FIXED531 - If you haven't caught the dvd of Serenity, you should. Sci-Fi chopped out lots of good stuff to make room for commercials. A necessary thing to pay the bills, but it's worthwhile to see the whole show from the dvd.

Firefly came out in 2002 and Serenity came out in 2005. Lots of Browncoats didn't catch one or the other for the original show times.

From what I've read, if there was a shortage of people watching Firefly, it was because the network folks kept moving it around on the schedule. Hard to watch if you don't know when. It might have been another pay the bills thing, but there are still hard feelings among some Browncoats over it.

I knew about it just never thought to watch an episode. I caught Serenity on The Sci-Fi channel and was hooked. I borrowed the box set dvds from someone and got caught up. I guess not enough people got it to keep it running.

Hi Fixed -- ha ha, the red shirts always die in the landing party!!! I had no clue about Firefly until a friend told me and then I caught it on Ovation I think. I got hooked immediately!

Hello, I just joined and found Firefly just a year ago, don't know why I never watched it when it was on. I guess I can blame my ex for that. I guess you can call me a sci-fi geek as I love most sci-fi stuff. I am a bit of a treky and would not wear a red shirt until recently.

HI! I enjoy my "cussify" app for the smart phone -- it has translations from the show. My anime game boy is now officially an adult.
Have a shiny one!

Best. Line. Ever!

I'm Sherrie, geek from way back, 42, married with 2 teens, one fellow geek (but more into anime and gaming than sci fi) and the other a car geek. The husband tries to embrace his geekdom, but will does wear it on his sleeve. Three dogs with Whedonverse names (Fred, Oz, and Victor) complete the family.

I'm a veggie, hippie, grad student, insomniac, and pretty much an open book.

Peace, all.
S

Blessed be!
