Firefly fan--yay! What a bummer that they never brought that back. The movie rocked too! My hubby has a brown shirt that says "browncoats" on it, and and on the back it says "I aim to misbehave."

Oh, and if you do tackle B5 (which I HIGHLY recommend); you'll have to cope with a real hit-or-miss first season, and Bruce Boxleitner smiling... way too much... throughout the second (though the plot really starts to accellerate in the second). But if you want to understand the show... start at the beginning. Same goes for the new BSG (although...I don't think it's a had a "shaky" season yet... bleak, yes, but not shaky). :-)

I guess I SHOULD qualify that one a little. I stuck with Voyager for a year and a half before deciding that they couldn't write their way out of a wet paper bag. They did cheesy plot, after cheesy alien, after cheesy dialog, after cheesy cop-out resolution and I just wearied of it and gave up... loved the Borg plots. Loved some of the characters (doctor in particular), but the show just never gelled for me. On top of that, when it was bad... it stank out loud! (e.g. "Macro viruses"; "Amazon Women"... advertised using the song "Venus"; aliens who SEEM to communicate through interpretive dance...ugh!) I just felt insulted after 1.5 years of that dross. Enterprise likewise had a real touch and go start, but got really good by its premature end.

Okay... I'll get down off my soapbox now. :-)

Welcome.

Why don't you like Voyager? I want to work on Babylon 5 and BSG after I get through Stargate.

"Chevron seven... also lit up"
Hello all, like my wife (READY-TO-WIN in case you hadn't already pieced that together), I am a sci-fi nerd of collossal proportions (my nerddom, that is... thanks to sparkpeople I'm getting better about MY OWN collossal proportions). I'm a fan of Stargate (all flavors), Star Trek (all flavors, save Voyager), BSG (old and new), Babylon 5 and its various spinoff attempts, Firefly, Space Above and Beyond, need I go on? I've been impressed with Stargate in particular beacause, just when you start thinking they've lost their edge, they do an episode like "200" that reminds you of why you watching the show in the first place.
