An Awesome Firefly Serenity Ornament

For as much as I love TV, I typically try to refrain from collecting collectibles. Besides the numerous DVD sets, I’ve only got a replica Angel puppet doll from “Smile Time” (5×14), a Buffy lego-like character, a couple of TV show posters, and a replica monkey bookend from Wonderfalls. But lately I’ve been on the lookout for … Continue reading

Super Bowl & Sitcoms

Now typically, as a TV addict, I prefer to avoid commercials at all costs with the one exception of the Super Bowl.
