    Whatever happened to letting a show DEVELOPE?

    I’m definately with you there. A couple episodes in is not the best point at which to decide the fate of a show.

    It’s criminal how unlucky Tim has been with his shows. I think the fans need to rally big time behind whatever he does next.

    Great episode guys, and an interesting interview 🙂 You’d think Tim would be seriously jaded after so many cancellations, but nothing seems to faze him. Thankfully!

    Oh yes and Out of Gas *is* clearly the best episode of Firefly 😉

    Absolutely. It would be so easy to turn around and start making more generic shows just to keep his stuff on the air, but he consistently pushes the envelope of storytelling with whatever he does.

    The real standout of the whole interview for me was when you got Tim to talk about that episode of Firefly they never got to make. It was at the same time tragic and awesome to hear him quickly summarize what would surely have been an amazing piece of television history. God dammit. Anyway. You guys got yourselves a new listener.

    Cheers,
