ohhh just remembered another one!
This is one that's always intrigued me. I've almost bought the series on DVD on a whim but aside from all the hype around it, I don't know much about it.
It is one of my favorite tv shows ever. It will not disappoint, except when it ends way too soon.
I saw the movie Serenity first, then bought the series on DVD without seeing any of the episodes and it is excellent.
I'm almost done with Battlestar Gallactica, and it has been really good too. I don't watch much TV besides hockey really.
I may Netflix this sometime then. My wife told me I wouldn't like it because it can be borderline cheesy at times, but I'm a big Nathan Fillion (sp?) fan, and seeing as he is the main hombre in "Firefly," I ought to give it a shot.
Speaking of Nathan Fillion, I don't know if you all have checked it out yet or not, but he and Neil Patrick Harris and Josh Whedon (who created "Firefly") did an online musical a few years back. I believe its on Netflix now, it was on Hulu at one point. It's called "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog." It's great if you like that sort of thing. Both of those guys are hilarious in it. It's worth watching the 30 minutes or however long it is (was originally in 3 parts).
I agree with you Curt....Arrested Development is quite possibly my favorite TV comedy of all time. The cast was perfect, the 'in-jokes,'...it's one of those shows that you would have loved for it to go on forever, but at the same time, the 3 seasons they did were near perfect. It's kind of how I feel about "Freaks and Geeks," too. Sure, the show looks much better now that most of the (at the time) unknown cast went onto big time stardom, but the one season was almost so perfect, if they had made a second season that was subpar, it would have ruined the whole mystique of the show.
Other shows that I've seen episodes here and there but would like to watch in full:
