Now I put this post on the Paw, but it is worth repeating.

Went to the movies last Saturday and saw Joss Whedon's Serenity. As a fan of the original Firefly series, there is no way I couldn't like this movie. The thing is, this is a great film just on its own merits. Even those not into scifi flicks can probably find something of value in Serenity.

Anyway this isn't nearly as exciting as the BABY announcement, but I feel I should do my part in spreading the good word about Serenity. So check out the trailer, see what other people are saying, and go see the flick. You won't be disappointed.
