These are not the larger, cooler looking trailers, but the content is the same.

I just saw Serenity. I was fortunate enough to have watched all the episodes over the last few weeks and really got to like and appreciate the characters.

Anyway, I came out of the movie really feeling somber. The movie was better than I had expected and I'm taking a Firefly virgin to see it tomorrow. I think he'll miss some of the emotionalism, since he won't really know the characters like I do.

Anyway, I'd urge you to see this movie, whether you're a previous fan of Firefly or not. Be warned: it is very violent, but its moments of humor are worth it, and except for the 'secret' seeming a bit lame (for a huge under-wraps conspiracy), the writing was excellent. And the secret, when taken in the context of what a government might be 'embarassed' by, could be worth those risks.

I loved it.

Yep. Many people have commented on that.

I am hoping the DVD shows the other two cuts that were potentially the ones for release.

Excellent movie.

I only recently heard that some eps didn't show, but from what I understand, they are all present on the DVDs. Since I hadn't seen the series when it ran, they were all new (and good) to me.

I've been a follower of Firefly for less than 2 months, but I'm as loyal to it as I am to Trek and Farscape, I'd say.

There are indeed episodes that didn't air in the US and other places.

I think Channel 7 down here did screen them all, in the correct order, but I only watched a few televised episodes given the late hour they had it on, and the fact I had already seen the series once or twice on DVD.

Plus, the DVD's are worth it for the wrap video.

Yes it does!

I'm very happy with the series and the movie.

I'm hoping that they can make something else for the universe in the future.

The comic was nice, but I need more! Wink
