Howdy, Browncoats! Just sayin'.

(I'm Texan. The idea of space cowboys kinda suits me.)

Labmate texted me the other day to say, "Hey, that shirt with the dinosaurs on it, what is the stegasaurus saying?"

*sigh* Labmate, if you were a Browncoat, you wouldn't have to ask.

Gotta love Wash and those Dinos.

I suggest lending your lab mate the box set. ;)

That bird is the word.

I liked the article/blog entry, but I'm not sure how much I agree with the take on the isms. -- Because Firefly has its own irksome isms, as part of what makes people in the Verse so ornery and low-down mean sometimes...or noble and fine, others. One of the things about the Verse is that it's designed to give us room to have not-so-nice people and things in it, and to allow the writers to comment without preaching at us.
 
I agree though, that any of today's problem isms don't exist there, or they've changed into something else.

That not so neat and tidy quality appeals to me.

I agree, it definately has its own isms, but the major ones are mostly gone.

Can't you all just imagine Joss Whedon doing the Mercy series?  I can so picture him liking Mercy and the gang.  *sigh*

Do we have any lovable characters get skewered in the Mercyverse?  Isn't that a Joss Whedon rule? 
*thinks really hard*
I can only think of bad guys who get skewered. 
Maybe we could make Mac count?  I mean, he died from injections, so we could make an argument for that counting as a stabbing...  Or maybe one of the Primals gets skewered on a River Monster tooth... Or, I don't even really remember how Walter died.
