Speaking of Firefly, I've just let another co-worker in my department borrow my DVDs. If she becomes a fan (and if she doesn't, she'd be the first - my convert record is 100% so far), Browncoats will be the majority in my work area.
Watched John Cleese's Wine for the Confused tonight. Although I can't say that I really learned anything new about wine (I already knew about the Big Six grapes, that Pinot Noir is difficult to grow, that a high price doesn't guarantee a good wine, etc.), I was entertained. Cleese is just so warm in this -- it's truly like an old friend has made a video for you to help you along. He clearly loves his subject.
I would recommend it to people who are absolute beginners when it comes to wine, but I'd have to warn them about the DVD: it's apparently done by a small production company, and they put trailers at the beginning, one of which isn't clearly a trailer and is full of sexually explicit language. I don't have a problem with the language per se, but just the way it's done, I was momentarily confused and thought that they'd sent me the wrong movie. Just go straight to the top menu if you decide to rent it.
I'm still really enjoying Netflix. I love being able to just pop something like this in and watch it on my schedule.
