"Sad little king of a sad little hill"

Some of you may know that I am mildly obsessed with the TV show Firefly, which is a fantastic mashup of the sci-fi and Western genres. I've watched the entire series now (some episodes multiple times), but this scene remains one of my favorites. Just thought I'd share. :)

I love Firefly. It's my favorite tv show too! OMG yay. That scene is so funny. I can't even pick a favorite episode. They were all so good.

I guess the real question here is whether you like Serenity too?

@Jeremy: That's why I love this video. River is just so amazing. :)

@Becca: Completely agree.

@Omar: Of course! Serenity is a great movie, I'm glad they made it.

I might have to watch it now. You've peeked my interest, however, there won't really be much time for that soon... I guess I better get on it!

It is an amazing show - I have the complete DVD collection (although, alas, I haven't bought Serenity...yet), and I imagine a lot of people on campus do as well. I'm sure you'll find someone willing to let you borrow it...assuming you have time! :D

I got the DVDs for graduation and have been working my way through them. They'll definitely be coming to campus with me.

firefly is the very definition of amazing. one of the major reasons that i'm happy that my laptop got here on time is that now i can watch firefly on the plane!

also serenity is lame.

idk why my IE won't download certificates, they just keep failing! it is a mystery.

Aw, I liked Serenity. C'mon, who doesn't love to see Summer Glau kicking ass? (http://xkcd.com/311/)

Love Firefly.
And I agree, Serenity is awesome with just Summer alone.

Right on my friend, great scene. I would have loved to have seen what they would have done with Badger had the show continued.
