Serenity


The worst part of the whole “move thing” that has consumed my life for the last few weeks was that I missed the opening of the Firefly movie: Serenity. I have faithfully followed “Firefly” since it’s plagued run on FOX and have been plugging it to everyone who would listen to me ever since. On Sunday I finally saw it. I laughed, I cheered, I even got misty-eyed. What can I say about it that the critics haven’t? It was a great movie, a fantastic wrap-up for the “little show that could”. Life isn’t fair, and some things just boggle the imagination, an intelligent, witty, character driven show like “Firefly” is canceled in its first season and yet inane shows like “Yes Dear” are still killing brain cells in primetime.
