xD I forgot about the River Tam sessions.

(and I have to say, I secretly wish I could kick asparagus like River)

Oh man, those things freaked me out. I forgot about them before you guys mentioned them. And now I'm freaked out again.

Watched them all and Serenity last year. Then I got my boyfriend into it and rewatched it all with him.

The best.

Also, the other day I was walking through Safeway and saw a man with blue latex gloves on. It freaked me out.

Along these lines, I was at work last week and overheard my boss say something about a post holer. My brain immediately went, "Post holer. Digs holes for posts."

I occasionally quote Firefly/Serenity, mostly River xD

(that confuses people because out of my friends I'm the only Browncoat!)

I love Firefly and Serenity. Thanks to them, I have met some wonderful Browncoats and made some very close friends.
I miss it! Getting ready to do another rewatch of it once I finish off Angel.

I'm allergic to the synthetic white gloves we usually use at work, so I have to wear those blue nitrile gloves. It always makes me think of Firefly (and freaks me out and makes me think I'm some scary Alliance doctor).

I spent the entirety of the rest of Angel hoping for a reappearance. So many people come back from being magicked or dead or supposedly dead in Joss Whedon series that I just kept believing... and being disappointed.

I couldn't bear it. I had to look it up. I usually don't like spoilers but...I had to know so I could grieve properly.

That actor died shortly after leaving the show, so it wouldn't have happened anyway. It's actually a good thing that Doyle got an ending, because otherwise, he would have just disappeared.

ETA: well, I guess it was a couple years later

I'm going through this right now. It happened last week for me and was really upsetting. I dont understand why they killed off Doyle. makes no sense! and then when I looked it up and found out he was Mark from roseanne and dead, whew.

Doyle's death made sense to me. I hate hate hated it at the time, though. I think it would completely cheapen such a selfless act if he came back because of magic. The same could be said for Buffy, but she's the main character so that would be awkward.

Every single time that episode comes on I cry like a baby.

Also...y'all completely made me forget this was the Firefly thread.

Back on topic, people! Haha.

I just watched all of the River Tam Sessions. I had never seen them before, so thank you for the linkey-poos.
Those were a touch disturbing. I felt guilty watching her slip away into madness. Poor River.

I found it pretty distubing too and it made me really uncomfortable to see her when she was happy and before it all got messed up. Poor River. I read somewhere that the guy interviewing her in the River Tam Sessions is actually Joss, which is cool.

Also, I never made the connection between the blue gloves we use in work and Firefly. Now work will be more fun.

Oh man, I never made that connection either and I wore the blue gloves everyday when I used to work in vegetation management (latex could react with some of the chemicals we used to we had to have the nitriles)

I could tell it was Joss right away. I know that lisp anywhere.
