That's what I thought, until I saw the main character kick an old fuel tank about 20m towards nadir and then it started burning in a brilliant plasma ball. Reentry must be the worst-portrayed aspect of spaceflight. Other than that and a few other minor pings, I really liked that series (well, the comic, anyway. I never finished the TV show.) I believe the author made a point of not reading too much about spaceflight lest it detract from the plot (which IMO was a good move.)There's a major focus on realism[...]
It's already been mentioned, but the new Battlestar Galactica is a very good series. The plot is slow sometimes but it's worth giving a watch. Also the soundtrack is brilliant.
Add me to the list of horrible evil people who haven't seen Firefly or Serenity. :facepalm:
