Well, I'm all right. - Mal


Every Sunday we gather in the AIM room Firefly and thumb our noses at the special hell while watching episodes together.

We start at about 18:00 GMT - you can find the time in your city at http://xrl.us/mnfs

To keep the Firefly room free of movie spoilers, please use the Serenity room if you want to discuss the DBM.

If you haven't chatted on AIM before you'll need software to join the room. If you're running on GNU/Linux or Windows (may Gor have mercy on your soul) you can try http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php
If you're running MacOS try http://www.aim.com/ and click the "Download Now" button.

If you don't have an AIM account yet you can get one at http://www.aim.com/ by clicking on the link at "Don't have a screen name? Get one FREE".

Invite yourself to the Firefly room, or if you're struggling just send a message to ImJacksNickname or YT13 asking for an invite.

With the gaim software go to the "Buddy List" window, "Buddies", "Join a chat...", put Firefly in the room input box, and click the "Join" button.

With the AOL AIM software go to the "Buddy List" window, select "People", select "Send Chat Ivitation", in the "screen names to invite" field put your screen name as well as any friends you'd like to invite, in the "Chat room" field, type Firefly

If you don't have your DVDs or tapes handy, feel free to join us anyway for a chat.

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same


On Sunday, 2005 August 14, three of the remaining sad seven of us stayed for Trash.

Over the past four Sundays, we've watched the series in DVD order, from pilot through Trash. We could easily watch the remaining three eps in well under three hours, next Sunday; it's only 2 & 1/4 hours of screen time, which leaves plenty of time for coffee, snack & other essential breaks. Just an observation, as I can't make it.

Later on Sunday, 2005 September 11, four of the remaining sad seven of us stayed for Ariel. Fourteen different folks dropped in @some point, & we maxed @eleven in the room. Only two more Sundays before a whole lot of us will have seen the BDM.

They started off with Objects In Space. I arrived late, and they told me OIS, so I tried to catch up watching Outa Gas (wishful thinking -- we ended on disc 3 last week, so it was already in the drive). Fun.

On 2005-09-25 we watched Serenity, with the room maxing out at 13.

I'll be avoiding all things Firefly after the USA release to keep from reading spoilers, so no more vshinning for me until after the movie's release here on the rim, or if a big spoiler slips thru.

Ciao.

It should start in between about an hour and a half and 3 hours time.

I think it usually starts between 6pm (1 hour 20 mins from now)and 7.30 GMT.

Big question is, are we actually going to watch an episode this week?

EDIT: Yay, we watched episodes! War Stories and Objects In Space. Several times the room maxed out, with old friends and absolute newbies attending. One person had never heard of the show until after seeing the BDM. The word continues to spread!
