Great seriez. Odd that there wuznt a thred for it here alredy, especially considering it's prequel seriez haz wun.

In case you havent seen the entire series yet, Mark Shepard had a major part in 6 episodez. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0791968/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t50

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I can't recall, but I would think it had been discussed here before. I did like it for most of the series, and I can recommend the first two and a half seasons (almost) without reservation (excluding the episodes "Black Market" and "The Woman King"). But I think it went off the rails at the reveal of the Final Five. There were a few good episodes in the fourth season, but I wasn't satisfied with the finale.

Another reason this fits in the "Firefly Alumni Series" forum is that Jane Espenson was a co-producer for a couple of seasons, and she wrote five episodes, as well as writing the prequel movie "The Plan" and the "Face of the Enemy" webisodes. And of course Zoic was responsible for the FX in the early going, with the inclusion of a Firefly in the pilot episode.

Kagan who? The creator of this site is Haken.

No, he does not manage threads in the sense of moving them from one forum to the other. This is truly an Independent site, with users placing threads in various forums without much regard to consistency. "General Discussion" is supposed to be for Firefly discussions, but you will find threads there that should be in "Other Science Fiction Series," "Talk Story," or somewhere else.

I thought BSG was a pretty good show. It never really sucked me in all the way. And the season where they start out at that new settlement or whatever was pretty awful IMHO. I know the ending is controversial but I thought it was pretty good. Overall definitely an above average show.

Expired, forgotten, spoiled rotten.


This show was definitely discussed extensively on FFF.net back when it aired. I'm pretty sure someone started a new thread for every new episode on the original date of air.

This has been tops on my re-watch list. I think it managed to bridge several subgenres within scifi successfully and I for one don't have any problem with the ending. (Well, maybe one starbuck shaped plot hole.) It managed to be character driven, suspense and action, as well as topical. It had the flash bang and the morality play. I enjoyed it a lot and hope it isn't lost to the ages.

I pray for one last landing,
on the globe that gave me birth.
Let me rest my eyes on the fleecy skies
and the cool, green hills of Earth.

It was a great series that I enjoyed each and every time I watched it. As a matter of fact I watch the first part of a two-part episode last night.

The ending would of been a lot better if they found the Earth all used up and abandoned...
