Speaking of the Firefly if you go back and watch the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica mini-series from 2003 there's a scene on Caprica and in the background sky you will see a Firefly-class ship flying by. :)

Don't think so Eric.

Oh, I didn't realize that B-star G was remade. I thought we were talking about the old Lorne Greene one.

Hey! Firefly premiered on my burfday! COOL!

cool, peachy! - i will have to look for that!

nice, lilbambi & eric  :)

so... the shows as-listed on the dvd are definitely in the wrong order!
the last show listed should have been the one where they bring their friend home (who was mailed to them...)
because the composer of the music said he wrote the piece for the final scene to say "goodbye" to firefly.

From what I've found, the correct order is at Wikipedia:  Firefly (TV series)

Yep, that's where I got the TV show dates, too Corrine.

Of course the movie Serenity was in 2005.

Yes, Battlestar Galactica TV show was re-imagined I think would be more like it. It is very good actually. Different from the original in many ways, but still very cool. I love the original and the new ones. I also loved the Caprica TV show too.

My DVD box set has them listed in the correct order.

I am at a hotel tonight, and flipped on the TV. The first channel that is on (the TV is behind me) has the voice of Mal. I don't know which show this is, but Nathan Fillion has business playing any role other than Malcolm Reynolds.

adam, yeah, fillion's not mr former combat hardened soldier, empty soul, that mal is supposed to be.

lilbambi - i saw the movie ~before~ i bought the dvd set (thus then seeing the show.
the movie was kinda hollow. ~but~ after watching the dvd set & seeing the movie, the movie was far more interesting, and a far better movie.

I love Castle too. Fun show.

I agree that the movie is much better with the show's context.

Love Firefly. Occasionally I'd run across a marathon of Firefly on the SF channel or whatever. Say to myself "...there goes my day..." and watch 4 to 6 of them back to back. Fab series, amazing that it was on ... Faux?!?

I liked when Vera took out the Reavers, except- waidaminnit! Wouldn't that suit depressurize almost instantaneously? So how does he plausibly get off shots #2 through whatever? As satisfying as it was to see the looks on the Reavers crew's faces. I don't see how he managed to shoot their window out...

based on the number of stone pieces, their shape and distribution, the working theory is that the number four is somehow fundamental to the game.

I wouldn't have something like that. Now, I might have a sexy Jayne Cobb outfit along with the accompanying "Vera". ;)
