The cheapest i have ever seen this brilliant series!
Much praised and much missed after its premature cancellation, Firefly is the first SF TV series to be conceived by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and cocreator of Angel. Set five centuries in the future, it is a show where the mysterious personal pasts of the crew of the tramp spaceship Serenity continually surface. In fact, it's a Western in space where the losers in a Civil War are heading out to a barren frontier. Mal Reynolds is a man embittered by the war, yet whose love of his comrades perpetually dents his cynicism--even in the 14 episodes that exist we see him warm to the bubbly young mechanic Kaylee, the preacher Book, the idealistic doctor Simon, even to the often demented River, Simon's sister, the psychic result of malign experiments.
Firefly is also about adult emotional relationships, for example Kaylee's crush on Simon, the happy marriage of Mal's second officer Zoe and the pilot Wash, the disastrous erotic stalemate between Mal and the courtesan Inara. Individual episodes deal with capers going vaguely wrong, or threats narrowly circumvented; character and plot arcs were starting to emerge when the show was cancelled. Fortunately, the spin-off movie Serenity ties up some of the ends; and in the meantime, what there is of Firefly is a show to marvel at, both for its tight writing and ensemble acting, and the idiocy of the executives who cancelled it.

On the DVD: Firefly on DVD is presented in anamorphic 1.78:1 with Dolby Surround Sound. It includes commentaries on six episodes by various writers, directors, designers and cast members as well as featurettes on the conception of the show and the design of the spaceship Serenity, four deleted scenes, a gag reel, and Joss Whedon singing the show's theme tune, more or less. One of the things that emerges from all of this is how committed to the project everyone involved with it was, and is--unusually, you end up caring as much for the cast and crew as for the characters.

As this was cult hit, i was intrigued by all the comments ie as above. I bought it and found it sooooo dull. It is like Eastenders in space. There were a few sparking moments and the whole idea could have been so much more as the characters were very interesting.

Great price, boring series!

Do amazon still allow you to claim back cash on a price drop?

I bought this a week or 2 back for more (not much, but if you believe tesco, every little helps)

If you like this show make sure you keep an eye out for it's creator Joss Whedon's new series 'Dollhouse' hopefully not long after it debuts in the US on Feb 13th.

Voted hot and ordered.

I'm a big sci-fi fan and passed on this series when it aired originally as i thought the western theme wasn't to my taste.

I then saw the film and then saw most of the series on sky and realised how wrong i had been.

I can see why the first fans were so upset when it got cancelled.

But just like Firefly don't get too attached to it as its been plagued by so many production problems that those "in the know" are already predicting an early death for it!

I'd bet money on that because of 3 little letters......F......O.....X. :oops:
#26
whatever happened to Joss's statement that he'd never work with Fox again? man, they must have paid him off a lot to get dollhouse (one of the big stumbling blocks for Serenity was that Joss wasn't willing to work with Fox, and Fox weren't happy about letting someone else make the movie).

Still, this show is awesome, and i have ordered cos i lost my copy (was hoping they might get round to releasing it on BD over here, but apparently that doesn't seem to be happening). But i agree with the poster saying B5 is better - I just wish i could pick it up at £8 per season :-D
#27
Again, another long time reader / non-writer.

I can't recommend this series enough. I too got suckered into by purchasing the HDDVD of Serenity after people raved.

It's got everything, action, laughs, great storys, a great rapport with the team cast....

Such a shame it got cancelled.
Oh, and DO watch the series before the film! You can see where the series WAS heading after watching the film...........

B5 did have 97 more episodes to work with, plus its movies. :p

Not quite £8 per season but seems like a steal for all thats included (when its in stock) :thumbsup:

Methos.

TIM: That paintball was meant for me, he’s made this personal
MIKE: I think he made it personal when he slept with your girlfriend.
TIM: Well, now he’s made it more personal.
MIKE: Mmmm, can’t get much more personal then sleeping with your girlfriend.
