Only the Good Die Young

So msmemory are finally getting around to watching through the Firefly DVDs. I'm impressed -- it's even better the second time around. Indeed, the pilot episode, Serenity, may be the best first episode of a science fiction series I've seen. Good story in and of itself, while managing to introduce all of the main characters without excessively obvious explication and throwing at least one of the primary arcs into play immediately.

I do hope they manage to do it justice in the movie. It's a damned shame that this one didn't get picked up...
