Why I Think Firefly Sucks

March 21st, 2014

Firefly

This came up on a Google+ sci-fi discussion group where someone said that there was some talk that a new Firefly series or spinoff that might be in the works.  As expected, tons of Firefly fanatics came out in favor of the thing, but there were a number of us who said, considering the majority of the cast has moved on, just let it die.

Oh, you should see the shitstorm that ignited!  But honestly, I never cared for Firefly and I’m a Joss Whedon fan, at least for the most part.  I like what he does.  I just thought there were tons of problems with Firefly, that’s one of the reasons it got cancelled so quickly, regardless of what order Fox aired the episodes in.

So, I thought I’d spell out what I think is wrong with Firefly and why it just never grabbed me.  Of course, your mileage may vary and you can disagree with me in the comments.
