Hey, it's okay, I got the joke. :D And I really fucked up the name, so http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/MrKitshen/Smileys/digholewr1.gif

11.30 AM is way too early to be on the board, I guess. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/MrKitshen/Smileys/speechless-smiley-002.gif

weren't they commandos or something in starhunter?
I have only vague memories of seeing a couple episodes back in the day. If they did rip it off, they deserve credit for making it not suck.

Yeah, Bounty Hunters.

And don't get me wrong, Firefly is a much, much, MUCH better show, from what I've seen so far. Til friday night, I didn't even know there was a Starhunter show.

Imagine this: It's friday night, about 2 AM. I flip through the TV channels, and see a glimpse of soemthing that looked like it could be something Sci-Fi. My TV says it's "Starhunter", so I decided to watch a little. And then I thought "Hm, this looks kinda familiar:
- The captain, scarred and hunted by his past, and a little worn out ...
- The ass-kicking black warrior woman ...
- The bright, cheerful, sexy girly who knows how to handle heavy machinery ...
- The old, slightly crappy spaceship ...
Where have I seen this before ???" :D

Then today I did a little research, and found out that Starhunter is from 2001 :shock:

Over all of fiction? None of those ideas are exactly original, all standard archetypes.

after reading this i decided to have a look at starhunter and after watching about 10 mins i was shocked by the similarity (though not of quality) and checking imdb saw starhunter was 2001.
however the starhunter we're talking about is in fact starhunter 2300 (featuring the son of the original lead character) and was made in 2003 - after (and it would seem heavily informed by) firefly.

Firefly still kicks ass. The first episode with River waking up in the suspended animation capsule kinda reminded me a bit of Melfina in the first episode of Outlaw Star, who likewise woke up in an animation capsule under similiar circumstances.
