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).

    Cheers! Sienfeld! MASH! FIREFLY! All of them started with low ratings. The only difference between Firefly and the others is their networks gave them a chance to grow their audience. FOX didn’t. They could have had a major hit on their hands. Very sad.

    Bring it back or I will destroy all your networks :p Seriously though, imagine how much money you could make this time round. But then again, if you truly believe that most people are morons who need moronic shows to keep them fixed on the screen, then you must have a crew full of morons working for you as well. Makes sense…

    Firefly was and is unequivocally the best series I have seen to date. The characters were worth watching, even if individually they were not exactly the role models for a perfect society, and were certainly better in both morals and behavior than the dribbled excuses for reality shows that saturate the airwaves at present. The show was denied even a fair chance at survival, with its schedule changes, airing order, etc., and yet still managed to evoke such a strong following that it managed to produce a major motion picture. Even if only for a TV movie, the ‘verse deserves at least one last hurrah, if not a relight of that glorious home we call Serenity for many stories to come. . .

    Truly the best television show. Such depth and complexity. Such a sad thing the network couldn’t keep it. At least serenity will soar on through the years with the millions of fans supporting her.

    It’s been several years now since the crushing murder of this brilliant and underrated series and I still miss it . I wish the networks would get their stuff together and STOP trashing such amazing shows! Not every viewer is a brainless drone, and we need to have more intelligent programming that is also fun to watch! Get your act together exec’s!!
