Happy Easter from Sam

NOTE: Not for the squeamish who plan on eating today.

Science Channel has been airing reruns of "Firefly" on Sunday nights. Since this was one of those shows people rave about but that I had never watched. I decided to set the DVR and see what all the fuss was about.

I have been enjoying the episodes just fine, but wasn't totally won over until the episode I watched today, "Safe". Something about the characters, their interaction and the dialogue just pushed the show from 'like' to 'love', in my mind.

I have to say I am sort of glad I knew the show was already cancelled, because I would have been heartbroken had I been in love with it and hoped for more and had the rug ripped out from under me.


Some quotes from this episode:

Kaylee: "Well, we're headed for help... right?"

Zoe: "Captain will come up with a plan."

Kaylee: "That's good. Right?"

Zoe: "Possibly you're not recalling some of his previous plans."


Mal: "Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. Whaddya suppose that makes us?"

Zoe: "Big damn heroes, sir."

Mal: "Ain't we just!"


Simon: "So finally...a decent wound on this ship, and I miss out. I'm sorry."

Mal: "Well, you were busy trying to get yourself lit on fire. It happens."


Can't wait to see the remaining episodes and the movie and to delve into the comics!

Extreme Couponing

I am very much looking forward to the new TLC series "Extreme Couponing".

Here's a clip from the special that aired earlier this year:

I have been doing my own couponing and saving since January. Have saved a ton of cash. Better in our pocket than the store's register!

TLC Extreme Couponing Premieres April 6 @ 9/8c

Guess What's on Hulu Now?

I woke up and checked my email and found I had a "Hulu Queue Alert". Amazingly, H.R. Pufnstuf is available now to watch, for free. All 17 episodes!

I haven't seen this since I was a very young kid, since it first aired when I was just born. I caught reruns of a few shows and that was it.

It is weird and wacky, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. I am not sure the Krofft Brothers ever produced anything as odd as this show. And that's saying something, cause all of their shows are way off kilter!

Here is the first episode. It's only a little over 21 minutes long, so hit play and let your brain relax!

Weird, strange, manic - Just what you want from a Sid and Marty Krofft show!

Cool Art - Tully's Coffee

At Tully's Coffee site, there are three little "search-and-find" games.
Nothing hard, just simple stuff.

I love the art they used for them:

Fun. The last one depicts a dream job!

Go to Tully's Coffee to play the actual games.
