A space-western with a motley down-and-out crew struggling on the edge of a semi-dystopian planet-spanning civilization.
Easily one of the best television shows I've ever seen. I don't just consider this mandatory, I will dog people to watch it. I bought two copies of this series just to give one away.
Let me stress this. This is a series so good that even after cancellation there was enough popularity to produce a movie. A movie for a cancelled series. The only one I've ever heard of. Serenity - (2005 movie) is itself mandatory viewing for those who have enjoyed Firefly.
Mandatory viewing. I have been brought to tears more than once.
Continues with Serenity - (2005 movie)
- Serenity uses the same characters in the same world, but is not meant to progress story arcs from the series.
