Critics Consensus

Firefly earns its audience's adoration with the help of Nathan Fillion's dry delivery, a detailed fantasy world, and compelling storylines -- even if it doesn't stand with creator Joss Whedon's most consistent work.

Audience Reviews for Firefly: Season 1

  • Jan 02, 2022
    By far, one of the best TV shows ever. It was badly marketted by FOX, and then canceled, but yet us fans have kept the signal going. No power in the verse will stop us.
  • Nov 28, 2021
    Wonderful series, too bad it didn't run longer.
  • Nov 10, 2021
    Miss it so hard. :)

    Such a shame this gem of a TV show was never given a second season it really was wonderful.

    I have been a huge SciFi fan my entire TV watching life. I tried watching this show on Fox when it was airing, but could not understand it nor get into it. I found it very confusing, and ended up spending the time watching Deep Space 9 while watching Babylon 5, which I'm fairly certain were in the same time slot on different channels. After the movie was released on DVD, something magical happened. My brother bought me the movie, and my best friend bought me the series, and neither one had discussed their actions with the other. All three of us were amazed, and it goes to show how well my brother and my friend new me. So, I watched the series on DVD and then the movie, and then died a little inside knowing that the show had been cancelled before reaching it's true potential. Sure, it was a little campy, I hate when 'regular gun' is cocked and there's a sci-fi sound effect, and I could do without the holographic pool table, but the show was absolutely amazing, and should have never been cancelled.

    easily my favorite show of all time, it's insane to me that a masterpiece like this was ever even considered to get canceled let alone actually ended up getting canceled. i recommend that everyone watch this since it truly is on it's own level of amazing.

    One of the best sci-fi shows ever made. Clever stories, interesting characters, fun dialogues, and unconventional universe with chinese, companions, western, space, and a tad horror (reavers).
  • Jul 13, 2021
    Seriously the best scifi tv show ever...absolutely brilliant.
  • May 21, 2021
    Firefly has an interesting plot with intense action, but it's mostly forgettable. Especially the characters (except for Kaylee and Captain Reynolds).
  • Apr 20, 2021
    Absolute masterpiece if i ever saw one. Wonderful & realistic character design, every single one of them is fascinating. Watch episodes in original order, 1st & 2nd got switched up for tv, stupid decision though
