Non-Paris post: SERENITY

Guess who's going to see a pre-screening of Serenity this week?

I had been hearing for a while about this TV show Firefly that might be up my alley, but never got around to checking it out. Then just the other day I saw over at Magic Cookie that bloggers get a shot at free tickets for the upcoming movie! Of course I signed up. Now that I'm going to see the movie that concludes the series, I thought it would be a good time to see what the show is all about. None of the rental stores around here seem to carry it, so I had no choice but to buy the complete season from Best Buy without having ever watched a single episode. Now, halfway through, I am totally stoked on Serenity. I'm supposed to tell everyone this stuff:

Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE, ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family –squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.
I bet it is going to be sweet. You can read all about it here on Wednesday morning, or Tuesday night if it gets me too wound up to sleep and I write the post as soon as I get home from the theater. You can't take the sky from me.

I saw the movie this spring. It is awesome and incredibly satisfying. And Our Guys look like total movie stars.

And the BEST part is that it's getting everyone watching my favorite poor dead TV series.

Poop on you. I'm a huge Firefly fan and can't wait to see it. And they aren't letting any more people go. I'm jealous! Have a good time!
