News & Interviews for Firefly: Season 1
It's different and it's good, but Nathan Fillion is the wimpiest hero since Mr. Limpet.
The dialogue is not quite as snappy as Buffy or Angel, but both those shows started slowly and built momentum. Firefly may do the same... It's a provocative mishmash of future shock and peculiar anachronisms.
"Firefly" blasts off in fine style. It's a lot of spaced-out fun.
[Joss] Whedon's approach is intriguing, and the storytelling refuses to settle for simple heroics.
Whether it's enough for a ya'll-come-back-y'hear depends, I suspect, on your faith in Whedon's ability to whip it into shape once it docks.
The key to shows like this is its characters and the way they interrelate. Though arguably overly-calculated in this regard, Firely's characters are immediately interesting and their personal stories and struggles involving.
Premiere is quite entertaining. Just don't go in expecting your average sci-fi, outer-space series. Go in looking for a Western with sci-fi touches.
Without the patina of [Joss] Whedon's name, Firefly is just a nondescript adventure hour in a Friday time period in which Fox has had 11 different series in 11 years.
The revitalizing take Firefly gives us of our potential civilization five hundred years from now is a unique one, not marred by overly idealistic sympathies or absurd, estranged technology.
Audience Reviews for Firefly: Season 1
Feb 01, 2021Firefly fails to reach the same narrative highs as some of Joss Whedon's other, more consistent work, but it does boast fully realized characters with an unbreakable on-screen chemistry, unforgettable dialogue and an impressive visual flair.
Oct 30, 2020There is this one question that from eons untold haunts many a sci-fi enthusiasts all over the world, and it goes like this: "<Star Wars> or <Star Trek>?". Well, from now on to that question I firmly answer: "<Firefly>". This show, despite being so very, very short, is not only a definitive visual work in the entirety of the space western genre (sorry, "Mandalorian", but you ain't even close), it is a bona fide definition of a cult classic. Nothing that I've seen in similar works (including both of aforementioned titans of science fiction) achieves so effortlessly such an Olympic level of writing, and that applies to it all: originality of characters, their dialogues (especially the clever one-liners), plot structure both in episodes and in the series as a whole... And there is a thousand and a one other things that went well here (cast, sets, world-building, costumes, design of it all), so if I were to name them all, this review would quickly become a book, so I will try and contain myself. Although I must at least mention Nathan Fillion and how splendidly he embodied the role of captain Malcolm Raynolds – an archetype of the space smuggler with heart of gold that, in my personal opinion, outranks even Han Solo himself. And with all this praise said and done I can now only add one last thing, with a smile on my face: "There's no place I can be since I found <Serenity>...".

Sep 23, 2020The show that should have been the best science fiction series of all time, with wonderful attention to detail and not a single dud episode. Fondly remembered by a loyal audience, its genius was dis missed at the time in favour of more profitable ventures.
Sep 16, 2020What else really needs to be said? This is basically a masterclass in all forms of cinema: narrative, music, screenplay, framing, presentation, costume, concept. Firefly is eternally strong, and its indoctrination among the most cultish of classics through its strained creation and distribution only makes its legendary aesthetic even more unique and inspiring. This is a true gem among the sci-fi canon, and there will likely never be anything that hits the notes quite as right as Friefly did.
Aug 23, 2020Hands down, the best SciFi TV series ever! Of course there were only a little over a dozen episodes, so Firefly never had the opportunity to stale.
Aug 21, 2020It was really such a damn crying shame that this show was as screwed over as it was because the show kicks ass, despite lasting only 14 episodes, 3 of which never even aired. Maybe Joss Whedon should've considering pitching this show to a different company. After all, his scripts for his last two sci-fi endeavours were hit big time by executive meddling. While I perhaps won't become as fanatic about the show as those who started watching it and got PISSED with the network leaving the show to rot, that doesn't mean I didn't find a lot worth loving. The writing is sharp and witty with some hilarious bait-and-switch moments, the acting is stellar, the action sequences are enjoyable, the cheesy camerawork serves as part of the show's charm, the world-building makes the show stand out primarily by being essentially anti-Star Trek with no aliens or ambassadors, the characters are memorable and fleshed out pretty well and the cast shares great chemistry with each other. You can definitely get the feeling of friendship and camarederie with the crew of Serenity and clearly had a lot of fun hanging out with each other, everybody having their own dynamic with each other that are all entertaining in their own right. Maybe in an alternate reality, Firefly is this big TV show that became a cultural phenomenon the same way Fox shows like The Simpsons and The X-Files left an impact but the fourteen episodes we got to see in this reality definitely make the show worth checking out. Besides, the series stilll managed to live on with a movie and a lot of comic books. If that wasn't reassurance that this show hasn't fallen into obscurity, I don't know what is.
Aug 11, 2020A must see mismanaged show with a fantastic cast and a story that should have lasted forever.
