Firefly plot

Five hundred years in the future, civilization has reached a whole new frontier, and the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity wants to do their part. They take on any job, legal or not, to have fuel in the tank and food on the table. But things get a little more complicated when they bring in a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. For example, they must flee and do everything they can to escape the Alliance ships and the carnivorous Reavers, who live on the edge of the galaxy.

Firefly season 1

Enjoying it for the second time, what a great series! Joss Whedon was on top of his game here and one well-written dialogue after another flew out of his pen, each time wrapped in a fine standalone episode in which the crew ends up in quite a bit of trouble.

And the cast is incredibly strong, well acted and enthusiastic. A striking number of Firefly actors have made it and you can see it in other series. Baccarin in V and Homeland, Baldwin in Chuck, Torres in Hannibal, just to name a few. I also really like Nathan Fillion, not a Han Solo ripoff but an antihero all his own with his heart in the right place. I should have let him play Nathan Drake in Uncharted, just cut.

The space western setup means that the budget must have been kept within reasonable limits since many episodes just take place in the next settlement (and of course every planet looks exactly like the south of America...what the heck).

Also can't wait to see Serenity, which was an unexpected and much appreciated closing gift for the "browncoats" (the Firefly fanbase), but first watch the series!

Firefly season 1

Nice series, passed me by at the time, but still very much worth watching. Visually already quite outdated, but the sympathetic, well-developed characters and the cool humor are still top notch. The mixture of science fiction and western works surprisingly well. It's a shame they couldn't finish the season according to the original schedule, as things now end quite abruptly. The film Serenity forms a kind of conclusion, but it is visually and substantively quite different. Anyway, the series is better.
