Firefly and Serenity
I've noticed a few mentions of the Joss Whedon series Firefly and the Serenity movie. So since it seemed to be a show that a few people here are fans of, I thought I might start of a little thread for it on it's own.

(Forgive me if one already existed, but there seemed to be none active at this time).

So - have at it!

Yesterday, I watched serenity for the first time!

They had SOUND in space! That was disappointing, after the eerie silent scenes in the series...

I thought that it was pretty good. It had a very different feel to it though, much more serious. You got the sense of a missing four seasons or so. Not missing as in skipped out, but that all this information was going to be slowly layered on gradually and it was suddenly thrust upon us.

But... but...

it's only my opinion but...
great series. I only became aware of it after the dvd box set became available. Shame it was cancelled.

Indeed. Even greater shame the movie was not successful enough to warrant a sequel. Great characters and pretty darn good sci-fi.

I followed it from first airing on TV.
Tried to get a female friend interested when the ex and I were visiting her. Even resorted to playing the "it's by the Buffy and Angel guy. You like Buffy and Angel" card and still no go. She was even a Trek fan, but once the horses and starships got mixed she said "ugh".

Of course her husband uttered the same "ugh" when I tried to get him interested in watching the Battlestar Galactica mini-series. It was cutting into his Playstation time. They were funny people.

Tastes are what they are though.

I absolutely loved Firefly the series. It was indeed unique, and had Joss Whedon's signature brand of humor that I came to love from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Serenity, whilst having an awesome story, just felt like a minimalist jump to the big screen. It is VERY enjoyable on DVD/Blu-Ray, or even the Playstation Portable UMD format.

I am eagerly awaiting getting Firefly and Serenity on Blu-Ray.

I enjoyed Firefly and Serenity to an incredible degree. It combined the rough and tough of the West with Sci-fi technology. That on its own is fantastic but they also removed those dreaded accents and those cowboy hats. Hooray For Joss
