In Firefly, a highly underrated science fiction/western hybrid, Joss Whedon manages to create an interesting, thrilling, and often deep, series packaged with bold statements, character depth, compelling plots and typical Whedonesque wit. Firefly is set five hundred years in the future, within a solar system controlled by the central government, The Alliance. Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), who was involved in the war against The Alliance, leads the crew of his firefly-class ship, Serenity, on a journey with no destination. Always moving and trying their best to steer clear of The Alliance, Mal and his team do all that they can to survive, picking up passengers and often taking on shady jobs from even shadier people. When one of Serenity's passengers is discovered as a fugitive running from The Alliance, things get slightly more complicated for the crew of Serenity--a crew with a dynamic that renders Firefly as a highly enjoyable series.

Opening Theme

Written By: Joss Whedon
Performed By: Sonny Rhodes

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...

An example of the american tv networks getting it wrong so badly. An excellent entertaining show, good characters, a potential story waiting to be told. Once seen never forgotten. A very sad day when this got cancelled. Read more

Mal, who dressed up as a woman, and Jayne take their guns out and resolve the issue, with a little help from Zoe in the back of the carriage... read more.
