Where does the good go

FIREFLY

FIREFLY

Okay.

I’ll admit that somewhere around forcing myself through episode four, I was absolutely certain that all of you were in cahoots in perpetrating the best/worst practical joke in Dawn’s life.

“No, Dawn, don’t worry. It gets better. Just put in another nine hours of your life. Snicker, snicker.”

But, by the middle of Disc 2, I was kinda into it.

I don’t know what the hell was going on in ‘Jaynestown’ and I was tired of the whole doctor/Kaylee song and dance by the pilot…oh, and were we really supposed to buy that whole Wash/Zoe marriage?

HA!

And what’s up with the Chinese…or should I say really bad Chinese? And don’t get me started on that theme song…

But that’s neither here nor there, it is too bad we’ll never know what was up with Shepard Book or that crazy masochist bad guy, Nishka.

So, all in all, Firefly is no Angel and seriously, no need to spit on all that I am and believe in, by comparing it to Buffy, but it isn’t the worst.

“If someone tries to kill you, you…well…you try and kill them right back.”

Indeed.

    You can take up any complaints about the theme song (which, I agree with you, is really odd and even annoying) with the composer, Joss Whedon.

    But that Jaynestown ep was classic, even though the show itself is not yet one. The deal with the Chinese is that after whatever war was fought (Zoe and Mal were on the losing side), Chinese became a major cultural and linguistic influence. More than that, I cannot tell you.
