"Psychic!? But that's like science fiction!"
"Honey, we live in a spaceship..."
It's also almost infinitely quoteable.

Watched the first 20mins of an episode last night. Started off with some land war then suddenly x years later they were in spacesuits nicking some stuff off a trashed huge ship. First impressions not at all good. The music is fucking awful. I'll watch the rest of the episode before saying anything else but so far I'm not at all impressed.

I bet that by the time QT7 for windows comes out, I'll be back home and won't have a 100Mbit connection to watch HDTV trailers with. My laptop copes fine with 720p (almost perfect fit for my 1280*800 moniter), and can play 1080i without problems, but obviously not at full resolution.
and again and again and oops i seem to have bought another box set because my first has been lent out for too long.
i think the first 20 minutes would seem a lot better the second time you watch the series when you know the history of the characters and you can appreciate their interaction that much more. when i first caught it on tv it put me off too as i thought i'd come in at some obscuare part in the middle. ho hum.
anyone tried watching the hidef trailers that are floating around? damn they take some grunt, my mac can just about play the 720p file, dropping the odd frame here and there, but the 1080i, damn, thats like a slideshow. and it's too big for my 20" monitor, which is nice

Ah, the fullscreen one is a 720p trailer then? I get the feeling I'm going to be in trouble after downloading that over my phone connection. Anyone know how much damage I just did?

I noticed that the Browncoats forum has the obligatory "fave firefly female" thread and that surprisingly, Kaylee was taking the majority of the votes. Then it occurred to me that Joss has created a character with a similar level of appeal as Buffy's Willow and Angel's 'Fred; quirky, cute and slightly vulnerable. I'd guess that these characters are more appealing to the genre fanbois that the unobtainable beauty of say Inara or Zoe (and therefore by extension, Buffy or Cordelia). Myself included.
