One of the advantages of having Copious Free Time is that I get to trundle to an afternoon matinee showing of Serenity, thus getting to see it before anyone else. (Anyone else that's not a jammy git who wangled a ticket to the premiere, that is. You know who you are.)
I was ever so slightly disappointed with the film, though. It felt like they'd stuffed in enough plot for a whole season of Firefly, and as a result had to leave out a lot of the gags and wisecracking that made the original series so good. Plus, they also, er, narrowed the possibilites for future films or series.
