Yeee-ha!

Yes! The Firefly film is definitely going to be made! I am so thrilled. I've watched about six episodes now - I'm trying to stretch out the fun, otherwise I'd probably have looked at them all by last night - and I really love it. I know lots of people didn't like the western thing, but I think the whole thing just works really well. I love that shot in the credits of the ship flying over the stampeding horses.

Also? Joss Whedon's commentary is very funny.

"So, how did you come up with the idea, Joss?"
"Well, Nathan, I was very, very stoned..."

Heh.

Your post came right after katemonkey's on my Friends' page, in which she enthuses about Season Two Buffy. I want Whedony goodness! You're both making me jealous!

(It's not as good, but I do have a Season 5 Buffy DVD at the moment that I borrowed off someone. So I'll be very good and send of my revised proposal to SuperProfessor, and then indulge myself with Buffy vs. Dracula and maybe one or two DVD extras. Hurray! Suprisingly exciting!)

Do you have a multi-region DVD player? If so, I strongly recommend getting the Firefly box set from Amazon.com! The American exchange rate is so good at the moment that it's really, really cheap. Actually, your iBook could serve as a US-region player, but I think you can only change regions once or twice and then you're stuck with one.

Yeah, my iBook is the only DVD player I've got, so I'm terrified of playing US DVDs on it and accidentally getting it stuck on the wrong zone so I can't play British ones. I hate the damn zone system. It's such a blatantly protectionist policy.

The Heretickal One has a multiregion DVD player on her computer, though, as well as a DVD-RW. She's recently discovered that although most DVDs come with copy-protection on them, you can usually override the copy-protection by pressing shift. What?! That's crap protection! Why even bother?

You can copy them just by pressing shift? Wow, that really is crap! But, assuming it works on Macs, would you like me to copy the DVDs for you, then?

Do you have a DVD writer then? *eyes widen*

I'm so excited that there's going to be a Firefly movie. I finally finished watching the season (after parsing out one episode at a time), and I'm dying to see more. I just fell in love with the characters, each and every one.
Nathan and Alan's commentary on "War Stories" is pretty damn funny too.

I tried to dole them out one at a time, but whenever I sat down to watch one I ended up not getting up until at least 3 episodes had gone by. Now all I have left are a few commentaries.

Love this show.

Isn't it the BEST SHOW EVER?

*coughs*

I have the mad Firefly love. It is coming out as fic. And as squealing. And as spending meals discussing whether we'd rather be mechanics, companions, or crazy.
