I'm usually quite fond of books like this one - ones that take an element of pop culture and put an intellectual spin on them. Usually, part of why I like these sorts of books is that they present intellectual stuff in a relaxed, easily-approachable way. Neptune Noir, unfortunately, doesn't do that.

Instead, it has a collection of articles analyzing elements of the show itself, but for the most part bereft of any larger context. While they do offer some insight into the show, and make you rethink a few things, it doesn't attempt to accomplish anything larger than that, which I think is a bit of a missed opportunity.
