On a Fan Girl scale of 1-10 with 10 being extreme obsession this was a: 6.5

I watched Serenity again for the first time in a while recently. I said to myself it’s late but I’ll just watch the first couple of minutes but it’s Serenity, you can’t stop at a couple of minutes. Then I realized this month it’s been ten years since Serenity opened! Ten years! Where did that time go?

The funny thing is when I went to see the movie with my friend I had never seen Firefly but she couldn’t find anyone else to go with her (they hadn’t seen Firefly either) and I figured I owed her one and she could explain it all to me.

Turned out I absolutely loved the movie even then. I loved the characters. I think it’s possible you can like every character on Serenity.
