I know there are a few threads out there about the film at least, but they're very old and filled with neutral reviews. So this thread is for fanboy/fangirl chat since I know there are at least a few of us on this site who love this amazing series and film (mostly I know this because I stalk such people).

reminder: even though I've said 'spoilers' in the title, it's only fair to put all those nasty little heartwrenching moments (you know what I'm talking about
) and surprising plot details under
[SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]spoiler tags[/SPOILER]
in case curious people wander in.

Okay, fellow Browncoats, have at it!

I started watching that series... but it was cancelled. Pity, it was quite funny. The movie was good but they skipped the song at the start.

Sometimes that show really reminded me of EVE online.

I looked up EVE online. I see what you mean.

I'm bummed.


I want a bumper sticker that says "my other vehicle is a firefly class transport ship". But the one I actually saw the text looked blurry and funny.

Just cut the words out of paper and spraypaint it on.

Either that or pay someone to make a sticker for you.

A while back, having seen bits of Buffy and not being terribly impressed with it, I tended to be rather wary of the hype around Joss Whedon's name. One of my message boards about comic books, though, is actually dedicated to Whedon, so I had to hear about about Whedon this and Joss that and firefly that all the bloody time. Everybody seemed terribly excited about Whedon, especially the Firefly series. So, when a friend offered to lend me the DVDs, I thought 'what the hell, let's see what this is about'. And I've been hooked ever since. I watched Serenity soon after I finished the series, but now I want more!! More I say!

Isowish, (it's weird calling you that) where did i get your serenity tee shirt made from? You might be able to get a "baby on board" style thing made from there.

No, better idea - "honk if you're ..." bumper sticker. It can be filled with all kinds of comical serenifly (Yes I said it) type things.

There's a few horrible episodes of Buffy, and that includes several seasons of the show.

There's a few very good episodes as well ("Hush", for example).

Most of it was watchable, in my opinion.

Disclaimer: I only had one channel at the time, so it wasn't as if I had anything else to watch.

Did I?

I mean, I probably did. Most of my friends and email pals are Firefly fans and I use it all the time. I have to fight the urge to use it in places where the uninitiated heathens might be confused by it. Guess one slipped by.


Oh, actually, I think I nominated Mal for best good guy in an Entertainment forum thread troub started.

Season one is pretty bad. I mean, it was good at the time but going back and rewatching it after the awesomeness of later seasons, well...not so much. The Inca Mummy Girl episode is just plain goofy. And the Master is way too one-dimensional.

Buffy was like a creative sandwich. It started off all right, got great for a while in the middle, and then kind of tapered off to just sort of okay. I still enjoyed the show but it was a shadow of its former self in the last couple of seasons.

Angel was a bit like that too. Off to a slow start, but once it got its creative legs it was awesome. Then they moved into Wolfram and Heart and it all sort of fell apart. And that last episode...meh.


But even an okay episode of Buffy or Angel was better than a good episode of most shows.

Sigh. I used to live for Tuesday nights. I miss them so much.


As for Firefly...there was no bad. Every episode was a gem. The cast was incredible. And while it never had the chance to die a slow death like Buffy, it sure would have been nice to get a couple seasons out of it.

So, yeah. Aliens movies notwithstanding Joss Whedon can do no wrong in my eyes.

Cheers!

PS. Out. For. A. Walk...B!tch.

Ok, so has anyone of you guys given the Serenity comic books a go? I think they're supposed to cover the time period between the end of the series till the film begins. I would love more Firefly material, but for some reason, I tend to shy away from TV-related comic books. Would love feedback from anyone who's read them.

I love Firefly too. I didn't enjoy the film as much as it wasn't as character-focussed, but it was still great a few things aside - yes, those spoiler moments, you know what I'm talking about!!!

Was finally forced into watching Firefly by my husband though glad I was because I love it. Wash and Kaylee are my favourite characters. And yes I have a habit of using 'gorram' too. And 'shiny'.

Loved Buffy and Angel, though agree with jeezycreezy about them peaking in the middle and being a bit rubbish towards the end.

I've read some of them...not sure exactly how much because I got them in book form instead of comic book form. It might even be all of them, but if so it doesn't end very well


Pretty cool though, and ties into the show well. I don't regret buying them.
