Never stopped laughing.
Just bought adhesive ducks for my new bathroom.

Have to admit i've never seen firefly despite recomendations. :oops:

Is it worth it Dave
Well worth it its the mix of western and sci-fi that you wish star wars was now your an adult! There is only 14 episodes plus the film that came out 5 years after the series was cancelled. Both series and film are awesome and so unpredictable and have such amazing complex characters. If you're a fan of buffy and angel, its the same creator, Joss Whedon. So excellence is assured! Also my girlfriend loves it even though the sometimes baddies, the reavers, scare her!

Cheers. I'd seen firefly on Play.com for about twelve quid and might give it a go. They've the spin off film as well.

Pip.

I've got both on DVD if you want to borrow them?

I've seen about 4 episodes of Firefly, and couldn't get into it.

Must try again one of these days!!

I loved both the series and the film, but my girlfriend at the time hated it. She couldn't get over the fact that for a sci-fi series they spend a lot of time being wild west cowboys
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I don't know why I couldn't get into it, as I love Saint Joss of Whedon's stuff.

Plus, I get to watch Nathan Fillion, so that can't be bad!! :oops:

I also forged a strong lust (over 4 eppys) for Adam Baldwin. :oops:

You may end up keeping then! Also I love the pilot but it really picks up in an addictive way at ep 6... Give us your verdict when you've seen 'em.
