I know I’ve been harping on Firefly and Serenity for quite some time now. Renae and I have been watching the series with the Tredways and one of her roommates, and much fun has been had by all. Even though I’ve seen some of these episodes 3 or 4 times, I still find them intriguing, enjoyable, and hilarious. (Until now, the only other series that could really, truly hold that honor were The Simpsons and M*A*S*H, so that right there should tell you about the quality of Firefly.)

Anyhoo, my coworker showed me this earlier today. It’s a fan parody of Firefly/Serenity titled Mosquito. Right now, the site’s basically a placeholder, but there is a minute-long teaser that’s worth a chuckle or two.

I love the Star Wars reference with the Mal character, as well as the little hair toss moment from the Kaylee-esque character (who actually has more than a passing resemblance to Kaylee). And of course, there are the lyrics — “They’re airin’ baseball yet again/We might not make to episode 10.”

You know you’ve truly arrived when the fans start making their own parodies.

And just for the heck of it, when you’re doing watching the Mosquito teaser, take another look at the Serenity trailer. Ah Serenity, helps ease the pain…
