Now that I'm sitting here trying to describe it in print, I realize unfortunately that I can't type out the sounds that I make when I'm trying to describe it in person. I'll try to do it this way:
You know how you felt after having seen the season on television and then seeing the pilot, which you knew was going to be the last episode? How completely and totally supremely satisfying those 2 hours of televisiony goodness were? How you were breathless after they escaped the Reavers at the end, how you had taken notes of all the everything that had made it so perfect: Wash and his dinosaurs, Jayne doing the math ("nothing from nothing... carry the nothing"), delerious Kaylee, River in the box, Simon's monologue (not to mention getting punched TWICE), the way Book beat the hell out of the Larry the Law-Man and Mal's single shot to his head? How you bled on the inside because you knew they were going to cancel the only good thing on television and even though you'd signed all the petitions and blasted on all the websites and turned all of your friends to the Brownside where was nothing you could do but wait for the DVDs to come out and read fanfic to take the edge off of your cravings?
Maybe you don't. But if you do, take that and multiply it by infinity and take it to the power of eternity and you'll have one bazillionth of an idea of how I feel right now.
It was just so GOOD. The first half hour is riddled with hilariousness and the rest of it follows, only adds action and drama and special effects up the wazoo. If it were possible for me to see it again all day today and tomorrow and Sunday and then twice a day for the next two weeks, I would not be here updating my livejournal. And I'll probably spend my whole month's worth of pay on movie tickets when it does come out in September because it's completely worth it.
"We've done the impossible. That makes us mighty."
Joss says that before the movie starts during his shpiel about how this is all because of the fans. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who finished the phrase or got chills when he said it. And it's true.
