This series is complete shit and should not be watched!

If you do watch this, you masochistic bastard, then..

  1. IMPORTANT - Watch Babylon 5 - (1994 TV show) according to Babylon 5 viewing order until the mention of Crusade.
  2. Choose to not watch Crusade.
  3. Watch Crusade its proper order, probably.

    • My notes may or may not be in any order, as my sanity was in question at the time.
  4. Regret having watched Crusade.
  5. Remember that I warned you.

A failure of a delivery boy is frozen for a thousand years, where in the year 3,000 he's an interstellar delivery boy who continues to fail a lot.

A hilarious and intelligent show, with many subtleties. Watch an episode or three, and if you're interested then you'll enjoy the rest. Highly recommended.

I watched a couple of seasons before my interest petered out. I want to do other things with my time.

The last of a powerful race tours time and space, regularly ending up in trouble.

Playful fun. Occasionally attempts to glide past some significant issues with time travel but is generally bubblegum. Doesn't take itself too seriously. Recommended.

Though I had seen a few episodes from earlier, I'm now watching since the 2005 reboot.

Firefly (2002) cast

A space-western with a motley down-and-out crew struggling on the edge of a semi-dystopian planet-spanning civilization.

Easily one of the best television shows I've ever seen. I don't just consider this mandatory, I will dog people to watch it. I bought two copies of this series just to give one away.

Let me stress this. This is a series so good that even after cancellation there was enough popularity to produce a movie. A movie for a cancelled series. The only one I've ever heard of. Serenity - (2005 movie) is itself mandatory viewing for those who have enjoyed Firefly.

Mandatory viewing. I have been brought to tears more than once.

  • Continues with Serenity - (2005 movie)

    • Serenity uses the same characters in the same world, but is not meant to progress story arcs from the series.
