She loved it!
Additionally, I can say, with great pride, that she laughed most heartily at Jayne (see below) and his antics. She also thinks Kaylee (see above) is adorable. These are my exact sentiments so it is with great bias that I say that she has fantastic taste.
She asked if the creator of Firefly has “done anything else.”
Me -“Uh, yeah mom. Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
Mom - “Oh! That show you always talk about? That’s the same guy?”
Me - “Yeah, mom. It’s Joss-freakin-Whedon.”
Mom - “Huh! Maybe I should give that show a try too.”
Me - (reaction below)
I never thought I would ever hear those words come out of her mouth…
I will make a Whedonite out of her yet!
Today, my mother asked me if we could, somehow at some time, watch Joss Whedon’s Sci-Fi masterpiece television series, Firefly.
Beautiful woman who gave me life? Of course we can.
Then I ran to my room, like a madman, to dig through my movies and find my copy of the blu-ray edition of the series. When I came back my mom was all, like:
Mother- “Oh, well, geez. Not NOW, David. Right now I’m watching Love’s Enduring Promise on the Hallmark Channel.
I meant later. Much later.”
Me - Oh. Okay….
Truth be told, the x-factor for my mother was her love of Nathan Fillion. She’s a big Castle fan and once told me that she wanted to see him in more stuff. That’s fine. No problem. I can wait. You know what…
