DVD Review: Firefly

From the firefly, a red orange glow,
See the face of fear, Running scared in the valley below… (U2)

"You got a job, we can do it, don't much care what it is."
- Captain Malcolm Reynolds

This is a thing of rare beauty; Buffy creator Joss Whedon’s TV space opera is a fantastic blend of sci-fi with a look and feel straight out of a Western. Yes I know many series set in space are homages to Westerns on some level, but Firefly makes the theme much more explicit. The action takes place 500 years in the future, following the crew of Serenity, a small run-down cargo ship, as they travel the galaxy looking for work, both legal and otherwise.

I’ve recently re-found this wonderful series on DVD and am completely in love with it…

And the good news is that this year sees a big screen outing in ‘Serenity’ for the Firefly crew,
as Capt. Reynolds says in the trailer: Violence is going to ensue!


Darkmatt Rating: ööööö (excllent)

Gotta love this show. Can't wait until Oct. We're already planning on emailing the loval cinema to ensure it gets into screen 17 (thats the biggest screen they got)
