Well, it's time. Serenity's coming out next weekend, and I can't tell you how psyched I am to see this film. M. E. Russell in The Daily Standard can give you the details of its genesis and marketing push. I can only say that it's based on Firefly, the short-lived Joss Whedon show on Fox. It was a brilliant show that I actually wanted to watch on TV, but due to its Friday night time slot, I never got around to it. Neither did anyone else, so it got cancelled after 11 episodes. Then it came out on DVD and sold a couple hundred thousand copies, so I figured I'd check it out.
Glad I did.
Nothing like a cowboy space opera where all the cursing's in Chinese. Go see it. Bring a friend. You've got a week to buy the DVDs (only 30 bucks, free shipping, no tax!) and watch all 13 glorious hours of this top-notch sci-fi show. Or, they're airing every episode in order on SciFi next Tuesday. Set your TiVos.
