Overall enjoyable but could've been better.
9 October 2017 | by wrussel-05152See all my reviews

As a Firefly and Serenity fan I watched this all the way through because I'd watch pretty much anything with Alan and Nathan in it. The show itself was funny and entertaining but I found the underlying theme troubling.

Alan's character makes a big deal of the fact that he hates having been a part of the "Spectrum" (Serenity) universe. I was frequently reminded of when Shatner took a big shat on himself during the legendary SNL skit where he disrespected fans.

I found myself wondering if Alan dislikes his Firefly association in real life. I have to say that this would bum me out. I fail to see why this show couldn't have presented Alan's character in a better light.

I am left wondering where Alan stands on Whedon's universe and hoping that Alan isn't a jerk in real life and I don't like feeling this way!
