TV show description:
This popular Joss Whedon series effectively mixes the science-fiction and Western genres. In the year 2517, the renegade crew of the rag-tag, Firefly-class spaceship Serenity makes their living in a distant star system via unorthodox means.
Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his first mate Zoe Washburne (Gina Torres) are veteran “Browncoats” of the Unification War — a failed attempt to resist the evil Alliance’s control.
They are joined by pilot and Zoe’s husband Hoban “Wash” Washburne (Alan Tudyk), former mercenary Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin), mechanic Kaywinnit Lee “Kaylee” Frye (Jewel Staite), religious Shepherd Derrial Book (Ron Glass), Companion Inara Serra (Morena Baccarin), and Dr. Simon Tam (Sean Maher) and his prodigy sister River (Summer Glau).
