Finished the Christmas shopping at Best Buy last night, and also picked up a copy of Serenity, which strangely enough was not on the display with the rest of the DVDs that had come out this week, but was buried back in the SF section. Bastages. I probably should have waited to buy the DVD, or better yet not bought it at all, since I've already seen the movie five times and money is going to be tight these next three months. Still...I want to see a sequel, or maybe even a second season, and if picking up the DVD will help even a little bit, then I'm in. I didn't watch the whole thing last night - just the final fight in Mr. Universe's backup transmitter room, and some of the commentary track for the opening scenes. The commentary, along with the rest of the extras, is worth the price of the DVD all by itself.

I also made the time to watch the pilot episode, finally, and it was GOOOOOD.

Still sick with the cold or flu or whatever's afflicting me, but not feeling quite as bad as I did yesterday...at this rate I should be completely healthy and hale no later than Epiphany. More drugs, more warm liquids...

Huh, Serenity was on the new release racks at the Best Buys in Maple Grove, Eden Prairie, and Roseville this week.

(yeah, yeah, sometimes I have time between deliveries and pop in one to see what's out...er, and play "Call of Duty 2" on the Xbox 360)

Not that there's anything wrong with that. ^^

I've seen the movie twice, and I still can't forgive Fox. Now, don't get me wrong. The movie alone is beautiful, but the 14 episodes built up so much suspense, so many mysteries. And they were all dashed to pieces in less than 2 hours. Although I'd like nothing better than a new season, I believe the movie irreparably damaged most of the carefully constructed plot.

I guess I'm lucky I didn't see more than one episode of the series before I saw the movie. You may be right, but I think there are still a lot of stories in that universe to be told, and I hope the DVD sales are strong enough so that Joss gets a shot at making a sequel to Serenity.
