*cosmic scream*

Rockne S. O'Bannon (i.e., the man who brought us Farscape!!!) has a new upcoming show on syfy, called Defiance, which seems to be a post-apocalyptic space Western - I've always liked Westerns but Firefly made me kinda incoherent about the space Western thing.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't screw it up, TPTB! Please! Because it makes me remember Farscape and Firefly and other awesome awesome awesome things.

(I apologize to those who have friended me for dramas, which is probably most of you at this point, but I am on a scifi kick for bit).

I have decided to resume my rewatch of Farscape, starting with the ep I stopped at last time - Season 3 finale, Dog With Two Bones. Oddly, this was the very first FS ep I saw and it hooked me. Five minutes and I am set to be a blubbery mess.



GUHGUHGUH. This is such an encapsulation of John's worst nightmare (that he will be responsible for the deaths of everyone he loves, and Aeryn above all) but also, I think, the guilt he does feel for what everyone already had to suffer because of him and Scorpius' fixation, above all his fear of causing Aeryn to die (such a mirror fear to Aeryn's fear of having him die - even if in her case she isn't afraid it will be her fault).

Ginormous picspam to come.

We also continued our Firefly rewatch with Our Mrs Reynolds, Jaynetown and Out of Gas (those last two eps are my number two and number one eps, respectively).

Oh, how good it is. And I am not just referring to the kissing in OMR, either :)



In OoG, when Inara doesn't want Mal to die alone - eeeee. But the thing that gets me the most is his asking whether everyone will still be there when he wakes up, at the end. That is the most vulnerable we've seen him.



I kinda wince through the whole ep, at the h/c. (They are good at foreshadowing too - the compression coil that went bust is something Kaylee mentioned as a problem as early as the Pilot).

ETA: And now we finished Ariel and Out of Gas. So much love!

Btw, did I mention my mad love for Simon/Kaylee?

In-between walking and playing with the baby, Mr. Mousie and I have been having a lovely Firefly marathon - we are up through Safe and continuing (I married a man who loves Firefly, Buffy, Farscape, and Futurama - clearly I picked wisely).

The scene of Simon jumping on the pyre the villagers are about to light under his sister because he cannot stop them and the only thing he can do is die with her, even if he himself would be in no danger otherwise and even if she doesn't even know what he is doing or what is happening, just so she won't be alone - that kills me, kills me, kills me.



It's official, on this rewatch Simon might be my favorite through his sheer selflessness. But I still adore Mal to bits and swoon for Mal/Inara. When he incoherently asks her not to take Atherton's offer to be his permanent companion...eeeee.

Mr. Mousie and I started rewatching Firefly. We watched the Serenity ep tonight. It's funny - I haven't seen the show in two years and some things are still the same: wanting Mal and Inara to make out yesterday, finding Jayne hilarious, and some are so different: I liked Wash before but adore him now, River does not annoy me the way she used to in the beginning the first time. But the biggest change is Simon. I grew to love Simon the first time I watched the show but at first I was indifferent - but now I am madly, protectively in love. In fact, I think he might be my favorite character, even over Mal. He is just such an innocent, so good and so tender with his sister. He is just so - I don't know what it is but I feel almost maternally protective.

It's also fun to watch in retrospect - all the connections that will be made.

Oh, and if I ever had any doubts that his threat of not treating Kaylee and letting her die if Mal wasn't going to help them escape was bluff, they would have been dispelled by his desperate run to the medbay when Mal lied to him Kaylee was dead.

I still love Mal as much as ever - dark, and weary, and trying not to care but caring too much. I love Kaylee - Mal's quasi-little-sister, sunny, and warm, and probably one of the sweetest TV characters ever (I am so glad she and Simon end up together - each is so selfless and warm they deserve someone to love them). I love Inara with her hidden meanings, and edges, and poise (also, yes, am still mad Mal/Inara shipper. The scene where he tells her to escape once the reavers come and she protests that they would be leaving him and he touches her shoulder...so ridiculously hot. Mal and Inara are already trapped in the zone of knowing but not acknowledging both their own feelings and the feelings of the other person - when she threatens to leave the ship if Mal ditches Simon and River, she is not speaking as a passenger to a landlord but as to someone who would be hurt by her leaving).

I love everyone.

Ahahahahaaaa. I was looking for something else but came across this instead.

It's Morena Baccarin (who played Inara) revealing that Inara's secret (which was hinted at during the show) is Cut for a spoiler that never happened )

To be fair, I always thought Mal himself was doomed. Doomed doomed doomed with a capital D. I was pretty sure that if the trilogy did materialize he would have bought it at the end of the last one.

Actually, my little Firefly re-binge made me think of *alas* Dollhouse and how in a way it's an extension of a particular idea in Firefly, even if Dollhouse is mediocre at best and morally repugnant and Firefly was neither. I think the idea of a dollhouse is a sort of extension of River's backstory. Think about it - a creepy corporation which takes people and messes with their minds turning them into whatever necessary. And a man obssessed with getting one of the women out.

EXCEPT. EXCEPT. In Firefly, that sub-story starts when Simon rescues River and they go on the run. The show never asks us to feel bad for people torturing River because *gasp* they might feel lonesome sometimes or occasionally crack a joke. It portrays that organization as soulessly evil and what they did to River unconscionable (not to mention it does not shirk from the fact that the effect of brain-messing damaged her almost irretrievably) -it's not all about the evil corporation, it's about people who escaped from it. Oh, and everything that Simon does for River is not creepy because he is her brother - he is fixated on rescuing her not because she is a fantasy of some sort, a woman he's never met or even seen, and who he is attracted to but because she is someone he grew up with, a sibling. Oh, and also the people in Firefly can be damn heroic and selfless and there isn't a single heroic individual on Dollhouse - they are either brain-washed manequins or evil whoremasters...

Oh God, I knew it.

I knew it.

Watched Serenity last night and now am busy rabidly reading Mal/Inara fic and plan to spend the evening rewatching the show.

Heh. Firefly is like Farscape for me: I can never have just a little bit, I always fall off the ledge.

Mr. Mousie and I had a scifi night tonight. First we (re)watched Serenity for the umpteenth time - God, how I love this movie! The only downside is that watching it makes me so blindingly angry that 15 eps and a movie is all we got and instead we got the patheticness of Dollhouse (Dollhouse renewed, even, when Firefly wasn't. UGH).

Every time I watch it, I also remember going to a midnight screening with a very enthusiastic audience. They reacted throughout but the thing that sticks in my memory the most is the whole theater literally gasping when Simon went down. I remember watching that movie for the first time and thinking Joss was going to kill them all. I know how Wash-lovers felt because at that point I thought if Joss killed Simon, I was going to burn my DVDs. :)

Anyway, the movie is just as awesome as ever, and I must do a rewatch of the show, it's been a couple of years. Interestingly, my favorite characters stayed the same - Mal, then Simon, then Kaylee, then Jayne, then Zoe, then Inara, then Wash, then Book, then River.

Anyhoo, since I posted ton of Mal/Inara stuff every other time I blabbed about Firefly/Serenity (I shipped the two so hard I even wrote fic) this time I bring you a Kaylee/Simon vid instead. The two of them are just such caring unselfish people I am glad they got a happy ending. Or a happy beginning hopefully, which is even better :)



And then we rewatched Galaxy Quest, one of my fave movies as well. Myself and [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake saw it in a theater with a geeky audience when it first came out and everyone (us included) laughed so hard I thought someone was going to rupture something.

ETA: I lied. I can't have a Firefly post without mentioning Mal/Inara. One of few fannish things I love more than a good ship is an 80s pop song. So a ship vid set to an 80s song? Score!
