The SyFy Channel recently aired Riverworld, based on the Phil Farmer books of the same name. I watched the first half and so far, I’m not impressed.
All I got out of it was that Farmer apparently “borrowed” the hooded people depicted on Blue Oyster Cult’s 1981 album, Fire of Unknown Origin, and turned them into the Riverworld blue-skinned caretakers. And yes, I have it in my collection if you’re wondering. It’s an excellent CD.
But don’t take my word for it – You make the call. Have a look.
