I've just finished watching the last episode of my very recently acquired Firefly dvd set, and I'm definitely in love with this show! The worst part, besides not being able to watch a second season, is not being able to share the experience with my friends, none of which speak English! I've tried to explain to them why I spend all my free time watching a show about space renegates who swear in Chinese, but they all just think I'm crazy...I can't wait to see Serenity; a friend of mine went to a trip in Australia and he promised he would bring me back the DVD!
By the way, English not being my mother tongue, I apologize in advance for all the mistakes I'm very probably going to make...

It's odd, I would think more French people would like Firefly; I thought getting completely stomped in a noble fight would be something you would understand completely.

Welcome here. And, I know that the Region 1 DVDs have French dubbing, at least (though, admittedly, it's a compromise). Maybe you can find a way to share...

Well, I'm sure French people would love this show if they had a proper chance to watch it. It was aired just once on the French cable (at about 2:00 AM)with an awful dubbing which made it sound like a stupid show with stupid characters in it (the translators didn't even keep the Chinese words!!!)
As for the DVDs, the lack of French subtitles on both R1 and R2 sets makes it really difficult for me to introduce my family and friends to the show...

Welcome aboard, dollwen! And you needed concern yourself overly much about your English. One misspelled word is FAR better than some who make the same apology, but not the same effort.

Seems I've been pouring a lot of fresh wine lately shiny!

Hey FollowMal,
I don't remember being handed a browncoat. I don't care if it is invisible, it's the thought that counts!

Welcome Dollwen! I know you'll love it here!

Howdy, dollwen, and welcome to our little Haven. Always great to see more 'coats announcing themselves. Ain't nothin' shinier. And there's more and more of us every day.

Keep the faith, spread the word, and we'll all be holding the line when Mal gets back:P

You'll have to forgive FollowMal, she's been quite busy, what with all the new coats to be handing out daily. There seems to be quite the influx of new recruits lately, and that's best news I've seen all week.

Welcome!
Link to the River Tam Sessions is in my signiture.
And I hope you can get the comics (now also out in graphic novel form) which bridge that gap between Firefly & Serenity.

I'm sorry about the lack of French translation, that has got to be remedied! Who do we petition?
In the mean time you can always come here and talk to all of us
(and let me assure you, your English is better than mine, and I was born in the USA)

Welcome Dollwen! We're glad you are here, and your English is as good as most folks 'round here, and much better than some!

I know of one other French browncoat, named petitrhino, but I haven't seen much of her around here lately. Last I heard, she was in Scotland, the Orkneys I believe.

Bonjour et bienvenue a FFF.net, Dollwen!

There are French subtitles on the R1 Serenity DVD, so maybe your family will enjoy that once you have it.

However, I warn you, I didn't think much of the translation. It totally misses the Western jargon -- though I don't know how that could be suggested in French. Worse, it omits a good deal of the dialog in some scenes. I'm afraid the subtitles won't really capture the spirit of the movie.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don't disagree on any particular point.

Welcome, Dollwen. I think your english is better than most of the people in the U.S. for whom it is their primary language. Hope you enjoy your visits here and come back often. It's nice to see someone from France here for a change. Glad to see there are Browncoats over there to spread the word about Firefly. While some in this country have resorted to bashing France over the last few years since a particular moron got into the White House I don't hold to the propaganda crap and I remember history like when French soldiers and French naval forces helped our forefathers fight the British at Yorktown and win our freedom from a repressive monarchy. I also remember fondly a particularly beautiful gift of a remarkable lady that now stands in New York harbor welcoming people to America, her torch shining brightly. Vive La France! and once again, bienvenue browncoat de camarade

Hi, FollowMal, I'm the one you were so helpful to regarding how to post, etc. I don't want to sound greedy, but I don't recall being handed a browncoat either. It would sure come in handy when it's cold outside or I happen to encounter any Alliance people. I know you're very busy (especially recently, which is great), so don't rush on my account.

Thanks! And welcome, Dollwen!

SaveWash,

goodness, we may have to hire either a new or another requisitions clerk.... my apologies...

*hands SaveWash a Browncoat, with a grave shake of the head over my slighting a new fellow Browncoat*

Don't forget to tell any Alliance folk who notice that you are wearing a "brown colored" coat, that you got it on sale!

Welcome aboard if I didn't say it and believe me when I say... we are all VERY pleased to have new folks to help us hold the line.

Thanks, FollowMal. It fits nicely!

I'm not telling anyone I got my coat on sale! No, I'll tell 'em I paid full price (swore my allegiance to Mal and crew, bought the DVDs, etc.) and it is worth every penny.

I think you're doing a great job handing out the browncoats when there are so many new people every day. If only the Fox people would open their eyes and see how many of us there really are.

Thanks again.

Hi Dollwen! Welcome to the site. It's always good to see a new Browncoat, especially one from another country.

And don't worry about any mistakes you may make. Lots of people born into English speaking countries can barely speak or write it properly.
