So shortly after writing the last post I watched the rest of the series and the movie Serenity. The show had potential, the movie explored some interesting things, although Mal’s dialog/delivery just got worse. They more or less guaranteed they couldn’t bring the show back even if the movie had been a major hit by killing one, maybe two, critical characters. I think they could have gotten past the death of the Shepard but killing Wash pretty much killed the show.
