Last night was the first night of Firefly at the Mission
, and it was, by all accounts, an astounding success. The place was packed, but I had no idea how many people were in the audience until after the show. More than 312 people! Amazing. The place was just jammed with enthusiastic fans -- everyone having a good time, laughing and responding well to all the great, funny, scary, and exhilarating moments in the pilot episode. There was singing during the theme song, and applause at the end. People drank Firefly beer
and hung out after the show to chat with each other.
I should have expected it, but I was still taken by surprise to find that here, in Portland Oregon at the Mission Theater, Firefly is bigger than Buffy.
