    The ‘Jaynestown‘ Episode review has been posted to the Firefly Episodes section

    Welp! Considering the hype for Ben Edlund at the beginning of the review, this was an uninspiring episode. The direction was pretty good and the acting fair, but the story was predictable and the dialogue was poor. It was a tight episode with all the formulea bits in the correct places, but it was not innovative and definately mainstream. This wasn’t Ben Edlund’s best work – in fact, as a big fan, I felt that he’d sold out!

    Firefly is suffering at the moment. At the time of writing the internet community is convinced that the series will be cut any day now. The ratings are on a downward spiral and many people (except the most ardent diehards) think that the show is poor. The Firefly sci fi saga should be much better considering the talented people involved in it. I sincerely hope it improves soon. At the moment, I’m embarrassed to call it cult TV sci fi and to have dedicated so much time to preparing a Guide.

    Awww. It would be nice if the series improves. I have been a busy person lately and couldn’t watch this episode so I can’t really offer an opinion on it.

    Hopefully it’s just a bad time of year with vacations, games, schools and things will start to look up, making it all worth the effort.

    Worst. (Rated). Episode. Ever.

    One would have thought (hoped) that the week off and high antipation might have done the show *some* good. Edlund must be real ticked off.

    Looks like Buffy: Season 8 is a sure certainty then

    Is a recent Wheddon interview, hopefully things aren’t looking as black as I’d first thought.
