If SyFy is to reboot one TV series for the 2011 season, should it be Firefly or Farscape?

You vote. I know the SyFy executives follow this site, maybe they'll take some notice of the result!

Farscape was by far the better series.

This is a no-brainer, bring back Farscape!!!!

Farscape was a great show, cool characters, interesting story - but it was a little too campy and cartoonish for my tastes. I thought Firefly was much better than Farscape.

Firefly had incredible characters, a great set, all sorts of mystery and back-story, was less campy and I really just liked it more.  That said, I don't think it has a chance of coming back, it seems like all the actors have moved on to other things. The likelyhood of getting the original cast back together - especially with Joss Whedon saying time and again that it's not coming back as a TV show - is about nil IMO.  But if it does come back I will be ecstatic :)

I would say that Firefly was the better series.

Farscape was okay, but it never really had a clear plot-arc, apart from get John home, and every time I tuned in, it was almost like looking at a different series.

Firefly was short enough that it never got into this problem, of plot-creep.

For me, Farscape was the better series because it was cartoonish.

I got the feeling that Firefly took itself far too seriously, and most the plot-lines were just reworking the US civil war and Westerns into a space/scifi genre - the blend of the two really started to jar by the end.

Farscape was pure science fiction with no pretensions to anything else, and worked a hell of a lot better for it.

Firefly does seem to have more rabid fans, though, in the browncoats.

"Just reworking the US civil war and westerns into a space sci-fi genre"? Of *course* it was, it was a space western about a civil war!  I thought that was part of what made it great, the fact that you have high-tech space travel and land on planets where people use horses as thair main mode of transportation was neat, and believable - you have the space frontiersmen than won't necessarily have the best equipment on the planets they're colonizing.

Though... I really don't think the main plot line had much to do with the actual US civil war - I mean, there wasn't any slavery, and I don't remember either side investing money into turning hot chicks into superweapons ;)

FIREFLY!!!!
Oh sorry I was yelling but I get excited at the thought of more Firefly! It died too young. I pray to all the gods of science fiction that it is brought back!

Hello everyone

Farscape would be the better choice only not a re-boot, just a continuation.

Hi Folks,
           I think Firefly deserves another chance in the spotlight, even if all of the original cast are not available. Crew members change. A good series cut short, it had a lot more to say. But, I agree that it should continue where it left off, not just begin again. The new script writers should be good enough to remember what has gone before and use it to the advantage of the plot.

Regards all,

Graleth

Farscape and then Firefly. That way I can get my cake and eat it too.
