H2975: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: A Discussion in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2009)
Viewing of Joss Whedon's web series "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," as well as a discussion of the circumstances that brought about its creation and its context in the rest of Whedon's body of work. All are welcome, but newcomers to Dr. Horrible are especially encouraged.

H1567: Being a Browncoat 101: An Intro to the Firely 'Verse in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
For any of you who have heard of Firefly (or even if you haven't - especially if you haven't), or for any of you who are intrigued to see what one of the world's few sci-fi western television shows was like, this is a class for you. We'd love to have lots of young blood, but those who have already seen Firefly/Serenity are certainly welcome - it's always nice to connect with fellow Browncoats, and who knows? You might learn something new. The class will consist of a discussion about the history of the show, as well as about the characters and backstory of the Firefly universe. At least one episode WILL be screened. If you're looking to join our ranks, know this: Browncoats have done the impossible. Welcome to Serenity.

Students may bring SHORT samples of their own writing to share, with the caveat that constructive criticism will be a key component of the class.
