2 Guys, A Girl And A Theme Week

As I was cruising around the internet a while back, bored (as usual), I stumbled on one of those 'What Character Are You Most Like From This Movie Or Whatever' type quizzes. Like I said, I was bored, so I took it. Well, it turns out that, to no one's surprise, that I'm most like...well, see for yourself.

Your results:
You are Malcolm Reynolds (Captain)
Malcolm Reynolds (Captain)
Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command)
Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic)
Derrial Book (Shepherd)
Wash (Ship Pilot)
Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic)
River (Stowaway)
Inara Serra (Companion)
Jayne Cobb (Mercenary)
A Reaver (Cannibal)
Honest and a defender of the innocent.
You sometimes make mistakes in judgment
but you are generally good and
would protect your crew from harm.

I know, it's a silly little internet quiz. No big deal. But it gave me an idea. I mean, I like Nathan Fillion. I thought he was great in Firefly/Serenity as Captain Mal Reynolds. I liked him as Bill Pardy in Slither. Ok, I only barely remember him in Saving Private Ryan, but he was pretty awesome as Captain Hammer in Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog. I looked him up on Netflix, and he's done a handful of movies now...enough that I could do a week of them. And, let's be honest, it's been awhile since I did anything like that. So...Nathan Fillion Week at $7 Popcorn...I only had to decide when. Well, it turns out that he has a new show premiering on ABC on the 9th of March, that's perfect! I can have it coincide with that!

And that's how it was decided that I would do Nathan Fillion Week beginning tomorrow, March 9th. Ok, so, it's not that exciting of a setup. Sorry. It will be a fun week though!

You do realise, aside from being a protector-of-the-downtrodden, doing-the-right-thing kind of guy, Reynolds is also a damaged, cynical, violent kind of guy?! So what does THAT say about your good self? I did the same quiz a while back; came out as Zoe...I will support whole-heartedly your week-long celebration of all things Fillion.

Fantastic idea! I remember Nathan from freaking One Life to Live when I was a kid. So happy he turned into a real actor. Unfortunately I missed his new show on Monday, but I hope to catch it one of these days. I hope he has better luck on ABC than he did on Fox.

I took the quiz and I'm Simon. Doesn't THAT suck? I love Nathan and no matter how many bad movies he makes in order to pay the bills, I will always love him! Thanks for doing this!
