Firefly was the awesomest television show ever. It’s a shame it was canceled after just 14 or so episodes.
The show is set in the future where people have moved to a separate solar system and travel from planet to planet using space ships and all.
What I liked about the show is how real it keeps itself. There are no aliens. The conflict is between man and man (and some women, actually plenty women).
There’s comedy, drama, plot and character development all blended so well you won’t know what hit you. The way the show was filmed was wonderful as well. In fact, I believe shows like Arrested Development and Battlestar Galactica learned lessons from the way Firefly was filmed because I see so many similarities.
My favourite episode is probably ‘Out of Gas’. It has that quote, “Everybody dies alone.”
Poetry in motion.
