Mal, for sure.

Or maybe Wash. No, no...definitely Kaylee. Or Simon. But then there's River. Gotta love River.

Ok, my head officially hurts. I can't do this. My favorite character tends to change from episode to episode.

Yeah, I'm the same as MEIMEIMEG on this one. Every time I try and pick a favorite, I remember what's so great about someone else :)

Mal, most of the time. There are moments, however, when Wash comes to the fore; and Jayne is just cool, with very funny lines expertly delivered; Kaylee always cute too; oh hell, I like 'em ALL!!! Don't make me choose!!

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Definitely Mal. We're a lot alike.

I can't pick a favorite either, but I think I identify with Simon the most. I mean we're both pretty smooth with the ladies after a mudder's milk or two.... But seriously, that's what I love about Firefly; all the characters are great.

Ummm...

Kaele for sweets and heart.

Simon for awkwardness and trepidation.

Inara for class, and the fact that somehow you know she smells fabulous.

Wash for funnies and the thing he does with his lips.

River for the lucid faces she pulls after some surreal utterances.

Zoe for balls, brains & beauty.

Book for being tough (and occasionally appearing to be a distant descendant of John Shaft).

The man they call Jaaayne for just about everything; thuggery, muscles, occasional rank stupidity & being the boy who just doesn't quite get it.

Mal, Mal, Mal. For it all.

Do you who else I adored? Saffron. If...WHEN...it all kicks off again, they have to bring her back. She was magnificent.

I've been in love with Nathan since his days on One Life To Live, so Mal's my first choice.But I do tend to relate to River the most. Otherwise,I couldn't pick a favorite ,even with Vera aimed at me.They all have their endearing qualities making it impossible for me to choose.

Tough one, like all the other responses here I have my reasons for liking one over the others in certain situations.

Overall, though, I think it would have to be Mal. I know that he's the hero and I supposed to say that, but it's still true. He's the one I identify with the most.

I will, though, have to give Simon a vote for my favorite funny person. The deadpan irony of his humor is perfection for me. I love it. "Could you not do that while we're...EVER?!" Sublime.

MAL - Just the perfect all round goodish guy ;-)

Jayne - run's a very close second.

Kayleigh - because she's Kayleigh.

Although to be honest as a pack I think they roll of each other perfectly.

My son has just watched the boxset ( he's on holiday ) and said afterwards that although the show is very good none of the main characters get killed. Why has it been cancelled ect. So I gave him Serenity to watch, he loved the film but wants to know how they can bring back the seris with two main characters forever missing and two good ones he said.

Now for an 18 year old he has been quite succinct in pointing out that Book had plenty of potential for stories/flash backs ect. Wash on the other hand was his favourite character ( something about a silly moustache)and he couldn't understand the logic of the deaths.

I think he now understands people's literal love of this show and also understands that all the characters made the show.

He still wants to know how it can be brought back without the two characters. I had no answer and have yet to read a good one. I'm just glad he's not 13 anymore, that would have been a good conversation to have.

Why have they taken the Sky away from ME

Wash. Hands down Wash. He is pretty much why I love firefly. The plot and other characters are awesome but his one liners and funny little...comments just put the show over the top and literally make me laugh out loud, so does Mal though but Wash for sure. I saw the BDM before the seires and when I drew closer and closer to OiS I got very sad 'cause I knew that all that was left was Serenity, a movie in which my favorite character meets an unfortunate end to a plank of wood...

Inara, and I have no idea why. For some reason, I just "get" her more than the other characters, or at least I think I do.

My second would be a tie between Mal and River. Mal, because... well, I don't know to explain to you guy. You understand. River, because she is probably the most interesting character on the show just in terms of how she thinks.

It goes without saying (which is of course why I'm saying it) that I love them all, though.

Potentially my favourite character is a tough call. Mal is my evil twin, my heart belongs to Kaylee, and I keep dreaming about making out with River. But I'm a real sucker for girls in coveralls, so I guess Kaylee takes the cake.

I just love Simon, he is my favorite, followed by Saffron then a close tie between Kaylee and Inara. But there are so many things abbout all the characters that I love!!! This show was so well written you just love each of the characters for specific reasons. But yes, Simon is my favorite.

You are so right DonCoat!

I almost cried when she got all tore up in the BDM. It just hurt sooo much to see that.

Otherwise I've got to go with Mal and River.
Thay are broken people and that makes them deep characters. Also I can identify with it. And for smaller reasons as well. I'm in lust with Mal and River shares my affinity for bare feet.

They are followed closely by Wash, and Jayne, and Kaylee. Oh and Book...

River, hands down, for two main reasons: We're both a little leaky in the brainpan (her a lot, me, not so much), and she's only a few years younger than I am. And she's a dancer who can kill me. How could I not respect that?

Next on my list of favorites is Jayne. Come on, he's the hero of Canton!

I love every character in their own way, but really have to go with is Book. He has more of a connection to the rest of the world than the other characters, except Inara. He has what seems to be the most complex background and more confusion and complication being involved with the crew than anyone else.
I enjoy watching Jayne the most. It's the whole lack to loyalty to River that makes him not my favorite. He shows some respect for Simon a few times during Serenity, but once again turns on River. It took me a long time to realize how significant that scene in the movie is. It happens so quickly, but is to me the lowest point of Jaynes character throughout the entire series.

As someone said before, I can't choose really because they all have such good things about them. That being said, the ones that i relate to most/am most like is some combo of Mal (sense of nobility, overall), Wash (sense of humour), and Simon (general geekiness and inexperience w/ladies).
Still kind of upset about Wash, seeing as i loved him since the dinos, but this reminded me somehow of something I read somewhere else that i can't remember, an expansion on the Chuck Norris legends:
Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried. Except, when Wash died, Chuck Norris cried a single perfect tear.

It doesn't seem like I should have a favorite, since the entire crew is a perfect conglomeration (wow, can't believe I just typed that) of complex and fascinating characters, but that being said ...

WASH, WASH, WASH!

(I'm sure I didn't surprise anybody.)

I have given this some thought & it is a tough choice but this is the order I would place them from favorite to least favorite.

1. Mal - Simply the most important character in the show and it could not continue without him. He is also a very entertaining character that is uncompromising, funny & a bad ass.

2. Jayne - I like him mostly for his humor. I think he is the funniest character on the show. With just a few words and a funny look he just cracks me up. "Are we gonna clone him?"

3. River - I am very impressed with summers acting on the show & most of her dialogue is simply poetry.

4. Wash - Funny and a bad ass pilot.

5. Simon - love for his sister is endearing and a big part of the heart of the show.

6. Zoe - I love the comradery she shares with Mal. The loyalty and the love she has for him. I would have loved to see how her relationship with Mal played out over a series. I don't think they would have ever been a couple but i think she loves Mal as much as Simon loves river, perhaps in the same way.
7. Kaylee - Very sweet and a joy to watch, The soul of the ship.

8. Inara - Beautiful and an interesting relationship with Mal.

9. Book - A great character that probably would have moved up the list if the show had continued and we had the chance to see him develop and learn more about his history.

I have two favorite characters for two different reasons.

First is Wash. I mean, how could you not like the guy? I was a Alan Tudyk fan years before Firefly even came out, so this is a no-brainer.

Second is Jayne. This is mostly due to character development. I think Jayne really had the potential to be a really multi-faceted character had the series not been cancelled. There could have been some interesting storylines regarding his past and his relationship with the crew. Sadly, FOX network decided to torture and punish us all.

At last.

Mal - definitely my favourite character, but difficult to explain why. He's a perfect leader, determined, loyal, tought... hot
Simon - cute, sweet, loyal -the perfect brother, in my opinion. Somone who can be trsuted totally.

Just my two cents.

My favourite? Out of everyone of our BDH?

It's...it's....it's.....(insert the Liberty Bell March here. )

SPLAT.

Okay, seriously, I don't think I can rightly choose 'cause at some time or another, they've all been my favourite. I think my first favourite was Simon, when he drugged Jayne...and then caucused. 'Course later Mal was my favourite when he pushed the henchman in the engine. For me it's not a episode-to-episode thing. It's a scene-to-scene thing.
