Firefly intro remixed...80's style.

You Browncoats are slipping.

I don't think I've ever seen anything with so much win yet so much fail at the same time.

For some inexplicable reason, poor Simon didn't even make the cut despite plenty of opportunities to shorten other sequences to get him in.

That was very creative. Sucked eggs, but in a very stylish and professional way.

That was awesome. Definite fail not including Simon, though. There was plenty of room in there for him.

And I'm pretty sure they got Book's first name wrong.

I don't recall seeing a number of those FX shots before.

Funny, but not as good as Space 2261:

I'd say the mixed intro looked like something from 1990 or at least around the time of "Tek War"

Airwolf meets Fringe's 80s retro intro with a bit of rock music thrown in?

I sometimes think about how many cool and fun and interesting creations we would have missed out on if video rips had never been made possible.

I don't know why, but I got an "Airwolf" vibe from it too which is weird considering I haven't seen anything related to Airwolf in at least 15 or 20 years.

Don't worry about Simon, people, there's a reason he didn't appear. He had his own spinoff-

Simon Tam M.D.

Brilliant stuff

I'm not sure I want to know how that cast was assembled.
