1) Firefly/Serenity (since I see River there)
Sadly I did not discover Firefly until shortly before the movie came out. This is because at the time we didn't have cable and couldn't pick up Fox. I am still very sad there weren't more seasons. I hope I can find some more of the graphic novels. I only have the first one. My husband got me the box set of Firefly for a present, but I can't remember which occasion it was for. I think anniversary or birthday.
I still have all of my dolls from childhood, and some of my little sister's. Mostly Barbie. Also She-Ra, Rainbow Brite (smaller one), Princess Rose Petal (only one of those I have), AG doll Kirsten and a lot of her stuff, Belle, Beast, Ariel, Eric, Jasmine, Rajah, a German Cinderella, Skipper, Stacey, Kelly. I think I have a Courtney, but I'm not sure. Most of my older dolls are packed away. I have a massive lack of shelf space to display them. In adulthood I started collecting Barbie's Dolls of the World, Princesses of the World, and the Barbie Fairies. I was also introduced to several doll lines that I had never heard of by tanz_fanatika . Namely BEGoth dolls, Pullips, Juku Couture, and BJD's. The last of which I like but will probably never be able to get. I have quite a few of the Bleeding Edge Goth girls, 3 Pullips, one Taeyang Horizon (a present from my sis, just got here today), I have Juku doll Audrina on order from Walmart, but I am having trouble with their Site-to-Store thing. Ordered her right after Christmas and she still hasn't gotten here yet. I'm planning to track down a pre-Mattel Felicity doll and maybe some of her stuff when we get our tax refund. I've wanted her since she came out. I got Kirsten for Christmas 1989 when there were only 3 AG dolls.
3) Channon Roe (ROCKS. I love him.) First discoved him watching Kindred: The Embraced. Had a MAD crush on his character. I still get excited whenever I see him on TV somewhere or in a movie. Even if it's only a small part. Kash was just the most awesome vampire. His storyline was so sad. I have the series on VHS, because for some reason one of my fave scenes got edited out on the DVD version. So sad that there wasn't a second season of that.
4) Boondock Saints First watched this at a New Year's Eve Party. We played the drinking game (adapted version). Take a swig every time someone dies, someone says the F word, and when the guy messes up a saying. And really that is enough to give someone alchohol poisoning if you were doing it with shots. I was drinking wine coolers, so I wasn't too messed up by the end, but some people were drinking stuff that was a bit harder. It's one of my fave movies now.
5) She-Ra Ah, my beloved favorite childhood show. I had a costume when I was little. Most of it got lost in the move back from Germany, but I still have my sword, it still has one jewel sticker, and it still glows in the dark. I have She-Ra, Bo, Glimmer, Catra, Frosta, and the swan with the saddle. Also the Crystal Castle. I never liked the toy of Swift Wind. He wasn't supposed to be pink, dammit. They could have gotten the colors right if they had wanted to. I currently own Season 1 pt 1 and 2. My son really likes the show too. I can't watch it without snickering just a little, thinking that if they think the Horde is the ultimate evil, they've never seen real evil in action. Also I laugh at Hordack's funny weapon names. "My Laser Bubble Blaster!" I still like the show, I just think 20 guys with guns and the willingness to actually kill people could take over the whole planet.
I'm curious to see if anyone responds to this.
