Hi, I just learned about Firefly a couple of months ago when I was lamenting to a friend of my son's that there are hardly any good scifi movies & series out there. He told me about this series that I might be interested in called Firefly, that had well developed & interesting characters, and had elements of scifi, western, & buchaneers. Okaaaaaaayy, I thought, but what the heck, I'll give it a shot.
I put the DVDs on reserve at the library, watched it and I am now officially hooked. This movie has everything and it's so hard to choose which character I like best. I can't wait for the movie and hope that the series continues!
(BTW, after seeing it, it's not hard to understand WHY Fox [aka the republican channel] screwed up the series and dropped it like a hot potato.)
Hi, brand new here and I'm sorry to say I'm immediately looking for handouts. Does anyone know where I can find the theme song in ringtone form for a verizon LG6000? I've been trying just about everything. Thanks in advance!
Is there any Firefly fans that live in or by Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA)? Because I am going to see Serenity the day it comes out with two of my friends, and I was wondering if there was going to be more Browncoats there. I was planning on making a Firefly/Serenity shirt to wear to the theatres. Please comment.

Two big pieces of news.
1) Standard Bearers We need two people to help carry the different standards the Parade group has. I need 1 person to carry the other end of the SEBC Banner, and I need one more person to carry the flag pole bearing the Browncoat Flag. The carriers will be chosen from the top two members of the parade group that donate the most money to the SEBC (remember a portion of the proceeds will go to the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center, the charity of which Ron Glass is a chair). Once you submit a donation, let me know so I can double check your name with the records from our treasurer. One can donate multiple times. I will annouce the "winners" 1 week before Dragon-Con
2) Post parade photoshoot. Cosplay.com (a free-to-join online costuming community which includes a free photo gallery, of which I am a member) is hosting an open photoshoot immediatly after the parade
Suddenly realized I had yet to intro myself, so, here goes.
I have been a fan of Firefly since the first episode aired. Yeah, I know... but, for some reason, I pick up sci-fi shows really quickly. I happened to see Babylon 5's first aired episode, on a crappy little 12" black and white TV.
Anyway, back to Firefly. I think what really hooked me was the lack of sound in space. I am a stickler for the little details, and no "whoosh" of the ships as the fly by tickled me pink and really caught my attention.
Favorite scene: When Mal kicked Crow into the engine in "The Train Job".
Favorite quote: " If I'm your mission, Shepherd, best give it up. You're welcome on my boat. God ain't" - Malcome Reynolds, "The Train Job"
Can't wait to see "Serenity." I plan to really go all out and actually show up opening night. Haven't done that for a while!
