Ah! I forgot to make it multiple choice. Could someone who can change polls fix it for me?

Sorry, it won't let us change it to multiple choice after it's been made.


That box that allows you to do that is gone when we edit a poll.

post #6  quote:

This show was on Fox for about thirteen episodes not long ago. Was it two years ago? It was yet another brilliant Whedon show, but it got canceled but idiots. It had the best first season of all the Whedon shows, and might have been better all around if it was given the chance.

It's set in the far future when Earth That Was (ours) either no longer exists or just no one goes there anymore. I think it got burned up by the sun, because this is far in the future. A war of independence against The Alliance was lost by the Browncoats, and now every planet in the Universe is ruled by The Alliance. The Captain of Serenity, a Firefly class ship was a sargent in the Browncoats army and has a bitter distaste for The Alliance even though the war is long over. There's a lot to explain, so if you think you'll borrow the series then I won't continue and possibly spoil some stuff for you.


There was a movie in September called Serenty. It picks up where the show Firefly ends and finishes everything. It's an aewsome movie, but don't watch it until you watch the show. I mean it.

I voted for River. She's so cool (and loopy), and by the time Serenity comes around she totally blows it up. Everyone in the cast is pretty cool in their own way, though. It's a combination of everyone that makes it the best sci fi show I've ever seen.

Well, she just wasn't as fun as the others. Less witty dialog, less entertaining situations, and she doesn't know crazy martial arts moves.

I like her, but she's not my favorite.

Well, basically true. It was sometimes amusing when she got into it with Malcolm though. If I remember correctly, she was the only woman who could get under his skin.

I voted for Mal.
I thought he was a very good lead character.
Strong, Funny
It is hard to pick from the other characters.
If I had to pick who I would miss the least it would be the doctor.
I think the characters it would hardest to replace with other actors would be Kaylee, Shepherd Book and River but they all fit their characters very well.

My favorite Mal segment was when he told that fellow to "say it to his face" so Zoe could get behind him. That was a crack up.

Yeah, I voted for her. made the show.


My favorite part of the series was when Jayne gave that long winded speech about not wanting to help the people on the planet if there was no money involved,

then Mal says, "Their Whores",

and Jayne says "I'm in."



Had to rewind that and watch it again.

She tried to force me into watching them, when she first got them, she pushed to hard, and I told her I'd never watch them as long as I live.

I remember the fight quite well.

I don't get why some people are so against watching the show. My wife's the same, she absolutely runs from the room when she thinks I'm going to play it and she just shakes her head and mumbles whenever she hears that rocking theme tune.

Which seasn 7 episode do you have picked out for him?

I'd personally give him the Life Serial episode from Season 6. Got lots of laughs, and the Trio are in full form with their death-star covered, imperial march singing, undercover van.

Alright, when this show first came out I watched one episode, thought it alright, never saw another one. It was cancelled, I didn't care, so long.

A few of my friends really dug it and were geeked out to see the movie. I was like, meh.

So fart forward to this past Monday. I am sitting on my buttocks and I flip by Firefly on Sci-Fi. There was nothing else on. Nothing on my DVR. So I watched it. Of course, it was the same episode I saw way back when. I sit through it.

This time though... I liked it.

Turns out there was another episode on. I watched that. And another. They went on until 7pm and I watched them all.

Now, this show rules and I'm a damn fool for missing it.

-HECK!

Oh, and other than Mal (you gotta give it up for the captain) I think Jayne is the dopest. Dirty ol' scrapy dude, that's cool. Right up there is Sheppard, too. I would have loved to find out what his shady background was.

River just pissed me off. Acting a fool every show. Of course the show didn't last long enough to explore what her deal was, she still bugged.

Zoe was lame too. A statue could have played her role.

Jayne's cool. I like the episode with her getting done by the mechanic, then taking his job. Classic stuff.
