Don't get me wrong, I'm a Star Wars fan from way back in '77, but something has always bothered me. Maybe it was answered in the novels or comics (never read them) but I've always wondered what 'academy' Luke wanted to transmit his application to.

Every year or so, we'll have a Firefly marathon with a viewing of Serenity to cap it off. It's a constant reminder of what good, smart writing actually looks like on the screen. As a struggling novelist, it's exactly the kind of inspiration I need. You've got nothing to lose by watching it and absolutely the whole… » 9/13/12 6:59pm 9/13/12 6:59pm
