I watched most of the series at my Uncle's house this weekend.
This is so unfair, I remember watched this series when it first came out and not being able to understand it because I came into what I thought was the middle of the season. It was not in fact the middle of the series that was where it really started with episode 2 that was why I was so confused. Firefly has gained another fan I will be one till I die.
Basic plot is standard-two different factions fight a war one side The Alliance had more guns and ships than the other side the disorganized and poorly armed Independents. They do not lack for courage but the Independents are forced to give way in the face of superior fire power.
Six years later those Independents who have the guts have hightailed it to the end of space finding an uneasy niche amongst the smugglers, pirates and other unsavory types that run the different systems.
The series follows the adventures of one of these crews.
I don't understand why this show was canned especially when you play the episodes in the order they were meant to be viewed so the plot makes some type of sense. The people in charge of Fox are idiots, but I guess they had to make room for Joe Millionaire 25
Trust me any of you that had a problem with this series when it was aired because the episodes were being aired out of sequence are not alone. I urge you to buy the DVD and may your experience with this fresh, original and unjustifiably canceled show be as positive as mine was
Overall-I hope the Firefly will be the Star Trek of the 21st century, but it probably will not be because there is no justice in the world.
Remember guys "You can't take the Sky from me"
