~MomGoth holds up hand so high she nearly dislocates shoulder.~
The best part about Firefly was that it was cancelled after eleven episodes, before it had a chance to get sucky (i.e. to go in a direction I didn’t personally like). SERENITY, the follow-up movie, for example, does so not get the MomGoth seal of approval.
Three members of the cast of Firefly will be at Fandom Fest this weekend: Adam Baldwin (the man they call Jayne), Jewel Staite (li’l Kaylee), and Alan Tudyk (Wash).
Why do those of us who love it love it so? Partly because the run was so short it’s easy to remember the trivia. Partly because the acting, scripts, music, and production values were so darn good. Partly because it was moving and funny. I started watching it because Nathan Fillion was such a cutie, but I’ve watched it over and over because the female characters are so strong and because Jayne is a neverending source of amusement.
Here’s some great news: There will soon be a Firefly online game! Will I play? Probably not. There aren’t enough hours in the day as it is.
So will I get autographs from the Firefly crew? Are you kidding me? They want money for them! I ain’t payin’ nobody to scribble a little bitta ink on some piece of paper — less’n it’s a check. Know what I mean? — Thank you, Jayne, that will do.
