jgreenberg, I wouldn't put a red circle over any of them. And yes, I am speaking strictly about the characters portrayed as I do not know the people.
Kaylee > Athena > Inara > Six
On second thought, I might red circle Six - she was a bit of a psych case...

Blue, I'm a Kaylee fan too. And Firefly is infinitely better than that fanboyerific BSG. But if you all are Inara fans, she is topless in Homefront. Just saying.


But again, I would rather have Kaylee.

You say "fanboy" like it's a bad thing, and that's fine. The problem is that you really need to apply that term to fans of both series. And I'll admit to being a fanboy of both as they both have a large and dedicated following. You can guess by my custom wallet (and previous posts) which one I prefer though:

Yes, I am a major geek, but then again, the first step is to admit that there's a problem.

By the way, with all the comparison of the women in BSG & FF, I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Summer Glau...

Really Jay? You can say that, but she's all grown up now. I think you, in particular, might appreciate this:

Permission to come aboard?

I think he was probably just referring to her time on Firefly, if that's the case then I would agree with Jay.

But yes, in her other roles :drool:

I got that.

I'm just blurring the lines between the characters & the actors. I agree that frakking a Cylon is a scary thought. And that's why I would rather picture a Jeff sandwich with Grace Park & Tricia Helfer bread.

On the FF menu, it would have to be Morena Baccarin & Summer Glau.

But of course all of that is just fantasy, as I don't expect them to come knocking on my door any time soon. So as long as we're talking fantasy, it's time to switch back to the characters and for me... Inara out hands down out of all the BSG & FF gals. As Jayne said when Inara was with the female Councillor: "I'll be in my bunk."

But I still thing that BSG is the better series! :p

BSG? Loved it until the fourth season where they painted themselves into a corner and couldn't figure a way out besides the lame ending.

Firefly? Network execs are the biggest MORONS on planet Earth for canceling it. But that's just it. They live on Earth and just don't understand the 'verse.

Fanboy denotes someone that has to have something because of a show, besides maybe DVDs or movie/promotional poster of the show. So if you have to have memorabilia or guns because a show has it denotes being a fanboy.

I am not a Firefly fanboy because I don't have any of that. I love the show for its well thought out creativity and uniqueness. I would never own a Firefly ship model, or *COUGH* original art piece mixing renaissance painting with sci-fi characters *AHEM*.

But hey, to each their own. If that is what float your boat, all the better for you.


I still might make fun of you for it though ;)


It could be worse. You could be a snake fanboy.

I would like to own a Firefly.

I don't mean a model of a firefly, I mean the actual ship.
You may call me a fanboy because of it but I wouldn't care.

For that matter, I wouldn't mind the actual Galactica either :laugh:

Ok, now you're just making stuff up. I only have heard (and used) fanboi or fanboy in a somewhat derogatory term. I did that not so much because of the behavior exhibited, but because of the causes they picked to be fans of. Can anyone say Twilight?

But because I didn't really know the etymology of the words(s), I wanted to check before saying pants on fire. Typically, fanboi/fanboy is defined as a person who is strongly devoted to, possibly bordering on obsessed with a show/movie/band/etc. Nowhere can it be found that owning memorabilia is a parameter of being a fanboy. Take your pick of definitions:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanboi#Fanboy" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fanboi" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/fanboi" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/fanboy#English" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And of course, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fanboy" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For the record, I am proud to be a fanboy of Firefly & BSG. Throw Star Trek in there too. Star Wars to a certain extent as well. The genre is a great escape for me from the pressures of the business world. And yes, I like memorabilia & props to help create a certain... ambiance in the home theater.

And guns too. Lot's of guns.

Oh wait, does that make me a firearm fanboy/fanboi? :p

Well then by that definition I'm not a fan boy either, because I am not obsessed with any show or movie. I enjoy quite a few, but obsession? no.

Still symptoms of obsession and thus fanboyism still fit with my definition.:p


And you can't be a fanboy of firearms as they are not a show, or book, or movie. They are not contrived, or made up.

Au contraire mon frère:

Noun

fanboy (plural fanboys)

(fandom slang) Someone (normally male) who is utterly devoted to a single subject or hobby, often to the point where it is considered an obsession.
