Yeah, the complete series!
> I've never seen Firefly
If you like SciFi at all, Fix this.
Watch at least three episodes.
I'm not kidding.
You can get the series for less than $25 on Amazon if you get it used.
If you're a bit morally ambigious, torrent it.
Hell, Hulu has a few episodes. Of course they don't have the common decency of putting up the first episode.
Ah. My comment was a bit of a crossover between Firefly and Of Mice and Men.
It does seem like the episode of Firefly where River Tam tears pages from a Bible might be linked to Jefferson's production of his own Bible.
Book: What are we up to, sweetheart?
River Tam: Fixing your Bible.
Book: I, um...
River Tam: Bible's broken. Contradictions, false logistics - doesn't make sense.
[she's marked up the bible, crossed out passages and torn out pages]
Book: No, no. You-you-you can't...
River Tam: So we'll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God's creation of Eden. Eleven
inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into
the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noah's ark is a problem.
River Tam: We'll have to call it early quantum state phenomenon. Only way to fit 5000 species of
mammal on the same boat.
[rips out page]
Book: River, you don't fix the Bible.
River: It's broken. It doesn't make sense.
Book: It's not about making sense. It's about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough
to change your life. It's about faith. You don't fix faith, River. It fixes you.
Reference: Memorable quotes for "Firefly" Jaynestown (2002).
Link for good measure.
Also, it makes me sad to see things like "Season 1" and "The Complete Series". Too Soon, production people, too soon.

BWAAAAHHHHHHAAAAAAHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAHA! Coming soon to an Earth near you:
All Life on Earth Extinguished by Warming of Deep Oceanbed Hydrates
by G.D. O'Shit
Date: April 1, 2014
WASHINGTON - Global warming took its final toll today. After melting the icecaps on both the north and south poles, global warming has gradually raised the temperatures of the deep oceanbed a full 1.5 degrees Celsius. This increased temperature has today finally "unlocked" millions of tons of deep ocean methane hydrates from its watery grave. Scientists had been working feverishly since 2009 to extract and burn off the hydrates gradually in order to avoid this catastrophe and generate enormous amounts of energy for consumer and commercial use in the process, but the work was started too late to make a difference due to the lack of funding and widespread public support. The situation was exacerbated by the accelerated pace of increasing solar luminosity due to an unexpected increase in sunspot activity which has dramatically increased the temperature of all planets in the solar system, including of course, Earth. In a sudden explosive outburst, the hydrates have sublimed back into the gaseous state, causing Tsunamis and ravaging the worlds coastal populations worldwide. The Earth's atmosphere has returned to a condition similar to that which existed before humans walked the Earth. The heavy concentration of methane gas in the atmosphere has made outdoor breathing impossible and has extinguished all human life on Earth except for a few of us living in pockets of uncontaminated air in caves and "Doomsday" vaults for VIPs. The increased concentration of methane in the air along with the existing oxygen has created a highly flammable mixture that we are watching carefully. We have banned outdoor smoking of cannabis and tobacco, but there is a distant thunderstorm brewing in the distance. Is that lightening? Oh NOOOOOOOO!!! The sky is burning, the sky is burning. Please don't take the sky away from me! Run for your ... <signal lost>
Ive got the original DVD set that i bought the day it was released.
And all of the above.
And all this...
But i guess im missing some of the RPGs and non reskin boardgames. :p
Price dropped sometime recently. I bought it at $50.
Firefly, has some high tech, gunfights, and tongue-in-cheek humor, though sadly it's only one season.
We have a series of DVDs you can buy here. Also, over the altar, instead of a crucifix, there's a well worn, slightly sticky poster.
Just get the complete series on DVD or Blu-ray and watch the episodes in the order on the discs (which is a very different order from how they were played when first on TV).
Enjoy - I envy you the chance to see it for the first time. Makes me wish I could forget it, so I could have the pleasure of watching it for the first time again.
You are missing this http://www.amazon.com/Firefly-Complete-Nathan-Fillion/dp/B0000AQS0F/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1320416655&amp;sr=8-1

Firefly and Serentiy
Jedi bathrobe or Sith
Straight razor kit and Razor
Eh, not that close. But I tried.
Yay for TV shows! Firefly please!
Thanks for the contest. :)
Judging by your wishlist, I think you would enjoy this comic book by the genius Zach Weiner-Smith, and his interactive book. Both reference 'geek culture', science, and pure fantasy a lot, and both come with the added plus of making you laugh!
I'd enjoy both Dr. Horrible and Firefly.
You can check out the product description on amazon. They're showed in the order they are on the dvd with their air dates.
> It was better when I watched it that way, I just don't think it's some amazing all time masterpiece.
I think the reason people are disagreeing with you is because you are kind of missing the point. It wasn't an all time masterpiece, but it was a great start. Compared to other series' that most would actually consider masterpieces (pretty much any star trek first season), the first season was pretty phenomenal. Maybe it's not for you, but I found it at least as enjoyable as the expanse, but they aren't really comparable as one is a light hearted character based show and one is an epic thriller that's constantly jumping around the solar system.
Ok so not sure how helpful this will be but you mentioned your dad liked salt. Have you thought about buying him some truffle salt?
also my dad is a huge beatles fan as well. I got him a book about the beatles a few years ago. I cant find the exact one I got him but I found this on amazon
Brother in law #1 - Maybe Firefly box set? It's a rad series.
For brother in law #2 maybe a year subscription to an audio book service like audible or something?

My girlfriend and I watch a lot of TV series. In no particular order here are some of our favorite series.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Walking Dead
I know there are some more I might be forgetting and I'll add them as they pop in my head. My favorite current series are Supernatural, Dexter, and True Blood. I recommend them highly.
If you haven't actually seen it - do yourself a favour. You won't be disappointed!!
Do you know people who like Firefly? Did they watch the original run? Check out the recent Amazon reviews on the DVDs, strange for a show that's declining in viewership. What about this, from Wikipedia:
>Joss Whedon, Tim Minear, and cast members Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin and Sean Maher reunited at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con for a 10th anniversary panel. Ten thousand people lined up to get into the panel, and the panel ended with the entire crowd giving the cast and crew a standing ovation.
Do you have the actual figures I can look at for sales and streaming, to show that it really is declining? I'd be pretty interested in that, but right now it looks like you're fighting my anecdotal observations with "nuh-uh," which is about as helpful.
