Happy Serenity Day!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Since Hubs and I finished watching the Battlestar Galactica series, we have moved on to Firefly. We LOVED BG. And that's a big call coming from someone who doesn't generally like sci-fi, but that's the good thing about being married to someone with certain different interests and tastes to my own. I get to try new things! It took a little while for me to get into it, but I really started liking the characters and the writing got better as the show progressed. We got through all 4 seasons in about 8 months and as we were running out of episodes, we started considering our next show to start watching.

Enter Firefly. A friend who likes BG recommended it to us, but said not to get to attached as they only made 1 season due to low ratings. We gave it a go and we LOVE it! We only have 2 episodes left to watch (only 14 in total) so we're savouring them. There's also a movie that was made after the show got canned called Serenity that Hubs tried to get me to watch about 2 years ago but I thought it was boring. Now that I know all the characters, I'm keen to give it another go! I also like to think I'm a bit more open-minded than I used to be...

Often when we watch a TV series or a movie, Hubs likes to do a Wiki search and read all about the cast and characters and back stories. We were reading about Joss Whedon and it turns out that he and Hubs share the same birthday! There was cheering and excitment all round when Wiki informed us of this fact!

If there was ANYone that Hubs would be happy to share a birthday with, it's a famous power-nerd!

    Don't be in a hurry to finish Firefly. It just ends with you wanting more!

    I have fond memories of it too....i saw it for the first time with Kenny, in our pre-dating days, and after we finished the last episode, he asked me to go out with him, because we didn't have an excuse to keep seeing each other! :P

    So cute! What a lovely memory for you both. And what a great decision that was to go out with him! :-)

    2 more episodes to go...
