Starting Wed, Jul 1, I will be a guest on The Best Defense: Survival for 10 episodes.

I have a 2 minute segment on each show covering preparedness for various disasters. My subjects are food, water, communications and economic preparedness.

Okay, so that's 20 minutes of fame.

Tune into the Outdoor Channel and watch.

http://www.downrange.tv/bestdefense/

There's talk, for the third season, of possibly covering zombies or Reavers or similar menaces. Talk only, but I think it would make a great episode.

Unfortunately, I don't have cable, so I don't get to watch.

Just wonderin' Mike, is Inara's title of "Ambassador" on Serenity honourary, or is it official?

I completely missed that, so I have no idea.

My guess is honorary.

Why ask me?:)

Are you a fan?
My guess is that you're just using this site as advertizing. If that's the case, okay- I just wanted to make it clear.

I am a fan. I think the show rocks. I've also only seen it once so far---going through the bonus material now. Seen the movie twice.

I don't recall mention of her being an ambassador, unless it's the one where she bails Mal out by claiming he's her indentured servant.

Am I close?

Hey, in today's depressed economy, do what you can and play it fwiw. We'll either scroll on by, or not.

Hint: re-watch the pilot episode "Serenity". The relevant scene occurs during the first 1/3rd.

Many of us have watched the entire series multiple times. It's all a function of the geekdom.

Be well.

I haven't had time to watch it that often yet:)

And while I do promote everywhere, I suspect there's few enough people on this forum not to justify paid ads:)

I'll probably rewatch that this week.

I'm still betting on honorary.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this.

Oh no, the zombies killed god!

Definitely. Look mike, sorry we're being so rude, it's just that you just don't seem to know enough about firefly to be pushing this advertising on us. I would suggest posting this as a blog instead of on a discussion thread. That's how personal messages are sent around here.

See you at the training house!

Well, I don't stand to make a cent if you watch the show or not. I was paid for the consult, and that was it.

I don't have cable, so I won't be watching it. They're supposed to send me a DVD at some point.

However, I did suggest we cover zombies (since I belong to Zombiehunters.org as well), and Reavers would tie in well with that. After all, if you can beat them, you can beat anything. If we do another season, I just might.

This forum interface is different than any of the others I use, which, if you want to promote Firefly, I encourage.

www.iwoe.at
www.ZombieHunters.org
www.ArthursHall.com
www.TheHighRoad.us
http://bar.baen.com (I have a forum here. Do please bring Firefly discussion. I think my fans would be happy to help out, and a lot of them are in places where they could do so.)

So, I'll keep hacking around and figure out the finer points eventually.

PS: How much is "enough" knowledge before posting? Because I sort of came here looking for further info about the show.

You make a good point. I don't really know what to say. I never thought about that. Also, thank you for this. Again I apologize.

This is almost as insane as a Trek site when it comes to show knowledge- theses peeps are almost like family to us, forgive our severity in our geekness. I personally just noticed that Inara, in stating "I don't want to die at all" in "Out Of Gas" confirmed the idea that she joined Serenity knowing that she had a fatal illness.
The BDM (big damn movie) avoided this issue, for which I am grateful.

No harm no foul. I didn't mean to be OT, either. My previous screen credits were generally either as crew (usually armorer), or wearing a mask as Jack Booted Thug #1. I am a bit psyched:)

But, I do welcome Firefly discussion in my forum. Think of it as free Signal. It will probably be enthusiastically embraced, and I bet most of my fans are Jayne fans.

I did start a thread of RAH's Friday vs River Tam. It got PG13 in a hurry.

I'll be rewatching stuff soon.

FYI, I'm infamous for holding "I HATE TREK" panels. The kind of hate that can only come from having seen every episode 50 times.

For example...remember that episode where the Holodeck went on the fritz?

Is there something to support that? I took it just as a general comment.

Every second sig on this site is advertising something and you call out this particular Poster. This doesn't have anything to do with a certain discussion from RWED does it?
