Re: Firefly/Serenity

Firefly hits a very specific stylistic sweet spot for a pretty small number of people (see Serenity's mediocre performance), and it's great that people enjoy it. But there are shows out there with much better writing, acting, and deeper maturity; those shows just don't tend to involve spaceships. At its core, Firefly, like Enterprise and Smallville, was a fluffy popcorn program, with a budget that was almost certainly never sustainable to begin with.
I think Firefly had some of the best writing I've ever seen on tv. Not in a Shakespearean way, but smart. Clever. Funny in the right places.

Wash: That sounds like something out of science-fiction.
ZoŽ: We live in a spaceship, dear.
