Just a quick note that today is the 11th anniversary of the airing of the first episode of Firefly.  Thank you Joss Whedon for giving us this band of lovable space travelers.  (Curse you FOX for cancelling it too soon!!)  I won’t go on and on waxing poetic about this fabulous show.  (You’re welcome haters!) But if you haven’t seen this show, it’s worth becoming a couch potato for a day to binge watch all 14 episodes and the concluding feature film, Serenity.  If you love Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Ron Glass, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, or Joss Whedon, it is a necessity as a true fan that you know this show!  And have an impressive ability to throw a quote from the show or film into everyday conversation,  including a curse or two in Mandarin. emoticonbigsmile

I have attached a You Tube video, made by user jblottingink, of the 50 best quotes from Firefly and Serenity.  The 37th quote, at the 3:00 mark, is my favorite.

Firefly is the Emmy winning, third show created by mastermind Joss Whedon.  Why yes Avengers fans, Mr Whedon created kick ass TV shows too! It is a space western which followed nine characters: the five man crew (Mal Reynolds – Nathan Fillion, Zoe Washburne – Gina Torres, Hoban ‘Wash’ Washburne – Alan Tudyk, Kaylee Frye – Jewel Staite, and Jayne Cobb – Adam Baldwin) of the Firefly class ship, Serenity; their three passengers (Shepherd Book – Ron Glass, Dr Simon Tam – Sean Maher, and River Tam – Summer Glau), and one renter, a companion named Inara Serra (Morena Baccarin,)  as they travel through space taking odd, sometimes illegal, jobs and try to stay one step ahead of the Alliance…..and Reavers.  Set about 500 years from now, in a world were Earth is decimated, and we’ve  (more…)
