I've also got to the second episode of Firefly, and I'm starting to enjoy it, a lot more than the movie. Early days yet though and I'll see what it's like by the fourth episode. Ordinarily I won't watch a TV series that uses country and western in its theme music, but I'll give Firefly a break.
In other news, we had a huge thunderstorm here last night around 11pm. I decided this time it was better to turn off all the electrics, although in theory I should have unplugged as well despite some of the protection we have here. Lu's Aunt's house was recently struck by lightning, and it killed her computer, telephone, and electric garage door.
