Merry Kaylee Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!
And just a reminder that Jewel Staite was in the Christmas movie, "Call Me Mrs. Miracle".

Fairly typical schmaltzy Christmas fare, but a huge cut above in acting quality,
and a step up in writing, also; I felt.
Jewel is marvelous in this movie, and Doris Roberts is also excellent as the angel, Mrs. Miracle.
Eric Johnson is good as the male lead and all the supporting cast fill in their parts well,
especially Lauren Holly's over-the-top performance of over-the-top designer, Lindy Lowe.

I can't promise everyone will like it, but it is a regular Christmas tradition in our house, now.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and Ba! Humbug! :mrgreen:

I never watched that movie, or most Christmas movies. I prefer A Christmas Carol.

My favorite Christmas movie is Scrooge starring Albert Finney. It is a great movie, if you don't mind a musical.

My husband got Grand Budapest Hotel for Christmas. He and I saw it in the theatres when it was released but his sister beat me to the punch when it came time to purchase the DVD. It's funny and whimsical and Ralph Fiennes is simply marvelous. I suspect that it will be a favorite in our house.

Happy Crimbo, you lot. Also, watch the Doctor Who Christmas special. I quite enjoyed it for its many references to its excellent source material.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Marry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc. to you all. :)

If the show had been on the air long enough, I wonder if Christmas would have made it to the verse. If parents have a hard time explaining to their kids how Santa gets to all the houses on earth (that celebrate Christmas) in one night, I would like to see them explain how he gets all over the verse in a night. Then again, Days may be different lengths on each of the worlds, and what day the celebrate on may very, but I don't think that would help explain Santa much. Those as I type these worlds, I can't help but think of a firefly Christmas special. Kind of like the Doctor Who Christmas specials. A stand alone episode of firefly, set in the verse, around the Holidays. Maybe Mal and the gang (aged by about a decade now) have to smuggle gifts onto a core planet under the Alliances nose, or something like that. Yeah, the Alliance was in deep doo doo, at the end of TBDM but it's 10 years later, so they are likely to have recovered to some degree, and Mal and his crew, are likely to have gotten themselves back in trouble.

I have said for a long time now, that too much time has past for the cast to come back, and restarted the series, but I would be fine with a cutesy Holiday special. (Hey, anything, and I do mean anything, would be better then t he 1979 star wars holiday special.)

Firefly the Animated Series. The actors would only have to record their voices, and not all of them at the same time. It worked for Star Trek.

Jason, I like the Star Wars Holiday Special, you Dark Sider.Image

Oh, you were the one person in the world that liked the star wars special, well they say "there is always one". I know quite a few SW fans that have a copy, but mostly to m ake fun of it. Bad story, bad filming, bad acting, bad costumes, virtual reality, interspecies, musical, porn, awful guest stars. (come on, the worlds B Arthur, Art Carny, and Star Wars, should never be in the same sentence) They even gave Luke a different, far less cool, lightsaber, hilt. (it was a Grafex, but not the cool model they used for his ANH, and ESB versions) But, as bad as it was, I would still take a firefly special that bad, if it meant getting the cast back together. Though I would rather have a good one. And I would love an animated one., for all the reasons you listed, and more.

River could tell them all what they are getting before they open the presents. Jayne gets grenades. Kaylee gets batteries (cause she is bord with Simon) etc.

Oh, Oh, they could all get invited to Ma Cobs house for a holiday. :)

That's the spirit!

How about the Boba Fett cartoon in the Holiday Special? That was the best part of the Special.
