I feel like Firefly is the Arrested Development of Sci Fi. Everyone who watched it loved it, yet not many people watched it.
Well, I watched it and liked it, but I wouldn't say I loved
it. It was enjoyable, but it didn't really suck me in that much. It does have a very passionate fanbase, though.
As regards the original post, yeah, I think it's worth checking out. Not my favourite sci-fi series, but pretty good nonetheless.
