"The theme music to Firefly is some of the most vile, insipid crap I have ever experienced. At least they created a new Genre with Chinese-Space Country/Western. Now uncreate it please."

I like this list, lol.

On the choice of enterprise as worst credits, I had this to say:

"Yeah the enterprise song... I wondered originally why I started watching ent, and it was because of that Calling song, I couldnt get it out of my head at the time.

Ironically, the enterprise theme is actually a pretty good song, imo. It's sorta inspiring, it's a nice tune. And enterprise did not live up to it. That was my problem. If the show was about a struggle to get off the ground, even figuratively (which, lets face it, even the pilot was only vaguely about that) then maybe, MAYBE vocals in a star trek credits would have worked... but.... *shudder*."

On the choice as firefly as the best, I said this:

"Ah the firefly theme... yes, excellent choice.

To those who don't get why it's there: watch the show. The song grows on you the more you understand what the show is about. The song (which was written with the show in mind) is a thematic and moral summation of the show. It doesnt tell you what the show is about plot wise, it tells what you should be looking for in the show, theme-wise."

P.S. FMF, I am anonymous person there only because I am too lazy to make an account.

"But, these strong women characters?"

Penguin was quoting someone said about the Firefly music, not posting his/her own opinion.

EDIT: Aw, shucks, looks like I got beat to it.

I personally love the Firefly theme. I loved it before I ever started watching the show, actually, and that's the reason I actually started. Hee.

This is wholly unsatisfying as a first post.

Sometimes, I laugh. Other times, you make me laugh. The rest a' the time, I'll be in Jayne's bunk.

As happy as I am that Firefly made number one, I do have one beef with the creator of the list. Babylon 5 so does not deserve to be on the worst list. That was one of the first sci-fi series (along with Farscape) that I really enjoyed. Granted, I never got the chance to see every episode, but the ones I did see were really good.

And cool name for the web site, by the way.

EDIT: And does it seem like everyone is placing an inordinate amount of emphasis on theme music? What about, I don't know, plot lines? Character development? Any of these ring a bell?

deepgirl187: The list wasn't about that stuff. It wasn't indicative of the actal show, but it was rating the best and worst opening sequences. That's why the thread has so much emphasis on them music and openings.

Sometimes, I laugh. Other times, you make me laugh. The rest a' the time, I'll be in Jayne's bunk.
