Firefly - The Series

I'm hooked! A few days ago, a friend lent me the first DVD from Joss Whedon's Firefly - The Complete Series. Wow! What a great TV series! And what a shame that Fox cancelled it after only showing 11 episodes. Another example of the TV networks assuming that the viewing public has the attention span for nothing more than reality (hack, hack, cough, cough) TV series. I just ordered the entire set for myself after watching the pilot twice and the first two regular episodes. The cast forms a perfect ensemble, the characters are well developed and likeable, the technology is interesting, and the view of humankind 500-years in the future is fascinating. I never thought I would see people riding up to a spacecraft on horseback or a spacecraft flying over a train.
