I actually enjoyed Firefly on DVD way more than I expected to, though I’d hold to my initial reaction somewhat. You want to make a Western, then make a Western. You want to have a program set in the far future, I don’t mind a trickling of Western tropes in there, but I do mind a flood.

I may be one of the few people who is neither wildly pro-Whedon nor intensely anti-Whedon. I like some of his work very much, some less so. I see his weaknesses and his strengths. I think there are cultural properties that he is a perfect match for, and some less so.

    (i think i fall in that same category; i love firefly, but nothing else of his has grabbed me.)

  2. emschwar says:

    I came up tied as Wash/Kaylee, which is about as accurate as I could hope for in that small a cast.

  3. David Chudzicki says:

    I enjoyed the flood of Western tropes. That would be a problem if the show took itself too seriously, but it doesn’t.

  4. Endie says:

    I tied as Zoe, River and Shepherd. I just wanted to be Jayne (55 lousy percent), dammit.

    I liked Serenity and Firefly, enough to buy the DVDs of each, but not enough to have watched every episode. Buffy and Angel each lost my interest fairly quickly.
