    I saw firefly the tv show on scifi one day can't remember details but i loved the opening song and loved the character interaction and though their where rebles and pitates they had this bond and code of honor and loved the way Mel looked out for his crew. i loved sea quest that ws a great show i need to get the dvd of that some day but the best scifi show every was B5, even after great shows fire fly, startrek, Sea quest, SG1 and other good scifi shows to me none of them are better then B5.

The first time I saw Firefly, my dad was watching it on TV, and I thought it was another one of those stupid Science Fiction shows he always watched, but later on (in a few years) I saw an episode and absolutely loved it! Couldn't get enough, and to add to it, my brother bought the complete series *one season*, and watched every episode in rapid succession.

    Another one of my favorites is SG-1 too Guile, it was really cool back on Showtime, and then they moved it to the Sci-fi channel, and then they made Atlantis, which I thought was a poor rip-off of the original, and now I come to find they are making a soap-freakin'-opera about it, kinda like they did with Galactica. Geez, down the drain... Oh, and I loved the Serenity movie and also Mystery Science Theater 3000. It was corny but fun.
    Loved MST3K! But only the ones with Joel Hodgekiss. That guy that they brought in to replace him sucked.

    I actually got into Firefly/Serenity because my RPG group was going to do a campaign for the Serenity RPG game and I wanted to just do the research, so I watched the show and I'm hooked now.

    In case you're curious, my character in that game is a Mr. Universe-type Cortex hacker because our Firefly has a Cortex comm relay attached to it and I'm the one who keeps it running. (Hey, it helps the ship pay the bills).

    good lord, so many good sci fi shows over the years...

    grew up watching TOS, TNG, B5, SQ:DSV, ect. Firefly came out shortly after Farscape was gutted, fell in love with Jewl, Morenia, and Summer. And who could forget Yosaphbrig .... *ahem*

    Anyway, been a sci fi geek my whole life and when a good show came on one of the few TV channels we do get(havnt had cable since I was 12) we had to watch it.

    Became a Browncoat after the series was cancelled (I never knew when it was on). I went to see Serenity at the Alamo Drfthouse here in Austin and from that moment on, I was in absolute love with the show!

    I was browsing through my roommates movie collection on his computer (he had like 1.5Tb of movies) and saw Serenity and said "I think I've heard of this, any good?" He instantly replied, "Yes, and you'll want this too" and copied a folder called "Firefly" to me. Watched the movie, then went straight to Firefly and watched every episode in two days. Since then I've become obsessed with Joss and have watched every Buffy/Angel and Dr. Horrible.

    Wow... How weird... I think that they were showing Serenity at the Alamo Drafthouse North (Lake Creek/183) the night my RPG group decided to go see the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. We saw all the merch and that was when we decided to switch from Exalted to Serenity.

    Haha, seems everyone has a similiar story. I had watched the movie Serenity and told one of my friends about it. He looked at me, grinned and then gave me his Firefly dvd set. I couldn't get enough and I still can't get enough of the show. Oh, and Dr. Horrible's Sing along blog was an awesome video Wink
