“Firefly” (2002) (TV) – 4.5/5
I really enjoyed this series and though I’m bummed it was cancelled a) it’s nice to be able to see it all and have it contained and b) I probably wdn’t have watched it otherwise.
I so like the idea of an underground series that had a loyal following and was made into a feature after being cancelled.
The characters and writing are very good and quite clever though not just for the sake of being clever. The bigger story is also good and I didn’t get the feeling that they were just answering questions w/ more questions. Not that they had all the answers, but that the big questions weren’t the main thing: the relationships, characters, individual episodes, etc. were just as important and the big picture.
So again, since my rating is based on how much I ‘like’ something, I gave it a high rating. Part of the reason I like it so much is b/c of the specifics: low budget, grassroots growth, underdog story, etc.
I also watched “Serenity” right after watching the series. Next post.
