    Firefly (TV Series 2002–2003)



    Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small, spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
    Creator:

    Joss Whedon
    Stars:

    Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres and Alan Tudyk


    Norenrad mentioned Firefly on the Tag Lines thread so I thought I would use it as a starting point for this thread. I didn't like the series when I first saw it for reasons I might get into later. Later, when Serenity came out I rented it and the film gave me a new appreciation of the series. Re-runs are on frequently, often in a marathon on cable.
    Discuss!

    I enjoyed Firefly on DVD, it was so short lived on TV that I missed the original airing entirely.

    Reminded me of OUTLAND, the Sean Connery film from 1981.
    Classed as a Space Western. First of it's type I recall viewing.

    Outland is still a very enjoyable film. It was called "High Noon in Space" by some. which actually isn't a bad idea.

    Firefly became Serenity at a later date. It was great series as either.

    I watched that movie about four times after it came out and once more about a year ago. When I watched it again that last time, I noticed how well it holds up against time. I don't know if it was done on purpose, but they stayed away from technical shots that would look outdated later on... OK, the exploding face, but that was all.
