The Man They Call Jayne

I love me some Firefly (and I’m not the only one – check out what Scene-Stealers JD has to say), and despite alphamonkey’s less than glowing opinion of Whedon’s short lived sci-fi western, it remains a staple of my DVD collection.  So as a celebration of all things Whedon, and for the sheer enjoyment of making teh monkey groan, here’s a clip from ”Jaynestown,” as the crew lands on a planet that inexplicably celebrates Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) as a hero.  Shiny.

And if you need more Firefly goodness you can also check out reviews for Whedon’s film version Serenity over here and here, and a look at the DVD too.

    Oh man, I never cared for Buffy or Angel either, but I don’t know how anyone could not love Firefly.  I feel betrayed, monkey man.

    Great clip choice, though it falls a little flat if you don’t know the Jayne character.  Was a great moment to come out of nowhere.

    I can safely say that, after watching the entirety of Firefly, Buffy, and Angel, I gave Whedon a fair shot. Ain’t my fault he never scored a win with me.  Hell, Angel only gets good when Whedon isn’t actively working on it (and then he fucked it all up when he came back).

    I stand by my Firefly review on the grounds that I can’t reward something that might have grown into something good, and Whedon’s less-than-stellar ensemble writing just never gets any better.

    True, if you don’t understand the context of the clip it may seem odd, kinda’ like the whole series to some, but it’s a great moment of the show complete with two great lines along with the jaunty tune.
