When I started watching Firefly I had low expectations... Scifi with a western flavor? The big selling point on Fox was that it was from Joss Whedon and unfortunately at the time I started watching I was not yet a Whedon fan. I enjoyed the first episode I saw and continued watching and then suddenly I realized that I was head over heals in love with this show! And then Fox in their infinite wisdom decided to cancel it... Firefly is wonderfully written, the stories are exciting and smart and you care deeply about the characters. I can't recommend this show highly enough. I will always be grateful for having found this wonderful show, even though I will always be sad that it was pulled off the air *way* too early. Through Firefly I have now become a devoted Joss Whedon fan and will watch anything he is involved in.

There are times when you see a movie or tv show or read a book and you just know - just know - that you've enjoyed an experience that you don't want to end. You don't want to leave the theater or you rush back to the book store hoping that there are other volumes on the shelf. And on occasion, a TV show grabs you and makes you look forward to the next show. "Firefly" is such a tv show. Fox has been praised for its creativity, its determination to bring different programming to the small screen and quite often, it's ability to see greatness even if the audience takes a little while to come around. Then, there are the times that they act just like the other big networks and pull the plug when the ratings haven't been the best. Firefly grabbed me and wouldn't let go. From the haunting theme song to the characters that were so complex and had so much promise, I just knew that once the audience was found, the show would last for several seasons. Alas, Fox was nearsighted and cancelled what should have been one of the greatest Sci-Fi shows in TV history. Am I over the top in my praise? No. The show had a humanity and a depth that was far better than anything else on the screen. There were so many future stories to tell and so many ways Serenity and her crew could have travelled the stars. Buy this DVD set. Show it to your friends and family. Within the first few episodes you'll be hooked. You'll care about each one of the characters and wonder how their stories will evolve. You'll enjoy the humor and wit along with the twists and turns in the plotlines. And then, when you put the final disk on your player, you'll feel a little bit sad and angry that nearsighted executives took this wonderful, wonderful drama away from you. Lastly, this series is one that the whole family can watch and enjoy together. My retired parents watched the episodes non-stop for three days and can't wait for the movie.

Product Overview

Five hundred years in the future there's a whole new frontier, and the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity is eager to stake a claim on the action. They'll take any job, legal or illegal, to keep fuel in the tanks and food on the table. But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. Now they find themselves on the run, desperate to steer clear of Alliance ships and the flesh-eating Reavers who live on the fringes of space.

Includes all 14 episodes, 3 of which were never broadcast.

Editors Note
Note Joss Whedon follows up his hugely successful BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER series for Fox with FIREFLY, an action-packed fusion of the science-fiction and western genres. Set five hundred years in the future, FIREFLY depicts a troubled world after a massive universal civil war. The resulting power party, the Alliance, control everyone and everything, except for Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the crew of his spaceship, Serenity. As the Alliance continues to wreak havoc on the world, Malcolm does what he can to restore order to his surroundings.
