Yup, I'm definitely a Browncoat. Love my "Big damn heroes" so very much!

I know there's not a Firefly thread and I'm hesitant to start one because perhaps it's been discussed to death here.

Not sure if this belongs here but have you head of the fan made "sequel" to Serenity/Firefly titled Browncoats: Redemption? It's out on DVD and BluRay but only available for purchase for a short time. Adam Baldwin makes a cameo.  *squee* I'm definitely checking it out.

We did have a Josh Whedon thread but it petered out. Feel free to start a Firefly/Serenity thread. If you do I'll just split off these posts and add it to the new one. :)

When I was little my whole family watched the show Earth 2.  People colonize a new planet and have to learn to deal with the resident sentient species.  Supposedly you can find the episodes online free somewhere, but I can't find them.  It's out on DVD but I don't know if I want to spend the money on a show I only remember bits and pieces of.  On the other hand, it's the only show I actually remember watching as a whole family, for the entire season, until high school at least. So it can't have been bad.

Earth 2 was interesting in a high tech pioneering sort of way. Lots of back story to delve into. Hints of an overall industrial conspiracy. And lots of people with twisted complicated personal histories. Basic premise, the first people sent to colonize a planet mis their landing target. Not everyone survives. They scramble what they can to get to the initial proposed landing site to prepare for the ships that are following. They discover among other things that there are natives to the planet living there, that their ship might have been sabotaged, and that they are not the first humans there. There was even a little time travel.

I've taken advantage of my Netflix streaming to watch two series lately.  One of them was a re-watch, but the other was a watch-new.

SURFACE -- Great sci-fi show from 2005 about a new amphibious species and the havoc it was wreaking on the ecosystem.  Loved it when it came on back then and have thought about it often during the last 6 years.  Such a disappointment to me that NBC cancelled this series after just one season.  Boo...hiss!  Especially because things were just starting to get good!

SURVIVORS -- This was a BBC show from 2008, and it was a remake of an earlier (1975) version of the same show.  I loved this show!  If you don't know....  It takes place in England following an outbreak of flu that kills 99% of the world's population.  The series focuses on the survivors who are left, as they come together to carve out a new life.  It's kind of philosophical in a way:  can past sins be forgotten? if society had an opportunity to start completely over, how would it fare? There was a good blending of the light and dark, human and inhumane.  I tell you what, though, there's one character in the show -- the female government minister -- who catapulted to the top of my Most Hated Characters list.  Her vile hypocrisy had me seething.  LOVED this series!
I could not deprive you of the realization of all you could accomplish together, and of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot begin to imagine.

It just occurred to me that the artwork of Honor Harrington looks a heck of a lot like Commander Susan Ivanova on Babylon 5.

Would be interesting to know who or what the artist's inspirations were.

That show had lots of interesting back stories.

Never saw the show, and now I'm kind of sorry. Always thought Scott Bakula was hot though.
