Don't squat with your spurs on.


I saw the first episode aired on Fox (Train Job). I saw it written up in the paper and was looking foward to it becaue I liked Gina Torres from Hercules and Cleopatra 2525. Anyway, I thought the show was pretty good. But the defining moment, when I knew I was hooked, was when Mal kicked Crow into the engine.

I agree, when I watched the Train Job on Fox, I spent most of the time thinking to myself that I like these characters, but I don't feel drawn to anybody. Why should I feel sorry for these people, they are thiefs. Then Crow got kicked into the engine, and I was like Whoa! This ain't just any other show this is way different. Then they gave the medicine back and that gave me a reason to want to like them and cheer for them trying to exhist in the dark corners of the verse.

Agreed, I was hooked at that point.

I fell in love with the show at the end of 'Out of Gas', and the look on Mal's face upon seeing Serenity in the distance:

"Tell you what, you buy this ship, treat her proper, she'll be with you for the rest of your life."

...and Fux didn't let them show it, because...why? it was too interesting? not enough s**t blowing up? they had a hot episode of Chains of Love to show instead? WHAT?!




The pilot ep., when Mal looks into the cryo chamber and spots a naked River. Says our Big Damn Hero: "huh?".

Where else do you see the Hero lost for words like that? Loved the show from that moment on.

I was a bit of a harder sell.

I think it was in Jaynestown when Simon says "You're pretty. . .pretty" because it was just such a SAD pickup line but so perfectly delivered. And then he screwed up the next morning! And then, once he gets his ass handed to him, Kaylee is pretty forgiving.

It was just so "real" that I fell completely in love with the writing, acting and characters.

For me, it was in 'Bushwacked" where the crew is being interrogated. Zoe tells the dude very firmly that her and Wash's marriage isn't any of his business. Then it cuts to Wash talking about how he loves Zoe's legs. I thought it was such great writing and acting and I was hooked.

I did'nt get a chance to watch it on Fux. I had a friend lend me a VHS that had a mix-match number of episodes. So for me the first episode I saw was Out of Gas. I knew I found something unlike anything I've ever seen, when Mal see's Serenity off in the distance. I dont know exactly why I so connected with that moment. I somehow feel like I'm also searching,but havent found the perfect thing yet?

Wierd huh?

I first caught the show when it aired on SciFi as a run up to Serenity. The first episode I saw was Shindig. I came upstairs and turned on the Tele, and I caught Jayne and the crew plotting to save Cap'n Tightpants. And then Enter River. Her little monologue about Badger was amazing, her accent was spot on, and the switch from playing with her big brother to psychoanylyzing the "Sad little king of a sad little hill" was what got me hooked.

Then when I got the DVD last Christmas, so I watched it all the way back home from California. So I guess the other thing what got me was Nathan/Mal's pep talk to Bendis. "We're not gonna die, you know why Bendis? Because we're too pretty for God to let us die." Totally unlike any other war "We'll be fine" line ever.

My 7 year old son and I were watching the pilot yesterday (he was home sick) and he laughed outloud at that line! We were watching it b/c he wanted to see the scene with Wash (his favorite character) and the dinos - that's the scene that hooked him!

Train Job, first time around, about 3 minutes in:

Zoe lookin' for help against the U-Day supporters: "Jayne?"
Jayne: "Hey, I never fought in no war! Best o'luck though!"

For some reason this just ticked my funny bone.

looking back now, id wana say the first line of the pilot, but if im honest it had to be the sword fight scene in shindig, (or more over the inara and mal practising scene right before it.) thats when i knew it was special.

What totaly clinched me howevere was the
"You guys gunna still be here when i get back?" Mal's line from out gas, still chokes me up, as it did the first time.
heard that line- had lump in my throat, and went whoa, i care about these characters this much!

I really enjoyed it right from the 'serenity' pilot, but Ariel really got me addicted... why?...

"Two by two, hands of blue, two by two hands of blue", those guys are well scary and it really highlighted River's powers and I found myself so utterly intrigued by the show and where it was going, the episode also gave Jayne a chance to shine and show a lot of depth to his character which I really liked.

This thread is just evil, you can't limit yourself to just one fantastic moment, they all joined together to form the biggest people magnet EVER!!

I would have to say that the moment that made my fall in love with the show was in Ariel (first ep i saw, since my friends wanted me to watch them out of order...idiots) Anyway, at the very end when Jayne has his face pressed against that glass and tells Mal to make up the reason why he wont be around anymore...i knew that Jayne was a complex character nd i wanted to see the rest of the series to try and figure him out.

it was when i saw a tv spot for serenity back in october 2005. it looked so great- a down and dirty sci fi opera with humour and great effects as well as characters who you know can be related to. it also had killer lines such as

'you'd better shoot me now.' river cocks gun. 'or, we could talk more.'

and

'faster, faster, faster would be better!'

and of course the classic

'do you wanna run this ship?'
'yeah'
'well...you cant'

after that i knew that i would love the film and the series and that nothing in the 'verse could stop me from watching either!

"can we vote on the whole killing people issue?"

I'm a Brit. Without cable.

So...I'm sitting in the cinema end of last year, and a trailer comes on...

"Oh," I think, "It's that bloke from 'A Knight's Tale', and bloody hell, that's Caleb." Cue sniggers at the whole "This is your Captain..." speech.

Meanwhile, husband is getting overly excited at the space battle which then occurs.

"We have to see this film when it comes out."

"Yeah. Looks like fun." Thinks. "But wasn't this based on some U.S sci-fi show?"

So he got me the boxset for Christmas. And so I got to see it all in order before I saw the movie. And partway through Serenity I & II, I got kinda distracted from the oh-so-pretty man in the brown coat, 'cos there was something big and nasty and armed, smirking with a large knife...

Then the plot bunnies mugged me.

Luckily, I am married to a very understanding man.

I watched the show, on a friends recomendation. I watched it alone, with no one to talk to. So it grew on me gradually. I liked it, did not love it.

Then I met Saffron and I just thought that ep was so funny and great, but questioned whether I was in lust as opposed to in love.

Then I saw "Jaynestown". Not saying it is the best episode. But my moment was when the singer belted out "Jayne" for the first time - suddenly the characters I was coming to know became so real in their reactions and the whole reason for the show - that family - snapped into place.

See how I'm not punching him, I think I've grown!

I came to be a Browncoat very late in the game... I remember seeing one episode from the time Fox aired it (don't ask which one) and liked it, but wasn't spending a lot of time with the tube so missed any others. Once the movie came out I knew I had to see it, but missed it in the theaters (ducks the tomatos )...

So, on blockbuster online I ordered the movie and watched it four times before returning it and buying it the same day. It wasn't full on LOVE yet but I dug it big time! No single moment jumps out, but the end with Mal and River and his talkin' on Love hit me good.

That was about the same time that SciFi Channel aired the episodes. I didn't know they were on until I happened on Out of Gas. From the opening scene, slow zoom on the ship and interior empty then Mal falling bleeding, to the end and his first view of Serenity I was transfixed. I cried throughout the whole episode (yes, I'm a sap!) and knew my life would never be the same again. I purchased the series disks that week!

I went on the internet that very night and bought the firefly dvd's and two weeks later I was in heaven. I actually cried when we saw the last one.



Hi, Rosa! Have a strawberry! Grown on my very own sunny kitchen windowsill, too...

My hook moment was exactly the same as yours, when the camera pans in to Nathan and Alan on the bridge. My little brother had the benefit of seeing the series first and maintains that though the Mal shooting Dobson bit was his initial hook, the whole of Shindig was crucial for turning him from an avid watcher into a Browncoat.

I first saw the original pilot episode Sernity part 1 and 2 when SciFi channel aired the series to prep for the BDM's release in theaters. There were several moments that hooked me.
FIrst the look on Mal's face when he sees that it is not his angels coming in for a landing in the valley for that much needed backup. THe disbelief and shock on his oh so fine and pretty face really said something to me. Then it was Wash and his dinosaurs "Yes, everything looks good from here...we shall rule over this land and call it...this Land. I think we should call it your grave! Ah curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal..." Yep, it had me crying from laughing so much. Next came that moment when we see why Serenity is a Firefly and that fantastic musical cue that goes with it. That was it and I was hooked and this was something special.

Then it was that little moment where we see Jayne and Mal bring in the cargo and Kaylee is all excited about passengers. Mal says if she can every stop being cheerful and how they could duct tape her mouth and throw her in the hold. She leans over and kisses Mal's cheek. "I love my captain" she says and Mal gives her this sweet smile. She loves her captain and so do I.

I watched this with my brother and my mom who had taped the first run of eps shown on the SciFi channel. When the first part was over I turned with this huge grin and said "okay..now where is the next one! You gotta put it in." My brother likes to take credit for getting me into it becasue he taped them first. Well if I had had cable I would have found them too. Oh well credit where credit is due I suppose.

I also love the part when Kaylee is shot and the reaction we get from Mal. I love Kaylee and Mal's relationship. And the scene where Mal tells Simon Kaylee's dead, the way it was filmed and the look on his face and then showing the rest of the BDM's on the bridge laughing thier butts off. And Kaylee's converstion with Mal. "you just gotta have faith in people..."

Beautiful. And now the rest is history and I am one of many who wear that dusty Brown coat with pride and who wish to sail in a Firefly.

The very first scene when you realize these aren't Federation or Space Ranger goverment sanctioned do gooders, but freelance, lets make a buck when and where we can kind of people. The kitchen table that looks like it belongs at Goodwill with all its chairs that don't match. Wash playing with toy dinosaurs while waiting for the rest to finish the job. "Cry baby cry." I knew there wasn't going to be a well groomed captain saying "Make it so", every episode. In other words Joss lets you know immediately this is not outerspace but an adventure and welcome aboard. So you see I did not see the show orgibally on FOX. I bought the DVD's and got the opportunity to see them as in the sequence they were meant to be shown. This was a great benefit. It is just one of those days that felt like Christmas when I placed that DVD in my drive. I hope you all got that same feeling.

The scene that did it for me was at the beginning at the cliff:

Lund: I'm thinking someone should put
you down, dog. What do you think?

Mal: I'm thinking we'll rise again.

And then Serenity rises up behind them. Then I just had to keep watching.

For me, (I saw The Train Job first, when FOX aired the episodes out of order,) it was when the Belly-dancer came across the screen and handed the piece of paper to Mal. From then on I knew I wanted to see what adventures Our Crew would go on. Then FOX screwed me over by airing the episodes out of the order they were meant to be seen!

I was a late bloomer, so initially it was River’s character in the BDM. When I first watched Firefly, it had to be the part when Mal tells Simon that Kaylee is dead, and then it cuts to all of them laughing their heads off. It was so wrong, yet so funny. I knew from then on that this was the show for me!

Mine is far less obvious than some, like kicking someone into an engine, or shooting them cold in the cargo bay... although those were good too.

"Our Mrs. Reynolds"
In the teaser (that's the first five minutes) when Saffron tells Mal.

"Sir, I'm your wife."

And Nathan Fillion gapes at her, then *blinks* like that will just make it go away.

In the pilot episode (Serenity), when Serenity Valley is bombarded and it zooms in on Mal's face. Everything he ever believed in, he ever valued, is gone in the blink of an eye and you see him lose it and his face completely captures his disillusion.

I saw the Serenity-Pilot on sci-fi. I was very eager to finally catch the only Joss Whedon show I'd managed to miss (though, go figure, I ended up missing the teaser and a little of act one). The dialogue seduced me, but the moment that make me realize I was in love was when Kaylee got shot. A bit morbid, I know, but, hey. The moment left me completely stunned. Kaylee? They shot Kaylee? The entire sequence was a work of art, the frenzy, the overlapping dialogue, the way that the intensity of the moment really highlighted the character dynamics and how every interacts with each other... I realized, suddenly, that this was more than just as show, more than just actors acting out words in front of a camera. This was a story, the kind that you can't find every pilot season. Wow, how sad was I that I missed it the first time around?

They do, don't they? The BDM does that to me too. I couldn't sit in the theater seats for very long last Thursday, so I tend to get up and stand in the back and watch. I was going to go out and get something from the concessions stand too, right after *this* scene or right after *that* scene... Then I figured I might as well just sit down.

I was totally hooked in "Our Mrs. Reynolds" when Saffron knocked-out Mal (with a kiss) and then Wash (with a kick), and then caused all that damage to Serenity, all in about 10-15 minutes of screen time. The surprise of learning she wasn't what she appeared to be, coupled with her devious craftiness, did it for me.

EEE-ZEEE. It was the first commercial I saw for it. It showed a couple of fast-paced cuts from the Reaver chase in the pilot and then the shot of the full burn in atmo, and the cut to Jayne's trimphant stand in the engine room. I got so excited I think I peed a little.

You were busy trying to get yourself lit on fire. It happens.


Mal pretends Kaylee is dead. Simon freaks out. Everyone has a good laugh at his expense. I was sold.

Plus, seeing Alan Tudyk plays with dinosaurs wasn't hindering the process any, either.

When I saw the movie on DVD, I realized, that I had (months ago) seen a commercial on it. I recognised the scene, where they discuss, what to do, and Jayne has another opinion, and Mal asks somethiong like: do you wanna lead the ship? Jayne - yes! Mal: Eh - you can't do that! (or similar - sorry, I have the German wording in my head).

It was just so "that's-how-live-is". Actually, that's how Joss is - being all genre-typical and then pulling the crap. Aaah, he's just great.

Anyway, so I realised, that I was kind of "in love" just from the commercial. The memory of the commercial stuck to me until I found it again in the movie (jumping up and down: I've seen this, i've seen this!). Two days later, I had the DVD of Firefly.

So that's my story.

You never know, who is in a pregnant woman. (Sometimes it's Jonah, though)
