"And remember, every time you support a canceled Fox show, somewhere a network executive loses his wings."

Here's an amusing article about why you should watch Firefly, which will be running on the Sci-Fi channel on Fridays, starting this week. (Note that Sci-Fi's actually going to be airing the episodes Fox never got around to, so if you liked it when it was originally on but didn't want to shell out the cash for the DVDs, now's your chance to catch what you missed.)

A sample:
Regular television consumption will leave you with the inescapable conclusion that everyone in the world is a moron. People say stupid things, make stupid assumptions, and consistently fail to see obvious solutions because then the show would end 52 minutes too soon. You can actually feel your brain freezing up from vapor lock

The folks in "Firefly," good and bad alike, tend to do the same things you usually scream at television people to do, before you think to scream them, except when they're doing something even better. As it turns out that doesn't always help, but at least then you've got no one to blame but yourself.
