Yes. I mourn the loss.

We watched War Stories again the other day. Excellent episode :)

I may be a bit warped, but Jaynestown is one of my favorite episodes. =)

I bought the series on DVD a while back so I can enjoy them whenever I want . . . and I feel another Firefly marathon coming on. ;-)

Jayne. The man they call 'Jayne.' :)

When I saw how well Joss Whedon's Avengers did in its opening two weeks (and rightly so), I found myself daring to hope for Serenity II, but I don't think it's financially viable. Studios want huge potential profits and I can't see them greenlighting another Firefly project.

More's the pity :(

I doubt it too. It's been almost 7 years since the movie, and a lot of the actors have moved on to other things. But there's still Much Ado About Nothing, Dr. Horrible 2, and Wastelanders coming, so we'll get plenty more Joss.

OMG, YES!

This show was the reason I expected the Avengers to be awesome, and I was right. The dialogue shines and every episode was so much fun... *sigh*

There were some classic Whedon moments in Avengers

Oh, yes. That was a fine show, it was... No pictures from it on my list here, so here's my response...

Absolutely. They'll always be my heroes. <3

I always think of Jayne as a distant descendant of Howard Wallowitz from The Big Bang theory :)

Haha, I've never seen it. Totally over my head. :P And I'm not the biggest of Jayne's fans in the slightest. I think Mal should have dumped him on some planet after what he did in Ariel.

But he does send money to his old mom, so he can't be all bad :)

Pssht. It's a fact that all characters who wear hats in Firefly are evil...and his old mom sent him a hat! :P

I assume you're okay with bonnets :)

...That was like...three minutes of wearing a hat, if that. :P Mal is not evil, he is just...passionate about his hatred for the Alliance.

Plus, it's MAL. I'd take Mal over Jayne any day, night, or century. :P I dunno, I just don't like Jayne...or even River that much. But I think that's because she just turns into this crazy killing machine.

It might be heresy but I preferred the movie. It was everything the show tried to be but never quite reached.

the movie was good too. I believe I saw it at the cinema four times :)

Me miss it bad. My sixteen-year-old son, who has watched the DVD set with me multiple times is known to go into occasional fits of grief over the loss.

Ladysaotome, that isn't heresy, it's blasphemy. Ack. Choke. Urgh.

Yep. Though I confess, I didn't see Firefly when it was on TV--I was working nights at the time--and didn't discover it until 2007 on DVD. At which point we bought the full set and movie.

I got the DVD set after seeing the Serenity trailer, from there we started watching Angel Season 5, then Buffy and the previous Angel seasons.
