Anyone seen it? Is it any good? I've had it recommended to me, but I want a Christian perspective before sitting down to watch it.
ANB is good. Change my mind.

One of the main characters is basically a prostitute (they have a school in their universe where "Companions" can train and learn and such and they get a license so it's "legal") and while they talk about it there is no nudity shown on-screen (though some is implied with camera angles in a couple scenes over the course of the show). There is no actual swearing (they use replacements for them, though, so the idea is there).

Other than that, it's a pretty clean show. I thoroughly enjoyed it and watched the whole series + the movie in about a couple week's time.

The first episode is slow but once you get through that it really picks up.

There's quite a bit of sexual content. As mentioned one of the characters is basically a prostitute, and pretty much every episode there was something like that. TBH I was a bit shocked at how recommended it was even by people of this community. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but that was my first impression.

TBH, it's not as good as everybody claims.

I saw a couple episodes and my impression matched Westy's description and I didn't think it was worth finishing.  I recall the movie being a little better but not that much.

 I think some of Joss Whedon's other stuff is better than this.

I agree with the two above posters. I've watched the whole series + the movie, and it's not for me. Even looking past the overt sexual themes, I didn't get into the universe or characters at all and was rather bored by it. If you want wild west outer space, and can overlook the sexuality of the show (seriously, EVERY episode) then this is for you. I'd take straight up wild west any day though.
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?
