That looks just like you Cristobal. I assume your name is Chris Tobal and you're a huge fan of the Tobal fighting games from back in the day and that that is a lost character design.

Roots: The Next Generation? Shit, you might as well have said Alex Haley's Queen. That's only pushing 22 years old.

Uh, guys, I started this thread so that the "Movies" thread wouldn't get clogged with discussion about shows better than Firefly.  Let's get those lists/debates going here.

a quick clarification:  are these the only 12 shows better than Firefly in your humble opinion, or just a random selection from a larger pool?

Yeah, I am struggling to think of a character in Hill Street Blues that was more badass than The Operative.

Short-lived, cancelled genre shows tend to get overrated because:

 

  • They weren't around long enough to experience the usual downturn in quality
  • They typically have small but rabid fanbases who won't shut up about them

 

I liked Firefly but it wasn't a life-changing show that left a hole in my life when it was cancelled.

Almost Human. My fondness for unapologetic Blade Runner rip-off shows has never quite faded.

 

Firefly was good, but all this "one of the best TV shows ever!" stuff seems a bit exaggerated.

On a related note, the cast and crew of The 4400 are campaigning to have it brought back.

 

I enjoyed that show more than Firefly.

Luther and Farscape are both better than Firefly.
