Firefly - SOLC 29

Obsession.  Firefly is one of my obsessions.  It is an amazing TV show that was so stupidly cancelled after only twelve episodes.  They still had three other episodes finished that they never aired.  It is such a shame and I mourned its loss.  Fans of the show effortlessly attempted to get the show moved to another network but it didn't happen.  The fans did put up enough of a fuss to get a movie out of it.  Now, the short series with the unaired episodes is on DVD for my continued enjoyment.  The movie inspired by the series is also on DVD.  

The series portrayed an outlawed crew flying through space continuing to rebel against the Alliance.  This was the superpower control group that governed the Allied Planets.  There were nine crewmen on the "Serenity" which was the name of the firefly class ship that was home to the crew.  The world was created with the premise that China and the United States were the last to controlling nations so therefor everyone in the future worlds spoke a mix of English and Chinese.  This of course made for some hilarious moments on the show.  

The humor mixed into the future worlds that were sometimes stuck in the past made for a great show where anything could happen and it often did.  A friend got me addicted and I got my family addicted and now I encourage you to check it out.  Even Dr. Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory liked the show.  :D

Enjoy some of my favorite quotes from the Series and Movie.  

Mal: "Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill 'em right back!"

Wash: "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

Mal to Jayne: "Well, my time of not taking you seriously is coming to a middle."

Jayne: "You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with 'til ya understand who's in ruttin' command here." 


  1. I have not seen the show, but I enjoyed reading the quotes. My favorite is "Well, my time of not taking you seriously is coming to a middle." Now, I need to ask my son if he watched this show. It sounds like it's right up his alley.

  2. I can honestly say that I have never even heard of this show, but I liked your summary. I like your enthusiasm and persuasive manner to encourage others to join the Firefly Phenom!
