Pretty good stuff: sort of like Reptoids, but without the Jew-hating. Nice to see Wash and Inara get work. I don’t quite believe that it was intended to be an allegory of the current administration; but I suspect that when the second part shows up next year it’s going to have an extra heaping of quiet criticism. The folks at ABC are even now looking at the numbers, and thinking hard about the consequences.
And, dammit, they’re still using the ‘we need your water’ excuse. As Larry Niven once noted, they came in cruising right past Saturn’s rings, which are made of ice and has nobody shooting at them.
PS: You know you want this.
