Apparently, I run a lot faster and further whilst listening to soundtracks to war films/mini-series/docs...  :-[

Boo, couldn't have done roll call two days ago? I feel like such an outsider. ;)

It's ok, Melvil, we can have a party for ourselves.

This Joss Whedon guy is apparently highly praised, but from watching the complete series of "Firefly," I'm more inclined to see him as a nice guy with mediocre talent, who creates semi-ambitious projects and is lucky to find great actors to support his cult following.

Yea, "Firefly" is his worst. All his other stuff is varying degrees of good to pure awesomeness.

No, not really. All his other shows are tighter, wittier and tell smarter stories. I think people just fall in love with the characters and forget about the rest of the show.

I still like it a lot, it just clearly is his worst effort in my eyes.
