I never saw Firefly when it was aired originally on Fox, I know I’m not alone in that, but I did fall under it’s spell via DVD sometime in 2004. The show grabbed me by the throat about 8 minutes into the first episode and never let go until the closing credits of the fourteenth episode. I really enjoyed the show and upon repeat viewings I enjoyed Firefly even more. Unfortunately when I watched Firefly about 6 months ago, after not seeing it in a couple of years, I was saddened to find this time out I didn’t like it all that much. More on that in a moment.
I’ve been flying a lot the last few weeks so I decided to use the time to watch some TV shows and movies that I previously wasn’t all that interested in. I did this so I could duck out on talking to my unit’s CO and XO as much as possible if they were around because they annoy the living hell out of me. Also a I didn’t want to have endless conversations with the Air Force guys because I get testy after about 2 minutes of talking about kicking ass and taking names yadda, yadda, yadda. Instead, I hid out and watched movies and TV on the laptop and that’s when I decided to do this dumb post.
SEASON FINALE CHANGBACK
Here it is boys and girls. The fifth season finale is tonight, 13 May 2010, so let’s discuss. There is one important ground rule that goes with this ChangBack and it is the only rule. In order to help our foreignnally challenged friends, there will be no discussion of the episode itself until Monday 18 May so the dwellers on that rain swept rock in the North Atlantic can see the episode spoiler free. Feel free to talk about possibilities for the finale, theorize about next season and anything else pertaining to SN. Just don’t get specific about the finale until Monday or after everybody has had a chance to see it.
