    good, but could be better
    I was hoping for something more along the lines of “Everyone that cancelled Firefly realized what f*kups they are, and began apologizing profusely before announcing the series’ return.”

        When Serenity opens at Number 1 at the box office, that will hopefully happen. They need to see the money first.

          Yeah this will be one of the few movies I’ll spend $50 on opening weekend to see. $30 for the babysitter, $20 for the tickets + munchies.

            I never see movies more than once in the theatre, but I think I might make an exception for this one. Several exceptions, in fact.

            $10 each for tickets. $4.50 for a large diet soda(share with wife) $6 for large unbuttered popcorn(again share.)

            I count $30.50 for tickets and munchies.

              Wow, I don’t miss buying that crap at the theatre. 6 years ago I made a decision to buy all my snacks and drinks at the drug store across the street from the theatre and I haven’t looked back since :)

              As for the topic: I hope that does happen, I can’t wait for it :D. One thing that worried me though is that when I saw the trailer at Batman Begins I heard vocal “what the f* is that?” and “huh?” Worries me a bit. Hopefully they plan to market this well as the release date gets closer.

                Let’s hope. In the meantime, at least they were curious, and not objecting : )

                I agree. When I stepped outside fanboy-dom, I thought, “This trailer really doesn’t say anything to people who don’t know what Firefly is.”

              Seeing Serentiy repeatedly until they revive the series: priceless.

              Considering Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the last one I got to see in the theater the cost of soda has gone up big time. :)

            My biggest worry About Serenity is that I’ll get kicked out of the theater for singing along to the theme song and miss the movie.

            They are going to open with the song, right?

              My guess: Remixed version in the end credits.

                Difficult to say, but I suspect you’re correct. The film will open with something more “Hollywood,” like the mock epic stuff that marks recent genre efforts. Maybe even mock western epic.

    I don’t get it…
    I have been a very long-time lurker, but I have finally decided to come out of the shadows.

    I am (like most of you) a huge SF fan. I love B5 and have been renting Farscape ’cause that got me hooked too.

    I have tried to watch Firefly. I don’t like it. It feels like a cheezy “Western-in-Space”. I get the impression that they took Gene Roddenberry’s “Wagontrain to Space” concept to heart.

    So my question to you, the faithfull; what am I missing? Do I need to give it more then 5 episodes to get ‘unboring’/’uncorney’?

    I want to enjoy this show, what do you love about it?

    I will watch the movie, simply because (a) I want to support SF in the main-stream {perhaps that will help B5:TMoS be produced}. (b) They MUST make it accessible to newcomers to the show or the box-office will suffer at week #2.

      Re: I don’t get it…

      The first time I saw part of an ep, during its first run, I turned off the tv. It looked stupid. Later that year, I joined this board, and couldn’t figure out why most people here were such huge fans, and so outraged by the cancellation.

      When Space reran it the following year, my wife and I started watching and got hooked. I never entirely bought the world of the show, but the acting, writing, and production (possibly in that order) won us over. It helps to see the original episodes in order, certainly.

      Beyond that– maybe it’s just not your thing. I myself could never get much into Farscape and, while my wife occasionally watches Stargate, I’ve never seen a complete episode.

        Maybe you are right about the ‘not-my-thing’, but I hope not.
        Here is SF I like and why:

        Babylon 5 : The 5-year arc and masterfull story-telling. (I started watching it during the height of the shadow-war and then watched the whole thing. (Season 2-3-4-5-1-2-3-4-5)
        Thank-god Space had it on every day! I have always hated Season 1

        Farscape : Cool idea, well executed, great ‘Aliens’ (gotta love those muppets!) Started watching Season 4, loved it right away. I have been watching it from start (Zip.ca is worth every penny)

        StarGate: Tried watching 3 episodes (Season 1) and hated every second. No reason that I can put my finger on.

        StarGate Atlantis: Loved it from the pilot episode. (I will now rent SG1 and try watching it again.)

          If you had watched Babylon 5 from the start you would have been hooked at season 1 and MORE hooked after season 2. I order the seasons from best to worst as 3-4-2-1-5 although watching the season 5 DVDs right now, there are some really good episodes in there to, but everything with Byron is crap.

          BTW someone mentioned TMoS, does anyone know where that project is at?

          On Firefly I never did catch it in its first run (pre-pvr for me), but I do plan on catching it on Sci-Fi before the movie comes out.

      It’s space cowboys.

      Literally: They used their spaceship to smuggle a heard of cows from one planet to another. Space, cowboys.

      If you can’t deal with that, you won’t like the show, despite the excellent writing, lighting, acting, editing, action, SFX, etc, and the pretty people.
      Your loss. Free your mind, and try again.

    UK / Europe?
    Anyone have any idea when it is intended to come out in either the UK or Europe as a whole?
