So, um, here's the thing about Serenity
. There are some things in the trailer that have caught my eye and make me wonder what Joss is doing plot-wise. There are also some things not in the trailer that make caught me by their lack of presence. But the thing is, I don't want to discuss it. I don't want to sit and speculate and come up with ideas about what we could find out and what we will find out, etc. etc. In other words, I guess you could say I want to avoid any sort of spoiler so much, that I will go so far as to not think about the movie too hard. I want to go to the theater and be swept up and surprised. I want to get the experience out of Joss and the movie that I used to get out of Joss weekly. That pleasant buzzing along where you just love the characters because you know them and then the abrupt slamming into the wall when you realize that, no, you really didn't know them that well at all. It's like being punched in the stomach.
Few shows have ever pulled me around like Joss's shows have. Farscape
could have, if I hadn't been such a spoiler-whore. Stargate Atlantis
yanks me around emotionally a lot. (Would have done so more this last season if I hadn't seen all the episodes but the "omgwe'regonnadie!" ones. Kinda ruins the fear of loss if you've already seen that they survive.) Nip/Tuck
affects me in a different way, but still yanks me around emotionally. Probably affects me differently because there are no actual vampires and demons and aliens and things.
Anyway. I don't want to over-speculate Serenity
. I don't want to over-discuss. I don't mind freaking out over the trailer and maybe photos and interviews and things, because I can guarantee some major freaking out on my part. But don't talk to me about what you think is going to happen. I don't want to know. But the sharing of the love is good.
Although I'm starting to not want to share my fandoms again. Or, rather, not share them with certain people. I am a bad, selfish person.
News is, it'll be released September. trademybike
, we absolutely have to try to see it together at some point.
Also, I am allowed to take back anything I've written. I may completely change my mind about all of this in the morning. ;)
