4.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch television, grounded before its time.
If you're not a science fiction fan, you may be looking at the endless string of rapturous reviews for "Firefly" and rolling your eyes. While "Firefly" certainly doesn't lack in geek appeal, its sharp writing, excellent cast and often-striking visual style elevate it into the ranks of Just Plain Great Television. After a somewhat bumpy start, this series found its groove...

3.0 out of 5 stars actually pretty good
Watching these DVD's changed my mind about this cancelled series. I still don't like the metally-damaged sister -- she is just annoying. And the Preacher doesn't get to do much in any of the episodes. But the writing is smart and often successfully witty. Many of the central characters are memorable. When one considers how bad the last couple of Star Trek series have...

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary series,
This review is from: Firefly: The Complete Series (DVD)I was introduced to this show by a friend years after it aired, and I have to say - this is a GREAT show! Very sorry they cancelled it, and at least happy they made a movie as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars This You Have Got To See..,
watched Serenity first,because i knew nothing of Fire-Fly,and my gosh what a series,
to put it bluntly what a fricking show,and to think Fox cancelled this show what a bunch of
idiots,everything about this show is so great from all the Actors,to each and every character
they play,from the captain all the way down to the Sheppard,it is so funny too i've never seen
Adam Baldwin in a better role,[no relation to the Baldwin Brothers] here's the reason for fox
cancellation of the show,it took too long to develop they wanted action right away it was too nice,
i guess feel good shows don't cut it in their industry,if you can't show me some guys brain
exploding it don't make for good T.V. way to go Fox,you should've still being running 24.
I'm not going to attempt to dissect each and every episode,but just so you know don't ask
sit back and enjoy it,it will make you feel good if not you're working for Fox.
Love Love this show..Joss Whedon you are a genius,and i see you have a new movie
coming out with Nathan Fillion [Much ado About Nothing]can't wait for that.
This You Have got to See..
5.0 out of 5 stars Must See Series for Any Nathan Fillion or Joss Whedon fans,
This review is from: Firefly: The Complete Series (Bilingual) (DVD)This item was shipped quickly. It was in great shape for a used product. We love the series.
A must have for any Joss Whedon fans. It takes about 2 episodes to get hooked but then you are in love with all of the characters. I wanted to see this show because we are big Castle fans. Nathan Fillion shines in this series. It in an interesting take on a futuristic society with some throwbacks to early settlers mixed in.

This review is from: Firefly: The Complete Series (DVD)A really great series, a pity it's just one season. It's really enjoyable and great to see Joss Whedon's mash of sci fi and western.
