A public service announcement: Serenity, Joss Whedon's movie based on the unjustly short-lived TV show Firefly, will hit theaters one week from today. You don't need to have seen the show to understand the movie (but you should see it anyway, because it's fantastic). I'm hoping to see the movie at an advance screening on Monday. Here's the synopsis:
Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family –squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.
There. Now go see it, so we can maximize the odds of sequels and a possible resurrection of Firefly.

But, only if you insert the word "SLAYER" into the blurb.

Done. (I cut and pasted that blurb.)
