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. 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.

  2. 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!
