“Take my love, take my land. Take me where I cannot stand. I don’t care, I’m still free. You can’t take the sky from me.…”
Now, we all love the title sequence to Joss Whedon’s beloved, but incredible short lived space western Firefly (sweetest title song I’ve ever heard), but lets face it. It didn’t quite sell the show (to anyone other than Whedon fanboys).
How could it have been better? Well, the incredibly crafty bastards at io9.com made the opening credits to Firefly to look like the show had been made in the 1980s, complete with 2D black computer graphing and freeze-frames as each actor appears. And, a synth-hapyy, guitar-solo for good measure.
Truer to the plot? Perhaps not , but to qoute io9 “Look at it this way… Street Hawk had 13 episodes aired before it was canned. That’s two more than Firefly!!! Is it a better show? God no, it’s terrible! But man, what opening credits“.
