In this week's Media Consumption, a regular Gamasutra column that dares to find out what our favorite industry personalities are consuming in the four basic media food groups of of music, film, written word and video games, we speak to Reflexive Entertainment programmer and Wik & The Fable of Souls (PC, Xbox 360 Live Arcade) designer Simon Hallam. In this extract, from the 'Moving Pictures' section of our column, Hallam discusses his love of the short-lived sci-fi/western Firefly, by 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' creator Joss Whedon: "Firefly. Incontrovertible proof that studio execs are idiots and Joss Whedon is a genius. I love the show, my girlfriend recently gave me the DVD set as a gift, and I was able to see the episodes in the order that they were originally intended to be shown. Even though I already liked the show - it's amazing how much more sense it makes when the episodes are seen in the correct order. The movie Serenity (which continues the Firefly story) is great, the cast feels more like family than in any other show/movie I have seen, it was nice to see them again, but I was sad all over again when the movie ended :(" You can read the full Gamasutra column, including an extended background on Hallum's career, a confession regarding the Matrix film trilogy, and a picture of a dog shedding tears (no registration required, please feel free to link from outside sources).
