turq, thanks for suggestion re my latest crushee Nathan Fillion who of course is young enough to be my son!. Speaking of mothers and sons, I really enjoyed Joss on his mom and equality now. My favorite answer was, to paraphrase: why aren't you asking the other writers why they're NOT creating strong women characters?!

Now I definitely have to see Serenity. OK, you got me. :-) Nathan is a mensch. He is reputedly one of the nicest guys on planet Earth. And one of the funniest; that's why he and Joss Whedon got along so well. By all means, follow up on Nathan Fillion. If you want my advice, watch "Firefly" first. He just *rocks* in that series as Captain Tightpants. One of the great hero figures of cinematic history, and largely because he can be FUNNY in the face of danger. *Then* watch "Serenity." It was the followup full-length movie to close out the "Firefly" story. If you watch either of these on DVD, be certain to watch the gag reels, the outtakes. THAT is where you get to see how great a guy Nathan Fillion is. If you *really* get hooked, you have to watch "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." This is a three-episode series that Joss Whedon did for FUN while a strike was going on and he couldn't work on his other projects. He paid for it all himself, and most of the actors did it out of their love for Joss, not for a paycheck, and then he released it on the Internet. Nathan plays Captain Hammer, the most narcissistic superhero every invented.
