Firefly is the coolest thing ever. I love the series and the film and quote them often.

I watched them all and enjoyed them - although it's really annoying that they cut the series just as I was getting interested in the origin of the characters. Shepherd Book for example: it's clear there is much more to him than meets the eye. Someboby they meet says: "Him? He's no Shepherd." - so what is his back story? Serenity didn't go any further to explaining about him either.

I'm looking forward to introducing Sharlene to this series. :wink:

Jayne, the man they call Jayne

He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

Our Jayne saw the mudders' backs breakin'
He saw the mudders' lament
And he saw the magistrate takin'
Every dollar and leavin' five cents
So he said "you can't do that to my people"
He said "you can't crush them under your heel"
So Jayne strapped on his hat
And in 5 seconds flat
Stole everythin' Boss Higgins had to steal

He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I
The man they call Jayne
He turned 'round his plane
And let that money hit sky
He dropped it onto our houses
He dropped it into our yards
The man they called Jayne
He stole away our pain
And headed out for the stars

He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne.


Beautiful :lol: :lol:

Well.

I finally got round to watching Firefly and Serenity at the weekend.

As Tony says up-thread, it began to get really good, then they zapped it.

Wasn't too keen on Serenity, especially with the 2 deaths, and especially, especially at the second death. :?

Loved the episode called Trash.

Can't think why.

Nice tat, Nathan! :wink:

Yeah it was a bit harsh in Serenity to be honest. Awful upsetting .

I knew he was going to die, but the way it happened, and how suddenly it happened was a shocker.

Morena Bacarin really is the most stunning looking woman, isn't she? :shock:

Imagine how beautiful the babies would be if she and Nathan go their thang on?

Well from the actors point of view, it would be great to try out a death scene, particularly if the show's already been cancelled. Then you can cheerfully rattle your last breath, and make all those fans cry.

The show had been cancelled, and this was a straight to DVD movie to wrap things up.

I was most miffed.

I had to close my eyes, and envisage Nathan Fillion nekkid to calm myself down!

:wink:

:roll:

It wasn't straight to DVD - look at the effects! - it came out in the cinema in Aug 2005 in US, Sept here a month after I started work at cinema. it went to #2 at box office here and I think #4 in US. Not bad, eh.


Glad you've finially seen it now, :D , I'd forgotten that you hadn't... :? My favourite episodes are Out of Gas, Jaynestown and Objects in Space. I love the filmand seeing that death on the big screen was such a moment, wish I'd seen it twice, you had to know it was coming, knowing how Joss treats his characters (Tara?).
