Galaxy Rangers - The Ax
The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (1986–1989) is a space opera/western that revolves around the adventures of a group of enhanced rangers who patrol the galactic frontier. Since I'm the only person I know who didn't think much of either Oblivion (1994) or Firefly/Serenity (2002/2005) I'd normally roll my eyes at this kind of thing. But since episodes like this one and several others were written by hep cat sf author Mick Farren, I'll go along for the ride. In any case it's interesting to contrast Galaxy Rangers with the anime of the time, like Gundam, Macross and Patlabor.
