Back in 2002, when Joss Whedon's Firefly was on, I was watching other shows and didn't want to commit to yet another. I heard it was good, but I always figured I'd watch it some day in the future.
That day came when my Kindle Fire, loaded with a month of Amazon Prime, arrived. With a free month of downloads I started watching Doctor Who, at the suggestion of a teacher at school, but after a few episodes just couldn't get into it. I tried Firefly, and was hooked in less than the first episode.
I was one of the relatively few who was hooked, though. Its broadcast life was short, airing only 11 of the 14 episodes that were shot. Amazon Prime has all 14 available for streaming, and last night I watched the last one.
I saw the movie, Serenity, when it came out, but since I didn't know the back story I'm sure I missed a lot of it. Tonight I'll stream Serenity.
Update: Dang it! Serenity isn't on Amazon Prime, so I have to pay for it! I'll watch something else tonight (my one month of Prime that came with the Kindle runs out in less than 2 weeks) and watch Serenity after my freebies run out.
