Hooray! What do you think? I like it much more than either of those series.

Well, I should mention that I suck at series television. I liked Angel more than Buffy but not enough to put effort into watching it. I am simply too far past high school for Buffy. I liked the first so many seasons but I just could not keep up with the angsty, high school-ness of it. I should also mention that I loathed high school so that could be part of it.

I like Firefly so far. I am up to episode 9 on Netflix right now. It's a fun show. I like the female characters. I am going to wait until I watch all of them until I make a final judgment. All I will say now is that Mal gets shot. A lot.

I didn't like either Buffy or Angel and am a huge Firefly/Serenity fan. Glad you're giving it a shot xD and yes, Mal gets shot a lot lol

We finished BSG in January and proceeded immediately to Firefly and it delayed any reaction I had to BSG and I might have ended up loving Firefly more. I'm still sad it ended and hope it comes back someday. Oh Mal, my partner and I both have a crush on him.

Season one was good. Season two can't hold my attention for anything.

Do I watch Firefly/Serenity too often if, when I asked my daughter why she didn't like someone she said "They meddle"?

Dollhouse was okay and started to get stronger by the end, but it's definitely Joss's weakest series. IMO anyway.

I think Dollhouse might be my second favorite Whedon show, but time will tell if it holds up. I thought the concept behind it was really promising, and the execution ranged between so-so and amazing. Buffy and Angel, on the other hand, have had phenomenal episodes but also some cringe-worthy cheesy ones. Like, I'd be embarrassed to watch them with someone who'd never see those shows before. (Firefly, of course, ranged from amazing to phenomenal.)

I dreamed last night that I met Nathan Fillion and NPH. Only we were talking about Firefly and I started getting really enthusiastic and talking to them like they were fans, and I ended up saying something bad about the 1rst seasons of all of Joss' shows (except Firefly), and then they looked at each other and then they looked at me and guys, they were so disapproving! And I immediately felt so deeply ashamed.

I like to think that in real life they would have just given you hugs and said they understood.

ugh, science channel is evidently showing one of the episodes totally out of order, so that throws a bit of a wrench in my.... oooh, netflix!

I just watched all 14 episodes in 3 days. I got the first three on DVD and couldn't wait for the rest, so I just watched them online.

I'm in love. I'm so sad that it's just those episodes and Serenity (which I actually saw before I watched the series, and even I cried when Wash died). But I'm kinda glad I didn't see it when it first aired because it probably would've just annoyed me. I have to agree with those who said it's Joss's strongest 1st season, and I'm sad thinking what it could've been with a start like that.

BTW - Team Simon. I can't believe it took all 14 episodes before we saw him shirtless. Though I love Wash so hard! (I don't even know how Alan Tudyk got on my radar, but I've loved him as long as I can remember.)

I'm not big on burly, shooty guys. I like the pretty, sensitive ones. Though that scene where he told Kaylee that she was his only option was pretty douchey (though unintentionally so).

So, my friend (who's a huge Firefly fan - she has the yellow shirt Jayne wears in Serenity) thought that the person who said "What was that?" at the end of Serenity was Wash. I just watched it, and it did kinda sound like him. Was that Joss dicking with us? If it wasn't Wash, who was it?

you...what? he's adorable. except for the mentioned douchey-ness. he lacks in people skills a bit, and kaylee is the best thing ever.

i actually started watching white collar because i confused sean maher and matt bomer. this was clearly not even close to correct, but it's all good.

i think there's very little movie chat here but of course you have to watch it.

i watched! woo! 12 episodes on sunday, the other two last night, and serenity today.

totally dug it. i think i've checked every box on my joss whedon scorecard now. :D

having just watched an hour ago... i think the person who said 'what was that?' at the end of the movie was mal.

It was. It repeats back to what happened in the beginning of the movie, when a door panel blew off on take-off in the first few minutes, or something.
