My Lemming icon, since I am officially taking my place as a follower of other lemmings. Today's cliff is called Firefly, which I shall happily jump.

Okay, so for the first time, I kept with a show when it didn't particularly impress me on first couple of eps. But--oh yeah, I'm so here.



Wow. So far, it's been uneven, but with the last four episodes, they're totally hitting exactly the right stride. Just beautiful ACTION that does this character development, and everyone is soooo damn interesting.

Inara will grow on me. I will MAKE it happen.

I suppose what appealed to me most is my practical side. For those who have watched Star Trek or, you know, any action oriented sci-fi, the good guys annoy the shit out of you half the time whne they WON'T KILL THE DAMN ENEMY ALREADY. KILL MAIM WHATEVER, JUST DO IT. Because the enemy always kicks you in the ass later. First ep, they made me smile by kicking Stupid Minion Guy into that thing to die when he annoyed them. Now, lots of death. Happy. Guns and beautiful shooting and Zoe kicking all kinds of ass without even breaking a sweat.

Okay, so the Worst Bad Guy got away. *sighs* No show is perfect. But. Banter! Torture! Mayhem! And River kicked serious ass, looking like she was trying out interpretive murder dance with some of the most graceful shots in existence. So nicely contrasted with the beginning and the kid's chase game over the ship.

And Zoe--oh God, Zoe is just--wow. Zoe is--amazing. She's--so.

Yeah. Come ON. No words here possible. So crushing on her right now. So very much.

So in love with this show. And if it goes off the air after only one season, it WILL break my heart. It really, REALLY will.



Yep, that's about it. My current dental misery is chronicled in the diary, but highly boring.

*happy sigh*

Interpretive Murder Dance

BAAAAAAAHAHAHHAAHHAAAA. I love you. And yes yes YES. ZOE. THERE ARE NO WORDS.

"Him. Oh, I'm sorry, you were going to make me choose?"

Re: Interpretive Murder Dance

*grins*

I LOVED that line. Zoe gets some of the BEST lines and delivers them so perfectly. I am in love with her.

That and her Take me, Captain. Take me hard. Oh hell yes.

LOL ... interpretive murder dance. LOLOLOL

Kaylee/River. Little girl slash. It's better than Chloe/Lana. They were *playing*. Playing! And then River saved her! Awww ... *woobie* ... Isilya hearts Kaylee. Make her write Kaylee porn. *pokes you*

You need a "Watch it, you bastards" icon. Go get one from Jess!

I will stalk and attack!

It was adorable, wasn't it? Like kids, then, well, NOT. *shakes head*

Hee! Got to got to admit to it. Firefly is so my new fandom.

*g* I just finished posting my own 'falling in love with Firefly' rant. That show needs to be loved for Zoe alone. Plus some of the banter made me laugh. *shocked* That hasn't happened in a while. And the last scene when Captain and Zoe were discussing how they'll have to have sex... lol

I agree with you on the 'Kill the Bad guy' part. One reason I loved "Farscape" was because it was probably the first scifi show that wasn't afraid to show the 'bad' side of the hero. Nice to see another show doing something similar.

Zoe is amazing. Completely, utterly--wow.

It really DOES have the best banter and dialogue I"ve heard in a long time. *happy sigh* Just in love with it.

*nod* Exactly.

*in the happy zone*

Right there with ya

Oh yeah! It's all about the Firefly these days. Haven't watched tonight's episode yet, I take it Zoe kicks ass and takes names? Love her. So So Much. Also love River. Want to love Kaylee, but it's not happening so far. I have faith that it will. And then I'll focus on liking Inara. ;) Why are the boys so much easier to learn to like? Is it some innate female competitiveness thing?

Nah. 'Cause I like Zoe.

Anyways, Whoo Hoo. Yeah Firefly. Cancellation would result in a very Unhappy Me.

Ramble ramble ramble.

Re: Right there with ya

I'm WORKING on Inara. Something about her just rubs me the wrong way. I LIKE the entire Companion angle so much, darn it.

Oh, Zoe kicked ass everywhere. Didn't even SWEAT. Ohhh yeah. My new hero of choice.

*nod* NO CANCELLATION. Cannot take that now that the show is so damn--THERE. *nodnodnod*

Sympathy for the sore teeth. I don't have any painkillers, but Clark works as a good distraction technique for me. Does this gift help?
(Okay, since linking to Geocities to show the pic won't work, I'll upload it as an icon instead. *Fingers crossed* This should work, but I wished they showed the icon in preview.)

As for Firefly... I'm just hoping we eventually get it.

WTF? This just won't work for me, will it?

*giggles* It's cute! Do you mean the one I can see now, with Clark grinning about dentists? *eg*

*huggles* Another reason that Clark should NEVER EVER want to be human. Teeth. *nodnodnod*

Hey, it worked. ^.^

*huggles* Another reason that Clark should NEVER EVER want to be human. Teeth. *nodnodnod*

The next one would be acne. And I'm wondering about BO as we speak...

WON'T KILL THE DAMN ENEMY ALREADY. KILL MAIM WHATEVER, JUST DO IT.

And as much as I rarely ever love the morally ambiguous (cause I adore the nice heros who don't kill - freakish me), this is part of what makes me love Jayne. You know, besides the overwhelming butchness and the hotness and the fact that you just know you could manipulate the hell out of him.

And Simon actually made me love him this ep. He has snark! Snarky Simon is fun. *g*
