Having heard about Firefly, but never having watched it, I posted a thread here a lttle while back to get some info on the show and upcoming movie. I took a poster's advce and bought the DVD set.

I am now about halfway through the series, and I just had to pop back in here to say, "I'm hooked!" The writing is great; you really care about the characters, and I love the humour that is thrown in. (I just watched the episode where River becomes terrified of the shepherd's untamed hair and it made me laugh out loud). Anyway, I'm not going to stick around too long just now, cause I don't want to get "spoiled", but I'll be back again when I'm done watching them all. Can't wait for the movie!

Welcome!

Important points to remember:

Pace yourself.

Stay hydrated.

Between episodes, get up and move around. There is such a thing as "positional asphyxia".

Remember, we're here for you :>)

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Welcome to the family Fanofscifi. You will find that you will become as hopelessly addicted to all things Firefly as the rest of us have.

Enjoy the DVD set & come back soon to discuss with us.

As my fellow Browncoats have noted above, you will become hopelessly obsessed with Firefly as the rest of us have. It's a curse (because the show was cancelled) and a blessing (because it's the best thing on TV in 30 years - REALLY!) Apparently you haven't even seen Out of Gas yet(one of my favorites) so you are in for a major treat. Anyway, welcome to this land. We are all here for you if we can help in any way.

Welcome Welcome!

And let me tell you this thing, which no one bothered to tell me for MONTHS AND MONTHS. (Do you all feel guilty?

On the last CD, under special features, if you go to "Joss Sings the Ballad of Serenity", hit the left button on your remote and then hit enter when the little scrolly thing on the left side turns yellow, you will get a special treat!

Serenity, First Officer of Destiny

What you call "positional asphyxia" I've always just considered "numb butt".

But doesn't it sound classier when you say it my way?
