Daily Haiku / Senryu : Leaf (Wash’s requiem)

his “leaf on the wind”
triumphant! famous last words —
whedon, how could you?

haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

What can I say?  I hate it when the funny guy dies.  I loved the scene when Wash played with his dinosaurs.  Or when Mal asked him to define an interesting landing and Wash answered “Oh god oh god we’re all going to die.”  Who else can make us laugh with his deadpan delivery of such a fear-laden line?  Of course, taciturn severe Zoe fell for him.  Wash was the laughter that lit up her life.

Ah, well, it’s ok.  They cancelled the series long time ago.  Thank goodness for DVD.  It’s still my favorite sci-fi series with it’s perfect balance of danger, comraderie, and being on the edge of the black.

What is your favorite sci-fi series and/or character?
