So, yeah guys... I haven't been around much lately. I've kind of sucked at being a book blogger. I just came out of this month long reading funk and I haven't even read enough to review, but I'm not going to make excuses. Besides, this post isn't even about that. It's about what I've been doing in the midst of aforementioned reading funk. Which is watch Firefly. For the first time. And it kinda blew me away.
I'd heard of it before. I'd heard other book bloggers mention it, and vloggers vlog about it, and they all said how amazing it was, but I didn't really know what it was about. I just thought it was a normal sci-fi, only slightly better because Joss Whedon made it. But when I started watching it, earlier this week, I fell in love with it. Like, more in love with it that Buffy, which is saying something. And I know I'm kind of late on the whole Firefly thing, seeing as it was made in 2002, but I just thought you'd like to know.
So yeah, when I started watching it, I wasn't really fully prepared for the awesome. I was expecting spaceships and aliens and laser guns. Instead, I get spaceships, horses and the odd Hawaiian shirt. Safe to say, I was pretty confused. But I kinda thought it was genius. And the further I got into it, the more awesome it got. It was funny, it was dramatic, it was clever, it was emotional. And that last episode was brilliant. Seriously amazing.
How could Fox cancel it?! Are they stupid?! It is one of the best TV shows I have seen (though bare in mind, I am 14...) And there was so much left to tell! So much that we won't know, all because it wasn't getting enough views or something. It's just such a good show! I don't think I've come across a TV show where I've genuinely loved all of the characters, even the ones who I thought would really get on my nerves like Inara or Book. *sighs* I'll just have to get over it. It happened, like, nearly ten years ago. *sad face*
Well, thanks for putting up with my Whedon-based ramblings! Now to watch Serenity, and then re-watch Buffy... :)
