Well personally I don't find River sexy but yeah, the characters. They really are something.

Character I'd most like in my bunk is Simon. Character I'd most like to hang out with is Wash. Character I'd most like to be like is Zoe. I could soooo see myself having a girls night out with Kaylee, Inara, Zoe and River.

River fascinates me, always has. Joss has had his fair share of crazy characters over the year, but River is pure perfection. Absolutely brilliant.

Yep, I'm a woman. A straight woman, to clarify further. Although personally I don't think guys fancying Simon are anything to worry about - as long as Simon chooses me

Yeah, that's why I'm starting to write my own!

It's very easy to confuse a person's gender and/or sexual orientation when everyone uses posting names. This is why Internet Dating is such an incredibly tactful affair...

Thats for sure.

I think nighttime is dark so you can imagine your fears with less distraction.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Absolutely!! I love Zoe. And Wash. And River. And Simon.
I love the rest of the characters, too, but those four are the ones I'm a groupie for.
And to clarify, since we seem to be doing that, I'm a bi chick.

Yes, I love River. She would make a beautiful daughter but then I already have 2 so I shouldn't be greedy. Summer Glau brought something extraordinary to that part.

There is a parallel from the early days of silent films.

Louise Brooks was a dancer (Follies, not ballet though) who moved into acting and in Pandora's Box also brought something extraordinary to the screen.

Perhaps it is the grace of a dancer, or perhaps because they are not actors first and so just put lay themselves bare on the screen - I dont' know because I have never wanted to act. All I know is this ain't just a movie/TV series - it is so much more and River was an important part of that. And Pandora's Box was not 'just' a silent German film about the rise and fall of someone's mistress, and that was largely down to Louise Brooks.

I agree with DBERRIFF, it is much more than a JUST a tv show. It's something deeper, it draws you in and keeps you there. Once you're in Serenity, you can never leave.

Mal is my favorite character though, he's someone I could see myself slipping off to their room in the middle of the night lol. And I really like Shepherd Book's character. Zoe and Wash are my favorite couple.

Yup, I love River Tam. I love all out BDH's, but River especially. Cuz, y'know, look at her. Look at the way she moves. Listen to how she speaks. Watch how she fights. Try not to cry when she sheds a tear. Try not to feel the urge to hug her and protect her when she's scared. Plus she's damn sexy! Yup, all good my friends

River is probably my favorite character too. Just because of her weirdness and the way that her character really isn't like any that you'd see anywhere else! If I was gonna beat someone up, I would hope I would be able to do it like her.

---------
Love keeps her in the air when she outta fall down, tells you she's hurting before she keels. Makes her a home.

River's my favorite character too. I first came to Firefly through the movie and I loved River. The mix of fragility and strength, of pain and innocence, to which one has to add Summer's incredible acting ability, completely sold this character to me. And it didn't hurt that she kicked major ass with the grace of a dancer. Seeing the series only made me feel for this character even more, because one can't just NOT want to hug her and cry with her when she's hurting. That's the beauty of her character, and of Summer's acting.

I agree as well that River is my favourite character although all the others have a lot to like about all of them. She has that something that you can't really describe. You WANT to love her, hug her, protect her, tell her everything will be alright.

Then there's Summers acting. Really beleivable and kind of tender. Definitely graceful.

A point I would like to make, and this requires drawing a parallel to Willow/Aly Hannigan in BTVS, is that one of the main things that made the character my favourite is not what she does when she's the centre of attention - it's what she does in the background when another character is speaking or doing something.

For example:
In BTVS when Xander is explaining why he thinks he has a special connection to Faith, Willow is the first one to get it and looks down, all sad and everything, as the others then catch on. Lots of times you can see her looking at things going on around her, or having her face react in some small way to what someone is saying.

River/Summer is the same. When she is seen smelling Inara's bed. When the baby is about to be delivered, and the actual delivery, in Heart Of Gold. Her reaction in the background when they find the ship in Bushwacked before she says 'Ghosts'.

There are many more but I hope this illustrates the point. As a side note Steve McQueen used to do this a lot in The Magnificent Seven and it really used to piss Yul Brynner off (according to the commentary)!!
