Firefly finale lights up the sky
The Firefly tv series and its successor film Serenity are among the most intelligent adult offerings in the whole of filmed scifi. The characters are warm and real, the excitement often intense and the humour sometimes black but always funny.
I ran across a couple of Firefly episodes on the SciFi Channel then read more about them on the website Scifi-247 as Serenity was about to come out. Bought the DVD of the series and fell in love with it. Top-notch scifi and wonderful entertainment. It also inspired me with a deep loathing for Fox (how could anyone pull this series?) and wonderment that the BBC never picked it up.
