    Nothing wrong with that preference. For one, it's an acquired taste -- perhaps congenitally? -- and if you talk to someone like me, you will be told that only two of the five series are enjoyable to watch.

    But Wash? I mean, come on. Of all the characters to lose, why him?
    It doesn't make a lot of sense. As large as its cast was, Firefly was rhythmic and balanced on screen. Who else would interrupt to ask "Can we have a vote on the whole 'killing people' thing"? No one but Wash.

    Totally agree. I can understand possible reasons for killing off Wash, but I'd much rather have seen Zoe killed off, personally. She was always far and away the most boring of the characters.

    And yeah, the explanation for Reavers was pretty insipid. Pin it all on the alliance. I liked the idea that they all saw the nothingness on the edge of the galaxy and went mad. I liked the idea that they had nothing to do with the alliance. They reminded me a bit of a grimmer version of the Ousters from Hyperion.

    hm i def. disagree on mal and zoe.
    heres what i think:
    mal-INTP
    Zoe-ISTJ
    Inara-ENFJ (agreed)
    wash-ESFJ
    Kaylee-ISFP (maybe ESFP)
    Simon-INTJ
    Jayne-ESTP

    i'm not sure about shepherd book or River.

    <3 Firefly. But I love all Whedon shows (Buffy seasons 5-7 don't exist).

    Mal: No way is Mal a J- definitely seems like an ISTP to me- but he might be a disappointed F? His past fogs this up a bit.
    Wash: E.... hmm, now that I think about it, I can see ESFJ...

    (Agreed with scantilyclad)
    Zoe: ISTJ
    Inara: ENFJ
    Kaylee: xSFP
    Simon: INTJ
    Jayne: ESTP

    Book: iNfJ- a repentant/religious INTJ? Not really sure on this one
    River: (crazy, ass-kicking psychic)

    In some ways, Serenity was a cop out. The whole Paxil planet thing seemed too simplistic for the subtle universe in Firefly, but I enjoyed the ride. (But Wash didn't have to die.)

    Hmm...that would suggest N dominance.

    And I can't think of Inara being anything but an ISFP, quite honestly.

    scantilyclad, I disagree, mal and Inara have such a sweet relationship, they have to be dual types. Plus I don't see the kind of passiveness that is characteristic in INTp, he makes his opinion heard and with vigor. Whatsmore his stance and costume are so ISTj (ie, military uniform and constaint vigulance). However I think Simon might be an INTj.

    zoe is defo. an SJ (sir, yes sir), but perhaps she is an ISFj???

    wash is the epitome of ENTj.

    Refined List...
    Mal: ISTj
    Inara: ENFj
    Kaylee: ESFj
    Simon: INTj
    Jayne: ISTp
    Zoe: ISFj
    Wash: ENTj
    Book: not sure, maybe INFj
    River: mental instability makes this hard, but her relationship with her brother makes me think ESFj

    and colors is so right, wash really didn't have to die... right en media rez de his leaf on the wind cuteness too!

    hmm, I think S is more her kind of psychic. She doesn't see things in the supernatural way, there are even quotes where they discribe her as being able to sense everything around her. this to me suggests S dominance.

    Concerning Inara, she always seemed to be unusually focused. Not on something right in front of her but on some distant goal. Also she is extreemly intuitive about people--importaint for her work--she can usually size a man up just from a short interview. That makes me think Nj, and F seems obvious. The I/E debate was waged in my head but I went with E; Inara has a funny kind of playfullness with others and isn't uncomforable, even in crouds.
