Firefly, WTF!

I'm still trying to figure out how you Americans let this show get cancelled. Its the 2nd best tv series after B5. Honestly I'm loving every second of it. No show ever has hit the ground running like this. Its got everything anyone could possibly want: great characters, great dialogue, great action, plots, effect, you get the picture...even girl-on-girl action

And, no I'm not some kind of Whedon devotee, I can't stand Angel and Buffy. I just wish I'd started taping it from the beginning. I'm now busy taping Firefly over the shitty episodes of Jeremiah (which makes most of them). Don't flame me, I tried to give it a chance. Kurdy is the only one I find remotely interesting.

Now, if you'll excuse me, "I'll be in my bunk" -Jayne

Re: Firefly, WTF!

I'm a Whedon devotee and was bored by Firefly.

Hmm, is this a pattern? Does it apply to anyone else?

I think you're still smarting from the Dark Angel cancellation, and that's coloured your vision a little.

The channel started with Train Job, just like in the US. I don't see what was so bad. It was fun, introduced the characters; and when Mal kicked that tatooed guy into the ship's turbine I was hooked.

And Joss hasn't even written most of the episodes, but they're all so good.

Seriously of all the scifi shows I've watched recently: Farscape, Crusade, Firefly and Jeremiah; the latter is the one I'd least want to see renewed. I'm not on some anti-Jeremiah tirade, I was just as enthusiastic about it when it started as anyone else around here.

Yes and no. When I was watching it, no... it was a new Joss show, I was more focused on that. But now Firefly has been cannned, yes. I feel a lot of animosity.

Re: Firefly, WTF!

Firefly was just a great, great show that never got a chance. Buffy and Angel bored me to no end -- but Firefly had real pizazz.

There is buzz that a theatrical release type thing is in the works -- and apparently Joss is refusing to let this thing die. Hope springs eternal.

Antony has no taste.

Re: Firefly, WTF!

I saw a preview of Firefly at Comic Con last year & was underwhelmed by it. I could never buy people acting & looking like people from the 1800s in space. And I love the Buffy series. Btw, I can't get UPN on my cable system, so I am only watching Buffy on DVD. Season 4 just came out, cool.

WE Americans didn't LET it get cancelled! The powers to be don't give a flying frell what the fans want. They just want big bucks, no matter what we (the fans) say.

Re: Firefly, WTF!

I coulnd't get past a whole episode of Firefly. Mind you, it's not as bad as Mutant X! Oh, and I don't like Buffy or Angel either.

Bring back Farscape!

That's how I felt about Firefly, at the beginning. However, it grew on me.

Generally, I've always liked BtVS and Angel.

There three main series I'd love to see renewed (in order of preference, highest to lowest):

1. Crusade

2. Brimstone

and

3. Firefly


Aw hell, while I'm wishing, I'd also like to see the following renewed:

4. The Tick

and

5. Special Unit 2.
