Greetings, Fellow Browncoats!

So there's this show that came out back in 2002, maybe you've heard of it. It's called something like this:

Someone called me out on Twitter ::cough:: @TrishaleighKC ::cough:: when I mentioned that I didn't know who "Jayne" was via a convo between a few people. When I announced that I hadn't seen it, they said:

Basically, everyone on Twitter told me I had to drop everything and watch this show. I listened, because you don't mess with Twitter folk when majority of your feed is screaming "DO EEEET." And let me tell you something, Twitter knows what they're talking about.

The first time I saw the credits and figured out that it was a space western, I was like:
Because HOW AWESOME IS THAT!? How could I have missed something this amazing all this time? Where have I been?!

Some people said it would take a few episodes to get into, but with such hilarious and fantastic characters surrounded by phenomenal world building, it sucked me in from the get go. As I've told a few of you already, I am completely baffled by the fact that this show was canceled so early on. Actually, when I looked it up and found out it was taken off the air mid-season I was like:

So here I am obsessing over this show with the knowledge that the awesomeness is only going to go so far. Once it's on I can't look away, like this guy:

Ever since I started watching Firefly, I feel like I've become part of some badass club I never knew anything about:

And people no longer have to think this about me:

I love finding new things to get into and this was something that needed to be done ages ago. I'm embarrassed by how long it took me to discover Firefly, but now that I have I'm like:

So thank you, Twitter, for the best recommendation EVER! Now if you excuse me, I have a Firefly marathon to get back to.


  1. Yayayayayayayyyyyyy! It's just SO GOOD. I o my watched it last year, but every time I rewatch the show or SERENITY (the follow up movie) I want to cry that it's gone all over again.

    Enjoy! I'm loving your tweets as you experience it for the first time. :)

  2. So glad you've come into the light. It's a touch tragic, given there's only that half season, but at this point, that's part of what makes it so gorram fabulous.

  3. Yah! Glad you liked it! Welcome to the Browncoats. :D Once you are done you need to watch "Serenity". Then watch the outakes from the movie. AWESOME!

  4. ADORE. THIS. SHOW. *sobs* I cannot believe it got cancelled! Now I feel I must rewatch it all. Today. *drops everything and turns on Netflix*

  5. It's one of the few shows that I can't turn off when they run a marathon on TV. I MUST WATCH! And then, of course, I cry again when it's over.

    Side note: I was on a Girl Scout excursion recently, and a girl in another group was named Serenity. I choked up every time I heard someone call her name.

  6. It's SO GOOD. And I LOVED the film, too. GLAD YOU FINALLY WATCHED IT!!!

  7. So of course I'm crazy about the show, but I have to ask--WHERE did you get these graphics? They ROCK.
