Aquaman, Serenity, and Utopia
Things are still moving in slo-mo around here, but I took the opportunity, while convalescing, to tape and watch last night's "Smallville" episode.
Readers of Notablog should know that, since childhood, I've been a fan of Aquaman. I know, I know. What can I say? I'm, uh, different.
While I've been a long-time fan of Aquaman, I can't say the same for either "Firefly" or "Serenity": I've never seen a single episode of the former, and have yet to see the latter. Many people I know have been raving about it, so maybe someday. (I'm long familiar with actor Nathan Fillion, however; he played the character "Joey" on "One Life to Live" for a while.)
Not being familiar with "Serenity," I nevertheless enjoyed this article by my pal, Ari Armstrong. And any guy who connects certain themes in the movie with Sciabarra's work on utopianism in Marx, Hayek, and Utopia has obviously endeared himself to me for life.
Read Ari's article in its entirety.
