Serenity Solar Powered Video Tombstones –
There may be holographic tombstones in the movie Serenity, but who knows how long they might have played after Mal and River left the scene? When the ‘verse is that big, they probably don’t come back to visit that often and don’t worry about it.
Serenity, the Movie –
Serenity is a 2005 science-fiction film written and directed by Joss Whedon. It is set in the universe of the canceled Fox science fiction television series Firefly, taking place a few months after the events of the final episode. Like the television series that spawned it, Serenity is a science fiction Western, using elements of both genres. The film was released in the US on September 30, 2005.

Title Play Off:
Many happy returns – Greeting:
“Many happy returns” is a greeting which is used by some on birthdays, and by others in response to “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year”. Since the 18th century this has been used as a salutation to offer the hope that a happy day being marked would recur many more times. It is now primarily used, by some, on birthdays. Prior to the mid-19th century, it was used at any celebratory or festive event. The phrase is more common in British English, Indian English, Hiberno English and to some degree in Canadian English than in American English.
