Since I found Serenity

... I can kill you with my brain.

Are you a Star Wars fan and crave some more swashbuckling fun and excitement in outer space?

Do you think Han Solo is one of the coolest junk heap driving, blaster appreciatin', good guy scoundrels around (and want to see more characters like him and his ship)?

Do you wonder what in the ruttin' heck Sol and Vic are talking about when they say "I'll be in my bunk"?

Have you laughed at Rive's use of the expletives "gorram" and "shiny" but had no idea where the prissy little 10 year old ribbon barrette weilding cookie slinging girl scout came up with them?

Wonder where all those other quotes the cool kids keep spewing are coming from, because for the life of you, you can't find them anywhere in the Star Wars films?

The time is now to get crackin' and get educated. See for yourself why so many fans of Star Wars also think the 2002 one season wonder Firefly is so gorram shiny. You may love it, you may hate it, you may not get it, but you'll never know until you give it a try. Go out and rent the four disc TV series on DVD, or better yet - buy it. But hold off for 9 more days (is my math right?) on buying the subsequent movie that takes off from the Firefly series, called Serenity.

Why now you ask? Why are all these Firefly and Serenity blog entries popping up at blogs.starwars.com? Well, I won't take up your precious time and attention spans talking about why I like it... not now at least. Find out for yourself why there's a large and growing fan base behind the show and the movie, and see if you want to be part of the fun, part of a community that can make something happen through each individual's participation. Start watching Firefly today.

The fans are keeping the spirit of Serenity (the ship and the film named for it) alive by getting together, and spreading the word to the uninformed, to purchase a copy of Serenity on DVD on June 23rd.

So if you're not a fan yet, the next 9 days are a good time to watch the Firefly series and decide for yourself if it's something worth joining in with the fan fun, and supporting by buying Serenity on June 23rd. If you have to order the movie, make sure you do it on the 23rd... and you can always rent it on that day too if you want to watch it (rental sales count too!) - Have a Serenity party! Already own the movie? Buy it as a gift for someone on the 23rd. Been thinking of buying it anyway? Hold off until the 23rd and watch the Firefly series in the meantime.

Worse could happen is you'll pick up soom cool Chinese terminology ching-wao tsao duh liou mahng! Dong-ma?

With a show of enough fan interest and support, we may see another Firefly/Serenity movie come about, and possibly even the continuation of the TV series in some form.

Yeah... so I promised guitars with this public service announcement. Um, pop in one of them there Firefly DVDs and you'll get a nice little guitar ballad with every episode, written by master of the black, Joss Whedon himself. Joss who? Click around some of the links in here to find out about him.

Serenity would make a dandy Father's Day gift as well. Since in the US dad's day is on June 18th, he'll have to get a card that says he'll be getting the movie on the 23rd. ;)

I've Seen Both Firefly And Serenity. I Don't Actually Have The Show Yet, But I Do Have The Movie.

I Really Wish The Show Wasn't Canceled.

Woah nob01... a leaf? You? How.... organic. ;)

Hmmm, seems as though this is only getting out to the already knowledgeable. After the 23rd, this space hog is outta here. - I mean the entry... not like pigs in space.

I concur with Jkthunder strongly. To any who have yet to see Serenity or the Firefly television series from which it was spawned, let me tell you this: it is such a cool story that I am going to watch the Wonderwoman movie when it comes out, simply because it was made by Joss Whedon. (And no I have Zero interest in Wonderwoman, but Joss Whedon's behind it, so I have to give it a try.) Yeah, Firefly is that good!

I felt the same way about mine. I think I might have reached out to one person. I'd better go harass him again...

Go get 'em Marvolo!

Me thinks we need more people to put up Serenifly blogs every day leading up to the 23rd. Day and night shifts. ;)
