I don’t know about you, but I think one of my dream jobs might possibly be becoming a doctor for a space ship with the most fun loving, loyal, and rowdy crew around this half of the galaxy. It might not have been what Simon Tam was looking for, but when it comes to being all medical-like, he just rocks it.
I could probably spend an entire month just writing about all the things I love about the show Firefly, but sadly I think I would bore you all to death, or maybe commit several of you to more hours sneaking in time at your cubicle to read my mind-blowing posts rather than being productive at work. But this month’s theme gives me an excuse to spotlight several female characters from my favorite show. I know a lot of people might think of River Tams first when they think of warrior women from Firefly, yet I want to give some credit to this kick-ass first mate first.
Every year when August rears its hot, humid and sweaty head I get a little excited that it is that time of year again: that time of year being time to re-watch the TV show Firefly. Feel free to replace the above sentence with any month of the year, since it is a well known fact that Firefly is the best TV show of all time, and therefore why deprive yourself, you might as well indulge in this addicting program multiple times a year. I am sure most of you sci-fi loving freaks have already come across this show (and therefore become a drooling slave to its powers), but for those of you who have not, drop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and go online or to the nearest Newbury Comics to buy yourself a copy. Before you know it you will be fired from your job for lack of productivity since you will be spending all waking hours outside of work watching the show, which is a good thing since it will allow you to re-watch the show again and again without work interfering.
We’ve crossed into another month on the calendar devious nerds, so that means it’s time for another installment of The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks Top 5 Thunderdome Throwdown!

Remember, if you have any ideas for a Top 5 Throwdown you want to see, then drop us a line in the comments section. Here we go:
