if you havn't seen it, you're missing out big time! i recommend watching the series before you watch the movie serenity. it gives you a better insight into the characters, especially shepard book!
gotta say my favourite character is jayne! absolutely brilliant with his tactless remarks and rugged violence! and of course mal, what a sweetie but pretends to be tough!
all in all a fantastic show with the right mix of everything! shame it was cancelled but serenity was amazing!!!!
