I’ve been a huge fan of Christina Hendricks ever since she appeared in Joss Whedon’s Firefly. I loved her character in the show, and had Firefly been allowed to continue past one season, it would have been interesting to see how Joss & Co. would have developed Saffron — because I’m certain that “Trash” would not have been the last time we would have seen her.
Now I’d never heard of Broken Bells before, but the story of how they joined forces with Hendricks for this video is pretty cool — and I have to admit that it’s nice to see Hendricks doing something sci-fi again. I’m fascinated with the story in this video, and I can’t help but wonder what drives this android to so resolutely pursue her objective. The story is dark and bleak and fascinating.
