I am just curious of how many people plan on buying the DVD on the 23rd of June. If so and they already have a copy, what do they plan on doing with the extra or extras? I am thinking about getting 1 and giving it to the local library. But the branch nearest me is really small. There really isn't much I can do to celebrate the day.


Note: Now, I am not saying that this is the only way to celebrate Serenity Day or anything like that. Let's please not go down that road again.

I am! It's killing me not to do it right now but I don't have enough spare cash to buy two this month. My new friend hasn't finished watching all the episode yet and I really want to give it to him when he finishes.

I'll be buying the box set of Firefly and the BDM.
I figure I can loan my extras out, or something. I don't really know--didn't think about it that much .

Also, on Amazon, why is the full screen version of Serenity $2.00 more than the widescreen? For some reason I always figured it went the other way around.

Entirely pointy.


I bought one at Walmart when it first came out. I was just thrilled that they had it. Then, I discovered it was a full screen version (I wanted wide screen). So, I bought another and gave the first to a friend. I have since misplaced my widescreen version. I have both the BDM and BDS on VHS. I plan to order both from Amazon on DVD on 6/23

I'm buying at least 5 Serenity movies along with accompanying BDS (Big Damn Series) for various amigos who I know will love them, but aren't into the 'Verse yet.

Plus, I'm buying the whole ep series for a friend via iTunes.

Hope this all helps, but I enjoy spreading the word in any case.

I'll have little cash on my person after the purchase of my pinball machine to be converted, but I still plan to buy at least one disk and give it to someone I feel is a potential convert. He likes Cowboy Bebop, and while I've never seen that cartoon, many here have said Firefly and it are similar. I've already found a friend who is an expert (comparitively) on pinball repair and LOVES Firefly! I've told him to visit this site, so he might do the same as me.

Already bought both the BDM and BDS and on it's way to Iraq. It's going in care of a Browncoat Navy Corpsman that put out a call for some SciFi for a little library he's establishing for some Marines. Hopefully it'll make a few converts.

BTW the blog is at www.docinthebox.blogspot.com

I'll see if I have enough $ left to replace my lend out copy of the BDM on the 23rd. It went out and hasn't been returned-hope it's doing some good circulating. I just get too nervous not having a 2nd copy to stay in the house when I lend it out. If my lend out copy returns the new one will go to the library.

America loves a winner!


Already have 1 copy, but dunno what I'll do w/ he 2nd. Might keep one 'to loan' , much like I have w/ the Firefly set.

Gonna try to walk in a couple of places and purchas it. But I won't be going on some holy quest. If it comes down to it, I'll order it online, which means it'll be a week or more before I get the copy. But I'll have 'purchased' it on the 23rd.

I set myself a budget of about 120 Euros ($US 150), and will see what I can get for that.
I'm probably gonna sent money to a fellow Browncoat in the US so they can purchase it from amazon.com (too expensive and not very efficient if I order it from amazon.com, what with taxes and toll fee and postage to Germany) and distribute it.
I'll also get a few copies of the German DVD and the German Limited Edition from various sources (amazon.de and local stores) to give to friends, local libraries, and cute chicks.
Just for giggles, I might order the HD-DVD and stare at it in awe or something, but I think I'll rather give that money to Equality Now. I'm gonna donate 50 bucks to them via the link on www.cantstoptheserenity.com (including whatever's left from the DVD budget.) either way.

You know, people have complained that this will only show that a few fans are way to crazed about the show. I disagree. This will show that those few fans have WAY too much money on their hands. And that's what they want.

I was going to order the series, because I don't have it yet (I know, I know, shame shame shame), but my wife up and ordered it for me for Father's Day. She doesn't think I know about it yet, but what else would she order from Amazon and tell me not to open the e-mail? Sorry, I'm not one of you with too much money, so that will have to do.

That's probably true - look at how much cash that hard-core Star Wars and Star Trek fans throw down. But I don't think of fans as "crazed" - my uncle blows all of his money on cars that he rebuilds and races to a consistent loss of profit. Why? He enjoys it. Is he any crazier than someone who likes a series? Or sports fans? And I hate to see Browncoats knocking Browncoats as we're "all on the same side" since we love the show and movie.

Seeing how the DVDs are being used as donations (and charity is always a good thing) and spread around which will, in turn, bring in new people, it's not crazy (it's future generated revenue) - if we were hoarding those DVDs in our houses and letting them gather dust - that's crazy.

Or buying them so we could run them over with steam rollers the way they did with Beetles merchandise back in the day . . .that's crazy. I never really got that - spending money that goes to the comapny to destroy it's merchandise . . .ah well. The nuances of such a protest are lost on a prole like me, I suppose.

I'm gonna do my best to order the series and movie from amazon.com. I'll be out of town and probably far away from computers, but I'm gonna try and find a way.

Afterwards, when I received the copies, I'm gonna go shoot two random people in the knee caps with a shotgun, and then give them the series and BDM to apologize. I'm sure that after watching them, both people will be entirely too happy and grateful to call the police.

SO i am going to give them to my mother. I have been talking her ear off about the show since I started watching it. Hopefully she watches them and loves them and becomes a super fan like me so I can say that I recruited at least one Browncoat. hehe....

Works out perfectly that June 23rd is my first payday with the new job! So to celebrate I'm buying both the BDM and BDS (already have a copy of each) but my copy of the BDM is full screen (Target was all out of widescreen when I went) and having a second copy of the BDS will be helpful in the lending it out process (right now I can't bear to part with it).

"...I thought I was going to be one of the only ones."
As a Browncoat you're never an "only".
Remember, "When you can't walk you crawl and when you can't do that find someone to carry you"
I'll be buying on the 23th, locally I hope but failing that Amazon.com. I just bought "Firefly Sound Track" from Amazon. I know I should have waited 'til the 23th but I had to have a copy in hand for Greg Edmondson to audiograph at the Lone Star Shindig this weekend.
Anyway, since I already have 2 copies of "Serenity" like Embers I'll be sending this new copy to anysoldier.com. Sending stuff to the troops makes you feel like a Big Damn Hero.
