I have to admit I loved watching all three of these shows. I can't help it supernatural shows are some of my favorite and these were definitely good in their time(though some faltered at the end).
Though Season 1 of Buffy will always be a cut above the rest for me (it was just so... unlike anything I had seen on tv before!), I think my favorite, storyline-wise, was Season 3.

I liked Season 2 because Angel turning evil was a nice twist and the battle in the finale was intense.
I was at WalMart the other day and they had Angel Season 3 for $18 so I picked it up. They also had Buffy seasons 4-7 for $28 each, but I didn't buy those because I'm trying to watch my pennies. I'm kicking my *** about it though.
[quote=goldenwarrior63;18212] I liked Season 2 because Angel turning evil was a nice twist and the battle in the finale was intense.[/quote] I agree, because Angel was my favorite character and for him to become a villain like that was phenomenal for me. plus with the season ending the way it did, goodness, I almost cried
I own all the Buffy's and Angel's on DVD. Kathleen...both series are also released in "the complete..." box sets! You should check that out sometime when you aren't planning a wedding lol
You think I could find a good deal on ebay? I've been just waiting for Walmart to put them in the discount rack. LOL I'm so freakin' cheap. I'm half way through season 3 of Angel and I'm falling in love all over again. Although I wish I could have found season 1! I'm still mad that they killed Doyle. Season 3 was really the best one, I think. When they worked for W&H, everything changed.
my favorite Angel is Season 4....season 3 was actually my least fave. Darla and Conner got WAAAAY too annoying for me.
oh and you should totally scout out the seasons and series on ebay. best buy also SOMETIMES has sales on all 20th Century Fox shows....so Buffy and Angel can SOMETIMES be found for like 15 or 20 bucks a pop.
RSV - Hulu has every episode of Firefly in 420p in case you were looking for a place to watch them: [URL="http://www.hulu.com/videos/search?query=firefly"]Hulu - Firefly. [/URL]
I own Firefly on DVD, but thanks for the thought/post regardless! Hulu is seriously the shit. All I need is a DVI -> HDMI cable and I'll be golden =) Still gotta go pick one of those up...been meaning to

The technology has really matured (especially with Hulu) over the last few years and it is a great investment to get the required hookups so you can stream shows onto your "big screen."
I watched Serenity last night and wasn't impressed. :( Maybe it was because I had not seen Firefly? I just didn't feel the characters. It seemed like a watered down Battlestar Galactica with the lead a much cheaper, less talented Harrison Ford from Star Wars. I'd give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

[QUOTE=maybeshesright;31186]haha, yeah... serenity is basically the series finale. i can see how that'd be less than entertaining without having seen the show first.[/QUOTE] I disagree, Serenity was cleverly written so that if you hadn't seen a single episode of the show...you'd be able to follow it. In Firefly we saw how Simon and River get on the ship....but in Serenity we see how Simon helped River escape from the Alliance. No repetition, but keeps newbies invested. Honestly...everyone RAVES about BSG, but I tried watching a season and a half of it and thought it totally sucked. It was so boring, the characters were far from interesting....yeah Starbuck rocked, but how long can a series use 1 character as a crutch? meh. One thing that did get a little lost in translation from tv-->big screen was a lot of the character relationships. Whedon even said that it was hard because there are so many characters and you're trying to tell the story in between. Therefore I think a lot of the Mal/Inara stuff was cut out, and we didn't really see much more of the Mal/Jayne conflict too. So I can see how you'd think the characters were a little watered down....it wasn't like that in the series, I think time constraints affected this aspect. Joss is usually SO INTO character development in all of his shows. I think Serenity is a WAY better movie, after having seen the series, sure, but I brought a ton of friends to Serenity in the theater, people who had never seen a lick of Firefly, and every single person loved it. Everyone's entitled to his/her own opinion, but not seeing the series isn't a good scapegoat only because so much was done to prevent that in its development. I WANT TO WATCH IT AGAINNNNNNN =) It's a shame the movie didn't do slightly better.....Universal was totally ready to green-light a trilogy had it done a little better. It ended up recovering its budget (somewhat between 35-40 million) plus more with the DVDs (original DVD + Collector's 2-disc Edition), but Universal is still on the fence about doing more =(
I'm not saying it sucked, I just felt it wasn't very good. I wouldn't watch it again, but I am glad I was able to cross it off my big list of movies not seen. [B] On a side note:[/B] How did psychic girl open the blast door at the end from the outside when it was locked from the inside? Just one of many little things that made me shake my head... I also am not a fan of Buffy-esque martial arts. Could it look any more fake?! Give me a Battlestar Galactica movie any day (I bet Whedon would concur!) ...and don't say it is just me that didn't like it. Not enough people saw it in the first place to even offer a valid sample of opinions. :D

I have to rewatchhhhh i can't wait
Hahaha, I'm just trying to whip you Whedonites into a frenzy. Saturdays are always slow. ;)
I didn't offer my opinion because 1) RSV said it better than I ever could have and 2) I know when you are stirring the pot. I have Serenity on DVD and I just may pop it in. BTW, I'm not even addressing the fake Buffy martial arts comments or I will have to get nasty.
