Its been a decade and people still arent over Firefly. I think that hardly makes it disposable. I mean how often do you see petitions to bring Dark Angel or Freakylinks back ten years after the fact. I doubt in 10 years anyone will be clamoring for them to bring back Terra Nova, but im sure there will still be Firefly cast reunions at cons.

Having watched Cowboy Bebop in 1995 (!!!) I was entirely unimpressed by Firefly.

My kids have Firefly wallpaper on their ipods. They beg me to watch the series again. We just finished watching a second time around Christmas, so I'm putting them off a little so it stays desired instead of boring to them. We watch Castle only because of Nathan Fillion.

My parents now sort of like it and watch it with us when we visit.

Don't tell me Firefly will pass into the unknown abyss.

kroonermanblack: But what's animal collective?

It three guys from Baltimore who do electronica music. They're good for this one song My Girls, but after that they kind of take a nose dive in terms of quality. I was still in college when they were "getting big" and nobody I knew hyped them at all. It's slow and repetitive, so I thoroughly expect it to not be your kind of thing.

Step Two: stop calling every minor activity in your life noun-"hacking".

I've never heard anyone hype animal collective. AD and Community are two highly enjoyable shows, but its understood that we're talking about entertainment that are tailored to one's tastes. To me those are the funniest shows alike Archer and Scrubs, so I recommend them to people who have enjoyed those common shows.

Also, just don't say something is the best thing ever and get rid of stupid awards.

Just here to say that Arrested Development is masterful art that will surely stand the test of time.

I will never argue the idea that Radiohead is overrated (I can admit they're talented, but not my cup of tea). However, Community, Arrested Development, and Firefly are, in fact, fabulous. Eat a bag of dicks, subtard.
