Title: Pretty cunning, huh?

Knitted for me by a good friend, and given this weekend.  Wish I could give her the credit she deserves, but that would be telling.  Needless to say, though, she's a fan of a certain long-canceled TV show....

It's a beautiful hat, but your eyes have a certain vacant look......

And I'm coming up blank on the cultural reference. ?

Does anyone notice that the hat matches the color of the hair above his lip?

The sunglasses remind me of what's his name-- Levar Burton's character on Star Trek

Geordi LaForge

I think those things double as a game console, and I have to wonder how many hours he sits at his post watching porn
unbeknownst to the rest of the crew.

He was the host of Reading Rainbow, a show I watched as a toddler.

I love it. Jayne was my hero, though. He was like the lost psycho wolf that finally found a home.  :laugh:

Yes, it was from Reading Rainbow that I chiefly remember him-- I never watched ST very much-- didn't care for it. I just thought it was cool that Levar was on both shows when I was a kid.

Ahem ... Linda .... That is NOT a Nice Hat.    It is a CUNNING Hat ....

Which is a direct line from the Firefly series and is from where the title for the thread came.

Cunning is such a Macho word don't you know  :rolleyes:  :laugh:  ... and Jayne [played by Adam Baldwin] is nothing if not Macho.
[Jayne is one of the male characters in the Firefly series.]
It and the movie Serenity are both very highly recommended.

Serenity (http://serenitymovie.com/main_site.html) and FireFly (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0303461/)

and then there is the Serenity Movie fan forum HERE (http://fireflydvd.com/phpBB2/) .

Excellent entertainment and "pithy" to say the least.

ENJOY

You're my hero Cap'n. I've been looking for that series online for over a year and never saw this site.
You totally rock!

The series came first, so logically...

Yes. Also (I don't want to start a foo-raw here, but ...) the movie is just a standard, and derivitive, space opera. Ho hum. The poor, murdered TV series was ... a work of sublime genius.

Besides, the series establishes (beautifully!) the characters and their relationships. The movie ... well, all it does is (mild spoiler) kill some of them off.

Series first. The movie wraps up all the loose ends of the series. There is even a comic book available that fills in some more of the story that happens between the series and movie. If you watch the movie first, you will regret it. The tale needs to be told in order.

Not religious about it, but if I am surfing and it is on, I will watch it.

Mine's Dr. Jackson.

The most entertaining character for me is COL O'Neill. He is so burned out and jaded, his insubordination is just satisfying at a gut level. If he is not in the episodes, I just stare at CPT Carter's ass, after I have properly admired her intellect and her unfailing, competent, military prowess, of course. :)

Daniel's wife has superior shape to Samantha. Exponentially.
