Default Firefly: Best cancelled Tv show ever.

Time for some thrilling heroics

Ja, us Firefly fans are probably never going to let it go. Tragic I realise, but true.

I've been meaning to check out this show for a while, and it looks like I will be getting Season 1 on DVD for Christmas hopefully. But then, I'm behind on loads of TV Shows, having not seen Smallville, Supernatural, and have only seen the first episodes of The Walking Dead and Arrow.

Missing Firefly and The Walking Dead for drivel like Smallville and Supernatural should be a crime. lol

The walking dead is exceptional viewing, smallvile is utter site after season 2, im watching arrow , its better than smallvile, but i do keep expecting him to say "im batman" for some reason??? i have watched firefly, and its ok but i wouldnt say its the best cancelled tv show ever, granted it was ditched too soon, but there are plenty of good us tv shows that get canned far too early.

Firefly was freaking awesome. I was hoping Joss Whedon would revive it in the future, but that was really just psychotic fanboy wishing (also, he's doing an Avengers TV show).

Oh well. It will live on forever in cosplays.

Firefly is not cancelled, it is simply on an extended "break" until I find a way of convincing the useless Fox executive fucks who placed on it on that "break" that it is time that the "break" is over.

This convincing may or may not involve cars being destroyed and letterboxes attacked with blow torches.

Never watched Firefly. The best cancelled TV show ever is Farscape. May the bastards who cancelled it suffer horribly for their crime against science-fiction.

Firefly > Farscape.

Seriously. Watch it, and then disagree.

Oh, and that video has been on my youtube favourites for the last 6 months.

You know how people are always going on about things that should be in the National Curriculum, but aren't? Firefly is one of those things. So is Transformers.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Favourite line in Firefly - Jaine: "I'll be in my bunk..."

Also BoK, there only was 1 season, so if you get that you'll be good to go hah

Problem is things like Firefly are very expensive to make and if they aren't a smash hit they struggle to make their money back.

I never quite got the whole "cowboys in space" thing. It was OK but didn't quite do it for me.
