The first time I ever saw an episode of Firefly, it was the premiere. Well, I say premiere, but what was actually airing was the second episode, not the pilot which actually set the groundwork of exposition for the universe and characters.

By then the show had long been cancelled. A couple years ago I had the bittersweet experience of creating yet another fan to be saddened by the tragic meta-story of the series, my own mother. “Wait,” she asked me after the first episode, “When did this get cancelled?”
