Firefly anyone?
« on: June 21, 2008, 03:07:58 AM »
I just recently picked up the complete series Firefly on DVD. I just thought I'd see what everyones opinion on that show was. Short lived as it was I think it was perhaps the best series I have ever had the joy of watching, not to mention and full length picture named Serenity that was amazing.  I loved the characters and the interaction between them, the dialog, the gritty action and comedy all twirled into one fantastic package. Well enough of my strange obsession with the show, how about your thoughts?

I think it's fantastic. It did push the edge of what we thought was acceptable content, but it turns out the episode we turned off in the middle got much better from that point on rather than worse. And I have to agree with Scott Card about the movie.

There are other threads about it though.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

We find it wonderfully re-watchable.

Firefly was supposed to be our next great sci-fi series, and instead it gets canceled.

Serenity is, and will be for the foreseeable future, one of my favorite movies.

I love Firefly and Serenity, my husband and I have watched both the series and movies multiple times.  I basically love anything Joss Whedon.  His writing and directing is awesome.

I thought the short series and movie were both pretty good. I need to buy them sometime.
You think I'm afraid? Well, get ready to be surprised.

That is a great video.  I've always like song, and the video is done very well.  Thanks for the link.

Completely entertaining and wonderfully quotable.  Love that show.

I have a t-shirt with two dragons on it where one is saying "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

I am a HUGE fan!  I'm not a collector of DVD's but that is one thatI bought to watch again and again... My fav episodes have to be "shindig" and "our Mrs. Reynolds" (and the one with the whores.. mostly because of Jayne)  we always quote going to the "special hell, reserved for child molesters and people who talk to loud at movies."  I'm glad to be among fans   :D    ;D

Of course, we all know the real reason you said dragons. It was all a test to set the real fans apart from the wannabes!
