Would've
« on: Fri, 12 February 2021, 15:12:29 »
u know, Firefly would've easily became a 100 BILLION dollar franchise.

It connected with ADULTS, people with continuous spending power, desperate to throw money at this thing.

In the context of plot,  there are at least 3x similar animes for JossWhedon to continue ripping off.  That's at least 20x episodes.

Sigh.......................

Yeah, a lot of people really liked Firefly, and point out how much potential it had as a character-driven show. Think Cowboy Bebop, but live action and made in the west, with different characters. It still has that skeleton of the sci-fi western, of the broke spaceship crew doing different jobs from week to week to give the show its framework. I just personally haven't watched it because there's no way for me to tell how much of the love for the series is "Look at where it could have gone!" and how much of it is the show actually being good and compelling; honestly, I may have a mild case of hype aversion on it as well.

He's not my hero, he's just lucky to be part of Firefly.

Firefly is its own thing.

You have cake,  there's nothing special about sugar, flour, water,   But together, it's cake.

Oh no!

That is the consummate spoiler. The show was cut off abruptly after one season, and the movie came out several years later as a quick efficient way to tie up all the loose ends.
The problem is deeper than reporters asking tough questions of both sides, but the view of politics these questions reflect. Simply put, this view is the one that Trump rode to victory on and built his cult with.
Democrats and progressives want politics to be about policies that will help Americans and solve problems; Trumpists want to make politics about lies, insults, personalities and tribal warfare, so that the American people continue to believe that politics is just a sideshow that has nothing to do with their lives.
Journalists should hold politicians accountable on both sides of the aisle, but they should do so in substantive ways, not by asking irrelevant questions that look more like gotcha oppo research than substantive questions about policy. At a deeper level, the choices that journalists and media companies make right now will have an important impact on whether we as a nation are able to rise from the destruction of January 6th to revitalize our democracy, or to slide helplessly into fascism.

It's spoiler, but it's fine, still a great show.

OK ok, I'll watch the series, then movie again. I only remember one thing from the movie, that girl who suddenly jumped out and killed all the guys in a room.
Plus the main guy, I like him.
