"Oh darn."

Firefly: a couple laugh out loud moments and potential for interesting character interactions as things develop. Not as much as I'd hoped for, not a bust either. The biggest disappointment was the action sequences, particularly the fights. There was no energy to them. I don't need Matrix-y special effects or Jet Li-style fighting (Yuen Woo Ping's way isn't the only way) ... but the bar's been raised and those fights look like they were choreographed and filmed by the crew from Everybody Loves Raymond. I'll keep watching it with the expectation that it'll be lucky to last a full season. I'm guessing a bunch of folks were underwhelmed the by the opening bar brawl and didn't stick around for the whole thing. Just a hunch.
