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.
This. THIS is good television.
BRING IT BACK!
Short of bringing it back (if the actors are aged beyond the integrity of the show), recast it and remake it.
The premise of the show was to good to waste.
Seriously this show was amazing - summed up to SPACE COWBOYS.
Ok... I'm ranting like a fan-boy. I'll take it back a step.
If you're reading this: watch Firefly.
Make your decision for yourself.
One of the few times I've loved a show which has been cancelled so quickly. The universe, casting, storytelling and effects are all spot on and although the Movie helped round things off I can't help but think this could have produced 5 great seasons of television.
Cowboys in space! Or mercenaries in space? However you put it, the show is brilliant! The world that is created here is so interesting and fun, that it's a real bummer that the show got cancelled. And how many insider jokes have emerged from it! A real treat for sure.
love this show!! one of the best syfy show of all time and like all good syfy show they ended it to soon. Do like they came back with a movie to wrap some of it up but the season could go so much longer.
Awesome show, just wish I had found it before it ended as I am sure many others do. I feel if everyone who saw Firefly after it canceled had found it when it started Firefly would have continued longer.
Whedon's sci-fi, western series that ended way before its prime. Firefly gained a large, dedicated fan base (called the Browncoats) for a reason and reason is evident upon viewing. Smartly scripted and having an intriguing storyline, Firefly's influence was so big that they made a movie for fans in order to tie up loose ends and give much needed closure.
