I'm sure each of us has shared a Firefly episode or two with friends. So what kind of reactions did you get.

For example.. "I had on friend who got mad after his fourth episode because he was like, so now you get me hooked on this show and it's no longer on the air."

Another said, "When was this show on???"

Another said, "This is just like cowboy bebop"

Another said, "It's Caleb!"

So any other thoughts to share?

(this is my first post here!)

I was telling my freind about it, and then showed him some pictures I printed out, and he summed it all up:

"Looks like a good show!"



"But it will still be there... Waiting..."

"Where are the aliens?"

"I've seen five episodes already, why does everyone look... humanoid? Where are the aliens?"

"She's hot, I like her, no I mean her, wait who's she? Ohhh, I like her too. And there's another girl? Whoa, I like her too, cool show."

that's when I knew Roansrus was well and truly hooked.

For the first person I tried to get hooked I made a tape of all the US shown episodes and let her watch it on her own. Saw her a few days later and was joking around and made her (playfully) mad at me. So she pipes off with, "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you". Later she threatened her husband with a special Hell. He's hooked now, too. :)

I had a video xchange program going with my aunt and uncle, who are also big science fiction fans. They would send me Farscape and I would send them Firefly. They really liked the show; can't give a quote of anything they said but I got 'em hooked on it. I faithfully taped every single ep except for Ep. 2 and several that were preempted by the wierdest stuff Fox could throw at us... then the show got cancelled.

Usually, they're like:

Should I just smile and nod?

Interesting...yeah...sure...that's great...then they leave the conservation.

Torgo (That's from my friend, who I hooked on MST3k)

(Shows picture to same friend) Tight! Rockin'! (Only answer that sounds like they care)

"Okay know I'm scared" (I was praising Firefly/dissing Fox rapidly. They were scared)

Keep flyin'!

The first time I showed a friend of mine, the episode was "Out of Gas" and he just sat there throughout the show, completely silent. I was like, "dude, watcha think?" and then he looks back at me asking if he can borrow my tape. LOL!

Another time, I was watching "Our Mrs. Reynolds" and a group of my friends (4 of them) came by. Of course, I made them watch. All of them were laughing hysterically... It was such a trip. They really liked it. I remember it soooo well cuz it was a fond memory.

Another friend I got hooked on suddenly reads more on this board than I do. So you can tell what his reaction is. :)

VENA


for the most part I too get the smile and nod. Maybe she will shut up and move on to biology soon is their hope.

Then again it may have somthing to do with the very un-lady like giggles spilling out of my mouth.

One friend out right gave me the "whatever" look and told me shut up.

I suppose I was over-reacting. Thanks, though, for I'm on top of what episode is showing. (A reliable source told me Pumaman would not be aired.)

Thanks, and keep flyin'!
