Self-depreciating humor. Your stock rises with me.

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

Wonder where the series would have gone if it hadn't been cancelled? No doubt we'd have seen Jubal Early again. Probably Niska and his thugs, too. I think River would have returned to normalcy eventually as the series went on (much like Joss' plan for the sadly-not-to-be Angel season 6 with vestiges of Fred coming out of Ilyria's personality).

God I miss this show.

I think we'd probably run into YoSafBridg at least once a season.

YoSafBridg probably would have become a recurring character, a thorn in Mal's side, ala Ethan Rayne in Buffy

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

Somewhat unrelated note, but after going through Firefly/Serenity last month, I decided to start watching ABC's Castle to at least get a semi-Mal fix. It's a decent methadone, but the first act in Season 2, Episode 6 was a dose of the real deal.

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

Yep. Since I was going through them all to catch up for the new season, it was a double shock. I think I missed some of the back and forth due to that. I think they threw in a Buffy joke as well, though I never watched that series. I'll have to rewatch the episode, it was pretty good all around. And I'm generally not a fan of cop dramas.

"Vampire Weekend" is the name of the ep, which like I said is #6 in season 2.

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

I just finished my rewatch, again, last night. It has the same effect on me everytime; wanting to see more. It is such a travesty that this show got canceled without giving it a chance. Their universe seemed so interesting and well worth exploring even further. It was refreshing not having an alien of the week, over the top and unrealistic space battles, and a believable human future. Perhaps, someday, someone will get the idea to remake this series. However, it probably wouldn't be the same without the original cast of characters.

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

^I honestly thought, while watching it recently, that it HAD to be cancelled. There was no way something this good could last.

Of course, I did notice that the show was actually getting better towards the end, but I try to push that out of my mind.

What would have happened with the Blue Sun Group?



Would it be like Pepsi? or Blackwater? or Serco?

Re: Firefly ep by ep; rewatch and reviews

Just watching the epic mini-series Gettysburg, based on the Killer Angels which inspired Joss to write Firefly. Hard not to be moved by it, especially the ending, in a war which pitches brother against brother it ends with the Chmaberlain brothers finding each other having survived the chaos of battle and embracing
