Hi Everybody!

Well - I haven't been HERE in AGES... (o.k., except lurking every now and then, fiending for Firefly news... :D)

BUT - I just had to post to say - IT CAME TODAY!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

My disks finally came! I've been on order w/Amazon.com since day one, and was SOO annoyed that Suncoast put out a preorder at a better price, but I didn't release my amazon order - and STILL people got theirs before me. :( But hey, water under the bridge - I got mine!!!! :D :D :D

Grr argh, I just got off the phone with UPS and there seems to be a problem with my amazon order so it's not getting here till tommorow at least. so impatient!!!
The UPS guy said there was some sort of delay in getting the package to them. Evil Amazon...How come things never go smooth?
oh well I guess I'll go keep myself occupied with my well worn tapes 'till they arrive

Best Buy hasn't even shipped it, as predicted, and Amazon did ship, but it ain't here, as predicted.

Can't find any shelf copies left around here neither.

Not happy right now.

I've had my widescreen tv professionally calibrated, and this is some of the best picture quality on a dvd that I've ever seen. I never saw Firefly on TV, I watched all the episodes on my computer. This is a brand new experience, and now each episode seems like a mini-movie. This is great! Gotta pace myself though. :)

Bless the pointed little heads at Amazon and UPS. Mine came today, too. Price was no option in this case. And...since I missed a couple of episodes (circumstances beyond my control, etc.) and, as usual, there is less than squat on the box, I am off for an evening of fun!

Happy, Shiney Holidays to y'all!!!!

For those lucky browncoats who already have the DVD, can you give us any details about the commentaries, explanation of the episode ordering, deleted scene descriptions, etc. in a "spoilers thread" to hold over us poor sods who are still waiting for amazon to ship our DVDs?

Grr!! Silly me! i had mine shipped home (don't ask!) because I wasn't sure how long I'd have to stick around at school. Turns out I wont be leaving until the 18th or the 19th at least! I'm trying to decide if it's worth having my mom send them to me here so i can interrupt my exams with firefly marathons.

Git mine-can't watch. I have school and homework, and since it's before the holidays, we get EXTRA homework. Can't watch, so annoying.

I've only heard great things about the DVDs from the people who've already received them.

As for me - I'm still DVD-less! Amazon shipped them to me on Sunday, so I'm just waiting for them to wing their way to the UK!

Sounds like you need to get your priorities straight!!

I just took my last final this morning. I managed to watch the extras last night. I'm gonna lock myself in my house this afternoon and marathon the rest of the set. Ahhhh....life is good.

Got my shipping notice today. They're coming via UPSP, so I don't have to worry about waiting around for UPS and wondering how many tries it will take to get them! They're due to arrive anywhere between the 13th-16th. I hope it's earlier than that - sometimes I get really lucky with USPS!!

I'm on pins and needles waiting!!!!!

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


Picked up the 6 copies I had preordered from Sun Coast last night. I am planning on a Firefly viewing party this weekend. The other 5 copies are for Xmas gifts.

Stayed up till 3:30 am this morning watching the un-aired episodes... it was just too good not to watch, and when it was over, I saw no reason to sleep when I have to wake up at 5 am anyway for work. Spent the remaining two hours going over the Extras. hehehe

I have to say, the only bad thing about this DVD set is that it'll probably make you pretty depressed, because it's a constant reminder that the greatest show ever got canceled halfway through the first season.

Actually, until I got the DVD set today, I actually avoided watching the episodes I had on tape, because every time I did, I would get so depressed afterwards.

Anyways, off to watch more Special Features...

Well, yes. It wil be a paradox. Making you happy when watching, yet also making you sad. Just watch, and keep it alive.

AAAUUUUGH!!!!!

The ONE time in the past year and a half that the postman doesn't leave my package by the door!!!!

I would have had my DVDs today!!!!!!! (whimper)

I'm hoping I have enough time at lunch tomorrow to pick them up, or I'm gonna be mighty unhappy!

On the plus side: Regular mail took overnight to get here from Amazon--that's incredible!

I ended up going to the post office early this morning before work to get them.

Sweated it out in line, hoping the package was there,and that they *hurry up!* so I wasn't late for work!

Luckily, I was not late and I have my precious DVDs in my possession!

Guess what *I'll* be doing tonight! :big grin:

I was planning on picking the set up some time over the hollidays, but all the talk here got me anxious to get my hands on them. Went to three stores yesterday (in Halifax) and they were all sold out... Tommorrow the search begins again!

I just got mine yesterday and stayed up all night watching the eps with commentary. My only dissappointment was there wasn't enough commentary, only about half the eps have it and Adam Baldwin didn't do one! :(

Other than that it was amazing, I was really overwhelmed by how many cast and crew stated outright that this show was the single greatest thing they have ever done. Also the sheer volume of crap they had to deal with from Fox! It's astounding that it even made it on the air!

Select to view spoiler:


Alan (Wash) stole the big red button they put on the bridge of Serenity during Out Of Gas that Mal was going to use to call back the shuttles when help came. When the show was cancelled and Joss was trying to get it back on the air Alan sent the button to Joss with a note saying if he got it back on just press the button and they all would come back.


When I heard this I got so choked up, it reminded me of when Ron Glass said he looked forward to the day when he could look back on his time on Firefly and not break out in tears. I feel the same way!

I hate it when that happens! I was waiting for a parcel a few weeks ago. It was a Friday and I was home from work. I decided to pop out of the house for ten minutes (literally) and guess when the postman decided to knock with my parcel? That's right! I had to go all the way down to our local sorting office to get the damn thing - but I couldn't do so until the postman got back to the main office with it!

My DVDs have not arrived yet. I have a horrible feeling they are going to incur customs charges - in which case, I'll have to go down to the sorting office to pick them up. And I can't do that until Friday!!

Hang in there! The payoff is SOOOOOO worth it!

I've only watched Serentity with and without the commentary, The Train Job with commentary, War Stories with the commentary, the Gag Reel, the deleted scenes and (for the first time) Trash.

Absolute heaven! I am LOVING the commentaries!!

I just loved how Joss and Nathan were goofing around during Serenity!

After watching Trash, I'm now back to being extremely angry with F*x for cancelling this show!!!
