Just started watching Firefly. I can see why it was cancelled, the budget spent on every episode must have ben enormous.
Yep.  Just look at all the top tier actors, the elaborate sets, and the realistic special effects.  Undeniably expensive...

It was cancelled due to a lot of little things that added up. Writing errors, budget issues (this was not a big problem though) and time slotting competition all matched the stars up to result in cancelling the show. Make sure you watch Serenity after you complete the series.

Well, it just depends. Is the superhero's name literally Black Panther? That would be a really bad thing to do. If the movie is about a villain named Black Panther then that would probably be better.

Either way it is a strange movie title that has connotations outside of comic books. I would never name a comic book movie Ku Klux.

The Black Panther's name predates the October 1966 founding of the Black Panther Party.

Yes, and the word "gay" simply means to be happy. Sure have been a lot of people declaring themselves to be happy lately. I heard even the CEO of Apple is happy.

It's a proper noun, though. He's been in comics for fifty-odd years and is established in the marvel canon as 'Black Panther'

I'd honestly never heard of him before now, but I still say its a strange hero to make a movie about.

All right, that's enough of that.  Behold, not one, but two deluges of superhero crap:

http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2014/10/marvel_vs_dc_comics_which_movi.html

Yes. I can't express my excitement with these announcements, particularly the Inhumans. Black Bolt omg


I had no interest in Doctor Strange until Benedict Cumberbatch was announced as the titular character.

Now I must see it.

Really? I'm the other way around. I love Benedict Cumberbatch a lot, but I don't like the casting.

He's awesome though, T'Challa and Wakanda are fun to say

Given the success of GotG, I think it's safe to say that there is officially no source material in the world that Marvel can't potentially turn into a hit.  And it's great that a black guy and a lady are going to be able to helm their own movies.  Diversity for all!

Just watched the four episodes of The Flash. I haven't watched Arrow, and nor do I care to, but it doesn't look like it's necessary anyway.

Firefly. I have the series on DVD. It's entertaining but I don't think it deserves the large cult following that it has.

I like Firefly a lot, but I hate everyone who wears a Jayne hat.

I never quite understood the fascination with the hat.

People are only obsessed with Firefly because of its "tragic" cancelation. The show was too expensive, broadcast out of order, and is clearly a loose rip off of Cowboy Bebop.

The setting maybe. The things that make Bebop great are not present in Firefly. The things that make Firefly great are not ripped from Bebop.

What exactly makes Firefly great?

Why do you own the DVD set if you don't think it's great? Do you just like wasting money?
