I’m probably the last Joss Whedon fan in the world to see it, but on Saturday I picked up the series box set of Firefly from HMV for less than half price, and last night I watched the opening double header, “Serenity”.

Errr – wow!

I’m a long-term Whedon addict (Buffy/Angel/any film he’s been involved with), so I expected good writing, but some of the interplay between characters was just superb. The effects were brilliantly done, and the music was just right. It’s clear that JW has a backstory in mind for all of the characters, and I just wonder how much of it I’ll get from the small number of episodes that were made.

I haven’t got the movie yet, although it has been on my wishlist for ages and Amazon are offering it at a reasonable price… more than can be said for HMV, otherwise I’d have picked it up at the time.

  1. Welcome to the Serenifly ‘verse!
    Once you’ve been in Serenity, you never leave . . . you just learn to live there.


  2. I cant believe it’s taken you this long, firefly rules…


  3. I just discovered it myself. Saw Serenity this weekend after finishing the series. Awesome.


  4. I can’t believe it took you so long either!

    Although it was utter madness, I think I’m glad it got cancelled before they ran out of ideas. I hate programs that keep getting churned out long past their sell by date.


  5. I am a big fan of both firefly and serenity.
    I think there are plenty more ideas to do in the storyline and it is such a shame that the network killed it (not even before the end of the first season).

    It looks doubtful that anything more will come if it, but if it does I will be among the first to buy it!


  6. I have to check this out … I am a huge Buffy fan myself. At least I WAS, before it “jumped the shark”. Updating my Netflix queue now… ­čÖé


  7. At what point do you think that Buffy jumped the shark then? That site comes to no clear conclusion. Personally I don’t think it did.


  8. I read with interest yesterday (but didn’t get round to blogging) that Firefly is going to become a virtual world. Can’t wait.
