My Hero Jayne — Rough & Ready

I haven't done anything Firefly related in a long time, and since the only two things worth a crap on television these days are Sons of Anarchy and good ole crotchety House, I'm hitting my compete collection of Firefly episodes starting this week.

The video is of a Trace Adkins song, Rough & Ready, set to clips of the irrepressible mercenary Jayne Cobb in Firefly, doin' what he does. Enjoy!

BTW, here's my favorite Jayne quotes from Firefly, with him in deep conversation with Shepherd Book:

Jayne Cobb: It ain't impossible! Saint Jayne, it's got a ring to it.
Book: I'm just trying to remember how many miracles you've performed.
Jayne Cobb: I once hit a guy in the neck from 500 yards with a bent scope. Don't that count upstairs?
Book: Oh, it'll be taken into consideration.
Jayne Cobb: You made that sound kinda ominous.

BTW BTW, I cribbed the video from Brigid's wonderful Home on the Range Blog...visit it daily!

I always had a thing for Kaylee. She was the reason I watched the final season of Stargate Atlantis.

Michael, you need to watch NCIS..its very tolerable.

I've been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Getting ready to start the final season. Don't know what I'll watch after that.

Firefly is a family favorite. Summer Glau is top on our list. We have a dog named Kaylee, goat named River, ducks named Jayne, Simon, and Zoe.

My wife's political affilition.. Browncoat. :)

I've been watching "Sons of Anarchy" and my wife's gotten me into "House". You ought to check out "Rescue Me" when it's back on. It's seasons run opposite SOA. Google "rescue me sensitivity" for one of my favorite clips from the show.

If you get BBC America and enjoy British humor and cars, take a look at "Top Gear" some time.

Of course, Wednesday nights are the best nights on TV. :)

BTW, my verification word is "horde". I love it!

Its a shame that Firefly wasn't a hit when it was on. It was not very well supported by the network. Its tough being a fan of a show that only has 13 episodes. Even the movie wasn't well supported; kudos to those that got it made anyway. SOA is a show that I've been watching, but it's more of a "nothing else to watch" kinda thing; I have a very hard time getting my "give a damn" meter to register for an OMG. I guess they're marginally better than racists. Can't wait for Burn Notice to come back on, which will be soon. Thank God for sports; I'd give up my TV without 'em.

I'll second Lawrence on NCIS. Cote de Pablo, oh yeah - she is verrrry tolerable!

Seems your a TV fan. Last night on the TV show Bones, FBI agent Booth was carrying what appeared to be a 1911 in a shoulder holster with the hammer back and I assume the safety on. Somebody must have a good consultant to get something like that correct.

P.S. the show was about a misplaced mummy and of course a murder.

Thank you! I had no idea you were one of my regulars. I'm honored.

Loved that video. That's my kind of guy.

From Brigid's blog:

"But myself, I prefer the old fashioned, non fashionable kind of guy... Not to pay my way, or fight my battles for me, but to simply be there, loving me unconditionally while I reload."

If I was a chick, I'd have a new sig right now.

Another FIREFLY fan here....Book was my favorite...wish they'd explored his character more....maybe the Operative can help...

Another pretty good show, esp. since the STARGATE shows (don't know about UNIVERSE yet--kinda has that bad nu-BSG taste) are over is SANCTUARY...and the gun-handling isn't bad either....

...and Amanda Tapping makes a great brunette...
