I Watch TV AGAIN!

It's amazing how much of a pop-culture idiot you can become after not watching TV for 8 months straight.

My impression of me a few months ago "Coldplay who?" Hahaha....god I'm pathetic.

But NO MORE as I was forced to watch a DVD of LOST and am now addicted. Even addicted enough to leave my office BEFORE 7:30 pm so I can get home in time to watch it...granted I only get paid until 5 p.m....but this noble non-profit life is taking a heck of a lot out of me!

Any other LOST folk here? Huh? Huh? Look at me asking about pop culture from the last 10 years!

Joss Whedon is my master now.

I don't even know where to begin.  If you can, borrow the TV series DVDs from someone and start watching.

It's got coybows, and train-robberies, and horses, and space-ships, and laser battles, and evil governements with secret experiments, and outlaws, and canibal tribes, and and and and and . . .

And very well developed characters.

Oh, Christ! Did it die? I can't believe it died.

Now, I feel uncomfortable having brought it up.

Wow, do I feel like the grandfather at the beginning of Princess Bride. "Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...."

And cute people. Lauren, you forgot the cute people! Nathan Fillion in suspenders!

Really, though, it's an excellent mix of action and humor and true emotion and religion and real people and good guys and bad guys. In space.

If you can get your hands on the DVD set *cough library cough* the best place to start is the pilot episode. If after those two hours you're not hooked, then, well, your DVD player must be broken. Fox didn't show the pilot episode until after the series had been canceled, so that proves they are stinky poopyheads.

"Ew mushy stuff!"

Now everyone has told me the space/cowboy thing but NOONE mentioned suspenders to me yet! I'm sold! Good thing I just found out the BPL let's you take out up to 100 books at a time!

I've heard tell from my straight female friends, and my gay male friends that Mr. Fillion is the bomb.  I do, however, have a special place in my special place for Jewel Staite.

Mmmm.  Kaylee.

I love Kaylee too, and I find Inara amazingly beautiful. And I'm straight.

True, but what about Zoe?  To quote Wash:
Have you ever made it with a warrior woman?

Kaylee can change my oil any day of the week. If you know what I mean.

No, seriously, I need an oil change. It's been 4k miles since my last one, so I'm due.

Lauren: It's fun to watch Zoe interact with other folks, but I would seriously be intimidated by her myself. My favorite character is Captain Mal, followed closely by Kaylee. That's why my favorite episode is "Shindig": it is their episode.

Gwangi: I doubt Kaylee knows about ancient automobiles. She's a genius mechanic, yes, but that doesn't mean she could change your oil.

Colleen: Hurry up and watch the show so you know what we're talking about!!!
