This is the start of an epic discussion, about one of the greatest, short-lived TV series of all time.

Firstly, who's seen the show or the movie, or both?

Who's a fan? Who's rooting for a season 2?

Finally, WHO DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING AT ALL about FireFly or Serenity?

Have them all.

Excellent series, great movie.

However, I don't believe there should be a second season. Don't misunderstand; I love Firefly and watching The Message is quite a bittersweet experience, but Joss was essentially able to tell out most of the tale I think we would've seen in a fully-run series with Serenity, the movie. To go back now and lobby for another season I think would fail to capture the magic that the series and movie had. Not unlike what happened with Airwolf during season 4, or any of a myriad of shows that just kept going long after they'd run their course (DS9 and Voyager both come to mind also).

I liked Serenity, I loved Firefly.

I really hope there is another season....the first ended so abruptly. The whole series just had so much charm. The cast was excellent, the special effects were top-notch, and the story just flowed easily. Perfect. I also loved how the series explored the characters in depth, for instance Zoe when she rescues Walsch (sp?) from the crime lord's station, or Malcolm's darkside when he overpowers the torturer.

True fans love the show, more than the movie.

As far as I know, Joss is looking towards making Serenity films moreso than returning to the Firefly series. So rather than looking towards Firefly season 2, I look towards Serenity 2 as a promising burst of fresh entertaining sci-fi. Between films there is BSG to watch, and time to save up to buy all of Babylon 5, and maybe get the original trilogy of Star Wars.

I would have to agree that BSG and FireFly are on par with each other. They are both great for different reasons.

BSG is like the perfect Sci-Fi.

FireFly is like a perfect blend of adventure, comedy and Sci-Fi.

I'm still looking forward to the movies; hopefully the second one will have plenty of 'Book' flashbacks, even though he died in the first one.

Nice, Chris.

The DVD release in Australia was actually pretty good. Came with 2cds and plenty of fantastic special features. It's worth buying man.
