Oh Firefly, why do you have to be so good?

My guilty and nerdy pleasure for the past two weeks has been staying up hacking on Test Run and watching Firefly. So how many times can I watch this series? Let's see:

  1. Once to simply watch the series all the way through and enjoy it. The way I did the first time it aired.
  2. Then a second time to listen to the commentary. Aside from the innane commentary from Inara, it is worth every moment.
  3. Then a third time so that I can see each episode with the new perspective gained from listening to the commentary.
  4. Then perhaps a fourth time, because I wasn't really paying attention all the time, as I was a hack'n.

God, I miss that show. I honestly can't believe Fox canceled a show penned by the screen writer for Toy Story and one of their most popular shows of all time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, while in the same year Fox renewed the despicable Temptation Island for a second season, and introduced a number of new shows - none of which survived to see the next season. Fox showed absolutely no vision with canceling Firefly. Damn them.


If you haven't already, you should watch 'Serenity', the film adaptation of Firefly.

Let's see... how many times have I watched Serenity? More than I probably care to admit.

Five times.

No wait, maybe six.

Oh yeah, eight.

I think.

A lot. I have watched it a lot.
