I was gonna wear my brown shirt to work tomorrow, but I think I'll wear the blue one instead.
Seriously you can't win.
I'm curious the Dagman would you be upset about Chuck's cancellation had it come in it's first season run as much as we Firefly fans are?
Ah, but there's the rub: Firefly was cancelled in its first
season. It's just not usual for shows cancelled in their first season, therefore having a scanty amount of episodes, to have the sort of enduring perpetually renewing interest Firefly's got. So I think the OP is right in noting that it's a tad unusual, 79 episodes is a more natural number for a dedicated fandom than 14.
