Reasons we love Firefly
Because it's one of a kind show that became more than just a tv series.
Because the cast is out of this world amazing and we love them all.
Because it made "brown coat" another word for freedom fighter.
Because we now feel the need to use the word shiny a lot!
Because in this show the criminals are the good guys.

"Earth-that-was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many. We found a new solar system - dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Each one terraformed - a process taking decades, to support human life, to be new earths. The Central Planets formed the Alliance. Ruled by an interplanetary parliament, the Alliance was a beacon of civilization. The savage outer planets were not so enlightened and refused Alliance control. The war was devastating, but the Alliance's victory over the Independents insured a safer universe. And now everyone can enjoy the comfort, and enlightenment of true civilization."
The Cast:
Nathan Fillion - Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Jewel Staite - Kaywinnit Lee 'Kaylee' Frye
Adam Baldwin - Jayne Cobb
Alan Tudyk - Hoban "Wash" Washburne
Gina Torres - Zoe Washburne
Morena Baccarin - Inara Serra
Sean Maher - Dr. Simon Tam
Summer Glau - River Tam
Ron Glass - Shepherd Derrial Book

“I felt like we made it to the top of the mountain when people kept pushing us down. The fact that we made this movie, a complete, amazing, beautiful movie… it feels like we won already. If it doesn’t become a mainstream success and people don’t get it, I feel like it’s their loss, because it’s a very special, special story. I hope we get to make more.” -Summer Glau
“There are moments where, suspended in time, I have these fleeting periods of, you know, short periods of time where I actually completely believe I’m Malcolm Reynolds." Nathan Fillion

-Climbing the stake and telling the townspeople to light it (Safe)
-Telling Kaylee she looks especially pretty when covered in engine grease (Jaynestown)

Derrial Book

"Maybe. Or maybe you're exactly where you ought to be."

Photo Bucket's new policy has played havoc with lots of OP's around the site.

The rewatch seems to have been sidetracked. Might be something to keep in mind for the cooler weather.

That's a good idea.

Yes Chris, a lot of OPs are having to be re-done right now.

Yeah, it's frustrating, especially when people using Photo Bucket to host thought they were doing the right thing.

Yeah, that whole Photobucket thing sounds pretty annoying and ridiculous that they suddenly want people to pay for their service, especially at that cost.
