The littlest Jaylee fan...
Thursday, October 27, 2005

OMG, I swear, I had nothing to do with this. It wasn't my doing.

My nephews were over at my house and were mighty bored, they've been bugging me to see 'Serenity', but as they're 7 and 9 I've been telling them no. But I told them they could watch Firefly if they wanted. They agreed.

I started with the 'Train Job', 'cause I figure, it has trains, bar fights, big ugly men with tattoos getting kicked into turbine engines, what could go wrong?

Kyle, 9, loved the barfight. "This is a dirty fight! They're throwing dirt at each other! And kicking shins!". He also thinks that Inara is "a very beautiful lady".

Liam, 7, was much more enamoured with Kaylee. He thinks she's pretty.

They liked it, Kyle especially fell in love with Jayne and couldn't stop laughing at doped up Jayne "wha? I was aimin' for his head!". So I thought, maybe, Jaynestown, 'cause more drinking, fighting, a statue, etc...

Anyways, Liam, who in 'The Train Job' saw Kaylee bicker with Jayne, then run to him when he was shot and hover over him in the med bay, and then watched her tease him over the statue and sit next to him and joke with him at the bar... he got mighty confused when Jayne went upstairs with that other woman and Kaylee sat with Simon.

He was very upset. Awww.

Heee! My seven year old nephew is a Jaylee fan. (I'm so proud). I swear, again, it wasn't my doing.

Another amusing fact... Kyle, who had started up the chant of "Kill him! Kill him!" when Stitch and Jayne were fighting, was highly offended when the little boy handed Jayne back his knife and Jayne snatched it. "He shouldn't have snatched it, that was rude!". So, in the 9 yr old brain, killing is perfectly acceptible, but snatching is not.

Okay then.

Gosh you all have these cute stories. I am the youngest out of all my friends who watch it. Even though we aren't adorable, when the four of us gather around our mini TV it is pretty cool. (we are ages 14 to 18) None of us can sing but without fail we go along with the open sequence, and sing it verbatum.

Heh, another comment from the 7 year old during the Inara/Fess Higgins scene..

"Are we allowed to watch this? They're *naked* and in *bed*!"

Ok, kid story here...so I never ever watch Firefly when my 6 year old son is awake, as far as I know he knew nothing about it but seeing the DVD case on the shelf. But last Friday we were hanging around, eating popcorn and playing trivial pursuit, and I see that it's 7o'clock and I get a sudden overwhelming desire to see Firefly on TV. So I say to Max, Honey I'm gonna flip on the tv for a minute and watch Firefly. To which he responds, 'It's on channel 59'
Whaaaa? I look at him a minute, and say 'How do you know that, you don't watch anything on channel 59?' and he explains that 'Channel 59 is for science fiction. Firefly is science fiction.' I say, flumoxed, 'How do you even know that, you've never seen the show' He says that he has, and when I challenge him to tell me what it's about, he tells me quite a bit about it and then explains to me, 'I sit on the stairs and watch it, you don't see me' Oh, lord, he sneaks downstairs to watch it, and he must be freakin' quiet because I had no idea! I laughed and scolded, and then we sang the theme song, which apparently he knows all the words to. So weird.

lmao. Omg, the cuteness!

One of my friends has a little boy, all of 4, came marching down stairs in his little red underwear, put his hands on his hips and asked. "So are we gonna watch Fiya fye or what?"

Another friend of mine has a couple kids, 5 and 7 who sing the theme song. Such the cuteness!
