500 years in the future, in the wake of a universal civil
war, Firefly centres on the crew of Serenity,
a small transport spaceship that doesn't have a planet to
call home. Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, a defeated soldier
who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian-governed
Alliance, will undertake any job - legal or not - to stay
afloat and keep his crew fed...
many people just didn't give Firefly the chance it
deserved; hence it got unfairly cancelled so early. But a
revival is currently underway with a film release due next
year which may lead to, oddly enough, a spin off series if
it becomes a success.
This DVD box set is the mutt's nuts. Don't be put off by the
idea of westerns if that's not your cup of tea, because Firefly
creates it own little genre, and it rocks! At least on a par
with Buffy, if not better, Firefly brought something
new to our TV screens with an exciting space exploration story,
not the stuff of Trek that could lull you off to sleep
are many worlds the characters go to on their travels, most
of the time in order to hide from their many enemies or get
involved in yet another dodgy deal. Each episode is its own
mini-story, and each one will grip you from the word go. The
show's success is hinged on the relationships of the nine
main characters on board the ship Serenity. These relationships
will take you through the whole spectrum of emotions, and
as you learn more about each of them, you will learn to love
them all. They are just normal people trying to get by, but
the paths their lives take lead to some very interesting stories!
all the characters Adam Baldwin Jayne Cobb is the most ambiguous.
Is he one of the good guys? Or will he sell his crew out if
the price is right? He's already done it to one crew he was
with. This character is also the most amusing and provides
most of the episodes light relief.
the show ends as though there are more episodes to follow
- it may have been better if the production had ended on the
very moving episode The Message. This episode sees
Serenity having to transport an apparent corpse back
to its homeworld. But the corpse turns out to be an old army
buddy of Captain Reynolds and ZoŽ Warren.
