Firefly Still Stings

I still love the show Firefly. I haven’t watched it in a while, so maybe it really shows it’s age, but it was a great show and it’s early cancellation still stings. It also hearts when Honest Trailers mocks the show!

Oh, my beloved Firefly…you don’t deserve any of that. But I can’t say that Honest Trailers wasn’t honest. Life is harsh.

Meanwhile, in case you’re looking for new YouTube to blindly watch, I stumbled upon one of those “reaction” YouTubers a couple weeks ago. There’s a million of them, but I like the charm of this Natalie Gold person I found. And she recently started a “First Time Watching” marathon of Firefly episodes.

She’s got a bunch of other videos, watching movies and shows for the first time. She’s only a couple months into her new career as a YouTube reactor. So again, if you’re looking for something new to watch on YouTube, Natalie Gold is mildly recommended.

Right in the Heartstrings

Want to see 40 seconds that will jab you right in the feels? How about this awesome Firefly animated teaser!

Oh man, that’s a gut punch. That’s a…that’s a whallop. Professional animator Stephen Byrne put this together, and if any of us wins the lottery, we need to hire him to make this a reality. Simple as that. Whoo boy.

6 TV Shows I Want to See Revived

The new X-Files revival kicked off this past weekend to mild reviews, and the two episodes were OK. The Heroes revival has come and gone, and won’t be getting a second season. Fuller House continues to loom on the horizon, an implied threat to everything we hold dear. Suffice to say, revivals of recent, popular TV shows with all or some of their original casts are all the rage these days.

What old, memorable shows would I like to see revived?

Strap in, friends

I love TV. I’ve been watching it since I was a little boy. I devoured all the glorious 1980s cartoons/glorified toy commercials, I watched TGIF with my family every Friday night, I grew up on the Golden Age of The Simpsons, and I graduated to smarter, better fare in college. I avoided reality TV like the plague, and now I’m enjoying all the great prestige TV that has erupted this decade.

But there are definitely shows out there I’d love to see come back. Join me after the jump for my ideas!

My 6 Favorite Spaceships

We may never have flying cars or commercial jetpacks in my lifetime, but I think it’s entirely possible that I’ll be able to travel by spaceship someday. I’m still a young man. Surely someone somewhere is working on easy, affordable and convenient space flight. But until that day comes, we’re just going to have to make due with all the awesome spaceships on TV or in movies. Who hasn’t imagined themselves at the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon? Maybe even ┬ásome of you would like to pilot the Death Star. I don’t judge.

I can definitely see the appeal

But for me personally, there are a few pop culture spaceships that will always be near and dear to my heart. Whether they looked really inviting on TV or are just plain cool, here are my six favorite fictional spaceships of all time.
