Tuesday 4 October 2005, by Bernie Elliott :I’ve owned and operated a large video store in a midwestern college town for over 20 years, so I’ve seen more than my share of movies, marketing campaigns, and reviews, both good and bad. I had no idea who Devin Faraci was until I saw his review on Whedon.info. but he is certainly not the first reviewer I’ve read who wrote from the viewpoint of his own ego. The sheer smugness of that "I was right" attitude is what rankles...a reviewer should stick to the content/quality of the film, but Mr. Faraci seems more interested in congratulating himself (and over what he infers as the "death" of a project, no less). He does, in his reply to Joss’ rebuttal, point out that his review is an "opinon piece." Well, we all know that common saying about opinions. And yes, I saw the movie this weekend...and about that I’ll say to Joss, cast and crew, thanks, and keep flyin’, Joss.

“I love Lost and watch it religiously, but I wouldn’t consider myself a Lostie. I don’t like to categorize myself by my musical tastes or my reading material or the sneakers I wear. The desire to be included in a group, the desire to become part of a big pop cultural movement like that - I don’t get it.”
No, he really DOESN’T get it. If everyone who watched Lost was referred to by a particular name, he’d be painted by that broad brush-like it or not. Furthermore, there is far more to the fans of Firefly and/or Serenity than their appreciation of said show(s). I doubt that anyone categorizes themselves solely as a fan. We are mothers, fathers, children, students, teachers, doctors, nurses, cops, writers, artists, lawyers, lovers, fighters, but above all, human. And to say that we “desire to become part of a big pop cultural movement like” Firefly or Serenity shows just how little this person has been paying attention. If there was such a huge movement, there would be no need for anyone to make any effort at all to see that such quality programming isn’t banished forever to make room for the latest reality programming stunt extraordinaire. We could sit back and wait, safe in the knowledge that our entertainment is just around the corner, with the security known by every fan of Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan, Tom Cruise, and Paris Hilton. But some of us don’t choose to play such dicey games of chance with our entertainment...
