Thoughts On Firefly 4 - 7

I was able to spend my long weekend enjoying more Firefly on DVD, which was nice. There’s not much to add to my initial impressions on the show at this point. The episodes continue to provide that Josh Whedon balance of comedy and seriousness, which makes them instantly likeable. I think it’s a shame that the series never got a chance to continue properly as there are plenty of things being gradually set up for payoff later, and I’m quite sure I won’t get to see them all explored in the second half of the aborted series. Perhaps the movie Serenity will tackle everything that’s left over, but I’m sure things will turn out differently without the prospect of continued syndication.

I’m enjoying Mal a lot, obviously. He continues to make a good lead character and Fillon acts the part very well. His interactions with The Companion make the pair of them interesting, though she’s not a stand out character on her own. The engineer (I’m working from memory and Googling names requires too much effort!) is another favourite. She’s enjoyable to watch and the actress does a wonderful job with her. Oh, and special mention to the episode where an entire town worship’s Jane – it had me giggling myself off the sofa. Happily it looks like I’ll have the next DVD to enjoy this weekend as well.

Ah, everyone likes Kaylee. Wash is still my favourite, but as the series goes on Jayne grows on you a lot.

Wash is indeed fun to watch. I did enjoy episode... was it 10? Only last weekend and already my memory is shot. Anyway, the one where he gets all uppity with Mal. Good stuff.

And yeah, enjoying Jayne too.
