Review


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.

Featuring all the episodes of the hip sci-fi show from 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' creator Joss Whedon.

Episodes comprise:

1.Serenity
2.The Train Job
3.Bushwacked
4.Shindig
5.Safe
6.Our Mrs Reynolds
7.Jaynestown
8.Out Of Gas
9.Ariel
10.War Stories
11.Trash
12.The Message
13.Heart Of Gold
14.Objects In Space


also £10.95 at Zavvi, not sure if the Walkers codes are still knocking around but potentially slightly cheaper with them
- megalomaniac

Great series

I think I'll have to buy this :)

Great price - I've only seen Serenity but I enjoyed that and have heard good things.
#6
Great Series... it has been cheaper, but this is still a decent price.
voting hot

Been meaning to go for it but heard the characters are unbelievable in a "we've got the whole of space to explore but yet we end up with a crew who hate each other" kind of way.. Still, you could say that about Cowboy Bebop and that is amazing.
#8
'The Train Job' and 'Out of Gas' my personal fave episodes. Bargain for 9.99
#9
One of my favourite shows, pity it was cancelled so early.

Totally agree with cdm22. This is an amazing series and my favourite TV show ever. It even edges out Space: Above & Beyond from the number one position.

Looks like the firefly cult is out in force. Decent show for a decent price, just don't be expecting anything special or award winning.

Great show, buy buy buy.

Space: Above & Beyond, now that is proper Sci-Fi and probably my favourite of all time. Any ideas on where to get a copy of that without ordering from the US?

I also saw Serenity before watching Firefly and still thoroughly enjoyed the show 8)
#20
Still prefer Blakes 7 for my favorite rogue spacefarers. However it is good and worth 9.99.
#21
An excellent show and one that every Sci-Fi fan should own.
Hey, even if you aren't a sci-fi fan then give this a go at a tenner.

I'm actually half way through re-watching it for about the tenth time.

For those of you that watch Castle, have you spotted plenty of Firefly references?
#22
I'd definitely order a blu-ray copy if it was released over here, the US set is region free but you'd paid well over the odds to get it over here. I'll keep my DVDs for now.

Yep, there have been a few, most notably 'hands of blue' medical gloves and the obvious space cowboy halloween outfit :D

Yep, ordered that myself a few weeks ago and turned up quicker than most UK deliveries. Now sits next to my R1 dvd set, R2 dvd set (which was a present for the other half before we lived together), and R4 dvd set tin version! Hmm 4 copies of the same series, might be slightly obsessed! :D

Those statistics you've quoted could be used as a definition of a cult following.

Nevertheless this is a good show and a good price. Hot.

A couple of good ones were him speaking Chinese then explaining it as "from a TV show I used to love" and shooting a gun from someone's hand. When Beckett says "nice shooting" he replies with "I was aiming for his head" - a line nicked from Jayne.

Could being the operative word.

That really is no justification for describing previous posters in the thread who had positive things to say as a cult. It isn't sending out the message that 19 in 20 people enjoyed this show immensely.

There is a justification because you're all in the minoirty and that makes it a cult show. Oh, and the previous guy was bang on, you confirmed it with the imdb stats.
#31
there is rumours of a new series / movie due to the box sets needing a new batch produced. this is from the guy how was the pilot but cant find the link.
#32
does this have an ending given it only lasted one season???

The series doesn't really as I don't think they knew they were getting canned but then they made the movie Serenity and it ends it. Bit of a pity as they had to tidy up so much in the movie but still well worth getting and watching. Love this show.
#34
Not sure why this has so much attention - it's been this price (and apparently cheaper) several times before... Not the greatest deal.
Thanks anyway OP.

I still think Jon79's comment was entirely fair. His post was balanced, there is a cult following for the show.

It was my understanding that in the realm of TV and film the word cult is used to describe a franchise with a relatively small but dedicated fan base. It can also be used to directly describe said fan base. It's nothing sinister, it's just not the crowd to ask if you know nothing about Firefly and want a balanced review.

I think those rumours are from a few years back.

GREAT series - must buy for anyone (sci-fi or not).

His comment didn't seem fair to me and I shall explain. Telling people not to expect something special when 19/20 people rate it 8.0 or higher out of a sample of 40,000 is not fair. The word cult implies a level of devotion or fanboism but maybe he did not intend that meaning so I've no objection to just leaving it.

Anyway I'm sorry to argue the point but I admit that the opinion of individuals about movies is something I have a bug bear about on this forum if said opinions don't reflect the view of the majority given that we are trying to recommend or dissuade people from making good or bad choices about movies.

The number of times people say a film is terrible on here and on IMDB it has a respectable rating of at least 6.5/10. You could argue the flaws of imdb but at least that is a consensus of opinion of thousands of people vs 1 guy.

Anyway its not a big deal, just a subject that I sometimes wonder about.

When this came out on tv is was touted as the latest Joss Whedon series creator of Buffy etc etc so I didn't watch it :p

I like my scifi - have the complete series of Babylon5 which is probaby the best ever scifi series for dialogue and characterisation. Eventually after hearing soo many positive comments about Firefly I got the series earlier this year. Watched the first couple of episodes and all I could think was that this was all wrong, cowboys in space? WTF!

Anyway, I stuck with it and its absolutely fantastic to such an extent I don't know if I can honestly say B5 is the best ever scifi series. I think it has to share the honours with Firefly. Characters, dialogue, casting and acting are all superb....

Anyway - if you are a scifi fan and you haven't seen this - watch it and make your own mind up......

I'm off to the crappy town where I'm a hero.....
