Firefly Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

Five hundred years in the future there's a whole new frontier, and the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity is eager to stake a claim on the action. They'll take any job, legal or illegal, to keep fuel in the tanks and food on the table. But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. Now they find themselves on the run, desperate to steer clear of Alliance ships and the flesh-eating Reavers who live on the fringes of space.

I really enjoyed this series. I thought the comedy was appropriate and that the action scenes were necessary and that the characters were excellent. That being said the only good way to describe it is " a space western " and i think if you cant get beyond that you likely wont have much fun.

This show was definitely before its time. Too futuristic, but amazing. Really disappointed that it only lasted 1 season, a shame honestly.

Unfortunately, I didn't watch this show when it aired, but I was introduced to it by my brother. I love this show and it's sad that it only lasted a season...but at least they made a movie!

Phenomenal show! Action, comedy, romance, drama, intrigue--absolutely brillant! Worth watching it again, I caught onto even more the second time through. At first I didn't think I would like this ''space western'' but an amazing show is an amazing show! I highly recommend this show to anyone. Wish there was more than the 1 season and movie, but it was just too ahead of it's time.

So I can finally claim my geek card as I have got round to watching the cult classic tv series FIREFLY! My sister and I watched all 14 episodes in just over a week :O

I can safely say that the show deserves it’s cult status. The crew of Serenity are basically scavengers and tradesmen trying to survive on the edge of space, bonded by war, love, loyalty and even desperation - which creates a great dynamic in the group and kind of a family feel.

The futuristic backdrop is well thought out, and ultimately timeless too; the mix of western and sci-fi worked really well (I was a bit worried it wouldn’t, but they pulled it off superbly). The story lines were captivating and different each time (I discovered that spn’s Ben Edlund wrote some of my favourite episodes!)

But for me what makes Firefly such a good show is it’s CHARACTERS. The show has 9 actors in it’s main cast, but each is developed, with their own back story and distinct personalities which reflect their background something which we are seeing less of these days…

By about episode 3, I was shouting at the tv "yes, that’s exactly what *insert character name here* would do!” and when your audience can understand your characters so quickly and really GET them, then you’ve got a winning show right there. Personal favourite character is probably a close tie between Zoe, Kaylee, Jayne, Mal… okay basically I loved everyone

It is such a shame the show was cancelled, I can see that it didn’t have the ‘umph’ and action packed feel that seems to be the norm these days, which is probably why the viewing figures weren’t spectacular. BUT YOU DON’T NEED ACTION PACKED TO HAVE A GOOD SHOW! As Firefly has undoubtedly proven here. In the meantime, I look forward to watching the follow-up film “Serenity” and applaud Joss Whedon on his fantastic efforts in creating the show.

I’D DEFINITELY RECOMMEND WATCHING IT!

Firefly is one of the best sci-fi shows EVER. I mean JOSS WHEDON and NATHAN FILLION! What more needs to be said, though you could also say SUMMER GLAU. there you go, I just gave 3 reasons to watch this show. What are you waiting for?
