You are Wash. Not only are you a great pilot, you are also the joker of the group. Your devotion to your wife is admirable, though you sometimes feel insecure. Thank god you shaved off your moustache.

Something like that. We need to get Cross to take it, since it's the series that spawned Serenity. (If he turns out to be the Operative, I demand photos of his head melting.) :lol:

"[T]he conservative impulse and the reactionary impulse do not, with some isolated and some ecclesiastical exceptions, express themselves in ideas but only in action or in irritable mental gestures which seek to resemble ideas."

"My heart is filled with love for this country." -- Barack Obama, last words before the acknowledgements of The Audacity of Hope (2006)

"I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it."
-- John Stuart Mill, in a Parliamentary debate with Conservative MP John Pakington; May 31, 1866

"Conservatism today has degenerated into a species of especially unattractive populism, pandering to the pro-torture-and-wiretapping, anti-gay-and-Mexican prejudices of a dwindling, increasingly sectarian, increasingly regional 'base.' Some who sympathize with libertarian and free-market causes are cheered by the anti-government rhetoric and Tea Party theatrics now increasingly in evidence on the right. Perhaps, they think, the old Goldwater-Reagan conservatism is making a comeback. Sorry, but I seriously doubt it. On the contrary, I worry that good free-market ideas are going to get tainted by association with an increasingly brutish identity politics for angry white guys and the women who love them."
-- Brink Lindsey, "The Closing of the Conservative Mind" (Cato@Liberty blog post, May 19, 2009)

"The way things are going, we can shorten Trilling's quote: the 'irritable mental gestures' remain, but they scarcely even 'seek to resemble ideas.'"
-- Tom Hull, "Irritable Mental Gestures" (blog post, February 6, 2010)

"The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all."
-- G.K. Chesterton, The Man Who Was Thursday: a nightmare (1908)

"Just the other day a friend and I came up with the most pernicious academic scheme to date for toppling the West: he will kneel behind the West on all fours. I will push it backwards over him."
-- Michael Bérubé, "Public Image Ltd." (The Village Voice, 1991)

He's a character in the movie that follows the series. He does work for the Alliance (the evil gubmint :P) but the character is actually very complex. That's one of the things I've always appreciated about Joss Whedon's work - he's not afraid to give his characters deep and complicated, sometimes even contradictory, motivations.

It's very good, but it helps to watch the TV shows first.

What I don't appreciate is plot holes and goofs... :)

How come the Reaver ship did find them on that little moon where they engaged in some Western-ing when the big bad Alliance lost their tracks?

All systems go down, and they're about to run out of oxygen, but their artificial gravity generator or whatever still works A-OK.

And, oh, is Niska supposed to be Russian? :shock:

On a related note - -how come Reynolds and that Crow guy talk normally right next to the running jet engine?

Crazy people intuition.

Magnetic shoes.

No more than Mal is a Confederate American or the Tams are British.

It's not a jet engine, it's a space ship engine!

Hm, I finally took the quiz, and I scored as ... wait for it ... Shepherd Book, of all people. I was surprised myself (though my head hasn't exploded, yet). I guess I can kinda, sorta see it. I'm not upset or anything. I liked him and thought he was kind of cool, in a way.

As little faith as I have in this kind of quiz, that does make sense. I can totally see you as the Book of this fandom.

Well, I have now taken four different online versions of the "Which Firefly/Serenity Character Are You" quiz, each with different, or differently worded, questions. In three of the four I unambiguously scored Shepherd Book, usually about 88 to 90 percent Book, and various smaller percentages for the rest of the cast. Oddly enough I kept getting about 80 to 81 percent Zoe. In the fourth differently worded one it was basically a tie between Book and Zoe. I had to click on a tie-breaking answer, and got Book again. The tie breaking questions were (1) I like to carry a really big gun, and (2) I believe in a Higher Power. I admit it was not such an easy choice. (I think I rationalized my choice by thinking to myself, "Okay, I'll believe in a Higher power, and carry an ordinary size gun.)

Old thread, but I just took the test: I came up as closest to Mal... (I entered several variations on a few things and came up the same)

I never saw the show, but I actually like Nathan Fillion in "Castle"
