Anyone who likes sci-fi really should give this show a try.
Most sci-fi shows/movies are basically westerns in space, but this one doesn't even try to be anything but a western in space. The clothes (Leathers and 1800 style), the dialects (Southern drawls/lingo abound), the cargo (Cattle and stuff like that), the shape of the spaceship (It's shaped a bit like a horse) and so on.
I don't normally like westerns, but this one totally rock.
Go watch it if you can.
