You can’t take the sky from me

“When you’re making a movie, you gotta amp it up, you gotta go to a greater scale and everything is gonna be a little grander, you hero is gonna be more ‘heroicaler’…. yes that’s a word….. now….”

Because Joss Whedon is such a brilliant – Brilliant! – script writer and director, I will forgive him this grammatical lapse.

I have only truly loved a very few television shows: Northern Exposure, Sports Night, West Wing, and Joss’ Firefly.

I can’t tell you how much I was emotionally destroyed by Serenity, the movie finale to the prematurely cancelled Firefly. It takes a special, insightful and charismatic writer to pull you in so deeply to what is, basically, a work of entertainment fiction.

And now he writes comic books – old style.
