In preparation for the Serenity Forever convention this weekend I’ve been re-watching Firefly. It is so good. Fun, great stories, fab actors and I am now so cross that Joss Whedon, for whatever reason, didn’t continue the series.
The most valid reason is, of course, ratings. However, it seems that the episodes were originally aired out of order (for fracks sake why???) and the plonked in a time slot that didn’t encourage viewer numbers. Source here.
It’s a shame that we are stuck in a rut of reality shows and the like, when there are great stories to be told. I feel the more the general public are fed this kind of tripe the less they are likely (or even able) to give thought-provoking and interesting shows a first chance let alone a second.
