Shiny!

Love, love, love this motivational poster.

Couldn't we all use a little motivation?

I'm pretty sure that Captain Malcolm Reynolds could motivate me to do just about anything he wants. 

If you are a Firefly/Serenity fan you probably already know about the constant hope and recent push to bring back the show. I don't believe that will happen. Most of the stars have moved on to new projects and wouldn't be able to commit anyway. 

Besides, Joss Whedon killed off one of the best characters in the movie and the show wouldn't be the same without them.

What I think is really sad is the way that Joss Whedon talks about the show, how he grieves over it. He says he is always thinking about the scenes and shows he didn't get to write.

That is true love for your creation and real heartbreak over losing it.

I think we can all empathize with him.

I'm not eloquent enough to be able to describe Firefly like some do but I thought it was amazing.

Sure, they called it a 'space western' but that was just a small part of the whole.

The world that Joss Whedon created was just phenomenal and completely believable. The cultures, the language, the scenery, the style. Great action and suspense, terrifying bad guys and ... no aliens!

If you have never watched the show or the movie, I highly recommend both, in that order. 

The dialogue is smart and funny. The characters are witty and interesting...and hot!

Come on! Nathan Fillion! Jewel Staite! Summer Glau! Morena Baccarin! Alan Tudyk! 

What's not to like!

  4. I've never seen it, and it looks like I'm missing something - It's probably not on over here, though.

    Thanks for coming by my blog and following.
