Just watched the Firefly pilot


I assume it only gets better? That was a pretty awesome show. Been meaning to watch this one for a while.

This. It was so different from what I expected or had ever seen (except for The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai, perhaps... but I didn't think about that until much later).

...and then you showed up.

BA - You're probably the only one who knows who Buckaroo Bonzai is. Fear... maybe you, too.

I'm really amazed USA was able to get such a strong cast together with really established actors.

Oh, I looked it up on IMDB and thought I saw USA. Oops.

I was in Afghanistan in 2002, so I had no idea what shows were on anyway.

I listen to a lot of techno music... and to this day I hear stuff from late 2003/early 2004 that I think is new because of Katrina.

Not the same, I know. Thank you for your service - My Dad was 23 years retired Naval Commander.

Jayne!
The Man they call Jayne!
He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor,
He stood up to the man and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now, aint hard to explain,
The hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne!
Our Jayne saw the Mudders' backs breakin'
He saw the Mudders lament
And he saw that magistrate takin'
Every dollar and leavin' five cents
So he said, "You can't do that to my people"
"You can't crush them under your heel"
Jayne strapped on his hat
And in five seconds flat
Stole everything Boss Higgins had to steal
He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain
The Hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne
Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I
The man they call Jayne
He turned 'round his plane
And let that money hit sky
He dropped it onto our houses
He dropped it into our yards
And the man they call Jayne
He turned round his plane
And headed out for the stars
He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain
The Hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne!

"I'll be in my bunk..."

One of the best lines in the show!

Show is great till episode 14. After that it sucks. The movie was really good too though.

At the time I don't think most of the cast were really that established.

Adam Baldwin had a famous last name and was known for his role in Full Metal Jacket but that was about it.

Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk had also had some short runs on TV and memorable bit parts but neither had been main characters in anything big.

Joss Whedon always gets praised for his writing and the shows he creates but either he has been really lucky or he is a great caster too.

Buffy, Angel & Firefly had some a lot of unknowns step in and do really great work.
