Pros: Engaging characters and a storyline both different and familiar
Like many, I am a late convert having learned of the show only after it's release on DVD. Indeed, I bought it on sale based on Whedon's name and the packaging. I had not yet even read any reviews. It is a shame Firefly ran no longer as it is easily o...ne of the best series I have seen in a while. It has been described by some as a space-western and if one seeks to narrow the definition to preciseness, that is essentially accurate. The reality is that Firefly is pure sci-fi with a western veneer that makes the setting more easily grasped. Much of the starfaring sci-fi genre is space opera. Not so Firefly. These are little people trying to make it in a harsh world. The only operatic aspect is the Alliance interest in Simon and River but the crew of the Serenity seeks not regime change or release from oppression. Mal and his first officer have already tried that and failed. They wish only to live free and under the radar. The characters are in someways cliched. Inarra is the fancy hooker with a heart, Mal the honorable scoundrel, and Jayne, the tough guy whose bark is (slightly) worse than his bite. However, the actors and actresses are appealing and do a credible job of breathing life into their roles. I like it a lot and if I was forced to compare it to another show, it would be the Adventures of Briscoe County Junior. Too good for the common masses, I guess! Read more Less
Pros: Great story, even better actors, awesome fun
Cons: Lasted only one season
This show is a true delight for any SF fun that is looking for a well rounded story with great actors. Each show is a small movie worth taking your date to. For some mysterious reason it lasted only one season. What a shame!
