  • Mood:
I'm watching Firefly for the first time.

Thoughts after first five episodes: Less Mal, more Badger!

Sorry, Mal's an irritating bore. Instead of remaking The Virginian in space, Joss should have remade My Fair Lady in space. River and Badger, of course.

A non-sexist, orthogonally symmetrical MFL, with River teaching Badger to read and write and find the definite integral, and Badger teaching River how to pick pockets and kill a rozzer with a shiv. I tell you, those two have electricity!

Maybe there could be a West Side Story episode, casting the Reavers as the Sharks.

C'mon. You know what Joss really wants to do is musical comedy.

Update: aw, crap, I just imdb'ed Badger, found he's only in two episodes, and I've already seen them both. Well, I'm bummed.




HAN


meaning: general, time, carry

全般的 ==  senbanteki == (adjective that takes な) universal, general
一般 == ippon == (adjective that takes の, noun) general, liberal, universal, ordinary, average




Left radical is 'boat' (舟). Right radical is 'striking hand', comprised of the 'axe' radical (top) and one of the many versions of the 'hand' radical (bottom). This character originally referred to boats carrying items. Other current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hand on boat goes on general strike.'
