i must be the only one who is eternally grateful to FOX for giving us firefly. i can't imagine any of the other networks even giving it a second look.
Fox dicked around with the schedule. "The Train Job" was the first episode to air and, obviously, it didn't impress you on first viewing. Had they shown Serenity
first it likely would've won you over. Not to mention airing the episodes out of order and the premeptions they just didn't give the show a chance.
But, really, the biggest dick-move was not airing the damn pilot first!
