Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I just finished watching the Firefly boxed set last night, and loved every moment of the series. She has already bugged me this morning about when we are going to watch Serenity to cap the experience, so way too late to join in with the protests of the show's cancellation, Firefly can boast a couple more lifelong fans. Maybe that's for the best for us, as we probably would not have tipped the scales in favor of saving the show, and this way we avoided some of the real-time anguish the show's death caused (we still haven't recovered from Deadwood and Arrested Development).

Im tired of Heroes using the time travel crutch as a plot. Every season will be moving along, and then boom......time travel. And we get to watch things again........and again.....and again.

They need to get past the time travel do-over button. And another of their favorite story devices is the "Im a mutant, I just don't fit in!" They need to bring back the kid who can talk to the computers, at least he was interesting and less angst ridden than the rest of the characters.

Wonderful, I'm still enjoying this series.

But uh.. can we kill Sylar already? I mean jesus christ I'm getting sick of him. Nothing like a generic, blandly acted, 'I've got every power there is' badguy that hogs 3/4 of every show 4 years running. Kill the character already.

I mean the circus freak leader who controls the ground is already 100x more interesting, better acted and more ambiguous, and all around a better villain-type character.

Amen, but if they canned Sylar, all the 14 year old girls who think he's dreamy would stop watching, and that'd just end the show completely. This season has been fairly decent, but they just killed themselves with the anal cockroach abortion that was the second half of season 3.

Samuel is indeed an awesome villain, though I don't get why Hiro doesn't just fucking stick HIM somewhere in time, like 65,000 BC. See how he fucking likes it? Instead the Japanese douchetard just mopes and pouts. Fucking dipshit.

Firefly is probably the best Sci Fi show to be canceled in its first season. Loved the characters, loved the world, loved the dialog and relationships. Truly a unique show with limitless possibilities, throttled in its infancy.

Such a shame.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was late to the party with Firefly. Just wrapped it up (for the first time) last week. Great show.

Firefly was brilliant. Absolutely LOVED it. That it got cancelled is an absolute travesty.

Blue, Serenity is essentially a high-budget series finale for Firefly, so you really shouldn't miss it. Glad you enjoyed the series.

I'm still bitter about Deadwood getting canned. And it was to work on a new project that, if I remember right, didn't even make it a full season.

Congratulations on joining the ranks of the Browncoats, fans of the show and movie who have an open wound in our lives where Firefly was abruptly cut off. I hope you enjoy the movie also, as it nicely wraps up the series and is very well done.
