I did. Loved the show, but haven't revisited it since the film. The film killed all the positive feelings I had for the show.
That's how I felt after a certain character's sudden death, but on second viewing I got over it (or I settled in with it) and now I love SERENITY as a full extension of the series, and I actually watch it more often than the series (which is saying an awful lot.)
I do think the VFX in the film were often not quite as good as in the series (they just got too close to the ship for it to hold up in CG), but even if FF had had crummy fx I wouldn't have been upset, as that wasn't what I came for.
