And, obviously, good things come to those who wait, 'cause...
Firefly 1.03, Train Job: 'Did he just go crazy and fall down?'
Okay, I am now officially on-board with the Simon-love. Drugging Jayne? That took some balls, my friend. I can actually stand Jayne when he's stoned-- can we just keep him doped up for the rest of the series? ^_~ Simon's other lovely qualities include being such a sweetie to his sister, and not flinching when Mal's being an ass.
Kellyn warned me that this episode was the network pilot, so I was worried it would be a little annoying, but it really wasn't. It was just fun as all get-out, the way BtVS was before the annoying Spuffy.
Meredith's favorite parts of this episode include:
+"That's my nephew," says the Evil Russian Mob Guy, indicating the corpse hanging from the ceiling. "I'm going to heard about that at dinner tonight."
+Malcolm: "I just wanted you to face me so she could come up from behind and hit you." Zoe: *whack* The whole Union Day fight was great. Malcolm doesn't like to admit it, but he's really just a disappointed idealist. It's why he's so cranky.
+Inara and Kaylee and playing with hair! So cute!
+The *look* on Zoe's face when Mal said, "Remember I'll always love you." It was like a cross between queasy, freaked out, and some other unidentifiable emotion. I think she really thinks of Mal as her big brother. Then, she says, "Of course, we're married, sir." X_X;;; Real convincing, that.
+Inara hit Mal. Yay! He deserved it, on principle.
+Wash. "We're not leaving without my wife." So CUTE!
+Mal pushing the Muscular Guy of Doom into the thrusters. It was efficient, at least.
+River being all Druscilla-like. What is it with Joss and crazy chicks?
In summary, Simon's growing on me, Wash is cute, Jayne is smelly and unshaven, and Kaylee and Inara have a *thing*. Yay.
The more I see Firefly, the more I want to write my little Spander-bunny crossover. Hell, if I could write at all, that'd be great. I pounded out about two paragraphs of 'From Where Ever I Am To You' and then... pft. *kicks muse*
I'm saving BSG for tomorrow, mostly because I'm kinda tired, and I'm not up to watching the Chief be mean to Sharon right now.
