My new heroine: River Tam!

So, thanks to Jackie Parker, I just finished the Firefly series and movie Serenity from 2005. I HAVE A NEW HEROINE: RIVER TAM. Seriously, ladies. She's super intelligent, graceful, and powerful. Thank you, Summer Glau!

And don't miss Zoe. She's most awesome as well, but her character isn't given the arc that River receives.

And there's a female mechanic who keeps the Firefly running. Shout out for Kaylee!

If you haven't seen the series, pop over. I mean it's Captain Hammer with amazing ladies of power. Thanks, Joss Whedon!

Ahhh Firefly! Good show :)

Jackie said...

Glad to be a force of good in this world!!

Also, rather relieved that you liked it!

(next: Battlestar Gallactica, but fair warning: longer and far more intense).

Yes indeed, Lorie Ann.

This is one of my favorite series of all time, LA. I was so upset when it was canceled. (boooo Fox) If you like Nathan F, he's on Castle now.

How fun that you were at the Serenity premier, LW.
