It's interesting, I watched Firefly for a long time without having any idea that there was Chinese in it. I just thought they were speaking gobbledegook.
Since discovering they are attempting to speak "Chinese", it has become a fun game to try to figure out what it is they think they are saying. Sometimes you can make sense of it, but sometimes I suspect they are either mixing dialects or their language coach was teasing them.
In any case, I certainly hope nobody is picking up "Chinese" from Firefly! Even if more than half of the consonants were pronounced correctly -- they aren't -- the lack of tones is infuriating. It would be like learning English from a show that neglected to include any vowels.
Just so that your readers know that at least a few of us are aware just what a mockery Firefly's Chinese is. I would call it a noble effort, but it appears no effort went into that aspect of the show at all. Otherwise, it was a great show.
