    Anyone a fan of Firefly?

    I just discovered it, and I love it. Made me realize how fickle a beast the mass of TV watchers are, though. How could this have been canceled?? Damn you FOX for your sudden and inevitable betrayal.

    Also, this is cool:

    Is there anything out there thats similar in type and quality?

    Huge fan here. Firefly and Serenity are among the very few shows/movies I have watched multiple times.

    I've heard of it, but haven't read it.

    Hell yes! Best show in the 'verse. I always get a pang of "meh" knowing we'll probably never get anymore.

    Pointless Firefly fact: Google Wave has several nods to Firefly - it's (reputedly) named "Wave" after communications in firefly and when it crashes it shows a message titled "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!" and sometimes displays an error message with "Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret!". The development of wave extensions is code named 'serenity' and the sandboxed version of wave is called 'dollhouse' (not firefly, but Whedon related)
    OMG! Ubuntu!

    Very cool!

    In the Halloween episode of the show 'Castle' the character played by Nathan Fillion got dressed up in full Mal attire. When asked what he was he said 'space cowboy'.

    Wow, didn't know all of that. FOX is really terrible about canceling awesome things. Arrested Development, anyone?

    Another fan here. It was a really nice show. Unfortunately, Hollywood executives only seems to like scripted series about doctors, nurses, lawyers, cops or at least one corpse per episode.

    firefly is a perfect example of how fox cannot be trusted with anything. Joss Whedon shoudl have realized that he can't do business with them years ago.
    Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.
