Before I ever watched firefly, I knew there was a big internet buzz about. It had a lot of rabid fans singing it's praises, many of whom stated its good point in clear arguments. None of them won me over. Ever. Every fan loves their show, and thinks it's the most wonderful thing in the world. Now, when I watched firefly, I loved it and thought it was the most wonderful thing in the world. Numerous friends who are sci-fi fans don't get. I think they are humorless fools for not loving it, but there's nothing I can do to convince them. Rent it. Borrow it. If your not in love with it twenty minutes into the pilot, you won't have lost much.
