JMS has also setup a site called Babylon 5 Scripts and has some photo's and notes there from the production of the first Lost Tales episode.

I don't think you'll ever see a second season of Firefly, but I bet we get another movie.

I'll be buying the B5 DVD, I didn't find firefly series to my liking.
I didn't get the chance to watch much so I don't know the story.

Bab5 on the other hand, four years of excellent ever improving show.

The big problem Firefly had was that Fox meddled with the production and then played the TV episodes out of order, changed the night it was on, etc. They didn't even play the pilot of the show until just before they took it off the air. It was disgraceful.

The final episodes were never even shown on Fox and didn't premier until the Sci-Fi channel.

I didn't pick up on it until I saw Serenity. Then I went back and watched the series. There was a good foundation being laid down that would have blossomed into a great sci-fi show had it been given a decent change.

yep..firefly woulda been great...what there was of it was/is great...

IMO tv network exec's have no clue whats good and what isnt..or that they are the cause somtimes...and they sure dont listen to the fans either....if us firefly fans hadnt bitched so much serenity would have never been made(and i guess joss whedon helped too :) )
ohwell..lets get rid of these "stupid-silly shows" and run another season of "wife-swap" :poop: cause thats what people want to see :chair: :cussing1:

Ive heard a lot about it, but I cant comment as ive never seen it. Is it still worth watching even though it only ran 1 season?

Yes, there's the TV season on DVD, and the movie Serenity picks up after the show ends.

There should be another movie in a year or two.
