Anyone see it and have thoughts on why it didn't do better? I dragged my hubby to it, assured him he could enjoy it without ever having watched a single episode......but he said it was too complicated, with too many characters to keep track of.
Hi Elenilsa - don't know why the yanks hated it, but it's done pretty good business in the UK (I myself have watched it twice at the cinema
there's already a few Serenity threads knocking about here, but here's one of them http://www.chronicles-network.net/fo...light=serenity
My thought's on it's (very few!) bad points are in there too - personally, I loved it - big Firefly fan, but I think in this case, the perceived 'Geek' factor worked against Joss Whedon and American audiences didn't bite - shame, but I think it'll more than make its $40m dollar budget back on DVD sales, the reviews and press were generally good and the cast would like to do another, so I don't think the franchise is dead yet, although Joss Whedon will probably do Wonder Woman before he goes back there.
