Yeah I had to double my tea consumption. I'd forgotten that completely. I did so enjoy it though and I'm looking fwd to the actual first review post, discussion and subsequent series!!

It's kind of hard to have a marathon about that many episodes. Grumble grumble grumble.
Um. What?
13 episodes. The marathon ran all day from moring until the special at 10PM. What was hard about that?
My point exactly. What special?
The cast reunion roundtable discussion and panel at ComicCon, shown as a 1 hour special at 10PM on the science Channel.

Still not sure what you're driving at - was it too many episodes or too few for a marathon?

Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch

I have the series and movie on a Zune and often let the series play while I'm working.

The marathons are great because I'll occasionally catch something that I've missed. One thing that I only noticed a few months ago was in the pilot, close to the beginning ... Nice little detail.

I have the reunion show (Firefly: Browncoats Unite) on the DVR.

Here's a nice little promo music video that SCI did for the marathon. If you're spoiler-averse, please don't watch ...

Hulu just has "Safe" for free, so I'm watching that. Funky language, but it can be followed fairly readily.

Dang. Not the best episode to start with. Not really representative of the show. I thought the whole hillbilly thing was just... well, stupid.

Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch

Huh when I looked they were all there, but maybe I wasn't looking closely enough.

Miss Lemon that's great!! I look forward to the review kicking off once you've watched it.

Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch

I'm sorry lurok, I had no time to watch my new DVD this evening, because I had some urgent business to attend to... buying new light switches.

But seriously, I wouldn't mind at all if you decided to post a review of the pilot before Thursday.

BTW, my Pinot Grigio was a bit blant.

Care to share or do we have to guess?

No worries (a trifle antipodean but you discern the sentiment )

Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch

For the life of me, I'll never understand why Fox chose to show "The Train Job" first instead of the Pilot. That's probably one of the reasons I didn't give this show much attention when it originally aired. "Cowboys in space with wooden furniture and trains..." seemed a bit silly.

The Pilot - Serenity - does quite a bit to establish the necessary details of the series. Settlements on numerous worlds hosting colonists with literally nothing more than the clothes on their back (thus explaining the simplistic furniture), a defeated soldier turned smuggler, and the whole Simon/River story which is the real core of Firefly.

One thing I caught last week (or was it 2 weeks?) when I watched "Serenity" was Book's reaction at the end of the episode. Book is noticeably disturbed, as any good religious Shepherd would be, at the killing of the Fed agent and how Mal and the crew live just outside the law. Yet, later, we'll learn that Book wasn't always a noble religious shepherd. He's had a dark life. The later fleshing out of his character kinda contradicts this scene in "Serenity." Book shouldn't be having a crisis of conscience.

Of course, he could be acting in order to preserve his cover.
