I’m so glad someone took the sky from you

Amusing response. But at the risk of losing followers, I’ve always liked but never loved Firefly. I found it vastly inferior to Farscape as far as Space Outlaw shows go. Nowhere near as audacious, original, visionary, sexy or just plain weird. Farscape is a show that needs more love.

I started watching Farscape with my ex and gave it up. Need to start that again, because that show was seriously, seriously excellent.

farscape is doctor who, straight up

like real talk, 2005 doctor who owes as much to farscape as the original series, and farscape pretends to be buck rogers and star wars and shit, but tonally it’s a lot closer to doctor who than anything else

intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism

i forgot how great the matrix sequels were for having a white savior who didn’t have any idea what the hell he was doing

and she’s way smarter than he ia and she’s teasing him for it, ‘i thought you’d have figured that out by now’

in a minute a hundred smiths are going to pop up, and none of the action sequences in reloaded are half as cool or well done as the first, but everything wrapped around them is great

like, the matrix was a cool movie with sequel potential, but reloaded feels like a really ambitious tv pilot

Alien (1979) Directed by Ridley Scott

Okay I do like joking about/reblogging others joking about personal aesthetics, but if I’m really honest that whole “late-1970s through late-1980s science fiction” design style is totally my aesthetic

The fact that colonialism is so central to science-fiction, and that science-fiction is so central to our own pop culture, suggests that the colonial experience remains more tightly bound up with our political life and public culture than we sometimes like to think. Sci-fi, then, doesn’t just demonstrate future possibilities, but future limits—the extent to which dreams of what we’ll do remain captive to the things we’ve already done.
