I hope he either gets to say "They don't like it when you shoot at them, I worked that out myself" or "We are too pretty for God to let us die" or somesuch at any point.

Ooh!  Or maybe, "The Covenent said they were gonna waltz through Mombasa Valley and we choked 'em with those words. We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty ..."

Nixorbo,  Not only is Nathan Fillion in Halo 3, but Alan Tudyk and Adam Baldwin as well.  It's like a 1/2 Firefly reunion.  Until you accidentally blow one of them up with a stray plasma grenade.  Also John DiMaggio does the voice for the Brute Chieftains; the guys with the big ass hammers.

I just watched the behind the scenes DVD and they showed Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin doing some lines.  "More shooting would be better, thank you!" is clearly a Mal line, and while I forget most of the line Adam did, it ended with "and you got a real pretty mouth too."  I don't even think I want to know the context in which he says that.

I adore the Firefly and the Serenity as well  smile It really kicks ass, Joss Whedon's shows are all amazing. And the characters are hilarious, especially Wash and Reynolds.  big grin

@Rod: You didn't mention the part where Nathan Fillion's Marine is named Sgt. Reynolds, which gave me a raging nerdgasm.  He didn't have a "The Covenant said they were gonna walk through Mombasa Valley ..." speech, but his name more than makes up for it.

I'm pretty sure I heard Alan Tudyk's marine last night in the desert stage, he yelled out "Pain!  Lots of pain!" which makes more sense if you remember his character from A Knight's Tale.  I was kinda hoping he would threaten to fong a Brute.

Apparently Adam Baldwin's marine says something about grenades, which is definitely chuckle-worthy.

Oh man, I'm on the same page as you here, Pitt.

I can't get my head around MS' Xbox/Xbox 360 exclusivity crusade, what with Vista direly needing some properly supported titles to reel people in.

And yes, I got a huge kick out of seeing Tudyk in Firefly since his was my favourite character in A Knight's Tale (and he was named Wat, how great is that?) so this callback gets me tingly as well.

Nah. An SR-71 Blackbird looks cool. The XB-70 Valkyrie looked damn cool. A Firefly looks like a random assortment of plumbing fixtures bolted on a misshapen cardboard box with all the aerodynamic grace of a plummeting pallet of bricks.
But, of course, that's what it's supposed to look like, right? The Ford Transit or C-130 of space. A utilitarian lump of metal without any effort wasted on beauty or apparently any great concern given to atmospheric reentry characteristics (yeah, I'm sure that big flat cargo section won't cause any cataclysmic death-rolls or uneven thermal ablation of the external heat shield    wink ).

Yeah, but it's exactly why I like the ship. Because it looks so clumsy, but in a funny way, I think it does resemble to a bug, although I'm not sure if it's a firefly. For me it's rather like a space-VW Beetle XD

As for the arguement about its operability, I try not to think about such things while watching tv, or else I would go insane  smile

Don't think I'm completely nuts, I also like the looks of modern aircrafts so I perfectly understand your opinion, but I still find the Serenity somewhat fascinating.

The flat cargo section shouldn't be what you're worrying about. The fact that bits fall off it is surely far more disturbing?

It's designed to have pieces fall off.

Hmmm.

Anyways, I also like the design of the Firefly. However, I think we should see more TV space vehicles without internal gravity, since this is something that we're not likely to be able to manufacture for a long time. The space plane in 2001 remains one of my favourite movie spaceships because of the lack of gravity on board, something which very few films and TV shows have copied since. Perhaps it's the technical challenge, perhaps it's because artificial gravity is soemthing that all the young kids are into - who knows?

Artificial gravity shouldn't be too hard to do, as soon as some physicist can circulate muons in large number between two charged metallic plates-

At this point I stop typing as if I know what I'm typing about.

Yes, good you mentioned that tnuk. My only real peeve about Firefly (besides its criminally short run) was that in the episode Out of Gas, when EVERYTHING is broken, the ship hasn't even got power to circulate air or maintain internal temperature, somehow it still manages to keep the AG working so everyone can walk around comfortably on the deck.
Star Trek, naturally, is also guilty of this... the AG is always the very last thing to stop working.

I realize there's a bugetary reason for this, but that won't stop me moaning. There's nothing inherently wrong with magnetic boots.

Or velcro boots and a nice deep pile carpet. For every hi-tech solution, there's a cheaper option.

Example: Space-pen vs. pencil.

I know, I know, it's a myth, but a damn clever one.

And the velcro tearing sound would echo through the ship... everytime anyone moves it'd be all riiip, riiip, riiip, until some unkempt Australian misanthrope finally goes insane and kills the entire crew.

I'd like to see Christina Hendricks' boobage without internal gravity.

So there he possibly hints at something someone said a while back- that Joss might have an idea that could bring some corpses back. I had one too, but I don't quite know if it's any good. And it might be a little cruel too. What's the general opinion on the matter? How'd Wash and/or Book ever get resurrected?

Flashbacks. That's all.
The series is far too grounded in humanity to play on the old "I wasn't completely dead" routine, or any oddball sci-fi time-warping dead-raising crap.
That's what I think anyway.

This is how I always imagined finding out Book's backstory.

I am convinced that River knows Book's past, given everything we know about her.  I see a movie of three distinct timelines: Book's past, an event on Firefly-era Serenity, and post-Serenity, with River telling Book's tale.

Format sounds too much like Out of Gas, you say?  Well, I liked Out of Gas.

Sure, but we never see Wash as a corpse, and I don't remember no doctor taking his time to declare him dead. Shortly after the crew abandoned the ship, it's bound to have been crawling with reavers...

It's a close call between Out of Gas and Our Mrs. Reynolds for my second favourite episode. My favourite being shindig. Nothing will ever beat Shindig.

The Reavers aren't undead zombies, they probably ate Wash and the parts of him are long since digested and turned into energy which the Reavers used to rape and eat someone else!

I know they're not undead, but seeing as he'd have been all unconscious and all they might not have been as interested cmopared to if he'd been kicking and screaming. He might've come around a little bit and seen some pretty crazy shit like the guy in Bushwacked, perhaps?

It'd make for some potentially interesting "take him down without taking him out"-action. It may be far-fetched, but it's the best I can come up with.
