Are there any other Browncoats here on Fluther?

Asked by Tantigirl (1697 points ) August 15th, 2008

Firefly would have to be one of my favorite shows of all time. I only discovered it after it was cancelled (damn you Fox!!!). Thank the gods that they came out with Serenity. So I’m wondering if there are any other devotees of Captain Tightpants and the rest of his crew. How many of us are there do you think?

(I’ll be in Jayne’s bunk while I’m waiting for the answers!!)

Yes! Yes! Yes, yes, yes! Are you excited for Dollhouse this fall? I am!

Tantigirl's avatar

Oh am I ever, lets hope this is a series that Joss will be able to keep going without the networks sticking their oar in!!

EmpressPixie's avatar

From looking at interviews, he seems to think it will be different this time. Also the Fox blog basically promised not to cancel before the end of the first season and acknowledged the horrible problems with Firefly and how it was handled, so I have hope.

Tantigirl's avatar

Ah, but can we believe Fox? Dare we?!!!

I know nothing of what you speak. I did look at the Firefly website and it looks pretty cool, especially since Ron Glass is in it. It will take some reading to figure out what you are all excited about, but I will tune in to Dollhouse if you say so….

by the way, who is Jayne and is there room for more in her bunk??

EmpressPixie's avatar

@Sueanne_Tremendous Jayne is a boy. And there is always more room in his bunk.

Tantigirl's avatar

Damn right asmonet. You folks make sure to avoid them reavers!!!

I saw Serenity before I even knew about firefly, and it became one of my favorite movies. Then I saw firefly in its entirety, and now its definitely one of my favorite shows of all time.

Tantigirl's avatar

Yeeeehaaaaa, another BDH just joined our fold…

asmonet's avatar

Hurray for Browncoats!

MissAnthrope's avatar

I like Firefly and Serenity a lot.. however, it’s been a while since I watched it and I don’t get the browncoat reference.. would someone explain?

KatawaGrey's avatar

The people fighting against the Alliance were nicknamed the Browncoats. (This is the side you want to be on)

MissAnthrope's avatar

Ah, okay. I have no recollection of that. Thanks. :P

KatawaGrey's avatar

Eh, don’t worry. took me a few re-watchings to figure it out too :)

asmonet's avatar

i still come here and read this thread. it makes me warm and fuzzy.

Tantigirl's avatar

I love that bit, we will rule over all this land, and we will call it….... this land. LMAO

juggle any geese lately?

mrswho's avatar

YES! YAY JOSS WHEDON and the best TV show that has ever aired! ! ! River: I can kill you with my brain… Also, Dr. Horrible’s Singalong blog was pretty amazing. Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer. UBER COOL! ! !

Tantigirl's avatar

Wahoo, another browncoat!! A question for you mrswho, are you a BDH?

mrswho's avatar

BDH? I suppose not… (what exactly does that stand for?)

Tantigirl's avatar

@mrswho: Oh my gorram heart!!! How can you not know what BDH is?!!!! Do you remember the episode called Safe, the one where they deliver the cattle and then Simon is kidnapped, along with River, because the people want a doctor? Captain Tightpants has to make the decision to leave them because Shepherd Book had been shot and they needed to get him help ASAP? Then they come back to find Simon and River, just as River is about to be burnt at the stake, when Mal and Zoe come in to save them making them BDH, which is short for big damn heroes. Please, please tell me you remember that episode Tantigirl is about to curl up in the corner in the fetal position sucking on her thumb because mrswho doesn’t remember what BDH is…

asmonet's avatar

We’re all BIG damn heroes.

mrswho's avatar

Yeah!!! I have a good explanation! I moved recently and misplaced all my DVDs, so its been a few years since I’ve seen that episode! My memory is problematic, no power in the verse seems to help it. Forgive me please :D

asmonet's avatar

If you’re in the US this might interest you! :D

You’re Welcome.

Tantigirl's avatar

@mrswho: okay then, all is forgiven. You know I was on the verge of hyperventilating, my husband had the paper bag ready and everything!!! Stick with us fluther browncoats, see how we look after each other? Asmonet is making sure you can get your fix!! ;)

asmonet's avatar

That’s what I am, an enabler. ;)

YARNLADY's avatar

Count me in. I watched the series from the very beginning, and the movie. I have everything on CD.

I’m not sure about Dollhouse, just because it’s the same actor doesn’t mean it will be anywhere near as good as the stories and writing was on Firefly.

asmonet's avatar

@YARNLADY: Actually… Alan Tudyk joining as Alpha made the series for me.

Tantigirl's avatar

@YARNLADY You love the series and the movie, so therefore, by definition, I love you!!! I also agree about Dollhouse. Not impressed by it all I’m afraid.

llewis's avatar

Love that show! Only found it on Hulu long after it was over. I think I watched the whole series in three nights. Love it!
