catching up with the world.

okay, all of you. i'm finally catching up with the rest of the world and i'm watching Firefly. i'm about halfway through.

and yeah. it's fucking fantastic. i think i like it more than any series i've seen to date in the past several years, even Farscape and Jekyll.

(i need to finish rewatching brimstone to see how it compares in quality.)

i was going to say something like, "i don't know if it beats out Blake's 7", and it occured to me how funny it was that the show premise has strong similarities to Blake's 7. makes me wonder if Joss Whedon watched it.

but i understand why Fox hated it and yanked it.

them's the breaks.

One of my favourite series. I'm glad he got to do Serenity since it tied up some of the loose ends. It would be great if he could do another film.

I remember hearing that sci fi was thinking of picking up the show but I guess that never came to pass

I was in the mall a few weeks ago, wearing my "Blue Sun" t-shirt...
out of the blue this random woman comes over and gives me a (rather surprising) hug.

"Nice to see there are other Browncoats floating around in the Valley... Keep flying"

There's so much about that series that it seriously makes me want to go kick some Fox managerial ass. But, they have a long standing history of screwing over Joss Wheadon, Tim Minear and Nathan Fillion, so its not so much a surprise they yanked an awesome show. There's a big backstory behind it all too, but I'll rant about that another time.

In the meanwhile, read this:

It's an interview with Nathan Fillion about being Malcolm Reynolds. THAT kind of attitude from a cast and crew makes for fantastic characters and draws people in. It's a shame really... sigh...

Anyway, glad you're on the Firefly tip... it's Shiny!!!!

ok, I'll stop fanboy'ing now.
