As the 2005 theatrical release of Serenity made clear, Firefly was a science fiction concept that deserved a second chance. Devoted fans (or “Browncoats”) knew it all along, and with this well-packaged DVD set, those who missed the show’s original broadcasts can see what they missed.

I despise television. I even gave it up last year, and now only see a few shows a friend and I watch together. “The West Wing”. “24”. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.

Until last fall. Then I saw “Firefly”, named somewhat whimsically about a cargo ship whose end lights up when it accelerates. But this is no flashy futuristic show about technical wonders, but rather a very nitty-gritty character study of nine very individual people.

Joss Whedon, who created “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”, had an idea for a science fiction show unique to that “Southern California born/spent time in Britain as a teenager” background of his: He read a book about the ground level grunts of the American Civil War called “The Rebel Angels” and wanted to do a TV series about the people who didn’t make the history books: the people history stepped on. He wanted to do a story set in a future about a ship and where it went. Not a vast engine of war or a great vessel of exploration and diplomacy, but an old tramp steamer of a ship, so small it didn’t even have a mounted gun, that made its way through thick and thin by taking any job, anywhere, no questions asked.

The nine people on board the Firefly-class ship “Serenity” aren’t rich, famous, particularly smart or particularly gifted, for the most part. They all have pasts, and not all of them are comfortable about talking about themselves. They live in the aftermath of a major war that lead to the forceable unification of all of humanity, and not all of them were on the same side. The ship’s name, “Serenity” is that of the climactic battle of that war, and they find themselves still trapped psychologically in a war that ended six years before. They have doubts, fears, old pains and new concerns, like where their next job is coming from and whether they’ll live through it, because the few people that can hire them and will hire them have scant concern for ethics, the law or good manners. Sometimes your employer is more dangerous to you than the law you’re trying to avoid.

And this is a show about the outskirts: there are laser guns, hoverships and advanced technology, but few can afford them. Big Dumb Bullets are still cheaper than Flashy Powered Blasters, and on the frontier reliability is more important than fashion, particularly when the other fellow has a habit of firing first. A horse will do you better than a powersled if you have lots of grasslands but no repair facilities or money to pay. A man dressed like a cowboy may have artificial organs and a revolver, or own a space station and need to pick up advanced medicines or even transfer a herd of cows. “Serenity” flies between the Core worlds of advanced technology and the newly terraformed Rim worlds, where people are grateful to have a wooden roof overhead.

It is this peculiar mix of the old and new that fascinates those looking for the unexpected: the comically serious and the deadly comical. Any given episode will shift you from adventure to terror, farce to drama, slapstick to deep thought and a sense of “boy, I didn’t see THAT coming” without a sense that no-one is at the wheel, or that the screenwriter is merely playing with your expectations. More importantly, there are no “cheats”: every action more deeply reveals the characters and who they are becoming. Unlike the broadcasts, this DVD shows the episodes, including three new ones, in their intended order.

“Firefly” is seldom what it first appears to be, either in terms of appearance or behaviour. No plot works out as expected, and people can surprise you. Joss Whedon indicated that “Buffy” was about growing up, “Angel” is about getting to work and “Firefly” is about being grown up and the choices you have to make as an adult. It’s not like any other show you’ve seen: a story of the nine people who find themselves on board a ship, looking into the black of space, and seeing nine different things looking back at them.

Even if you’ve seen all the first season episodes broadcast on FOX and are waiting for the forthcoming 2005 Universal motion picture, this DVD has all episodes to date, including the three not previously broadcast in the U.S., and such extras as cast and creator commentaries, a blooper reel to equal any other show in history and a few other easter eggs here and there.

Like such great television shows as “Hill Street Blues”, “Babylon 5”, “Homicide: Life on the Streets” or “The Supranos”, this will introduce you to people and places that will enrich you and your concept of the world. I still hate television. I’m buying this DVD.

Firefly was a show that came on the heels of Fox’s usual brilliant decision-making–right after it cancelled my beloved Dark Angel. I first thought this show would be awful, but I sat down and watched it–and it was love. Truly. It’s rare to find a show that can be taken seriously that also made me laugh out loud in every episode. The writing was extraordinary, and the actors/actresses were absolute gold. It was really like watching a movie each time around. Yet again, Fox shot itself in the foot and iced another good show. Nonetheless, at least the DVD is soon to come. At least they had the decency to do that. Come on, sing it with me: “Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. But I don’t care–I’m still free. You can’t take the skies from me…”

Let me preface this by saying that I rarely watch television anymore. The worst book ever published is a thousand times better than the best tv show left on the air… With the possible exception of Joan of Arcadia. Even that’s not enough of a draw to keep me home on a Friday night though. And reality tv… Pheh…

But Firefly…

There was a time when Friday nights were reserved for tv time. Picture me, on the floor in front of the tv, begging my kids to play somewhere else… Plleeeeeeaase! It’s only on once a week! And then the theme song begins… It’s got a bit of a twang… fiddles… And then the words, the spirit. You instantly know what the show’s going to be about. It’s the American Dream. No… Not the new one about living like Trump in a palace seemingly miles above Manhattan… The real American Dream The one that brought our ancestors. It’s about living free, room to stretch out and breathe, self reliance, and self determination. Would a simple television show dare to reach so far?

Firefly dared that and more, bringing the dream to the very stars. Along for the ride are some of the most complex and original characters ever seen in cookie-cutter-land. Then Fox, in true ratings-dazed fashion, lassoed the dream and pulled it down.

If you’ve ever dreamed of open-spaces, open-minds, and a life lived not without danger but without fear, you must own this collection. You must.

I’d never heard of this show until I noticed the customer reviews while browsing through Amazon.com … The response was so overwhelming that I HAD to check it out. It is without a doubt the best series I’ve ever seen. I was completely absorbed by the stories and characters, and watched the entire series in one sitting – I just couldn’t stop. I hope another station picks up on this great show and carries it forward!! (and I can hardly wait to see the movie!!!)

Fox has had its share of failed shows in the past years. This is to say nothing of their chronic ability to underadvertise and pre-empt their best programming in lieu of sporting events and mindless programming.

How Joss Whedon’s Firefly managed to get a prime-time Friday night slot on Fox is beyond me. It was smartly written, well directed, extremely well cast and for its short-run had enough sub plots to keep you watching week after week. Firefly is, hands down, one of the best shows that Fox has ever aired. Why they relentlessly under-promoted this well-viewed show may never be known.

It is my sincere hope that now that Buffy is gone, Whedon manages to find another network that will pick up Firefly. It is too good to die.
