My friend is urging me to get into Firefly and Battlestar Galactica, citing these to be amongst the best two sci-fi shows he has ever seen (particularly Galactica). The last time I was talked into a sci-fi series (Babylon Five), I was immediately won over. My friend says Firefly is an easy watch at only 13 episodes. He said that I should then watch the film Serenity thereafter as it ties up all the loose ends. He then suggested the new Battlestar Galactica which I think is in its second season on DVD. I am unsure how many episodes are in each season -- and I heard something about a miniseries -- so I am not that sure of the best way to watch this. I have seen pictures of the blonde from that show and I must say, she's about as hot as they get! I suppose I am just looking for your opinions on both shows and the best way to get into them. To me, it seems like a no-brainer as Firefly should take me less than 2 weeks to watchg, then on to Serenity and then over to Galactica.
