    One must never recommend Firefly without warning about the order in which the episodes should be watched, because that's not the order in which the idiots at Fox first aired them.

    It's interesting to see Firefly and Castle being talked about in the same thread. FYI, Gina Torres (Zoe from Firefly) guest stars on the next ep of Castle. Hoping to see some winks to Nathan and Gina's old gig. :up:

    When the Science Channel does a Firefly marathon, they usually show the eps in production order, not original broadcast order. :up:

    Firefly is available on Netflix, both DVD and streaming.

    Good point. I guess I always thought they were in Netflix in the correct order now. I have seen them all so I just skip around to my favorites. Wait, they are all my favorites. I just skip around to my most favorites.

    You're joking right? It's hard to see people discuss Castle (except for specific episode) and not bring up Firefly.

    Just FYI, a lot of TV shows pull out the 'one of the main characters is in danger' card eventually, so in the later seasons you will see this motif show up on Castle.

    In addition to Castle (which I heartily also vote for)
    I'll recommend Leverage, a lot of seasons, a light touch, and a very stable cast that makes it easy to get to love them all.

    There are a couple of shows on the Smithsonan channel, Aerial America, Mighty Ships and Mighty Planes that are interesting.

    I'd say both, though I "gave up on" Bones years ago.. it's one of the ones I intend to catch up on some eon.

    20 minutes a day? Wow, even though there have been times when I've watched a feature length movie in 2 parts (not often), I don't *that* regularly watch a single episode of a show in multiple parts. The closest is when I'm walking on the treadmill, but even then I usually do something like a few sitcom episodes or 1 "hr" show (~4x minutes) + an ep of Jeopardy… Once in a while I will continue on another ep of an hour long show, but then finish it for sure the next day.

    Ha - so true. :) Just didn't want to go down the path of anything more intense than that.

    I didn't realize Leverage had a ton of seasons - I've only seen a few in the past year.


    :confused:

    Drives me a little crazy, but that pretty much means an episode lasts 2 days given that most are about 40ish minutes without commercials. I would not be able to watch a movie across more than a day - even that is too much for me.

    My intent was "tongue in cheek" since Firefly gets mentioned quite a bit in this forum. :cool:

    Never heard of Firefly. Is that some Mike Rowe insect show?

    5 seasons, and a real ending, so be careful to not watch the finale just to be safe since it does close the loop (it was intended to be either series or season finale)

    Another show to consider would be Rizzoli & Isles. The interaction between the two main characters is great.

    I liked it better when it was Women's Murder Club, although this version has the advantage of having Bruce McGill.

    I watch both Castle and Bones. Prefer Castle now that Emily's character is going a bit too far with the obsessive logic. She has no people skills and its irritating to me and the other characters on the show.

    Spoiler for Season 5 episode 15:
    The teaser for next week's episode last night hinted that next week's episode, Season 5 #15, OAD 18/Feb/13 "Target" may be especially problematic. Someone is after Castle's daughter.

    Yes that looks very intense.

    I'll plus one the recommendation for Psych. It is very light and even when the main cast is in danger, it is still very light. The only episodes that get dark are the Yin and Yang episodes and that is only I think three episodes over the course of seven seasons.
