Actually, I liked the song.  It fit the show and the genre mash (western+space) that was Firefly.

But then again, there is not a big cross over between CW fans and Sci-fi fans. 

That also could of been part of the issue about its viewers, as most sci-fi fans have a knee-jerk reaction to westerns. Many of our fanish kin rejected the show right out, just because it was "western". By the time we could convince them otherwise, it was cancelled. 

Then again, Star Trek was pitched as "Wagon Train in Space". Of course, Trek move far, far, against that listing. So I don't know why anyone would have that reaction.

Hear about this yet?

http://torrentfreak.com/done-the-impossible-torrent/

Quote
Done the impossible is the story behind the rise, fall, and rebirth of the cult TV show Firefly. Firefly was ressurected thanks to efforts of the fans of this popular sci-fi show.

In the documentary “done the impossible” the fans tell their part of this success story. They explain why and how they managed to get their Firefly heroes on the white screen in the popular movie Serenity.

The makers of the documentary offer a free, Creative Commons licensed .torrent download of their film. They state:

    In our opinion, the modern state of copyright is counter productive to creativity and free culture. It puts unnatural restraints on “fair use”, hinders the creative process and has fundamentally destroyed an entire industry before it was even born.

Personally I’m impressed with the quality of this documentary, I highly recommend this one if you are interested in the story behind Firefly and Serenity.

Heard about it, but didn't get to it until now, so I had to download it and see it immediately.

A very positive feeling is coming from that documentary.  :up:

I bumped Firefly to the top of my netflix cue. Can you believe I haven't seen it yet. ;)

Loved Serenity, but never thought too much about seeing the rest till after watching the documentary.

Might have to become a browncoat. :)

I loved Firefly, but the end of Serenity really turned me off.  I just hate what they did my two favorite characters.  It was a good movie overall, though.

If you watch that Done the Impossible thing they put out, they explain a bit why they killed 'em.

Firefly, the series:
Setting: 4/5
Storyline: 4.5/5
Thrill: 3/5
Overall: 4/5
Decent enough, though it did make me yawn now and then.

Serenity, the movie:
Setting: 4/5
Storyline: 5/5
Thrill: 4.5/5
Overall: 4.5/5
Great movie! Gotta love a director that has the balls to kill off characters. KILL YOUR DARLINGS!

That is rule number one, folks.

Ching Gao! I reckon, we have a number of rabid fans here. Now, it is time to pay true homage to the show.  It is time to put together some shiny Firefly related submissions.  Ships, NPCs, shiny tech, retro tech, and worlds, and so on.  I figure there are 8 active fans here.  I figure we can each put out at least two submissions related to Firefly and Serenity in relatively short order. 

Just make sure to put For Firefly Campaign/ Universe as one of the first lines of the text AND to put Firefly in the free-text.
