She's too pretty to die

I must say I am very giddy at the moment with some wonderful news... Firefly is going to be returning to cable. This article though made it sound like they were continuing the episodes. Firefly' returning to cable; Fillion says he'd play Mal again -- Damit! After I read the article I was still excited that they are reairing it. But, you don't tease about Firefly. So check your local channels for airing. Or go to netflix and rewatch. Why did I love firefly. Look, I grew up watching the old Star Trek, my favorite episode was trouble with tribbles. I even have the trading card of kirk up to his armpits with tribbles. I also watch Buck Rodgers and Battle Star Galactica. I love sci fi. and another more recent one (well not so recent) was Farscape. It's pretty bad when I get so involved with the characters I cry during certain episodes.

Now I honestly haven't watched but a few episodes of Battle Star Galactica yet (i know I know) but I only have so many hours in a day. I don't have cable so alot of what I watch is on netflix and they just seem so serious. I like the lackadaisical ones.. But I will give it a chance at some point. In the mean time, I catch myself watching things that make me laugh and cry. Or laugh so hard I cry. Like Dr. Horrible's sing along blog. If you haven't seen it, watch it and work on your evil laugh and you might see Fillion as Captain Hammer. Pffftt... If you like that and your into any sort of online gaming or not and just know people who are, Felica Day is on Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog also has her own as well... The Guild, which is another I watch and giggle at.

Ok - I have rambled on enough, don't even get me started on talking about the Zombie movie Fido. I leave that for another time. Yes - I think I geeked out enough here.


  1. I still need to just sit down and make time to watch Firefly. Everyone I know who has seen it, loved it.

    I do love Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog and The Guild, though. Have you heard about Felicia Day's Dragon Age miniseries?

  2. Yes!!!!! You do need to sit down and watch. They have great character building. I was really sad when it was over. I'm sure you will like it. If not I'll, I dunno, say sorry? Lol. Then after you watch that you can watch the movie Serenity, which is awesome. Ok now that's your homework. It's a short series so it's not too overwhelming.

    Excellent, what a random happen chance that you like both too! :) OMG.... I did not know about DragonAge and Felicia Day, looks freaking awesome! Thank you for telling me. You've earned 20 points in Dexterity in my book.

  3. 20 points of Dex! I feel like my life is now complete.

  4. Believe it or not, it was not until watching "Serenity" a couple of times that the odd, somewhat old timey speech became evident. It was like something out of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower." Then again, "Firefly" was like a western with a spaceship and a band of misfits trying to make a living outside of the Alliance. Browncoats LIVE!

    Tell me, were you also a fan of "Buffy" and "Angel?"


  5. By the way, I also have all of the "Serenity" comics and graphic novels that can be collected, some with alternate covers. Just so I can get my "Firefly" fix.


  6. Joseph d Artist : No I have not watched either Buffy or Angel. Some friends told me I would like it. I did watch Charmed and was an avid fan. Maybe at some point I will watch Buffy. Too many on my list to watch right now.

    Dark Towers rock and I agree with you. Actually when I saw the previews for Cowboys versus Aliens I thought - just maybe they were making it about Dark Towers and then I quickly realized it wasn't. :(

    O well. Oooo I love comics. I was a huge fan of Neil Gaiman and his Sandman series and the one regarding Death. Love.... I have gotten into Fables and a few Batman graphic novels. I love it. As for Firefly comics. Ive seen them but just wasn't sure if it would ruin my images of the crew.

    After I was done with Firefly - I needed a fix... So I started watching Farescape which you grow to love the characters as well.

    Thanks for the info. Ill have to check the comics out!

  7. There was a reason I liked you. I too was a big fan of "Charmed" and have started collecting the comics inspired by the series. In addition, I have been a fan of "The Sandman" for years. Of the entire collection, I've only got two or three of the bound graphic novels.

    Death is my favourite of the Endless. I even have a journal of her that I've written in my somewhat dark thoughts. It is my "Death" journal and use to post scanned pages in the MySpace days.

    "Farscape" has got to be one original show, if only to combine Henson puppetry and live actors. Claudia Black is HOT. I followed Ben and Claudia into "Stargate SG:1."

    I know you'd like "Buffy" and "Angel." Hell, I'd mail you some of my DVD collection.


  8. Thank you Joseph d Artist. I had a friend who let me borrow the first season. I never had time to watch it. I do know they have it on netflix so maybe I will watch it some day. Haha - awesome you know of Farscape too - yay!

    A death journal? OK, if you haven't seen this already you may want to check this out, there is an Anime out called Death Note after the Manga. It's about a Death journal.
