Firefly and Serenity

Post by Strider » Mon Jan 30, 2006 5:19 am

Over Christmas break I finally got around to renting and watching the movie Serenity, and I was totally blown away. It was the best Science Fiction I've seen since the original Star Wars, and that my friends is saying a lot. Soon after watching Serenity, I was told that it was after a short-lived TV Series called Firefly. Well, I though to myself, it was cancelled, so it must have been crap. Two days ago I finished watching the Firefly Series, and it is one of the best TV Shows I've seen since Star Trek: Next Generation (notice a pattern here?) So if you havn't seen any of these, start with the show, and then watch the movie.

I can only hope that Fox gets smart and starts up a second Firefly season. Go to these two sites if you are interested in making this happen.

Strider : a second Firefly season would require some Fox executive to confess he was wrong in cancelling it. Hell hasn't frozen over yet, so ...

FOX has given up on Firefly, and there is a very slim chance it will come back, but not impossible.  The Family Guy was cancelled, but was brought back after killer DVD sales (which Firefly has also had).  But actually, an independant film company is currently investigating the idea of purchasing the rights from FOX and making a second season on a pay per view basis.  Hence the survey at fireflyseason2.com.

Totally agree with the OP.  Serenity is an absolutely class movie, surprisingly good in fact!
