Please don't flame me! I've managed to download the main credits for Firefly from Kazaa and I'm really lookign forward to seeing the full show, but unfortunately I'm in the UK...

So... does anyone know of any places that have the Train Job up yet?

Thanks in advance

Rob

You mean, that hasn't been shut down by Fox's lawyers? Good luck! That's why peer-to-peer networks like Kazaa exist: there's no central node to sue.

JOSH, WHERE'S MY CHECK???!!!

I heard that someone downloaded the complete VCD and SVCD versions from a newsgroup called
news.binaries.multimedia.scifi

Not that I would infringe copyright o'course. I had to pay £300 and catch a plane to the US to see the show myself.


I'm a Brit too.

Shouldn't that be alt.binaries.multimedia.scifi?

Not that I would infringe either. In fact didn't I see you on the plane?

LOL, thanks :)

Maybe I'll see you both when I catch the plane next week to catch the show?

Think I'll let the joke go now....

A friend downloaded the train job for me from kazaa. And it was in widescreen. But the other eps were that he found were not.

Google "firefly train job download"

It's on a certain German Buffy site which only has "The Train Job". I am amazed that ME hasn't managed to shut it down yet, but as it's survived so far I don't think it'll do any harm if I tell you how to get there seeing as it's not exactly particularly well hidden.

I wouldn't judge the show on it, though - IMO it's by far the worst episode of the series so far.

I know that many people download shows such as Buffy, Angel, Enterprise, Firefly, Odyssey 5, Stargate Farscape etc through mIRC. It takes a fair bit to get the hang of though. And you have to know what channels to go to.

Myself, I'm stuck on a 28k speed connection.

Plus, I live in Australia. I doubt that firefly will be on here in quite a while.

Having said that, I like the first three episodes and want to see more, but the air travel is killing me. ;)

Thank God for kazaa. I know that downloading episode can be a touchy subject, but it is the way a great show like Firefly can develop a world wide fan base and get the support it deserves. I have seen the first five episodes as well as the unaired pilot Serenity (Dam those weekly flights from Australia to America and back can be tedious) and I’ve shown a lot of the episode to my friend in Australia one of my friends who has seen every episode that I have seen loves the show as much as I do and all the other three friends who watched The Train Job either liked it a lot or thought it showed a lot of potential.

JONDUPONT the certain German Buffy site you speak of is www.buffy-tv.de and it use to have every single episode of Buffy and Angel to download until recently in the form of clips but not anymore.

PROTOTYPE what part of Australia do you live in I’m from Melbourne.

Heck, I download them. I'm only gonna watch them again anyway when they hit the UK, so I figure I'm OK ethically. But of course everyone says that :D. Way I see it, though, is that if no-one picks up the show, then this is the only way I'll have been able to see them. Once the show's future is a bit more assured, and I know it's not gonna disappear, I'll shift off the newsgroups and wait for them to air here. The thing I've always found about Joss Whedon shows is that they turn into a social event - when Buffy and Angel are on Sky One, all my local friends get together to watch it, and make a night of it. So TV is definitely the better experience. But if it flops, there's no guarantee it'll ever make it over here, and if you've missed the copies on the newgroups, it's a lot of work getting hold of them again. And the thing I've come to realise is that this show is so good that even if it flops, it's worth having watched it. Hell, I'd buy a DVD of it now if there was one (how many episodes to a Farscape twin box? Seven or eight?)

So don't think badly of me Mutant Enemy. I only do it 'cos I love you

Cheers,
Kithkill

Unless they put it in their profiles then no. And this should have been a new thread.

And thanks to you, I tossed my email in my profile.

www.buffy-tv.de isn't the site I was talking about, and they're still putting everything up AFAIK (normally only 60% of the new eps, though). They've definitely still got TTJ up.

Check out http://fireflyeps.dyndns.org/ ...they have VCD format versions of all the episodes. Also check out Kazaa, WinMX, eDonkey2000, or a slew of other file-sharing programs for more. Also, check out would be http://www.zeropaid.com ...which is the best site for finding the p2p program that suits you best. You can also use newsgroup channel alt.binaries.multimedia.scifi or IRC channel #firefly. Or you could always check me out on WinMX, I have all the episodes in SVCD format. They range in size from around 800-850 mb and when encoded and burned onto a high density cd, play as flawless copies in your dvd player. Anyone who needs some help downloading or burning or getting codecs or with newsgroups or with IRC or finding programs for these things; whatever you need to get those episodes, just email me at power_of_zero@hotmail.com, there's a good chance i can help you, or at least point you in the right direction.

Viva la FIREFLY

Is there any way to thank the person who put up the direct download page? I don't want to give his identity away or something (God knows Fox isn't above petty lawsuits and shutting down websites), but man I just have to thank the guy who makes it a little easier on the DL-ing fan.
If so, e-mail me at rorshach_1982@yahoo.com

thanks
