I started watching the TV series Firefly on Saturday night.
I finished watching it today, but that's no huge feat considering only 14 episodes were made.

Anyway, this series really just reinforced what I already knew:

Joss Whedon is a fucking genius, and television studios are run by a bunch of gorram [insert Chinese "swearing"].

Still, the good news is that the film, Serenity, is coming out towards the end of the year.

Anyway, say what you like about Quentin Tarantino or Kevin Smith, nobody writes dialogue like Joss Whedon.

And that goes triple for Fox.

Nar, but I am a judgemental sort.

but then, 'Jeremiah' is a highly under-rated show.

Hmm... in a Joss Whedon show, someone making a speech like that is just as likely to get stabbed to death half way through it.

Long-winded philosophical mumbo-jumbo is sometimes great, but it is totally the opposite of what I was talking about when I said Joss Whedon writes the best dialogue.

He writes snappy, clever, fast-paced dialogue, which is why I compared him to Tarantino and Smith.

Which is the style of Whedon's shows - fast-paced action-adventure, which I don't think is what Babylon Five is all about, by I have to admit I haven't seen any of it.

It is on my to-watch list, however.

[b]Babylon 5[/b]...? That show gave me nightmares. Please, if only someone would get on with the stabbing.

[b]Firefly[/b] though, didn't seem all that bad, though it didn't intrigue me as much as it could have. I can't even remember it; I just have this vague sense of how I felt about the show.


But I will point a finger at the dialogue in [b]Stargate[/b]. From what I've seen of [b]Angel[/b], it's on the same page (though [b]SG[/b] has less extreme character conflict).

Damn codes.
