pip wrote:Aside from anything it was just getting into a stride when cut off unlike Blake 7 with 50+ episodes to develop story threads etc.
Firefly managed to achieve a lot in terms of impact in a much shorter time scale.
pip wrote:I agree that if any character was to get killed off Jayne would have been an enjoyable choice but too easy as well.
I know this will get me kicked but i never really liked Doctor Who from any era.
Never got into it.
pip wrote:Blake 7 and Firefly are still too different for the kind of comparison you are making anyway.
Blake 7 did what first, Scifi or Dystopic future the whole reneagdes on the run thing
pip wrote:Genres cross but your accusing Joss Whedon of cloning Blake 7 then contradicting this by stating Blake 7 did this and that unlike Firefly.
pip wrote:Many films and tv of the 70's are Dystopic so how many was Blake 7 ripping themes from.
Logans Run etc etc etc ...............

Vila: I'm entitled to my opinion.
Avon: It is your assumption that we are all entitled to it as well that is irritating.

And while I consider Blake's 7 superior, Firefly is still amongst the best of American science fiction TV. I just don't personally find it engaging enough for me. And I have tried.

No problems here with disagreement and open debate by the way so no worries that on this one thing we disagree. And i do like Blake 7 and am a big fan of a lot of the Anti-hero and dystopic stuff that came out in the 70's and 80's and even before that.
And i probably do deserve the kick on Doctor Who.
The missus is a huge fan so maybe its over exposure but hey.

If you like Nathan Fillion, you really need to watch "Castle"! Sorry, if I'm repeating here. I have not read all the posts.
