For those of you who don’t know, Firefly was probably the best sci-fi series to ever grace network television. If you can’t accept that, then it was at least the best western to ever grace network television. Are you interested now? Firefly is an interesting, exciting, and humorous space-drama with a western flavor. And no, I don’t mean “western” as in “North America”, I mean “western” as in “cowboys, bars, and dusty plains”. Even Orson Scott Card agrees that Firefly is “the best space-opera sci-fi series ever on television.” Unfortunately, Firefly was cancelled before completing it’s first season. Why, you ask?

Hopefully, if it does go over scenes that we’ve already seen, it’ll have that pristine, new-movie shine. Which episode is your favorite? Which one do you show to the people who haven’t heard about it?
My favourite is Jaynestown, simply as Jayne is front and centre and such a great character
The best ones to show people is the pilot (obviously, saves people asking question about who is who) and the Out of Gas episode, as it also gives a bit of back story on the cast and is such a great episode
