Hobbit on Quest
There are similarities. But they're largely superficial since the Browncoats weren't fighting for a society based on exploitation of a whole race of people. I'm not necessarily going to knock someone being critical of the show because they found those similarities off-putting. But this is one of the few environments where a heavily western-style show and storytelling can work without actually being tainted by either slavery or colonialist warring against indigenous cultures.1. The original Firefly is basically "the Lost Cause" set to film. Once you see it as neo-Confederacy propaganda, unwitting or not, it's hard to unsee. It's basically a "space western" that is retelling the story of Confederate soldiers in the western frontier.
