I'm a huge Firefly fan because of Starwars. Han Solo & Malcolm Reynolds sould easily be friends if they ever crossed path.
Firefly was great because it was truly what I like about Starwars. It's a Space Western.
Starwars (Before those crappy prequels) was the samew reason. Han Solo is nothing but a cowboy. If you have read the Starwars books like the X-Wing Series or New Jedi Order Series you will see how much Starwars is a good series too.
