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.
A solid series with a fun concept that takes you on a new adventure each week to explore this new universe. Firefly gets a lot of rep as an absolutely amazing show, but its lack of central plot line (which may be a result of only having one season) makes it a good show, just not anything exceptional.
If you liked Firefly, I recommend Cowboy Bebop
Another disappointing ending. The film (Serenity) does a good job of tying up a lot of loose ends but there was certainly a lot more I wanted to see! Even so, the series is EXCELLENT, well acted, lovely plot, witty writing and a good example of what can be done with hair, make-up, costume and staging!
I'm still in mourning. For Wash, For Shepard Book and of course for the entire show itself. You have to ask some serious questions of these idiots that make the decisions on TV networks over what gets cancelled and what gets renewed. As far as corny scifi shows go this will go down in history as one of (if not THE) greatest of all time. Great casting, great writing and great concept. I'm not even a huge Joss Wheedon fan and even though this was a little on the cheesy side it was bags of fun and utterly depressing when it was over. *sigh* we still miss you Serenity.
Great show that was cancelled far too soon. a futuristic sci-fi western with a bit of a steam punk vibe to it. the characters are funny and likable and the plot draws you in. i highly recommend it to any and all space/sci-fi or even western fans, or anyone looking to try something different.
I'm a browncoat through and through, so what can I give this but a 5 star rating? I love the characters, love the drama and the snarky/sarcastic/witty sense of humor. Somehow the cast and crew seem to take it incredibly seriously while at the same time having a hell of a good time with it all. But of course... as everyone knows and agrees on by now... it ended too soon.
