Fox has renewed this show for a second season. They will produce only 13 episodes this time, which is more than the first season's eight, but not a full season of 20-24. I guess its a pretty damn expensive show.

Well when you have to hire those robot actors and ferry them in from the future.... yeah, that's costly. :lol:

On the plus size, the writers can have more focused storylines with less filler, the potential for 13 good episodes is greater than 22.

Rumor is that this show is headed towards cancellation. Too bad, because I really, really like it. Ive heard that Fox does not like the numbers it gives to its anchor show, Prison Break, but I don't know how true that is. As for Prison Break, how many times are those assholes going to break out of jail before some prison administrator breaks them up?

fox always fucks up on good sci-fi series.

anyone who hasn't watched Firefly here should ASAP. amazing plotlines, characters, acting, camera-work.

years ahead of its time and Fox didn't market it properly, aired it out of order and fucked it up from teh start.

they cancelled it after 11 episodes. :(

I've watched this show a couple of times and I can't get into it. It just isn't Terminator-enough for me.

Joss Whedon definitely had a good thing going with it, but as good as it was there were still some clunky moments. And, by Whedon's own admission, BSG is the best scifi he's ever seen. ;)

some clunky moments... yeah.. but it was comparatively low budget. some of the FX were just shoddy (see fire ball in "out of gas") but hey, it's some of the best acting i've ever seen (non-hyperbolic there serious) and the concept of the universe created was amazing. so many subplots that never got developed...

just so much potential. I was happy with serenity but there were still so many avenues left unexplored.

The episode where they break into the hospital was damn perfect, couldn't ask for a better scripted episode of tv sci-fi than that one.

totally agree. and if you've watched the developement of Jayne's relationship with Mal, that scene at the end of the episode is so fucking powerful. i'm so in love with that show, just bought the dvds of it ( had previously watched pirated versions) as well as teh graphic novels and the official companions. (books that is, not to be confused with companions in the actual show.. didn't buy any of those :P )

so good.

Firefly is amazing. I think I love my DVD set of the series and the movie more than most of my other DVDs and that's saying a lot. It's such a great gem of a series. Shame on Faux! :evil:

No, I haven't read those. But since it's done by Joss himself, I'd really be interested in reading them.

for GP, the toronto public library has "Serenity: those left behind" in stock with virtually no holds, and it has "Serenity: better days on order" with less holds than ordered copies.


sooo happy reading :D

Thanks for the info.

Oh, and Dollhouse sounds good.

Frak, they switched nights on me. I missed the new episode Friday. I'll watch it online tonight.

Decent episode. This show is quirky in that their off-major-arc episodes just kind of creep in there. I'm often 1/3 of the way through before I realize that the episode in question is not in the major arc.

I didn't care for the whole Reese-in-the-head thing. But otherwise, yeah, decent episode. I got a chuckle out of "John Henry" playing with his toys.
