This is an amazing sci-fi tv-series with smart stories and great acting. If you like any of Joss Whedon's other work, you'll love this. I've watched it 3 times!

Vastly superior to any other sci fi tv fare and yet it only lasted one season. Recommended for the quality of the cast and the production-special effects are ala Dr. Who but the story line carries the episodes despite the sometime cheesy special effects. Capt. Kirk got cancelled once too but then got resurrected thanks to strong studio support, alas Serenity had no white knight. Our loss.

This has been recommended to me over and over through the years and I'm not sure why I never checked it out but I'm going to put this one under "Better Late than Never" - This is a great series... works on every level - action, humor, great characters, witty banter, intriguing relationships and a unique blending of the western/sci-fi genres - Now I will join the legions of people disappointed in its quick cancellation!

The Firefly series ran for only 14 episodes in 2002-3,
but there is a movie "Serenity", released in 2005,
that provides more ending to the series,
which was canceled very abruptly:

Love this and will always love to see it that one more time I always tell myself. Browncoats Forever!

Great Sci-Fi/Western Fun! I can't believe it was cancelled after one short season (way to go, Fox). "Extant" has more episodes; so sad. Everyone was very good and also very young! Especially Nathan, Morena & Summer. I loved the actress who played Kaylee, and Baldwin is always fun. And what a young backside on Castle. Well worth watching.

A cult classic! You must watch this if a) you love Joss Whedon, b) you are a big fan of sci-fi, and c) you enjoy creative alternative futures.

Best show in the 'verse, hands down.

The absolute Best show ever. This was the first Whedon show I watched & now I hope that he never dies. There is no way to describe this show which can possibly explain how Amazing this is. The most superb writing, perfectly cast actors, brilliant characters. It's a Space Western, in the best possible way.

one of my favourite shows of all time. think mashing a western with sci-fi and throwing in dashes of humour, romance, and the usual marks of a great joss whedon classic. watch this entire series before watching the follow up movie, Serenity.

Other: Some of the coarse language is in Chinese, the show is 99.9% in English. There are little bits of Chinese here and there (hardly noticeable) because 500 years from now Joss Whedon felt that the Americans and Chinese (because of population/world power) would be the reigning superpowers so those would be considered the 2 main languages.

Coarse Language: most is in Chinese but there are occasionally some in English too

Sexual Content: one of the main characters is a "companion" . There is some partial nudity as well.

Violence: alllllll the time (but usually not gory)
