    Okay, I am a Browncoat, a huge Firefly fan, because of the characters and dialogue.... but yeah you did have to overlook some of the "technical" blunders.

    Actually the Firefly solar system was supposed to include nearly 100 terraformed planets, moons and asteroids, in a complex system that included three or four actual stars (multi-star systems are actually common) and several brown dwarves.

    Yeah, it was still a stretch. The thing that got me was a line that said "giving them (planets/moons) something like earth-normal atmosphere and gravity..."

    Taking a moon and giving it Earthlike gravity??? Or an asteroid?? That would be quite a trick. FTL is less of a stretch of the imagination, than believing that a STL colony that managed to lose half of their technology, still knew how to alter a moon's gravity to 1g but sent colonists out with a mule, a blanket and an axe.

    THAT was a stretch. Still, the characters and dialogue, acting and plotting were SO GOOD that you really worked hard to ignore sci/tech inconsistency.

    I loved that show, hated that it got canceled. Own the series on DVD, must have watched every episode 20 times.

    No way. Walt came close to telling Jesse about how he let Jane die, while Jesse was on top of the ladder. That was great symbolism. And we also learn just how depressed Walt is. He wanted to die before that night when he let Jane die. Jesse wouldn't have been messed up by it, the plane crash wouldn't have happened, and Skylar never would have found out about his 2nd phone. Plus he was getting done with his manufacturing and had the money for his family. Everything would have been perfect for him to die then. It pointed out Walt's turning point and was amazing character development.

    Re: Lost last episode

    Okay, I think I know why the writers did what they did at the end. I think there could be a movie.

    BUT... they couldn't rely on any of the actors and actresses to actually be in any possible movie, or spin off, or whatever. You know how they are, they may not want the contract, they may be busy doing something else, etc, etc. (actors and their issues were a problem in the show itself) And we all know that if the movie included the same characters, the same actors would HAVE to play them. So, they eliminated that possibility with the ending they had. They shored up the character storyline. They resolved them, they gave us a happily ever after for our emotional investment in them. And, they made sure that any possible movie - or spin off - could not include them.

    The one character they left us hanging with is The Island. I'm betting that they'll do a movie or something about more of the history of the island. How it came to have protectors, more of what it is, how it works, and why. And answer those much more in depth questions that they just couldn't answer in the confines of the show.

    Sure, which they didn't have in Firefly. So either way, the very premise is ridiculous.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Lost last episode

    This is actually pretty funny if you haven't seen it already. I follow this guy's column, so I've seen most of the videos he's done. But this one has Mark Pellegrino (Jacob) and Titus Welliver (MiB) in it.

    There are 5 parts, each less than 5 minutes long, I think.

    The end of Lost really wasn't that amazing, it left a bitter after taste in my mouth.

    Re: Lost last episode

    I thought the ending was quite good. It was actually able to give us both a happy ending and a tragic end (for Jack), juxtaposed one with the other. Moderately clever, I thought.

    I liked it. I am content.

    If they made a movie, they could still use Hurley and Ben. For that matter, they could use Kate, Claire, James, and I-see-dead-people-AsianGuy. They were all still alive in the actual timeline when the episode ended. The "afterlife" aspect of the ending could have taken place far in the far-distant "future"... for all we know Hugo could have remained Guardian of the Island for millenia afterward, no?

    Anyway, we'll see. I don't see the need for a movie myself, but if they think it would be profitable they might make one, and if they do I will watch it.

    I don't think they could use the folks that left the island because I don't think their off-after-island stories would be interesting enough. Plus... they're DEAD!

    Though, I *could* see them using Hurley and Ben. And Desmond, I guess.

    Which is kind of interesting to think about. The most naive, trusting, kind, and loving and fun loving person on the island (Hurley) stuck there with the most manipulative, conniving, ambiguous person on the island. LOL

    I watched it all the way through twice. The first time, in broadcast order and I really, really tried to like it, I just couldn't. Then, a year or two later, I re-watched it again in "intended" order because people swore it made a huge difference. It didn't make any whatsoever to me. It was crap both times through.
