Firefly, General, Science Fiction

Serenity last night

Went to the cinema, saw the film, loved it. For the uninitiated – watch all the Firefly episodes in the order on the DVD set, read the comics, go to Serenity. (Repeat)

So much for it being a relatively unknown film. It sold out the Megascreen at the Village on Queen (400+ seats) and we had to queue for ages to get in (some tickets were up for sale on TradeMe too). I can’t remember the last time I queued to get into a film. The clientele looked decidedly geeky (so we fitted right in, though we didn’t go as far as wearing suits and blue gloves like some!). Felt like I was back in a computer science department with some of my old colleagues. A good night out.
