FIREFLY (2002)


Creator: Joss Whedon. 

Cast: Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk. 

Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy. They get jobs legal or illegal to survive.

Here was a great series that lasted one season only. Whedon figure out let’s do a sci-fi series space cowboy  basically like a sci-fi western. well so far so good. The crew includes Zoe (Gina Torres), Mal’s second-in-command; her husband, Wash (Alan Tudyk), who’s also the pilot; Kaylee (Jewel Staite), the fresh- scrubbed ship’s engineer; and Jayne (Adam Baldwin), the dumb muscle. On board are the beautiful Inara (Morena Baccarin), who’s a prostitute finally the profession is legal and highly regarded. And there’s Book (Ron Glass), a religious man spreading the gospel planet to planet. Let’s not forget the doctor, Simon (Sean Maher), and his crazy-genius sister, River (Summer Glau), who escaped the clutches of the Alliance and may have been part of a secret experiment of theirs. So far you have a genius series. I think Weldon loved star wars and western so he figures why not combine the two together. Of course the language is silly but good. Brilliant series from Wheldon. I am going to get that in my collection soon.
