This is a great television show. It's the number one show that I wish I could bring back.
Thanks for posting, Browncoat. You've earned reputation points,

The concept of combining low-tech with sci fi isn't unique to Firefly. I can think of at least three authors that I've read that detail colonization of planets, in which the colonists resort to low(er) tech in order to deal with resource issues while settling the world they've chosen to inhabit. Many sci fi authors include the economics of technology as part of their story, and it often takes colonists generations to return to the same level of sophistication. It seems many authors include the inner planets vs. outer planets story Whedon developed for Firefly. It makes sense, since it's likely worlds would be colonized in (more or less) a circular fashion, and the wealth and power would probably be concentrated in the inner hub.
Regarding his criticism of Malcolm Reynolds, I suppose it's fair to say he had a rather strong personality. Many of the fans of the show, myself included, enjoyed the character for this very reason. Tastes vary, of course.
I don't need to address the comment about Angel, other than to say there isn't much in the way of logic involved with that statement.

The movie (Serenity) wraps all the big stuff up in a good way though. There is a little bit they left open to expand on just in case they got picked up for another movie, but you will feel satisfied with the ending when the movie credits roll.

Wish I could find a Series similar to either Jericho, Lost or Walking Dead.
Trying to get into Firefly now.

For the most idiotic thing I've read this year. And I read a lot of dumb stuff...

|solid12345||This is probably the 20th time i've counted this going frontpage ever since I started using slickdeals. Come on, I know the show has a cult following, but so did the Adventures of Brisco County Jr., we might as well have a 24/7 Firefly tracker on SD.|

|kmack||I just spent several weeks watching all 7 seasons of Buffy for free via Amazon Prime on my Roku - love that show. Hard to believe it ended more than 10 years ago. Just starting on Angel now (also free to stream if you have Prime). It's much darker than Buffy, and if I remember correctly, it sort of jumps the shark when they go into the alternate dimension. However, the characters are well developed and the writing can be excellent.|

I'm not a Whedon fan. I never caught onto Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In fact, I probably purposely avoided it because Sarah Michelle Gellar was on it.
But, I did get Firefly because of the many folks on SD who said it was good. It was a good purchase. It's good entertainment. So, that's my piece on this.
I then later got Serenity too, and did not regret purchasing that either.

"We are turning into Czarist Russia. We are creating a nation of serfs. That leads to — oddly enough — revolution and socialism, which then leads to totalitarianism. Nobody wins."
It sounds more like he's saying all previous systems haven't worked... this sounds more like a critique of government as it has manifested so far than a blatantly anti-capitalist tirade.
Apparently people expect those who think there are problems with current economic and political systems to abandon them altogether, giving up all wealth and forgoing all the benefits of said systems... because people respect the views of hobos.
If my car is running badly I look for ways to fix it while using it... I don't abandon it and walk home.
