[personal] Firefly

Well, kenscholes finally brought me over to the Brown Side of the Force. He loaned me the DVDs of the run of Firefly, and I have been watching them whilst doing various things around Rancho Lake. I was pretty baffled by Serenity, and why everyone loved it so much.

The answer of course, known to everyone but me, is all the character development in Firefly, without which Serenity is largely devoid of context. I still say Firefly/Serenity is rather mediocre science fiction, but it's hellacious good story telling. I just finished watching "Our Mrs. Reynolds", and I laughed so hard during the first part of it that I was fit to pee.
