So I watched Serenity ages ago but I only just recently found the time to sit down and watch Firefly. Of course, I was only going to watch a couple of episodes but obviously that is not humanly possible given how great a show Firefly is. I am so upset that such a fantastic TV series was cancelled because of stupid decisions made by FOX. Instead of coming to their senses and bringing the show back it is now (IMO) too late.
However, at least we have the comics. I have yet to read the comic series that hasn't come out in trade yet. I did read the trade of the first Serenity based comic and it was good.
I am so excited for the Shepard related comic to be released mainly because it's so frustrating that the show set up so many awesome plot details and didn't get to deal with them properly, if at all.
If you have yet to watch the Firefly series I absolutely urge you to do so. It is by far the best TV series I have ever seen. Then go and watch Serenity. The movie continuation of the series that by rights should've preformed a lot better in cinemas and would've done if people had seen Firefly to know about Serenity.
