My friends have great taste

Now, by the title, not only do I mean that they have great taste in picking me as their friend.... ;-) but I also mean that they have great taste in television.  Karis especially has amazing taste in television.  In the last couple weeks we have been watching a bunch of shows that she really likes and.... I LIKE THEM TOO!!!!  

Here are the two that we've watched and their descriptions:


 ""The show revolves around a corporation running numerous underground establishments (known as "Dollhouses") across the globe which program individuals referred to as Actives (or Dolls) with temporary personalities and skills. Wealthy clients hire Actives from Dollhouses at great expense for various purposes. The series primarily follows the Active known as Echo, played by Eliza Dushku, on her journey towards self-awareness.""   (from Wikipedia)

*** Ok so...  this show was so good, when it ended, I was literally sobbing. No, I am not exaggerating. Not at all.


 ""The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things". The show explores the lives of some people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In addition, it is a future where the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures.""

*** This show was really good too. It was quirky and it was heavy and light at times.  It's a shame it ended so soon.  

Currently, Karis and I are watching Battlestar Galatica.  She's already seen the entire series and I think it's one of her favorites.   

Whelp.... That's all :)
