Creator: Joss Whedon
First Aired: September 20th, 2002
Episode Count: 14
Firefly takes place 500 years in the future, where the world is split into two factions – the alliance and rebels. A war raged on for several years until the rebels were defeated, the alliance then gained control of many of the main planets and prospered them into big nation hubs. Firefly takes place after this war and tells the story of a space ship named Serenity flying around the galaxy with a old rebel sergeant and his crew. Since they fly a small travel ship they perform many jobs throughout the galaxy trying to survive. Each episode deals with a new job and the dangers that they face during that job.
The cast of Firefly was excellently picked by Josh Whedon; they all have great chemistry together. Each cast member plays his or her part as a different persona. The characters play roles such as a tough asshole, caring mechanic, a hot companion/whore, and even a religious figure. This leads this show in different and refreshing directions each episode.
Don't fuck with me
Since the first episode I was captivated by the quality and presentation of this show. For a show that was made in 2002 the special effects are quite outstanding. In fact this show won an award in 2002 for best use of technology. It is very impressive how they portray each planet or city. The show seems to have a western appeal mixed with sci-fi. The mix is quite unbelievable and crazy, but it does work quite well. I think that’s the kind of style Joss Whedon was searching for.
This show mixes elements of Comedy, Drama, and action for every episode keeping it exciting and captivating. Much like with Buffy (Josh Whedon’s critically acclaimed series) the episodes usually change drastically from the first, with sparkling new ideas. Although I do believe that the first 2 episodes seemed to be less exciting than the last 12, even still they all still show that TV can keep you on the edge of your seat.
Not bad for 2002
If you are looking for a good Sci-Fi show, this is it. Although the show got cancelled due to Fox changing its show time schedule around, that does not mean this show is not good. This show is in fact one of the best Sci-Fi’s to date, coming 2nd to battlestar galactica in my mind. Check this show out; there are 14 episodes in total.

The characters were some of the most amazing and dynamic, with chemistry that meshed with each person in such a way that it would bring tears to your eyes to know how the show ends. I am a browncoat for life because of this series and love and support it every day, because of the sheer passion that was involved in it's creation. It shows.

Firefly is my most favouriteist TV show ever. Such a shame they had to go and cancel it and make Serenity.

The first one, yes. The second one, in a few years. The third one, announced
If Firefly originally aired on Sci-Fi I bet it would still be on the air today...or even if Sci-Fi picked up Firefly like it did with Stargate I bet it would still be on the air.
P.S. Fox Sucks.

On the same note; I'm about to head off and see Jewel "Kaylee" Staite at a convention in an hour or so. Yay.
I am huge fan of this show. I own the series and movie on DVD and blu ray and have met 5/9 of the cast including Jewel Staite. And she is so nice IRL. She is of course different to her character and she is very sarcastic. I have my DVD set and blu ray set and movie autographed by them. My favorite of the cast is Summer Glau. She is the nicest and kindest of any of the cast I have met. In fact she is the nicest of any celebrity I've met. If you want to know more just click this
