I enjoyed Firefly a lot and was disappointed to find out it was only one season long. If you like that one, try Eureka, it's not a 'space' show, but similar humor. I just got season one of the Supernatural on DVD. I have not seen that show before but Amazon thought I would like it....damn Amazon.

Don't know if they are still doing it, but on DirecTV, Firefly was airing on one of the HD channels earlier this year. HDNet, I think. Maybe Universal HD. Those channels are good sources of second runs of recent series in HD, e.g. Smallville, Enterprise ...

Right now on Amazon.com the goldbox deal of the day is the Firefly complete series for $19.99. All 14 episodes.




I picked up the box set for $10 at WalMart about 6 weeks... Not sure if that was a regular price or not, but might be worth a look.

I like that show too. It is one of those "crossover" scifi shows that also appeals to non-scifi folks.

Isn't Firefly from the same guy as Buffy? Joss Whedon? I'm still a huge Buffy fan, and find the character development among the best I've ever seen on TV. As said with the others, though, it's hard to jump into the middle....

I've got Serenity in HD shipping today from Netflix, I haven't seen it or Firefly, being a big SiFi fan I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Yep, Buffy in space, without the vampires but with more guns.

See Firefly first. You have to see Firefly to really understand Serenity--it's not a standalone movie. Unfortunately, it also looks like Joss finished the series with the movie, so I doubt there will be further trips to that particular storyline.

Yep, Firefly is a definite prerequisite. I thought the series started off well, but faltered a bit toward the end. Good premise and dialogue though.

Serenity looks and sounds awesome on HD DVD.

Did anyone see Slither? Nathan Fillion (Mal) plays basically the same character in that, so if you like him in Firefly / Serenity then you'll probably enjoy Slither. I liked the fact that Slither didn't take itself so seriously.

Heh... Amazon has the Firefly series DVDs in the Gold Box today for only $20. Pity I already have it.
