Now, please excuse the impending blonde/idiot/duh moment, but:
I just found out/discovered that Adam Baldwin is in no way related to the 'Baldwin brothers'. I always thought there was something that set him apart from that family franchise.
It's hard to put my finger on.
I don't have anything against the Baldwin brothers, but I'm not a big fan, either. I also don't mean to offend any fans of their work. They have made a few good movies between them, I'll admit. But nothing that sets them apart from the rest of Hollywood.
Anyway, my infinite love for Adam Bladwin has just multiplied even further.
Comcast--which is the cable service in the Pacific Northwest, for the most part, so I don't know how many folks here have heard this--is pimping for everything it's worth the month of "sci-fi" programming. They have such features as all the Star Trek films, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, programming related somehow (in their minds) to "sci-fi" (like the E! True Hollywood Story report on the Poltergeist series)...and they're selling episodes of Firefly.
That's the good news. Here's the bad news, a word-for-word quote that the woman in the vaguely Star Fleet-ish uniform spouts brightly about once an hour:
"Set five hundred years in the future, Fireflies are spaceships whose crews plunder and loot the universe."
Well, at least they're offering up Firefly episodes for purchase. That must mean they think they're going to sell...
