So my brother recently got into Firefly, that long-lamented sci fi epic that Fox prematurely axed back in the days of yore. I suspect he only started watching cause I mentioned it in some Terminator-related conversation. Given Terminator's fate, you can guess what that conversation centered around.

Anyway, he watched the show and then the movie. Afterward he heartily recommended I give it a go myself, which I did over the past week while I was sick with bronchitis (ugh.) And then, four days ago, I watched the film.

I think I can say with some degree of certainty that I feel more remorse over Firefly's age-old cancellation than I do for Terminator's much more recent demise. Firefly was *that* good a show. I'm sure you can find some gushing reviews out there, so I won't spare any words on why it was so good except to say that if you haven't seen this quality TV series/movie before this moment, you must stop what you are doing this instant and go see them. The show's on Hulu.com and you can easily find the movie from a variety of internet sources.

Seriously. Go see them right now. And if you have seen them, do it again.

Omegle is a chat system that allows complete anonymity, relegating names to just "You" and "Stranger." Mostly it degrades into random conversations, and more often internet sex, but I had a lot of fun in one particular conversation.

And really, I couldn't be less surprised. I suppose that sounds insensitive, but I've grown dulled to bad news since there's been so much of it. It really died for me a month ago and now I can't muster up any anger at this. Because there's none. It's been a long, drawn out death in the making and now it's here. That's really all there is to it.

To be honest, I wouldn't hold this over their heads. They gave a poorly rated show two chances at survival and it didn't hold up to snuff either time. What would have happened if they renewed it again? Inevitable cancellation after thirteen episodes. That's not nearly enough time for me to finish off all the lingering stories and character development.

One could argue that THIS certainly isn't the right way to do it either, but at least with that last episode we have some degree of finality (mileage may vary, obviously,) leaving our imaginations to do the rest.

Well, anyway. It's been a fun ride. I have this show to thank for getting me back into the business of writing stories, making friends with unspeakably kind and wonderful people, and have the privilege of watching robots kick the crap out of each other. And I knew it'd end nastily, and so it has. Not much more to it than that.

Anything else you'd like to add, or is that it? Something more finale-ish, perhaps?

Ah, no? Okay.

If any of you found the music that played during Derek and Jesse's confrontation as catchy as I did, you can listen to it right here, called "New Messiah" by Dead Heart Bloom.

I dunno about retconning, (upon close examination it certainly feels possible) and frankly I could care less if it means John is actually as smart as he appears to be. Sort of.

Anyway, that's not the point of this. Two things are bothering me and I'd love to hear your opinions on it:

Points beyond the cut!Collapse )

Well, I decided to give Dollhouse a whirl after Terminator, and I ended up being pleasantly surprised with its quality. The show has been getting a bit of a bum rap from some newspapers, and there were some logical lapses and boring subplots, but overall? I was engaged, understood, and had fun with it, and what more can you possible ask for in a television program?

More behind the cut.Collapse )

Wanted for making me sick and absolutely miserable, this devious fiend goes by the name "influenza" in certain circles. His friends call him flu. Known to have a contagious personality.

If you see this man, please kill him.

This is a placeholder; I'll be playing the F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin demo today and my thoughts on it will be here later. Stay tuned.
