More Cowbell in Riverworld

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.

I gotta have more cowbell…

    I completely agree. There is definitely a resemblance between the album cover and the hooded people of Riverworld.
