Firefly marked the birth of the Summer Glau obsession among fanboys and fangirls everywhere. River Tam is wildly intelligent and an amazing dancer. Fully trained in combat, she’s more than capable of taking care of herself (and probably you, too). She’s also exhibited some telepathic abilities… those HAVE to come in handy, right? Wink wink.
