    On the western to sci-fi thing - Star Trek was originally written as a western, but the censors wouldn't let it on TV. Roddenberry changed it to sci-fi so they couldn't claim anything referred to real people/groups.

    My wife calls it cowboys in space. She will be thrilled to learn how right she is.

    There is, kind of. It's the movie Serenity, which finishes the storyline and features the original cast. Quite good.

    Thanks! I’ve seen hints of that but didn’t really grok what it was.

    Careful. Once you watch the last of it, it’s sadly over.

    I haven't seen either (well, a little of the manga...) but love the soundtrack for the manga version, by "Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts". Great blend of a slew of styles: jazz, blues, latin, on-and-on-and on...

    Wait--there has been disrespect for Cowboy Bebop!?!?!

    Some of the best animation anywhere, and a killer soundtrack. Like, really killer good jazz. An amazing show.

    I didn't realize there is a live action version. Is that a recent thing?

    Randall Munroe is a big Firefly fan. Probably drew up a dozens comics on it.

    Never seen it, but if Randall likes it, then it must be good.

    (Pretty sure half of those comics involve Summer Glau.)

    I’ve never heard of Cowboy Bebop. My weekend plans just firmed up.

    its on Netflix. Made here in New Zild if I remember ...
    Anyway, its one of those modern uber violent shrouded in humour things, starts out so frenetic I turned it off. However I did go back and persevere through that and enjoyed the series. There was a cameo of a car type I owned when I was a kid , 59 Pontiac laurentian...

    I felt the same, maybe I should have another go at it.
    I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned

    Having watched all of the Firefly episodes of season one (sadly the only season), I watched the two hour movie “Serenity” last night. I was pleasantly surprised that, unlike a lot of series/movie combinations, Serenity seemed like an actual episode of the series and it did do a lot to explain the overall plot. It was good, my only complaint is that too much of it was devoted to violent. fight action scenes. I admit that some of that advances the plot, but much less of it would also serve that purpose. But that seems to be what sells movies these days I guess.
