Halloween Pop Culture Refs

This first one is really only for my friends who knew and enjoyed Firefly. Nathon Fillion played Mal Reynolds in that ill-fated Sci-Fi western. He has landed on his feet and appeared in a number of popular roles. Currently, I'm watching him in a show called Castle, where he plays a mystery writer shadowing a female police detective to learn how it's really done. It's a pretty fun program.

So anyway, they have a Halloween episode this week. Castle is home trying on his costume for a party he's throwing, and it's Mal Reynolds! It's the exact duster, boots, gloves, etc. that make up the typical outfit that Mal wore in Firefly. Castle's daughter asks him, "what are you supposed to be?"

"Space cowboy!" he replies.

"Didn't you wear that like five years ago?" she asks. "Don't you think it's time you got over it?"

Second one is not so geeky, and I'm sure Renee might get a little smile off it as well. The show Numb3rs chose a light 'X-Files' vibe for their Halloween nod. Granger is walking through a hangar in 'Area 51' and asks, "why do I feel like I'm in a Scooby Doo episode?"

At the end of the episode, the quirky Pentagon 'auditor' played by John Michael Higgins says "and they would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you pesky kids."
