This post in dedicated to Brother Wings who has recently discovered the joy that is 'Firefly'. He was like I was last year. I had no idea how great this show was even after being told the same from everyone else. I took a chance. It was only 14 episodes, how could it hurt?
There comes a point in everyone's 'Firefly' experience where they go from liking the show to LOVING it. The characters and situations mesh so perfectly and you care how this awesome ragtag crew will get out of the latest fix they have found themselves in or created for themselves. You will fall in love with their ship (which is a separate character on it's own that I still think looks like a horsey wearing a saddle).
If you haven't watched it or turn your nose up at it then how can you in good conscious call yourself a geek. This is as important a touchstone as 'Star Wars' or 'Star Trek'.
Don't be like this girl and lose the love of a good man.
This Flintstones was one of my favorite cartoons growing up and it still is. In college I had a friend whose parents ran a chicken shack so there was always leftover chicken the next day for us all to snarf down. Nothing better than chicken and Flintstones.
The following episode was my all time favorite. Fred and Barney take the girls to the woods to hunt the Snorkasaurus who turns out to be Dino who actually talks for this one episode. I love Dinos voice and the snarky way he calls Fred and Barney 'poachers'.
