Fewer and fewer episodes of Firefly remain, yet we're still going to call this a good day. Firefly won't manage to double-cross us and steal our clothes (we hope.) We talk about Episode 11 "Trash" this week and there's plenty to talk about if you're into mild nudity and killing people with your brain. We also ask the gripping question, "what would be your best naked day?" Tune in every week for the conclusion of Firefly and the series to follow every week on the Season 1 Podcast! We are on Stitcher, iTunes, Pocket Casts, and Google Play. If there’s a podcast app you want us on, let us know!

Torture, war, and Rainbow Brite. What do these things have in common? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Yet we manage to wrap them all into one episode of the Season 1 Podcast. We also sprinkle in a little chick-kissin' and some Lost references as well. We are on Stitcher, iTunes, Pocket Casts, and Google Play. If there’s a podcast app you want us on, let us know!

Nine episodes in and we see the end in sight for Firefly. We spend this week talking about a good old fashioned Ocean's 11 story where you gotta grab the booty and not get caught by the Marshalls. We talk through the heist episode, touch base with friend of the podcast Zac Efron once more and we finish with everybody's favorite segment "Question" - Now with 100% more Dungeons and Dragons. We also ponder who is the hottest Disney Princess if the rest of the episode didn't creep you out yet. Make sure you nominate our next show by heading over to season1pod.com/vote!

Chris and Chris also bring back the popular "Questions" segment (now with points!) so check it out. Now is your chance to decide the direction of the show.

Keeping it shiny, we move onto Episode 7 of Firefly where Adam Baldwin can really stretch his comedic acting chops by grunting even more loudly! It's like his eyes follow me. We talk about one of the best episodes of Firefly this week - Jaynestown. We discuss statues, the Bible, musical episodes of our favorite TV shows and we even spend a little time trying to talk one of our Chris's into singing "The Man They Called Jayne." We also have cameo appearances by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Scrubs! We also debut our new and creatively named segment called "Questions." This was a fun one to watch and a fun one to record. Hope you enjoy it! We're running out of episodes to review - so make sure you nominate a show for us to do next by heading over to season1pod.com/vote.

Our sixth episode comes with one free goodnight kiss - or at least a smack to the back of the head. We talk this week about Firefly's sixth episode and it's all about a double-cross! If you like hot red heads then this one is right up your alley. Chris and Chris talk about how Saffron is able to cross up Mal, quote the Bible and try to seduce Inara all while trying to be traded for Vera (the gun.)

One of our favorites and we hope it's one of yours.

Now, it's time for you to vote on whether we keep reviewing Firefly or move onto another show! You can nominate a new show here and you can vote on what to do with Firefly on our Twitter feed.

Thanks for joining us for Episode 2 of the podcast and Episode 2 of Firefly. One of the goals with this podcast is to better understand why a show is cancelled after one season and you can start to tell right off the bat with this second episode that there's trouble a-brewin. This was the FIRST episode that Fox aired and they reportedly gave Joss Whedon only three days to write it after they disapproved of Episode 1. The Chris's discuss this week about the thin plot, how Firefly does in the Bechdel test, and how much Jayne steals every scene. Follow this episode, you're going to get a chance to play studio executive and either cancel our reviews of Firefly, or continue it on for two more episodes. Follow @season1pod on Twitter for 48 hours after this episode to vote! Episode Notes:
  • 00:00:30 - The second pilot, that viewed first. How do you write a story in three days?
  • 00:02:30 - The writing is on the wall, Fox isn't fond of Firefly.
  • 00:04:00 - Unification Day! An aspicious day.
  • 00:08:00 - Best theme song of all time?
  • 00:10:40 - Firefly and the Bechdel test
  • 00:19:00 - Niska vs. Rocky and Bullwinkle
  • 00;21:00 - The Train Job - Doin' the crime.
  • 00:26:00 - The Jayne chain of command
  • 00:27:00 - Second reference of Disney Princesses in two episodes. (What is wrong with me?)
  • 00:33:00 - How this episode failed as a pilot, but succeeded as a second episode
That's our second show! Don’t forget to leave us a good review on iTunes if you have a moment and tell your friends! Now the podcast is in your hands.

Welcome to our inaugural episode! We'll be focusing first on the Joss Whedon series, Firefly. This series aired only 11 episodes and this episode actually aired last. However, if you check out this series on Netflix, it was originally intended to be the pilot, so we'll review it first. Firefly premiered on Fox in September, 2002 and stands as a testament to a wonderful missed opportunity. Chris and Chris look at this pilot episode called "Serenity." Every two episodes, you're going to get a chance to cancel a series, or keep going. Check out our twitter feed for more details. Episode Notes:

  • 00:14:30 - The influences of Firefly
  • 00:19:00 - The shaving habits of Captain Mal
