Listening to: Cleopatra 2525
You should definitely check out Cleopatra 2525. It's an older series that has Gina Torres, the lady who played Zoe from the television show Firefly. You don't really need to catchup if you're jumping into the middle of the series. The theme song pretty much explains the plot.
Oh, and it's New Year's Eve. Happy something something.
