K, after browsing through several random blogs and Myspace sites, I decided I need to voice my love for the TV series Firefly.
If you haven't seen it, go rent it. NOW. Watch all the episodes in order, and then go rent the movie Serenity, which has the same characters in movie form.
We heard that this was an awesome series. Orson Scott Card raved about it on his website, http://www.hatrack.com/. My husband and I sincerely weigh everything OSC says (though we don't always agree), so we decided it was a must-see. Plus it was created by Joss Whedon, who also created the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, which we loved. So it had to be alright.
It was MORE than alright. We absolutely loved it! We fell in love with the characters, and we felt like they were our friends. How sadly pathetic! But it's true. I cried like a baby when it was over. Why, oh, why? It's SO much better than the new Star Trek series, Enterprise, and that show has lasted for what? 3 years now? Grievous!
In fact, since my DH is working tonight, I think I'll pass the time by watching Serenity. Ooh, this night is suddenly looking up...
