Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

The point is, execution is everything. FF = failed execution, Firefly = brilliant execution.

It makes me sad when great ideas are poorly executed...FF had potential...but never found it.

I ain't so sure bout that.

FF was epic failure from the point they decided to make the book into a tv-show. They just chopped out too many really good ideas from the book.


and mixing cowboys and spaceships sounds brilliant to me big_smile

what doesn't kill you - hurts even more...

Re: It is rumoured that FlashForward could come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK - stop trolling everyone. And please stop bringing up FF everytime it's about a cancelled show!

Oh and in O-mans list I also would exclude BB from the rubbish shows wink
BB is one of the fines written TV shows I've ever seen.

Well, in TV Land is not the idea that counts.

Re: It is rumoured that FlashForward could come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yep, it's the execution that matters.
I'd rather see the whole thing recast and re-envisioned by a seasoned creative team that can deal with complexity of both characters and show design. Remove the romantic crap that seemed to govern everyone's timelines and engage us with something more intriguing...
...it was seriously a sci-fi show that got lost in romantic drama....every doctor, every FBI agent...all romantic fails. Every interesting character (Dyson Frost) got killed prematurely...at the expense of the plot, and not to the aid of it. Anyone related to useful information was conveniently ignored so that we could follow stupid romance issues....

I have to agree with Rob, FF has a great concept and it did have a few good moments (eg:when the FBI guy committed suicide and we realized that the Flashes weren't guaranteed) but overall it was pretty boring and I never really grew to care about any of the characters

I doubt very much if it did come back if I would sit through another 24 episodes of it.

I don't see how they would be able to try and attract new viewers though. Firstly its Sci Fi so you only have so much of the viewing population that will give it a chance anyway, a number of those stopped watching half way through the first series (as the ratings did take a hit from what I understand) the characters and their relationships are established so coming into it new in series 2 would be confusing.
And as someone has already said, a lot of the actors have moved on by now . I don't think it will happen.
