Happy to help!

How many years have you been a Firefly fan?
(Let's see... Firefly came out in 2002, so...) 4

How many DVD sets (Firefly only) have you purchased? (include gifts)
5

Approximately how many Firefly converts have you made? (If you don't know exactly, give your best estimate)
24+
(One of the sets I bought went to an college-student online-friend. We had an agreement: I'd buy him the DVDs so he could check out the show, and he'd see that the DVDs ended up getting circulated around campus. Last I heard, the disks had collected at least a dozen fans just in his dorm, and the disks had moved on to another dorm.)

Just for fun, how did you first discover Firefly?
Heard the initial buzz on forums talking about Angel and Buffy, and watched the first airing of Train Job.

Read an article about Serenity in the UK sci fi magazine SFX (who Joss loves! ) They stated that you really needed to see the series before the movie, so i gave up my only chanceto see it on the big screen () But then went and brought it a couple of days afterwards.

Hope it helps and GOOD LUCK!

I heard about it on and off on my lj friends-list and then saw the trailer advertised online. I watched it and was inspired to read a Firefly quotes website and... loved it! So I first got episodes from an online friend and then later bought the DVD set and the rest is history.

first discovered - I saw a couple of snatches of different episodes when they first aired and was aware of it, but never got round to watching properly until after the movie came out, when I just had to!

Isn't sanity really a one trick pony, anyway?I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking! But when you're good and crazy...ooh hoo hoo hoo... the skys the limit!

- Four years plus (since the show first aired).
- Six sets of Firefly (including gifts).
- Approximately a dozen converts, though the exact number is impossible to determine (some of my efforts have been in online fora and I don't always get feedback).
- Discovered it through a preview article that described the show, then watched the first broadcast (The Train Job). I don't recall where I saw that article, or even whether it was online or in print.

Back when Firefly was on fox a friend who was a buffy angel fan told me about a new scifi series by the creator of buffy, me not being a buffy fan blew it off, i watched train job but part way through it and turned to watch something else, after that i forgot about it until my friend told me about the dvd, i bought the dvd because i didnt want to hear him break my balls about it anymore, the dvd sat and collected dust for a long time until the same friend told me about the BDM so i finally caved and watched the entire series in a marathon session (except objects in space, i just didnt want it to end). from then on i was hooked and a fan, I didnt really start frequenting this site until the first of this year though....

Many of the members of the Traveller Mailing List talked a great deal about how awesome the show was so I decided to check it out. However not willing to just take their word for it and not wanting to spend $50 sight unseen for the DVDs I attempted to rent it from my neighborhood supermegavideostore. They did not have it. And since they have proven on many occasions to not have movies I really like I thought then that I could take a chance on purchasing the set. Best $50 bucks I didn't have that I ever spent.

Saw the trailer for the movie, thought it was hilarious. Before Serenity came out on dvd, SciFi ran a marathon. Since I knew it was connected, I watched the whole thing and was hooked.

Less than one.

How many DVD sets (Firefly only) have you purchased? (include gifts)
None. Both sets I own were gifts from other fans.

Approximately how many Firefly converts have you made? (If you don't know exactly, give your best estimate)
Only two so far.

(Optional) Just for fun, how did you first discover Firefly?
I first discovered it back in 2002 when my father watched it and tried to get me involved. At the time, I was engrossed in a Friday night card group and was only able to catch a few minutes here or there. I meant to see Serenity but never was able to arrange a babysitter. I borrowed my dad's copy of Firefly that he got for Christmas and was hooked. He, in turn, purchased the Firefly set for my husband and I.

I have been a Firefly fan for a year now (though it seems much longer)

I have purchased one DVD set

I have five converts so far and have plans for a sixth!

I discovered Firefly last fall thanks to the SciFi channels Firefly marathon to create hype for the BDM Serenity! I haven't been the same since.

Once you've been in Serenity you never leave. You find a way to live in it.

Depends on what you mean by convert. If you mean an active fan that participates on web forums, converts others, etc. then it's probably only a handful (say five). If you mean those I got to watch the show, I'd say a few dozen.

There was a post about Joss Whedon's new Sci-Fi project on slashdot before the show aired that first got me interested (I hadn't been a Buffy/Angel fan before Firefly so I didn't hear about it through those channels)

WE HAD GONE THROUGH OUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE'S SUPPLY OF BUFFY, ANGEL, THE SOPRANOS, THE WIRE, THE SHIELD, MI-5...A FRIEND HAD BEEN RECOMMENDING FIREFLY FOR YEARS AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO WATCH THAT WEEKEND...AND WE WERE INSTANTLY HOOKED.

Much appreciated,

My husband is a huge Buffy fan. He used to watch Buffy all the time and I groaned a self pity groan when he talked about Buffy. I went into another room when he watched Buffy for half a day. Then he got Firefly and I hoped it wouldn't be like another Buffy. I talked about Firefly ever since he brought the show home.

How many years have you been a Firefly fan?

I was a fan of Firefly when it first aired. I've been one ever since.

How many DVD sets (Firefly only) have you purchased? (include gifts)

2

Approximately how many Firefly converts have you made? (If you don't know exactly, give your best estimate)

Roughly? About 30. Including my in-laws.

(Optional) Just for fun, how did you first discover Firefly?

Saw the commercials on TV. My wife and I were already Whedon fans via the Buffy Verse, figured we'd give this one a shot too. Saw the Train Job and the rest is history.

1. Less than one year.
2. Just the one.
3. At least six and I'm working on it. See my thread http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=24871#401331
4. I discovered it by accident whilst browsing for something that might be worth seeing; I hired Serenity and enjoyed it enough that I was willing to give Firefly a go - by the end of the pilot, I was hooked.

one

Three, with a fourth being given away at Thanksgiving

Three? I'm about to work on two more, but the people I know just can't deal with the fact that it's labeled as Sci-Fi

(Optional) Just for fun, how did you first discover Firefly?

My little brother, and my parents, begged me to watch it with them for over a year - the night before I moved across the country I consented (and then stayed up all night so I could watch every episode). I was one of those converts that took a lot of effort and just fell completely in love once I saw it. Kind of like me and romance ...
