River is unpredictable, she might fire.

River was definitely unpredictable, but I can't see her intentionally hurting Mal. Jayne maybe, but not Mal.

Never Mal I agree, she sees the truth in people and she knows Mal is a good person.

I just got done watching Serenity, movie.

We have been watching the series over the past 7 weeks - 2 episodes at a time - and topped it off with the movie tonight.

Because I so recently watched and loved the series, I have to say the movie was a terrible disappointment.
IMO, if a person watched just the movie, they would think it was just another sci-fi action adventure and never understand the fans' devotion to the series.

The movie was dark and bloody, with very little of the underlying humor of the series' dialogue.
Killing Shepherd off was horrible enough, but killing Wash was enough to ruin the movie for me.

I did enjoy watching River dance through her fights.

I'm looking forward to watching the series again, and I'll hope that the wonderfulness of it will erase the memory of the movie from my mind.
I'm sure I'll never be interested in watching the movie again.

Oh .. I did notice that the actor who was chasing River and murdering so many people was the same fellow who starred in the recent "Twelve Years A Slave." He's a very talented actor.

Was there ever any creature imagined so horrendous as Reavers? {{shudder}}

I agree with that - I thought the movie was far worse than the show. Though I think if I had watched Firefly when it first aired and had to wait so long for the movie, I might have liked the movie better...?

Well said, The movie had a whole different tone from the show. I'm not sure that I'd be inclined to watch the tv series if I'd seen the movie first.

While I didn't like it, I could see how Shepherd's death was part of the storyline. Wash's death was just totally unnecessary.

For sure, in that situation I'd have been excited to see my old friends of Firefly again, but my expectations would probably have been just as high.

Exactly, Chris. From the movie alone, you'd wouldn't know the series was any different. But it was like day and night.
Agree about Wash as well - no reason whatsoever to have killed him. It hurt.
