firefly was on j's christmas list last year. he unwrapped it excitedly, and from then on kept saying "we have to watch it together, you'll love it!". now i love a good geek out, don't get me wrong, but i have never really been into sci-fi and felt very dubious about it. also, j has played the "honestly, you'll love this film" or "no it's not that gory/violent!" line one too many times.
damn though, i was wrong.
maybe it's the fact that the characters aren't covered in prosthetics, maybe it's the humour, i don't know. but seriously, i have fallen in love with this show and now join the millions of people (including sheldon cooper!) in hating fox for cancelling it. i'm so gutted i've finished watching it, and am now trying to fill the little tv series hole in my life.
as i've been cooped up and ill over the last few days i've caught up with a lot of other shows- i finally started watching series 2 of new girl and girls, and j very sweetly bought me the jonathan creek box set too (major love for that show).
if you have any recommendations for other shows i need to see, please let me know :) any genre, i'm open to suggestions! though as mentioned above, gore/violence do not bode well with me- for example as much as i love dexter, i spend most of the time watching from behind a cushion!
