After watching all the current episodes of Heroes in 3 days (11 episodes), I watched the 14 episodes of Firefly , and the resulting movie again: Serenity .
Heroes was an interesting series to watch, even if the premise behind it is actually not that different from the 4400 : humans who were changed to have supernatual abilities.
It'll be interesting to see the rest when it comes out next year.
Firefly unfortunately was killed by Fox, who were just assholes on this front. They refused to show the pilot because it was in widescreen, and didn't fit what they wanted to show. They soon after cancelled the show without ever giving it much of a chance, even though it had started to attract a lot of viewers.
The later movie Serenity did great too, but Fox retains all the TV rights, so the series is likely going to remain killed.
Kind of sad when things like that happen, but then again Fox is also Fox "News", so they're already on my shitlist. Too bad the Firefly producer didn't sign up with some other channel originally.
But then again, if I were to get one show back, I'd take Babylon V first. Firefly was nice even if the wild west, 6 shooter atmosphere looks a tad weird to me, but B5 was better :)
