| You scored as Serenity (from Firefly). You like to live your own way and do not enjoy it when anyone but a friend tries to tell you that you should do differently. Now, if only the Reavers would quit trying to skin you.
Coming on December 1, 2005:
I find it even more appropriate that Farscape is ranked last than that Serenity is ranked first. While the show is well-done, and I’ve liked some of it, it’s never been comfortable. I just can’t enjoy watching it.
I finally realized why last year—all the characters are constantly sniping at each other, and that’s when they’re getting along. I hate being around people like that, and I certainly don’t want to seek out that sort of thing in my entertainment. curiousmay9 said that was part of what she liked best about it because it seemed more realistic to her than other shows.
While the crew of Serenity isn’t all lovey-dovey, there just isn’t the constant bitchiness that’s taken for granted on Farscape.
The snarky personal interactions on Moya are just too much like some situations I’ve had to deal with in real life, and I want my entertainment to be a nice escape. It’s the same reason I’m not into truly dark anything, whether it be movies or RPGs or whatever: I’ve had enough of that in real life. I don’t need any more of that. People being nasty to each other is something I’ve chosen to stop tolerating in my everyday life, and I don’t need to watch it on a screen, either.
Maybe I should add that to my “things I’ve learned from this breakup” list: how much snarkiness seems normal or tolerable to the other person, even in fiction? My home life snark-tolerance is relatively low, as I need the home to be a haven. I don’t believe in sweeping problems under the rug by any means. I think they need to be worked out; then, people need to let go of them. Those who have to keep bringing up issues that have been taken care of, who stay angry about them and treasure their gripes like jewels, aren’t compatible with me/us.
