I don't have regular TV at home, either, but you can watch all of the Firefly TV series plus the Serenity movie on Netflix for a $7.99 one month subscription - then quit if you don't find anything else that you want to keep the subscription for. Probably cheaper than getting it all on DVDs, definitely cheaper than a night at the movies - 16 hours of entertainment, and as others have said, very Traveller-like.

Firefly is pretty darn good. Serenity is okay too, though, like myself, all the fans I've talked to preferred the TV shows. I've bought several sets over the years to give to various family members - to avoid them borrowing mine.

[No TV here either - suffer from acute advertisement adverseness... its a side affect of severe stupidity intolerance...]

Thank you for the information, but I believe that I will pass.

If she has a new game coming out that's great but it's a Traveller show.

We'll just continue to unofficially convert stuff for personal use only.


I gave up on TV a couple years ago too.
