Thoroughly impressed. The only disappointment is that... well, it's not 
the series. I'm very happy to have Firefly/Serenity living on in some 
form... but there'll never be the room for the sort of depth you'd have 
in seven seasons or so of a series. If you've got an hour to work with 
these characters every week, you can do quite a bit more than if you've 
got a grand total of maybe 6 hours spread over three movies.
