If you're a fan, I don't need to convince you; you've died and gone to heaven. If you aren't, then go see the most purely entertaining movie to come out of Hollywood in a long time.Although I was a huge Joss fan from back in the day I totally missed Firefly. It was the year that I changed jobs, bought a house and got married, so I was a bit distracted. Still, the fact that they somehow didn't reach supergeek me is a sign that there was something wrong with their marketing. But what Tom says there is exactly what I did. After seeing Serenity in the theater I charged into Best Buy wild-eyed and looking for the series. Fortunately a fellow geek who worked at the store intercepted me as I was bolting up the center aisle and asked what I was looking for.
And then buy the DVDs.
"It's up here at the front," she said, taking me to the promo shelf at the front of the dvds. "Last copy," she said longingly. "I hope they get some more in soon because I really want to get one."
I could see the haunted look in her eye as I seized the last copy and beat a hasty retreat to the cash registers to redeem some of my Rewards Dollars. I felt a little guilty, but it's part of the Geek's Code. All's fair in collection and obsession.
p.s. Vic was just about to get killed AGAIN when the Black Whip came in just in time to save him. BUT WILL SHE HAVE TO REMOVE HER MASK?!?!?! You gotta love cliff hangers.
