SeaQuest DSV + Serenity
So at the end of December, the SciFi channel played a SeaQuest DSV marathon, which I conveniently recorded with my EyeTV. I was watching several episodes yesterday, and I noticed on thing in particular in an episode titled "Sympathy For the Deep." In this episode, people on a peace colony go insane. Now this isn't really anything out of the ordinary for a scifi tv show, but the interesting thing is that the peace colony is called Miranda. Now if you'll recall, this happens to also be the name of the planet in Serenity in which the reavers were created. In fact both SeaQuest and Serenity both have some sort of external method of trying to make the population peaceful, a method which ends up causing people to go nuts. Coincidence? Or is Joss Whedon somehow tied to SeaQuest DSV?
