Serenity Now!

My how things have changed. In the year of the climactic Star Wars episode, I’m actually far more excited about this.

If you don’t understand, go rent the Firefly TV series on DVD and get hooked. The fun, smart-aleck dialogue, edgy action, and strong storytelling of the original Star Wars trilogy are better manifested in Firefly than in the Star Wars prequels. Check them out.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Jeff is a fan of FIREFLY!
    Just when I thought there would be an end to the similar tastes in film and music we share. Great Series!I don’t watch television, threw away my antennae(sp?)years ago, but I bought the series on a whim based on what I had read elswhere and I was pleasantly surprised, a fantastic and well developed universe. My wife loves it more than I do even. Bring on September!

    No, he’s right. Serenity is a really great series. It is to sci-fi what Star Trek slowly screwed up since the original series.

    I’m sure you’re right Jeff, but still, if I want that I’ll go watch “the fun, smart-aleck dialogue, edgy action, and strong storytelling of the original Star Wars trilogy,” I’ll go watch the original Star Wars trilogy.
