DVD Days: RvB and/or Firefly

Well, as the Battlestar Galactica and Pitch Black DVD Day suggestions didnít go down well due to the lack of interest in/aversion to the subject matter, Iím having another shot Ė this time with some stuff that Iím pretty sure will keep peopleís interest!

First off: Red Versus Blue. You know it. You love it. I have the Official DVDs of both Seasons 1 and 2, and want to organise a double-bill. Thatís right; approximately two-and-a-half-hours of the worst soldiers this side of Gomer Pyle, back-to-back, plus Public Service Announcements, Out-Takes and Other Goodies!

Secondly: Iíve had a few people asking when they can borrow my copy of Firefly: The Complete Series. Well, take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand, but you canít take my Firefly from me Ė at least, not for the length of time I know itíll take you slackers to watch the entire thing, then get it back to me so the next guy can borrow it (okay, you probably wonít be as bad as Bootsí mate Seb, but still). Instead, you can all come over and watch it at once! So there!

I know at least three of you on this list have seen the pilot episode and are as hooked as Vickie, Gav and I are (Gav was first, and returned the favour for me hipping him to Babylon 5), so if anyone else wants to see the pilot episode, Serenity, I can organise something, then everyone can get stuck into the series, starting with The Train Job. As there are twelve forty-minute episodes, I imagine this will require multiple get-togethers, which, considering Vickie and I donít see you mad lot half as much as weíd like, can only be a good thing, eh? (Joining in on the chorus of "The Man They Call Jayne" is optional but recommended!)

Okay, so I'm really trying to organise a conversion party. So what?

So: How does Saturday, the 16th of October sound as a date, and whatís the vote: RvB or Firefly?

UPDATE 14 October: As things have been a little all over the place lately, Vickie and I decided to keep the weekend of the 16th for ourselves. So we've postponed the DVD Day to the 23rd, and as Steve Darlington of Places To Go, People To Be, RPGnet forum and There Is No Spoon fame is going to be in town, it's most likely going to be more Firefly than Red Vs. Blue.

I can do RvB anytime on 23rd Oct...
16th & 30th I'll make it if it's after 7.30pm.
