Sith and Stuff

So, I went to see Revenge of the Sith last night. It was not exactly good. The last hour was pretty good. The first hour to hour and a half was pure torture - somnolent dialog, bad cgi, music trying to force emotion where none existed. Really, it was painful. But the last hour was enjoyable. Well, save for a few lines. Darth Vader rising and screaming "Nooooooooo!" was just so over the top it actually made me snort. In fact, the most amusing thing about the whole movie was how it kept making puns and references. One of the wookies seriously did a Tarzan yell. One of the bad guys gets his arms cut off and another character says "He's been disarmed." I kid you not. Truly, this movie smacks of a Rocky Horror/MST3K sort of treatment.

But just before heading out to see Sith, I got word via the SF Browncoats list that the Sci-Fi channel had picked up the original episodes of Firefly to show preceeding the next season of Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG:1, and Stargate Atlantis. Ironically, where the original Friday night timeslot of death may have helped kill Firefly, I suspect it will really thrive on the most sought after night of television for sci-fi geeks around the country. One of the browncoats posted this graphic to hand out as a flyer at Sith, so I printed some copies and handed them out.
