive and important.
Every time I watch it (on DVD or TV) I notice something new. The episodes are so rich in detail--there's so much to think about! This week's episode was Shindig. In the scene where River attacks the cans of food, I suddenly got it...or thought I did. I bet those cans were marked with the Blue Sun logo and that's what set her off.
Even though River's "craaaazy" (<--read in Nathan Fillion or Alan Tudyk voice ) she's not random. I think everything she does makes sense from her point of view. Actually, that's true of all the characters. When they argue, you sit there going, "Well, I see his point. Oh, and I see her point, too. Oh, and I see why he's upset about that." Every character is the hero of his or her own storyline, and the conflict happens when those storylines intersect. Just like in real life. That's great writing.
