Watch Along with GMMR...FIREFLY - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

Watch Along with GMMR…FIREFLY

January 8, 2010 by  

UPDATE: Don’t forget we are starting ‘Watch Along with GMMR…Firefly’ starting on Monday. We’ll be talking about episode #1 on Tuesday. Do you have your copy yet?

The votes are in and the first ‘Watch Along with GMMR‘ show of 2010 has been chosen. In a tough battle between Freaks & Geeks and Firefly, the Browncoats were victorious. So starting next week I’ll be watching one new episode of Firefly each night and sharing my thoughts on it the next day.

Since the column is called ‘Watch Along with GMMR’, the whole idea is that YOU too will be watching Firefly with me and joining in on the discussion. I mean, it’s not really fun to watch by myself no matter how much Nathan Fillion is on my screen. Drop me a line if you’re going to watching Firefly with me starting Monday, January 11th. Come on, it’s one season – 13 episodes. You can do it!

Do you have Firefly: The Complete Series on DVD yet? If not, make sure you head out and get it before next Monday. If you’re thinking about ordering it online, the cheapest I’ve found it was at Barnes & Noble (~$26.00). And while you’re at it, you might want to consider buying Serenity, the theatrical movie based on the show.

I’m super excited…are YOU? I was first introduced to the Whedonverse through Project Buffy in 2008. Before Project Buffy I was most familiar with Joss Whedon’s work as the car rental agent on Veronica Mars and as the director of an episode of The Office. But now I get it. The man has a way of telling a good tale, and I just know that I’m going to love Firefly.

Oh and don’t worry Freaks & Geeks fans, you too have been heard. F&G will be the next ‘Watch Along with GMMR’ show! I pinky swear.

Ok so who is with me…

    I’m with you! I’ve got it reserved at the library and just have to go pick it up!

    For Firefly, I will find the time to watch with you. It is difficult to fit in with all my other shows, work, kids, homework help for the kids, etc. However, I can’t miss it. I love the show but have only watched it once all the way though. I can’t wait to check it out again.

    To anyone else, yes, you also need to watch the Serenity movie after the Firefly show. You will want to see more, and the movie is great.

    so excited! I’m making my friend who has never been to GMMR but loves all thing Joss Whedon join in on Project Firefly!! I keep telling her that she needs to be reading GMMR and this is just the excuse I need to hook her!

    I’m in! I’ve been looking for a reason to finally watch Firefly. I love me some Fillion. I’ll be a little off schedule because I’m going the NetFlix route (3-4 eps per disc), but I’ll do my best to keep up. Thanks for doing this!

  8. Amanda on January 5th, 2010 5:20 pm

    Woo! I’m in. I’ve seen it a bunch of times but I’m always looking for an excuse to watch it again. You won’t be disappointed.

  9. Sara V. on January 5th, 2010 9:55 pm

    Yeah!!! I love them both, but only currently own Firefly and Serenity, so I’m happy that’s number one in your queue. I’m out of town until the middle of next week, so hopefully I’ll be able to join in the party mid-week.

  10. Jenn on January 5th, 2010 10:42 pm

    Shiny! I’ll try to keep up with you but studying may get in the way. Either way I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts.

  11. Natalie on January 5th, 2010 10:50 pm

    I’m so in! Will definitely watch along with you! I know you will LOVE it!

  12. Cori on January 5th, 2010 11:33 pm

    I’m excited to watch it all again and be able to discuss it with someone other than my sister! Yay! 🙂

    You may not even need to buy it! Firefly is available on hulu. 🙂

    Firefly is on Hulu, but they only post 5 episodes at a time for some reason, with a new one added (and the oldest one removed) every Monday. Right now they have the last 5 episodes, so they should add the pilot (but probably only the first half of it) on Monday.
    TheWB also has 5 eps at a time, but replaces 3 each week.

    Cool. Went through my BluRay set once before. This will be a good reason to use them a second time.

  16. Faith on January 6th, 2010 9:15 am

    oh hells yes. i’m in.

  17. Alison on January 6th, 2010 6:20 pm

    I’ll be getting it on netlifx so I’ll try to keep up =]

  18. Agent52 on January 7th, 2010 6:00 am

    Shiny! My wife and I had already started watching it (again!) before you decided to do this. We’ve just finished The Train job episode, so we’ll catch up with you Thursday!

    If I’m over my CHUCK over dose by then, that is…

  19. Jen on January 7th, 2010 7:39 pm

    Since I haven’t watched the whole series and I already own it, I’ll watch along with you Kath! :

  20. Connie on January 9th, 2010 12:15 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Firefly and Serenity! Watched it when it was on originally, was heartbroken when it got cancelled, and bought my copies of the show and the movie as soon as I found them. They are personal favorites and since my family is big into movies that is saying something!

  21. Jessica S on January 10th, 2010 12:26 pm

    I’m in! Firefly is in my top 10 favorite shows of all time. A near perfect season of television-just imagine what Joss & Co. could’ve done with all that potential in later seasons!
