Re: I finally watched Firefly! (SPOILERS)
^No, airing the series' worst episode that they threw together in a weekend first can't have hurt it at all.
I thought Safe was their worst ep. not The Train Job, the series just didn't have a wide appeal, Sci-Fi aired the show in order and it still didn't grab people.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
