On year 2002, a little odd sci-fi show began showing on Fox… and as all worthy Fox shows, it got canceled. Sadly, I never saw this show when it was on the air because it was not showing in Peru in 2002, and when I got to Canada, it was already out of the air. I remember that when I returned to Lima, I saw a couple of commercials on tv, but never made anything out of it.

fireflyIt was not until my friend Nathan dragged me to the movies to watch Serenity… well, he didn’t drag me because I was more than willing to watch films, LOL’ – so when I watched the film, I was WOWed with it. And so… my friend lend me his pirated DVDs. HAHAHA. The DVD set was expensive back in the day, so I watched the whole show in less than a week and have been totally addicted to it. The same story can be told for a whole bunch of classmates, as the day arrived when the DVD set dropped in price thanks to a sale at HMV, and ALL of us went and bought it. Seriously, it’s like 6 of us went one day without knowing we did and bought the set. Like synchronized-buying.

The show is so unique that my sci-fi-fantasy-fiction-hating of a mother LOVED watching it. If you mention Lord of the Rings to my mother, she will tell you it’s well made… or Star Wars, she will tell you the story when she fell asleep during the film, a story similar to the one she will tell you when she watched Matrix. So my mother HATES this type of shows, but she LOVES Firefly – That’s how GOOD this show is… or was.

The show is set in the futuristic future (2517, to be exact), and we are screwed. LOL’ Earth is just the Earth that was, thus we were forced to search for somewhere else to live namely other planets and moons. Western culture has mashed up with Eastern culture, thus giving us great moments when our characters swear in unintelligible Chinese. Moreover, there is also The Alliance, which is very much like the Empire in Star Wars… and we have “the space cowboys”. The crew of our flying Firefly vessel, namely Serenity… including one of my favorite characters, Captain Mal Reynolds, ass-kicking 2nd in command Zoe, outrageous Wash the pilot, dense and gun lover Jayne, the sex-hungry mechanic Kaylee, love-daft Simon the doctor, crazy lunatic River mystery, and the sexy ‘companion’ Inara.

You’ll love the characters, you’ll love their bad moments, you’ll love their good moments. It’s not about the western, it’s not about the sci-fi, it’s about the people and their relations. I LUV it. I love the jokes, I love the mixing of Chinese and English… the gorram GORRAM! xD So you better WATCH it NOW, GORRAM it!

Just returned from watching The Incredible Hulk! Short review is that I enjoyed it a lot… maybe not as much as I did when watching Iron Man, even though I’m a fan of neither of them. LOL First things first, I did like Ang Lee’s version of The Hulk, and I thought Eric Bana was quite endearing on his Green Bana version. But I guess THAT’s not the point of Hulk, is it?

Okay, so it’s official. I am RASUTO FURENZing people one at a time… and now that the last episode is approaching, I’m telling you right now! I’m coming to get ya! When I read about the show, and the controversy, I knew I had to watch. I was in a pickle when I saw the first two episodes, when damn! I realized the show had just started showing, and I had to wait for the next episode… and I’ve been waiting for the last 8 episodes.

So… just listening to her new track. Actually, did anyone find her switch to country a surprise? LOL, I actually think that was something that always lingered on her.

Ok, just to be clear. I like country music, ok? I am probably one of the only ones who will tell people straight on… “hey, I listen to country music and it ain’t as bad as you make it sound.” Some of my favorite songs are country songs… maybe not the fast-driven ones, but I love me some country ballads.

How This Blog Works~

Just a little bit on how this blog works. I haven’t properly blog, about me or my work… other than the occasional rant, you could say this is a very subjective variety blog. The topics are usually varied, but I get fanatical from time to time… mainly because there’s no one to talk with…
