You know that feeling when you've been pretty invested in a show and then all of the sudden


it's over.


And you're left with that emptiness of not having anything to do but you're not really ready to move on yet.

Star Treks TNG and DS9 left a very tangible sense of "oof"

Breaking Bad

All damaged me

Yeah this. Over the last couple of months I binged Firefly, then watched Narcos, now it's like.... what do I do with my life?

This thread should be a support group. Poster finishes a show, tells thread, thread suggest next show that should consume poster's life.

What Netflix thing should I binge next?

If you liked Firefly check out BSG it's like Firefly but depressing and nihilistic

I'll give it a look. Cheers. I'm playing Fallout NV at the moment because I'm still in the 360 dark ages so depressing and nihilistic works for me.

The worst is shows that didn't get their full run. Firefly had so much more to give, Dollhouse was forced to rush itself and you can just tell while watching it if they had had even one more season they could have delivered something so strong. Constantine was just starting to find its feet when it got the chop. At least stuff like BSG, TNG, DS9 and BrBa were able to run long enough to do everything they wanted to

Also, Battlestar Galactica is literally nothing like Firefly, except for the fact that both are named after the central spaceship. BSG is far, far superior in every way.

It's the same feeling as reading a book and getting to the end, I'm used to it.

What bothers me is constant cliffhangers or other loose ends so that there is always a hint at the story going on if someone wants to throw money at it. I don't mind the occasional long running show but I generally prefer shows that decide an end point far in advance and build up to that end properly and actually end there, which is unfortunately very rare. The more common "Milking" a show until people stop caring or until the creators/actors want to quit just ends up creating disappointing conclusions.


I tend to stay away from book series with multiple books for this reason. From past experience, at some point it gets stretched out. Only exceptions are things like Discworld where it's more random stories in the universe rather than a never-ending saga.
O.K.

At least Firefly was cancelled before it disappeared up it's own ass to the sounds of a pointless cover of All Along The Watchtower like BSG did.

Firefly is overall better than BSG in my opinion because BSG became confusing and pretentious and plot holes and lost sight of what initially made the show compelling which was characters fighting for survival against all odds, and went for dramatic melodrama and weird religious messages instead

At its core, Firefly is more enjoyable because it's a bunch of great characters in space.

It was always about the melodrama and religious metaphor though. That stuff was baked into the show from the very beginning, the later seasons had to move away from the bleakness of war aspect towards the more esoteric because that was the logical direction to go.
Once Caprica Six and Boomer had started sowing discontent amongst the Cylons and there began to be co-operation between human and Cylon they couldn't have kept on doing what they had been doing - they had to move away from the 'survival at all costs' angle and towards the analysis of humanity, faith and science that dominate the later seasons to avoid both repeating themselves and setting back their own narrative development. Like it or not, that's always where the show was going to end up - if you couldn't see that from the beginning, that's your fault.

Don't give me that. The 6 and Boomer thing got more air time because the characters were popular/hot. The show was barely planned to the end of season 1 to begin with, and there was no massive overreaching plot/message, which you'd know if you'd read interviews with the producers.

The fact that it wasn't planned has nothing to do with the fact that it was always going to end up there. It doesn't matter that they went into season 1 without knowing where they were going to end up, because they had still built everything the show would become into it from the beginning. It's not like they just threw twists and shit into it to mix it up, everything that happens is an extension of the themes that were in the show since the miniseries. It was a natural evolution of everything the show was. You don't need to have planned everything out to follow through on your intentions.

The intended focus of the series was the moral choices faced by the survivors(the military/civil power struggles, the inmates on the prison ship, the black market and so forth).

The twists and turns are there to provide new situations in which those moral decisions are forced to be examined from a different perspective(Cylon civil war etc).

It starts going downhill in season 3, with the boxing episode and the love triangle, drops off the cliff when they 'kill' Starbuck for no reason, and then bring her back with a resounding "God did it, incidentally that's why everything else".
