[A] Night!

Anime night is tonight!
7:00pm - Doors open
7:30pm - Mystery Anime
9:00pm - Firefly, episode 7

Anime: I really have no idea what we are watching Anime-wise tonight. It might be another Last Exile disc. It might be Bubblegum Crisis. It might be that interesting, odd angel anime that Hans keeps telling me about. So, your guess is as good as mine.

Firefly - Set almost 500 years in the future, this short-lived but much-loved Joss Whedon TV series follows the adventures of the ragtag crew of the transport spaceship Serenity. No job is too small, too dirty or too close to the line of illegality for the crew to tackle to remain fed and fueled. But when a passenger is wanted by the ruling Alliance regime, the Firefly must hide out the dangerous fringes of space.
