* I have a vague recollection that something I sent to my Kindle in the recent past had a comparison to Firefly attached to it. It might have been this, but I don't remember for sure, Either way, that wouldn't have made my decision for me because I never got into the show. (GASP! THE HORROR!)**
** There was a time there a few years ago where I had this exact same conversation multiple times with multiple people:
Them: Have you seen Firefly?
Me: I tried it, but it wasn't for me.
Them: Did you watch the pilot?
Them: But did you watch the episode that was the real pilot?
Me: Yes. A Firefly fanboy showed it to me and explained why we were watching this episode. I didn't like any of the characters and didn't care about them.
Them: Oh, no, no! The characters change over the course of the show! You just have to keep watching!
Me: I have too many other things I want to do to invest time in watching a show that I don't like starring characters I don't care about on the off chance that I might eventually give a damn.
Them: Have you seen Lost?
The end of Lost has, finally, put an end to that particular conversation.
