    TV Shows

    Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by Kratos, Aug 12, 2008.

    Over the last couple of days I've been watching the short-lived TV series Firefly, and it's amazing. I just finished all 14 episodes and the movie, and I'd have to say it's one of my favorite shows of all time.

    Anybody else like this amazing show? If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do. It's sci-fi, but at times you forget it, because it's not real heavy-handed about that stuff.

    Seriously one of the best television shows in a long time. Scifi or otherwise.

    I know! Why'd they have to go and cancel it?

    My brother and I (semi) cried when...that character died.

    w00t! Another Browncoat joins the fold! ;)

    Firefly was indeed an awesome show - canceled due to lack of support, even though many fans around the world rallied and even started a fund to pay for the production of the show themselves... The good thing is, because of devotion like that, we got Serenity. Small consolation, but consolation none the less.

    and there is talk of Whedon doing a sequel, but it will be probably 2010 before he can do it...and he's been making rumbles about himself

    Serenity and firefly are both awesome! One of the best sci-fi shows ever, along with Farscape :)

    There were plans to do a second series named Serenity due to red tape and net work changes but nothing else has been reported nor mentioned from whedons site. I've heard the rumours of a sequal movie but again fallen into silence. I know Whedon is eager to bring it back as much as he can.

    I was certainly mortified when it was cancelled I loved that show. Its a big fave of mine such a magical series and a great movie. Sad ending about losing two of the characters but makes room for two newbies. ;) shoul;d anything comeback.
    I know for a fact that all the cast Nathan Fillion and Co. have always said they will return without a doubt should Whedon get a go ahead.

    But a truly magical show. One of its kind.

    At the moment, Fox (who own the rights to the series) won't bring the series back. However, they also won't sell it to a competitor for a reasonable price. That's why you haven't seen a comeback.

    hmmm. I figured something of sorts. Though it makes no sense in holding it when the following is still craving a return.

    Makes me proud to be a Brown Coat when all odds are stacked we still fight on.

    Pretty much :p

    The Alliance said they were goin’ to waltz through Serenity Valley, and we choked ‘em with those words. We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.

    ^^ Wash has my favourite scene in the whole series (I have tons of favourite quotes, generally by Mal...), but the scene where he's playing around with the two plastic dinosaurs, then says "Curse your sudden yet inevitable betrayal!"

    Classic. :D

    I just thought it'd be nice to have a thread where everyone talks about the tv shows they watch, if any. I personally have about eight that I'm keeping track of:
    Lost
    Heroes
    Prison Break (just found it's not coming back for season 5; I'm happy yet sad, ironically)
    Fringe
    Legend of the Seeker
    Crusoe
    Smallville
    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
    The 4400 (before it was canceled, the jerks)

    So yeah, you're probably thinking how I have the time to do, well, anything. Truth be told, I do kind of wish at least a few of these shows would end, since they've been going on for a while (and it would free up some time for me). So what shows do you guys watch?

    I'm a big fan of Bones and Psych. I watch a bunch more shows, but those two are the ones I will stay home to see :D

    lost, it's always sunny in philadelphia, and the office, but my interest is waning on that last one. Can't wait for season 5 of Lost!! And the Dollhouse premiere, as well.

    honestly, I guess I don't watch much TV right now. Rather, I have been rediscovering TV of the past that I missed out on somehow, namely, Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks and everything that Joss Whedon's ever done.
