Would you trade Steampunk lingerie for Firefly?

Posted by Starr Keshet

Now here is a conundrum that will undoubtedly plague geeks and sci-fi fans for years to come.

You are dating this incredibly hot girl who wears Steampunk lingerie, likes to play video games, avidly reads comic books, and accepts, nay, even worships, your er, "alternative" way of life.

Oh, and did I mention she is actually hot? I did. Well, OK. Sorry, I was distracted.

Here’s the thing, though.

She doesn’t like Firefly.

That’s right - she actually loathes everything about Firefly and Serenity, including the fearless Capn’ Mal, the lovely, yet tough Zoe, sultry Inara, sweet Kaylee, Jayne and even, dare I say it, the sexy (but barely believable) River Tam.

Well, that just crosses the damn line, doesn’t it? At least for some of you, I imagine.

Personally, there is no way in hell I’d ditch a hot girl just because she didn’t care for Firefly. 

Seriously, folks.

But then again, I’m not Mikey Mason.

Granted, it isn’t clear if Mason’s song is based on fantasy or reality. I’m kind of thinking (or hoping) it’s the former. Am I alone here?

Please tell me I'm not!
