I'm not saying that everything in the world would be better with a second season of Firefly, but it sure wouldn't hurt.

I enjoyed that series also. But you should check out the movie Serenity, which gives an ending to the show.

At least in comic book form...

I have most of them. A quick google'n showed me I might've missed a series. Most were produced by Dark Horse, but there is a brand new run (Issue #1 just came out last month...) through Boom! who I've never heard of until just a second ago. I'll probably wait until a hardback version comes out...

But that said, while the comics scratch an itch, it's not even a close comparison to the show/movie.

I think one of the reasons Firefly is so good is because it wasn't on long enough to run out of steam.

Liked the story line but stopped watching it because of the language.

I have the whole thing on dvd, including Serenity, but for some reason have never gotten around to watching Serenity. Will have to do it soon.

Man, I had a hard time opening this thread on a mobile device. With a thread title of "..." there's barely enough click real estate.

Never seen Firefly or Serenity. The only reason I know about them is because of CPS. Also, I have a thing against Nathan Fillion. My mom has some sort of crush on him and I find that unsettling.

As is par for the course, I missed this little bit of pop culture. It is not on Netflix, so it may have to stay that way.

One of the great TV series.
