amc [hearts] jw

My geeky little TV heart may have been stolen by Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls, but I just realised that it'll always belong to one thing. Because when I watched the Serenity trailer, just the words "the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer" appearing on the screen sent a genuine shiver down my spine. Oooh, I can't wait!

ETA: Oh my God, I just read the suggestion that the trailer means River is a Slayer (which didn't cross my mind when I was watching it, but which makes sense). If that's true, THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST FILM EVER!!

Psst. Did you get my message?
Apr. 26th, 2005 09:29 pm (UTC)
Oooh, no, was it a phone message? My phone has been recharging in the kitchen for ages so I may not have heard it.

It was - I'll ring you in a minute or so!
Apr. 26th, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC)
Gah, missed the call, but got the message - alas, I can't go myself - there's a Farewell to Ladyfest club night on!

Seriously, anyone who did not get squeeful at that promo is made of much sterner stuff than I.

I am positively giddy.
Of course, now I'm vaguely resentful of Hitchhiker's Guide for hijacking Serenity's original release date. (I'm still going to see HG on opening day, so I'm not resenting it too much.)

Umm, Maybe I'm overly spoiler sensitive but could you cut tag such speculation, please?

(Though, yeah, that would be great!)

Sure, but that's pure, pure speculation - I didn't get the idea from the trailer, and someone else just said "wow, imagine if that means...." so I didn't think it was any more spoilery than me going "wouldn't it be cool if Buffy's great-great-grand-daughter is in the film?" or something along those lines. Unless you meant it's spoilery for the trailer, in which case, fair enough.

If you haven't seen the trailer, and don't want to in case it's spoilery, I should add that this speculation comes from nothing more than River being in a fight, so doesn't give anything away.

It's more that I rarely read speculation threads because while I like wondering to myself what might happen I don't like having the watching experience affected by too much pre-analysis.

The fight does look very slayer like, though :)

I know! Although it didn't actually dawn on me that it could actually be a Slayer fight when I was watching it. I don't know how that would fit into the Buffy/Fray-verse, too....

I know what you mean about speculation - it's why I never look at speculation threads about Veronica Mars, in case someone comes up with a solution to the mystery that I haven't thought of and that I immediately realise has to be it.

I always assumed (from watching the series) that the Alliance had been secretly training River to be an assassin or stealthy soldier of some sort. So when I saw the trailer I thought they'd triggered her fightin' training, like when the crew went to rescue Mal and Wash from Niska in War Stories. I don't get a Slayer vibe, I think Buffy-verse and Firefly-verse are different places.

But if River is a Slayer then I'd lay money that Wash is Xander's great-great-great-great grandson :)

Seriously, anything linking the two would make me so happy I'd probably cry with joy. But I think you're probably right about the assassin thing!

I've just seen the trailer and have goosebumps all over.

I don't think the film people would have gone for the Slayer thing if they're aiming for a wide cinema audience. But the idea is awesome.

Yeah, you're probably right. We can but dream!
