Yes, the series is back, updated and current.
Mixed feelings about this one. Not a lot of character development going on in the story. (Guess Battlestar jaded me - I want my character development now!) The story moved VERY quickly though. Guess they figure everyone knows the story, so why bother with suspense. Maybe they're also hoping if it moves fast enough, people won't notice that the story's not that good, either. And it sufferes from the fact we've seen it all before, and not just the orginial series. (Did "Independence Day" come to anyone else's mind when watching the ships position themselves over the cities?)
I will watch again next week, but it'll have to show improvement. Just the fact there's two former Firefly cast members on the show won't hold my attention forever!
At the moment - B-

Revisions to the cover of Book V! I guess initial review copies were too dark, so adjustments were made...
