For me I started watching it when it first ran on Fox. Like others I missed episodes and cussed very loudly. Even tho it wasn't run in order I was still hooked at the first show. Hooked to the point Friday nights were off limits to anything and everything while Firefly was on. I was quite upset ( read understatement of the century ) when it just " disappeared " . I was hoping it was just a few episodes filmed and would be picked up in the next season as a full season . No luck.
It eventually fell to the wayside but mentioned as a hella good show frequently to my sci fi loving buddys. I didn't have a pc then so I missed the Browncoat uprising at the time.
When the movie came out my buddy told me it was based on an " old " sci fi show that was on tv but since it was years since I had seen it 2 + 2 was not equaling 4. Until........ I found the movie DVD in Walmart. Once I read the back 2 + 2 finally equaled 4 and I was torqued yet again that I missed it on the big screen. I have made up for it by watching it damn near weekly since I got it tho.
It wasn't until I was last minute X-mas shopping that I found 1 lonely box set on the bottom shelf. Being x-mas and all, I had shopped for everyone but myself so off to the register I went with a box set of the BEST DAMN SCI FI SHOW EVER !!!!! Best thing anyone has ever gotten me. I've watched it 5 times or more since x-mas eve and I keep finding things I didn't catch in earlier viewings.
I've learned 2 things from Firefly :
1) FOX sucks
2) FIREFLY IS THE BEST DAMN SCI FI SHOW EVER

When is the next uprising? I think I need to dryclean this coat you gave me before I assualt anything.IS THAT BLOOD????

I swear my snakes watch the show but they never want to talk about the episode.

Welcome aboard. Welcome Home. Now.... read the unfilmed script for "Dead or Alive": http://www.fireflyfans.net/feature.asp?f=45
Watch the extended outtakes:


Then watch the River Tam Sessions:

I remember that when it "disappeared" as you put it, my FOX station here decided to play games with the Browncoats heads and started playing reruns at spreatic points--once I stayed up until 2AM in hopes of a new episode only to see "Train Job" again. I have a special connection with that episode for that reason. Any special episode for you?

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


Welcome to the site and to the browncoat ranks BryonsBoas! Glad to have you here with us. Pull up some virtual space and make yourself right at home.

Be sure to spread the word and introduce the show to everyone that you know. The more people that become fans, the better our odds of getting some sort of continuation of the series.

Take care and keep flyin'!

It's not my story, it's my recruitment story. A dear friend was having radiation treatment. I handed over my loaner set. He says that he felt like 4 pounds of poo in a 2 pound bag. All he could do was lie there and watch TV.

But it was Firefly so it was all, "Look at that shot! What an amazing line! I can't believe they did that! This is the greatest television ever! I'm watching another episode."

His message was, "Why has this been kept from me until now?"

Even as sick as he was, Firefly gave him hope and happiness.

Woman, you are completely off your nut.


Welcome BryonsBoas! Well, you are definitely amoung folk who feel your pain. The best thing you can do is spread the word, enjoy the shininess we have and hope beyond hope the show gets picked up or another BDM. Again, welcome to the site and enjoy all the fellow Browncoat company.

I know you were askin' BryB what his fav. episode was but.... Mine is most definately Out Of Gas. There is nothin' sexier than a hero(or heroine) who can take the pain and still summon up the wrath of the righteous long enough to get it done! Plus I'm a complicated gal, and it was a complicated episode, so we fit ... husband snickers in the background!

He's only just finished the treatment but he's feeling better. Good thoughts and prayers to your chosen deity are always appreciated.

Welcome ByronsBoas! We've got a boatload of folks (and them some!) that feel just as you do. We're here 'cause we love the 'verse. I'd strongly suggest trying everything on the list JadeHand gave, and add the podcasts if you're so inclined - The Signal at http://signal.serenityfirefly.com/, and Firefly Talk at http://fireflytalk.libsyn.com/.

And if you can wait a few months, you'll have another chance to see the Big Damn Movie on the Big Damn Screen - check out http://cantstoptheserenity.com/

Again, welcome!

It's like this. I never watched it while it was on the air. I tend to do that. Like with The X-Files, or House. Never got into them until they've been on for a while. Anyway, I come home from school on a break and my best friend tells me to come over. She had just bought the series on DVD, she let me borrow it. I watched it all in one day. I watched it over and over again and as soon as i got to a store and saw the DVD there. I bought it. Bought the movie too. Watched that as soon as i got home. I got so into it. I almost cried when Book died and I yelled at the TV when Wash died. Then my friend told me it was cancelled and I yelled some more. This series was like nothing i've ever seen. Joss Whedon I salute you.

Welcome, DJToes! Haven't seen you before, so not sure if you've had the official greeting yet.

If not, here's a browncoat from my stock of recycled ones. Brushed clean, of course, but a little the worse for wear. If you can't stand anything used, tackle FollowMal, she has the key to the stock of new virtual coats.

*hands DJToes a slightly patched and only fair-fitting browncoat*

We all share your frustration about the lack of new episodes, but if we keep spreading the word it's sure to happen one day. Meantime, it's good to have you holding the line with us.

I'm pointin' right at it!

Welcome, BryansBoas,
My story starts the same, but I did catch Firefly on the Sci-Fi channel in the summer of 2005. There were commercials for the movie Serenity, so I was there at the theater on the opening night. It is great to see on the big screen.

We're glad you found your way to FFF.net. It's a friendly group of Browncoats. If you ever need anything, just get on the Cortex and send us a wave. There's always someone around.
