tmntlover🐢 - Love it
Oh man, this is the greatest show ever!!! Firefly gives us such heart and soul in to every episode I finished the series in less than a month it is absolutely perfect!!!❤️
Pinxit987654321 - Best sci-fi ever made for television bar NONE!
I didn’t even watch this show until it was cancelled because of the lousy advertising they did for it, and because they took off Dark Angel to bring it in (which was my favorite show at the time) so I was mad. Then for lack of anything else to watch I started watching when they re-aired it. I was hooked immediately. The characters, the dialogue, the little bits of Chinese. Just everything was so good that I have watched those shows so many times I can tell you where mistakes were made. Still love it today. I have to say that one thing I am so glad that Joss Wheden did not put in this series like in so many other sci-fi is a myriad of aliens in all shapes and sizes. This makes it even more real to me. This was your best show EVER Joss, I think you think so too. OH and kudos for the music, beatuful & haunting, I have downloaded all of that also.
Nickname? Fine. Ishmael. - Shame on Fox for canceling this
The greatest show to only last one season
Ckoehler13 - Give us commentaries!
The DVDs had so many bonus features when will they come to the iTunes release?
Doktor Malifiko - Sci-fi At It's Best
Type the name of this series or any of it's principles into any search engine, and you'll be astounded by the sheer volume of fan created content and tributes. There is a good reason for that. Simply put, this is a unique and fresh take on the standard starship dramedy. Take the time to watch and thank yourself for it later.
ebhutc - Firefly
The best show ever. The perfect season! The perfect movie! 700 million thumbs up!!!
MDD45 - Plain Silly
This show is like taking scifi and western genres, putting them into a bottle, and shaking them up. You have a gunslinging protagonist who flies spaceships and goes horseback riding. A major adversary of the show (reavers or whatever they're called) sounds like they were just made up on the spot.
USPrivateer - Cancelled!?
You often have to wonder at the stupidity of others. Like an idiot, I never bothered to check how many seasons were available of this show. When I realized that there was only 1 season, after getting half way through, I was literally blown away at the stupidity of 20th Century. This was easily the best show I've ever seen. I've shown Firefly to friends that totally hate any and all things sci-fi, and they loved it. I mean completly adored it. What a terrible shame that this show wasn't continued.
Joebean4jp - Favorite
One of my favorite shows of all time. I challenge anyone to watch the entire series and not fall in love.
WaltjB - Brilliant!
Fantastic series! I found it after it was canceled but faught for its resurrection.
Brilliant work. You found fans all over the wold eager to see new worlds of fantasy and Science Fiction. Although Firefly only had one season, it remains growing in the imagination of its followers for over a decade later. Thank you Joss Wheedon. Also Joss, if you read this Perhaps you could make us a follow up story?
filmlover1616 - Fantastic
Great science-fiction show!!!!
Seeker1107 - Darned shame
They cut a show that had so much promise but was bungled due to lousy time slot and horrendous marketing. At 9.99 it’s a great price for what you’re getting!
Jasper402 - A great show that should have been longer
This show was amazing. Don’t let its only 1 season fool you, this is a must watch for any space-show lover.
nocrickets - criminal
I agree with the fans. This was some of the best sci-fi on tv in a long time, and that it didn't even get a full season was criminal. Great cast, fully-formed characters you cared about right away, good writing with a nice sense of humor. Yes it had its flaws -- the goram lingo got old quick -- but they were far outweighed by its many good qualities. How cornball crapola like SG-1 and Galactica got to run forever and this didn't get a single full season is one of the great mysteries of the TV universe.
183728375 - Amazing
My favorite TV show. Worth the money.
Kimberlee11 - Greatest show ever
Only Hollywood can jack up like this. One lousy season is all we get. Greatest show ever!
Melanie Falsepercy - Best TV Series Ever
Why it was cancelled is beyond me. Of course this is FOX we are talking about, that bastion of intellect and taste.
Da-shiang bao-tza shr duh lah doo-tze!
ggyvgieixmo - Mhm and he. came
I guess I'll fix n they have y
abellon - One of the best shows that never was
If you are looking for solid storytelling, engaging characters, and a good time with a bowl of popcorn, Firefly delivers. Be warned, it comes with a price.
As the third series written, produced, and directed (often) by nerd fanboy Joss Weadon (Buffy, Angel, Marvel's Agents of Shield, Marvel's the Avengers, Alien Resurrection, Cabin in the Woods...), this is the heartfelt project that created a cult following, launched a movie, and leaves you wanting more.
Once you are in, you're hooked, and if you are hooked, you're a Browncoat.
SoundwaveIDW - Best Show ever Canceled!
FOX. Nuff said. But really this was a great show.
They need to bring the Verse back in some way shape or form. This was the Trek for A new era in TV and may have sad to say been ahead of its time. Great Chemistry between the actors. Awesome visuals. Great story telling.
dddgry - Great show but...
Great show but it only checked off 4 episodes as watched. Making it difficult to figure out what episode I was on.
MATTx805 - One of the best shows ever...
I absolutely loved this show. Great cast, great setting, great stories and hilarious. Broke my heart when they didn't continue. See for yourself.
XMigiX - Greatest tv show ever!
Please continue this series! Anyone
SWRhudy - Perfection
If only we could get more of this...would be a dream come true
zazow# - Awesomeness!
Definitely worth the watch.
KDElinux - Great show
Love this show. Will watch it over and over again
orbitalpunk - Someone needs to bring this show back
One of the best sci-fi television shows ever created and a huge opportunity is being missed here.
spanishmackerel - bring it back
love the show and movie. need to bring it back.
BardicChick - Take my show, take my crew...
I cannot say just how addicted I am to Firefly and Serenity. The theme follows me everywhere as I aim to misbehave.
AstroDogMax - Firefly is solid
The originality of the literal Western-meets-space motif, the snappy dialog, the richly diverse set of characters, the chemistry between the actors, and Serenity herself make this one of the best sci-fi TV series of all time. My favorite episodes, in proper order of viewing: Serenity, Shindig, Out of Gas, Ariel, War Stories, and Objects in Space. Out of Gas and Objects in Space are two of the best episodes of TV every produced. Seriously, they’re beautiful. Favorite lines: “Mr. Reynolds? You died, Mr. Reynolds.—Seemed like the thing to do.—When you die I can’t hurt you anymore, and I want two days at least, minimum.” As Niska would put it, the reputation of Firefly is “solid;” I just wish “business was still running.”
infinityends - Simply The Best!
What a travesty this show was canceled when so much dribble drones on and on for years...
Absolutley great show, great characters, stories....just very well done. Definitely worth the money. Quite simply one of the very best shows ever on TV!!
Horntron - #the best
This show is probably the best tv show ever invented, though i wouldn't recommend watching it because it is so good that it left me un-satisfied when the one season ended. STILL THE BEST TV SHOW EVER INVETED
The Prepper2016 - Best science fiction series of all time
Firefly is unique there's never been anything like it and there never will be I'm a huge science fan and firefly is my favorite science fiction universe of all time I never was in to Star Trek and although I like Star Wars I think it's way overrated and the new movie is garbage firefly blows them all away even though there's only one season the quality of that one season is epic amazing characters and acting deep character development every episode is packed with drama humor and brilliant acting the show makes you laugh and be on the edge of your seat at the same time firefly is not about big space battles or political intrigue it's about people just trying to survive and get by in a bad situation firefly will get you hooked and never let you go instead of watching the new Star Wars trash watch firefly I guarantee it will be worth it also watch the movie serenity with brings a great ending to the show
MoodyRose79 - Best Show!
Space Cowboys done right.
Jmsm - The best SyFy
Colonel Guido - One of the best shows I have ever seen
I wasn't much into sci fi when I was introduced to this show. After watching the first, and only season 😞, 20 or 30 times I have realized that I am still holding out for this shows resurrection several years later. It is so much fun and one day I hope to hear the intro on a new episode
digibruce - A rare thing of surpassing beauty
It's 2002 and I hear "Joss Whedon is making a space western called Firefly". Whoah, that is Relevant to My Interests. Fox shows it, out of order, in the Friday Night Death Slot before the execrable Miami Vice rip-off Fastlane. It seems like half the time it would be preempted by baseball games. And then they cancel it mid-season after only 14 episodes.
Thirteen years later, those episodes remain, collectively, one of the greatest pieces of filmed entertainment ever. After more than a decade of fantastic television in every genre, from Battlestar Galactica to The Wire to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Firefly has lost none of its luster. Even Serenity, its cinematic coda, seems more mockery than homage, loud where Firefly was quiet, harsh where Firefly was luminous, rushed where Firefly was languid.
Many reviewers have noted the Firefly's great writing, realism, and amazing characters played with total commitment by an amazing ensemble of actors. All this praise is true. But for me, the magic of Firefly is that every second of its running time is full of indefinable wonder, crafted with intense dedication and joy. Its greatest moments are when nothing at all is happening. For a show that delves so deeply into the human condition, that is hilarious and poignant, that provides such rousing, effortless action, set in a wholly believable future world, that's saying a lot.
Joshuarivera - Lives up to the hype
For a few years I was pestered about watching the show. Just this year I gave in, and I fell in love with it. The cast is wonderful. Watch it!
Mike T (Colorado) - One of The Very Best TV Shows - Ever!
Perhaps the best written show of all time. Two former soldiers of the losing side of civil war; a pacifist pilot, an insecure mechanical-genius lady, a soldier-of-fortune, a top geisha-type as the love-interest; a Preacher, and a brother-and-sister pair of fugitives escaping the totalitarian government. All in a cargo ship trying to avoid conflict and occasionally engaging in crime to pay the bills. Western theme, English mixed with gutter Chinese and terrific dialogue.
I am extremely tough on TV shows and was amazed that this one became a favorite. One of the funniest lines of all time is in one episode (the gag line is ‘Public Relations’).
cybermansa1 - Best Sci-fi Show
I have to agree with everyone on here. This was a great show that I can't believe was canceled after 1 season. Sadly I also can't believe it's taken me this long to finally watch it. After 1st episode I was hooked.
Today's duck - A masterpiece
Joss weeden really outdid himself as firefly is wacky in just the right way. This show was the only way to keep me sane on are 16 hour trip to California. If you haven't watched it already, buy the full version. Whale your at it, checkout serenity, the movie continues the tv show. All great.
John'song - U gotta see this series... Luv it
I stumbled on this series and sure do wish the Browncoats were still active today. Not your "usual" sci-fi... no aliens! Old western dialect and, at times, made up language spoken characters. Plots are sequential and build well, no inconsistencies. Character development is high from the start. Wiritng and dry humor reigns; excellent writing. Like these guys were BORN to play these roles! Would someone PLEASE do antoher (Serenity 2) movie!!??
BonoDad - Castle & Suits
When these were recently run on Sci-HD, I DVRed them because I saw that Nathan Fillion and Gina Torres were on the show. I love Nathan in Castle and Gina in Suits, so I liked seeing them in the earlier acting careers. THEN I got hooked on Firefly!! I’ve been binge watching all the episodes. And after reading many of these post, I thank all you Browncoats for telling me the correct order to watch the episodes. And Wow, there’s a movie called Serenity, too. I hope I can still find it! …..gotta get back to watching it now!!
Twisted_icats - I’ll be in my bunk…watching this again and again
I am sad to say it took a fair amount of convincing to get me to watch this series, mainly because I’m stubborn and I didn’t want to give in to all the peer pressure. So I did what any self-respecting non-conformist would do, and I watched it when the world was sleeping and no one could point fingers. I should have known not to doubt. Joss Whedon hasn’t let me down yet, and this was no different.
The universe that Whedon creates is not at all like the perfect future that Star Trek TNG gives us (which I also love so don’t think I’m hating). It is a realistic glimpse of a harsh reality that seems far more probable than a time of self actualization and peace. From a blending of cultures (I love that in this future the Asian culture has surpassed all others creating an amazing mixture of english and Mandarin) to an assortment of worlds, each with their own little quirks and problems, the universe Firefly has to offer is beautifully diverse without a single alien in sight (not that I have problems with aliens, its just adds to the realism of this show). Whedon does a fantastic job of digging into the personalities of people struggling to live in a universe that is anything but fair and just. Far from the predictable, Firefly runs the gambit emotions, making you laugh one minute and cringe the next. It is a test of character where you go beyond the simplicity of good vs bad and dig into the grittier elements of life where the answer doesn’t always mean everyone is happy at the end. The characters are full of life (including the villains), all with stories of their own, and every encounter is packed with potential. So if you’re looking for something to enjoy on your own, or share with the family, Firefly is definitely the way to go.
jadetorchwood - One of the best sci-fi shows out there.
As a big fan of Joss Whedon's Avengers movie, I had to check out Firefly. I'm glad that I did. After watching the show, I can see why people love this show. It does a great job combing both the science fiction and Western genres. Firefly has a great and diverse cast of characters. The use of Chinese in place of swearing adds more to the character of the show. Fox made a mistake cancelling Firefly along with airing episodes out of order. It had a lot of potential of being on the same level as the Star Trek franchise and Battlestar Galactica (2004 remake series). Firefly is a must watch tv series if you're a fan of science fiction, Westerns, or Joss Whedon.
Roorty Man - Witty Title For Review
Very few shows have the ability to bring me back and watch repeatedly every 8 months or so.... This series is among them. The show is simply put, like the finest of wines. It gets better with time. I'm not saying you should buy it here, however, it truly is worthy of purchase. Give it time and it shall treat you well.
Gtolevi - One of, if not the best tv series ever
I've watched the movie Serenity a couple times over the past few years and absolutely loved it. Always meant to watch the series and then I finally remembered and picked up the series recently. I can't believe I've missed out on this amazing series for so long. It is definitely one of the best tv series of all time and is absolutely worth watching. I've always wondered why did they cancel the show...why is there not a season 2. What happened to such an amazing show? In a way I'm kind of glad that I waited so long to finally watch these recently. It was an awesome experience to finally be able to watch and enjoy this incredibly touching series for the first time
Kravist13 - STEAMPUNK SPACE COWBOYS
When FOX pulled the trigger on FF the Browncoats may have been on the losing side, but we're still not convinced it was the wrong one. Bear with me, this is the only show that has ever inspired me to write a review, so this is my Battle of Serenity Valley, if you will.
One of the things I really love about this series is the lack of the crazy alien war machine galactic dominance creatures. It's what Stephen Hawking has always said. At some point we will use up all the resources of our planet, and be forced to move on from no other option. It's in the future but the same problems still exist. There are castes of people from the wealthy and entitled who live in cities with all the latest technology, colonists who immigrate to new planets and are starting with almost nothing, and crime and politics are throughout the 'verse.
It's a shame the plug was pulled on this series with less than a full season to really establish itself. This was a rare show that truly had the chance to not only exist in almost any era they wanted, but where it also made sense. They could (and did) have episodes that were a throwback to old westerns with lawmen and outlaws on horses, to car chases with hyperdrives and laser shootouts.
I'd love to see a reloaded version of Firefly and see where they could take it. The world exists, but I have to admit, it would be difficult to replicate again. The original casting was excellent which was critical to what made this show so much fun. Pulling that off again with a whole new set of actors would be like throwing a dart and hitting a bullseye 6,000 miles away.
Darthgreen - 5 Stars isn't enough.
There is not a scale to describe how much I love this show. There is also not one that can describe my disbelief that any sane person could give the order to cancel this television masterpiece. You will never get tired of watching Firefly.
Chief striker - If only there were more episodes....
This is hands down one of the best shows I have watched. I immediately fell in love with the characters. The writing is excellent! You will laugh out loud, and even shed a tear or two. Well worth every penny!

This is such a well done series. Can’t believe this is the first time I’ve watched it. It’s basically a western in space. Very sad they didn’t make anymore seasons!
a assassin's creed fan - Loved this
I was so disappointed when the series was cancelled, it broke me in half. Firefly deserves so much more love.
Blindcell - Great Show
Well done. The stories stay true to each other. Very well done...
Un-Muggle - love it!
this is an amazing show and i love it soo much. i’m so disappointed that they cancelled it cause it would have been a super big hit, but it’s still great anyway. all in all, i give it a 10/10. :)
Blithe Unconcern - Shiny!
One of the best shows ever made, it just wasn’t given a fair shake by the network...
Lee-Sah - Best Sci-fi ever
I love this show with all my heart
Hazycloud82 - Best Show that Fox TV Murdered
If you haven’t watched this, don’t! You’ll spend the rest of your life questioning the decisions of a few old fools who thought to pull the show before it was given a chance to develop. Seriously, RUN AWAY!
LilDagnamet - Another Great Show killed of by Idiots
Add this show to the long list of shows killed by those idiots who give us great shows just so they can take them away before it is the shows time. Firefly was a great show that was just starting out and had the potential to become even greater. Its short lived life is a shame.
halonerdo89 - One of the best Sci-Fi TV series
One of the best science fiction TV series I have ever watched! Cancelled after fourteen episodes, but it was a huge shame! I wish it could make a comeback. Hilarious space action, romance, and gun fights!
lestatoloves - An instant classic.
This show was an instant classic! They only episode I remember thinking was just ok was “The Train Job” the rest were brilliant in my opinion. I loved these characters! I don’t believe in conspiracy theories but I believe this show was too smart for TV.
missjanalt - Most Quotable Show Ever
My favourite show, hands down. I loved the cast, the writing, the cast... every episode was amazingly well done. The way the characters pull you into the story and make you wish there was more... much, much more. Most memorable is the humour. And it only gets better with re-watching.
Mal: Fully loaded, safety off. This here is a recipe for unpleasantness, does she understand that?
River: She understands, she doesn't comprehend.
Mal: Well I'm glad we've made that distinction. No touching guns!
TAJ - 00053637000u2 - (TEN) OUT OF FIVE STARS
Firefly is an outstanding series that, at the very beginning when first seeing it, those of us who love it now, recognized it qualities and loved it instantly then. It is a wonderful mix of science, excitement, and humour. Though I've watched the series over and over - I seem never to tire of the complexity of the characters. Each of them have truly human characteristics, the mix of these develops each of them to be plausible and loveable and a wonderful team. You might think that with all this compatibility there could be no friction, but wonderfully, there is enough friction to create balance.
Firefly mixes recognizable past and character types with the greatly distant future as well. Without the aid of ridiculous prosthesis' the show assembles an absolutely wonderful combination of plot, characters, action, adventure, comedy, intrigue, and suspense.
FIREFLY is what Star Trek might have been if it hadn't the breaks to cause it to become the legacy it's become.
FIREFLY IS FULLY WORTHY OF MY RATING OF (TEN) OUT OF FIVE STARS.
Christoph Loewen - One of the very best SciFi series out there - Gone too Early!
This is arguably one of the very best SciFi series made!
Picked up steam, got going and then the idiot network jerks stole it from the fans. Gone well before its time!
Watch it, buy it! Shiny!
Britepencil - This should be a Netflix original series
Netflix shoudl buy the4 righbts ot this and develop a second series obviously the actors woud need ot be changed or somehow integrate the the originals
NoisePollution - Still my #1
Perfect balance of characters. Wonderfully written, witty and funny. Every character feels well rounded, and interact brilliantly with one another. The universe Joss Whedon created was ripe with story possibilities.
Palal1984 - Shiny!
Probably my favorite show of all time. Short lived as it was Firefly has earned a place in the hearts of many, forever. Keep flying!
Sir Hemingsworth III - A Must Have
Everyone, we must head to wherever FOX hides from the world and retake firefly from their pit of shows that they don't like(but everyone else does). And yes, bring grenades.
C'monDance - Simply one of the best shows!
Can't think of a show I've enjoyed more in a long time. Joss Whedon had a huge winner with this one! Too bad they never had the chance to promote & expand this series better. I would love more adventures with Mal, Jayne, Kaylee, Simon, Wash, Zoe, Inara, etc!
Lenc0 - Excellent tv
What television should be. Rich characters and great stories. A must see series.
ChilledEuphoria - Shiny!
Excellent character driven series that should have had a much longer run.
I want to live in a world where Studio Execs get it. This is a brief glimpse of that world.
CatherineGrant - Awesome
Cancelling this show was quite possibly the biggest blunder in television history. Space cowboys. Come On.
JulesK17 - Fantastic show!
This show is classic Joss Whedon - excellent writing, well-cast, ingenious premise, and witty writing. The actors are phenomenal. It's too bad it was cancelled well before its time. The movie "Serenity" and allusions to it in Nathan Fillion's new show, Castle, help dull the pain. This is definitely worth checking out and becoming a brown coat!
Bubblez122666 - Best show ever
I love this show I cried when I learned there were only 14 episodes they stop a great thing just as it started up if you haven't seen this show its a shame because no matter who you are this will impact how you think and then in the end you will think of your self as a "brown coat" it's just so amazing It needs more seasons
Syl TR - Good, super good
This series has, oups had, everything to become a hit and a potential cult series. I will miss the neveu to be seen seasons 2 and beyond.
Svjatovid780 - Why this seams real?
Do you remember original star wars, they seamed real as well. Only because of one guy, harison ford. He was normal guy who used technology, and wouldn't care less for spaceships or "one force that controls everything". That's why this show is so good, they just use technology available and don't care less if that is a keyboard or abacus as long it gets job done.
The real question is what kind of abacus stopped this after one season.
valar - A future that seems real.
Maybe our world will be just like the one in Firefly. The world in this story are so real that you could touch it with your bare hands, so does the characters. After Japanese anime Cowboy Bebop, I have been looking for a similar show until I found Firefly. Try it, you will love the stories and humor. It is bad it was cancelled after first season, but who knows, maybe that is the good thing----make it a masterpiece.
BarryCanada - The Standard!
Well written. Well casted. Great production quality. Great action with a good balance of wit and humour. One of the best productions I've seen! There needs to be more seasons!!!!!
KevinH01 - My favourite series of all time
I want more. If there is any way to resurect the Firefly universe, please give me more.
Cations - Wow! Amazing first episode
I just watched the first episode Serenity and it was brilliant.
Very intelligent story writing. It's fast paced and just great sci-fi.
Will reward myself with another episode tomorrow.
We have to bring this show back.
Schmange Music - Awesome!!
From the set design, to the writing, the directing, the acting... TV at it's finest.
Mckay221 - I love it but is that it?
i am new to the series but i have seen the movie it was great so why would they cancle it after 1 season i mean at least give it 3 seasons before you kill it!
Lancinator13 - Another great show murdered before it's time!
Firefly was a fascinating idea - an ensemble cast existing on the ragged edge, forced to take almost any job that comes along to make it by. FOX, who just killed the terrific "Sarah Connor Chronicles", jumped this one all over the schedualling map, showed the episodes out of order and managed to kill it after one short season. The acting is great, the humour and the drama is expertly done, and any time I watch an episode, it makes me sad for what might have been. I still howl with laughter every time I watch "Jaynestown" and "Our Mrs. Reynolds" ("Whoa. Good bible.") and feel the nervous tension in "Ariel" and "War Stories". Great show. Highly recommended.
Morbo of Ottawa - A great Series
This is one of the best series ever done on television. Naturally, it was cut after one season. This is the pre-story to the movie "Serenity".
NO TOUCHING GUNS!
LiquidHawk - One of the best shows ever, highly underrated + deserved to last more than 1 season.
I love everything about this show. It's probably my favourite of Joss Whedon's shows. Too bad that it got cancelled so early, it deserved so much better. The best episodes, IMO, Objects in Space, Out of Gas, Serenity, War Stories, Ariel, and Our Mrs. Reynolds. The Serenity movie is also full of greatness. Now Apple just needs to put the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel shows on the Canadian ITunes store, and all of Joss Whedon's shows will be covered.
Warpass - one of the best sci-fi storys ever written
Awesome show, exciting, funny, sexy has it all. Great writing too.
BlackDeathMetalGod - Brilliant!
Utterly brilliant Sci-Fi/Western tv series.
Iwishitdisntwastemytime - Why...
My boyfriend recently introduced me to this show as we have similar taste in TV series and I’d never heard of it.
We began watching and I was hooked. The stories, the character arcs and development. The chemistry of the actors. The wit and Sophistication of the humour. It’s a real winner.
However, he gave me no indication of the length of the series and it wasn’t until watching the final episode I was told “that was it” ...
What a waste of an incredible show, cast, idea. So progressive and courageous in its presentation of social issues.
If you look up the circumstances by which this show was aired (e.g. episodes out of order), the politics between the production team and Fox studios, the show’s allocated airing during dead air time, and the quick judgement to cut the series despite knowledge that multiple hit series (i.e. Game of Thrones) don’t develop major ratings and support until approximately mid-season 2... this initially seven season masterpiece was just another wasted opportunity having been represented by the constant blundering and screw ups of Fox studios.
Long live the Firefly.
chrisan-aus - Just fantastic
A perfect sci-fi.
she creature - why ?
why was this cancelled ??
RedEyeJedi1979 - Best Show Ever!
I now have Firefly, on the fly!
willow1864 - mr
this not the complete series there is a season two i don’t know why they are saying this is the complete series I’ve seen eps that ain’t on this.
Evan Rex - Firefly is simply better than the rest..
I have watched shows that ran for 5 plus seasons that don’t hold a flame to this show, so the reason for cancelation must have been a good one, or politics. I would recommend this show to any sci-fi fan and to get closure go to the Serenity Movie (yes the movie has a few incongruities relating to the series, sill good all the same).
Wulfrunian Pom - Top show
Don't often feel compelled to review much, but cancelling this series was a real mistake. Let's hope the powers that be review that decision. Knocks the socks of the script-by the numbers genre that is coming out now.
dittogirl - ok
Wish it was on longer but it is a good series. worth watching :)
ampore2015 - What a gem
Just stumbled across this series on the net during some down time…. Where have I been? Thoroughly captivated by the story telling… Cant believe there is only 14 episodes and a movie which was made over 9yrs ago. Hopefully other people not aware of this show discover this gem and maybe, just maybe, more episodes are made to satisfy this need to know more about the crew…. Wishful thinking :’-(
AggiePL - Quotable classic
In my opinion one of the best series/movies (Serenity) ever made!!! My all time favorite - it's been over 10 years and it still often plays on a loop on my laptop. Funny, creative, unpredictable, superb acting, makes dialog a true art form, simply brilliant.
Sudsywolf - Benchmark for gripping shows!
To put it as bluntly and direct as possible, this is one of the best short-lived shows in existence. If you have never experienced Joss Whedon's sci-if opus Firefly, you owe it to yourself to do so. Gripping characters, intriguing mysteries and fantastic scriptwriting go together to form a journey you won't soon forget. You may even find yourself wishing you could live on the spaceship Serenity itself.
Ryleigh B - Pure shiney brilliance
Ah Joss you have done it again, first with Buffy n Angel and again with this shiney series firefly, FOX must have been delusional when they canned this, we will have a Season 2 and a Serenity II
Hana-san101 - One of the best sci-fi shows out there
This is simply the best sci-fi series that I have ever watched. It's humorous and gripping. Every episode has you wanting more. So sad that it ended after only one series though.
Hello272 - :'(
Great show but why is it $48?
Frances_2012 - Great
Worth the purchase!
Ashkente - Great, but. Watch out for download bugs
Great series. Unfortunately there are unexpected errors and serious bugs in Shindig and Our Mrs Renyolds epps. This has cost me a huge bill in my failed attempts to download these epps, as it has also caused problems with my computer. A refund and payment of a large part of my associated download bill would be welcome, as well as bug free epps, so I can complete the series. Make it right iTunes.
TRMsnow - Firefly
Great series and would happily watch it again and again.
Shame that iTunes added an extra 'tax' that they still won't explain and won't refund. All I get is a 'please refer' to our legal people. Hopeless.
Stefan Giże - Epic
God of sci-fi, well made even on a low budget and brilliant cross over of sci-fi and western.
Tigerprawn chopper - Great Show
This is an excellent show, with so much potential it is so annoying that it was cancelled by the idiots at FOX.
Check it out & you will see a great show, and it will also make you think where the story could have gone with several series!
Clinton99 - Great series
Loved this show, watched them all after another! and didnt get sick of it... The only downer to this show that left me devastated, was the fact it was axed and doesn't have any more seasons.
Shrillian - Absolutely brilliant
Wish it had not gotten axed.
grover i am so pressed. - WIN
we shall call this land...this land How about we call it your grave fwaahahaha
kokobeanz - Fantastic Series
Soo sad that it was too ahead of it's time when it came out :<
What Serenity after the series :3
You can watch it before but it'll make more sense to watch it after you've watched firefly ;3
Smelly&Stinky - Take my love, take my land.....
Firefly is the best sci-fi show ever invented. i would recommend it to anyone!!! I love the story, it's really clever, and the characters are the best! Serenity(movie) was the perfect way to end such a great series (despite the fact it shouldn't have gone anyway).
Coz_Cat - Didn't deserve what it got.
As can be expected from Joss Whedon, this show is great. The only reason for its downfall is definitely the network; if it weren't for the treatment, the show would probably still be going. If you like Buffy, or you like Castle, or Dollhouse, you'll like Firefly. One of the best shows of recent years.
t-House1211 - Whedonian masterpiece
Sci-fi masterpiece in my opinion. A different take on the future, as well as life.
troy.reynolds - Great series
Firefly is a great series, recommend this to any sci-fi fan. Its unfortunate that the itunes store version is presented in 4:3 instead of 16:9.
Irving Einstein - Firefly - Great Series
Was a huge shame there weren't more episodes made. Great characters - deserved much better treatment. Grab Serenity, the Movie, as well as its really good. Heart of Gold is the highlight episode for me.
Epistaxis Digitorum - Serenity - The Movie
Love the show - and in a first for iTunes, there is a movie for $2.99.
If you look carefully, iTunes is selling the movie 'Serenity' as the first episode of the series, for the princely sum of $2.99.
If you can't afford the whole lot, at leasty buy this 'episode' before they wise up and start charging full price!
Thank you iTunes for bringing us 'Firefly' - absolutely brilliant!
purplepkae - Watch the series first ....
then check out the movie. Firefly the best thing that I have ever seen. Go ahead and treat yourself to a very clever and intelligent viewing experience. Oh to have had a second season.
Fizwidget - Doesn't live up to the hype
After hearing all the hype about this show, I decided I'd better watch it. In my opinion, some of the acting was terrible. Many of the storylines were also plain silly. In short, it doesn't live up to the hype. I can see why it was cancelled after only 14 episodes.
Think carefully before you buy.
Crimson Fox - Should have Continued
This was one of the best series ever created. It's very sad that it was taken away before it's time.
Patty MacDaddy - The Single Greatest Sci-Fi TV Show!!
This show is sooo original and yet it follows the principals that have been set down by the generations of science fiction before it. The movie is ACE as well, when will iTunes bring it in to its library?
Salvo Dan - Great Show, but buy the DVDs instead.
Firefly is easily one of the very best TV Shows of the last 20 years.
I was very excited about Firefly being available in iTunes. I can legitimately have my own copy for my iPod Touch without resorting to Ripping my DVDs.
Unfortunately, (at time of review) the episodes are presented as a Pan-and-Scan of the original 16:9 Widescreen series. There are no Closed Captions or Commentary Tracks and for the same price you can get the DVDs with unmissable Bonus Features.
Killjoy6 - Serenity the movie
they made a movie with all the same characters and its really good its like a season 2 to Firefly. Its called serenity.
Andrijana - Greedy Fox
Firefly is my favourite show of all time. Sad it got cancelled after 1 season due to 'financial' reasons so is said due to 20th Fox studios. This show is a must buy for anyone who is a fan of Angel or Buffy. You won't regret buying it it will make you laugh and cry and leave you wanting more.
NigelWadsworth - Great show!
Loved this show, I almost watched them all back to back. Pity I've already bought the dvd set (for twice the price of iTunes).
Mathew Frank - one of the best shows I've seen
The only thing that killed this show was the studio. Intelligent, witty, and has heart. The show sticks in your mind in a way that most current movies/shows do not. This is the sort of experience that I go to the movies to see, but rarely get delivered.
Ejm124 - Sci-fi gold
When you see this you ask the same question every other sane person has said before...How could they cancel this so early ? really is worth watching. it has a great cast and is well written
kennyf93 - Firefly
I really loved this to show I wish there was more seasons.

RhysWilliams1 - Soooo good!
So good I actually named our daughter after one of the characters (we liked the name Inara - my wife had not actually seen the show at that point)!!! If only all TV was so enjoyable, I watched this when it was first made and can’t believe they axed it. Damn you Joss Whedon for creating such a great Tv show! No seriously thank you, I just wish firefly had as many seasons as Buffy!
NiktheRussian1045 - Simply the Best
watched them all on a beach in Myanmar. couldnt believe no 2nd series. great storylines,brilliant humour,balance of charcters is perfect and like any good story it pulls you in so that you want more. Such a shame that there is none to be. One that got away!
Tele-Addict - More,more,more
I would love to see this series refreshed. Maybe Disney will be able to see what Fox could not? This is a real gem and has aged well. Worth a view if you haven’t seen this before. Worth a revisit if you have.
Mote365 - Just Magnificent
What a great series and film. If you’re thinking of watching this, just be prepared to realise you’ll be another one of the hundreds of thousands, probably millions of people, who can’t believe there wasn’t a second series once you finish the first.
Original, witty, great characters, great stories, powerful, fun... and no sound in space (love that bit).
You’ll yearn for a second series...
Duncan23415 - Well, Fox turned out to be goram idiots...
... Firefly didn't Keep Flying. One season, one movie; that's all we got. Oh how the nerd race wrung its hands and sobbed into its pillows! Comicon Q&As and Twitter rumours are all we can look forward to now. Let it go Geeks, it wasn't to be...
Firefly is part of our SciFi heritage, along with Chewbacca, Deckard and Ripley. It's awesome for reasons that are not apparent at first. Slightly hammy and with a curious ability to not take itself too seriously, it very soon finds a place in the heart. The characters are warm and engaging. The plot, though simple, is fun and action packed. A new genre; cowboys, comedy and space long before Daniel Craig turned up.
It is a thing of beauty. Enjoy!
btw I saw this picture on Instagram of Morena Baccarin and she was holding a 2019 script entitled "Beyond Miranda"...
Jgardee - The best sci-fi TV show ever
A gem of a TV series, absolutely crazy that it was cancelled after 1 season. My family and I treasure every episode. Must have for your collection!
JayHsn - A great Sci-fi action series cancelled far too soon, BUY NOW!
Hugely entertaining, a must see for any Sci-fi fan! Then after the series buy Serenity the film, you will see this could have been hugely successful, Great work from Josh Weedon.
formerandroider - Really, Really, Really Good
Honestly, I tried watching this a while back, but couldn't get into the first episode. I just watched the entire series on Netflix in less than a week. It's much better than you might think, and it really didn't deserve to be cancelled. I was only 5 when it was released (although I'm English), and I still like it - despite it being almost as old as me (in terms of TV shows). You really should, at the very least, give it a try... And memorise the theme song... It's really catchy ;)
Praetorias - Perfection
Cannot get better than this short lived half series. Buy it and hate the executives for cancelling the best thing ever on tv.
Mattystar123 - Fun and inventive... Sci-fi at it's best
This was such a brilliant show ... And whilst the film Serenity helped fill some of the gap, I'm still gutted this got cancelled... Numpties!
Baldydafydd - Five star show one star price
iTunes get it right 14 episodes of a cancelled show £10 max
buffercheen - Late to a great party!
I watched the last episode today, can't believe there are no more. Great Sci-fi, great writing, great story, great characters, great actors no trashy ott effects.....brilliant. I have just downloaded the movie and will give that a watch. Please watch this series if you li8ke sci-fi and wonder at how brilliant it is even now after quite a few years!!! Sack whomever cancelled it!
GorramShinyMan - Brilliant
I absolutley adore this series. I'm longing for the news that Fox realize they made a mistake and another series is on the way. As usual on ITunes it way over priced.
niteman69 - The best
This is the best show for a long time and they cancelled it, I think they need to review their thinking or another network should pick it up. We need more firefly
Trusket - League of its own
The best sci-fi series on the telly to date. Period!! Always a tiresome affair asking my girlfriend to endure sci-fi however after her watching the first episode nothin else was allowed on the tv.s
Brown coats for the win :D
Sonic Buu - Completely Faultless.
An outstanding series from an outstanding writer.
shame on the purple bellies who cancelled it, the independent's will rise again!
Evolater - Just amazing
The best show ever.
Arjay-UK - You Can't Take The Sky From Me
More than a decade after first appearing, this is a TV series that is perfection to watch. It still annoys me the way the TV network dismissed this so easily. This is such a timeless show. The characters, and the actors that portray them, make you cry, laugh, scream & cheer. Sometimes even in the same scene. Although I love all episodes (and the subsequent movie), "Out Of Gas" has to be my favourite. It is such a beautiful, perfect episode. If you haven't seen this show; do it now. You will not regret it.
jimjamjemms - Awesome!
How have I only just got around to watching this? I saw the movie in the cinema when it first came out but had no idea about the tv programme. I mistakenly thought the tv series wouldn't be as good as the movie as it only ran for one season but boy was I wrong! This is an awesome sci-fi series which I would urge anyone to see!
Christopher Smith - Supreme
Arguably the best SF show of all time.
Bfr0g - Great show but.....
£24 for standard definition! Your having a laugh.
ComedyPlease - Excellent - off-beat SiFi show
What can I say - thank you Sheldon for bringing this excellent series to my attention. Only stupidity can explain it's cancellation, luckily the film 'Serenity' fills the gaps .
Shovel 69 - Great
I want more!!!!
scurrb77 - Brilliant
As an avid Sci Fi fan this is best thing in years. Cut way before its time. Good story, characters and humour.
Money well spent.
Basilbrush83 - Firefly
The best tv show I have ever had the pleasure to watch, a must watch for any sci fi fan!!
Can't justify £24 when u can buy a box set for £10 (shiny) - come on iTunes what the gorram are you thinking?
Lyster Smeg - Brilliant
theoriginalmadman - Don't ask, just buy!
You will not be disappointed.
LukeBbtt - HOW MUCH?!!!
I love this series. It is one of the best things to grace television. Sadly it had to be cancelled. I really want to add this to my iTunes collection, but when you charge 24 quid for it, that is not going to happen. If you are not going to lower the price, at the very least, throw in the film as well. iTunes needs to sort its prices out!!!
Virtual Llama - One of the best… but Apple rip of the UK market again!
Reviewing the series… this was probably the best new sci-fi series in a long time and if it had been allowed to continue could have developed to rival the greats such as Star Trek and Doctor Who. The TV execs who cancelled this should burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre.
As to iTunes… here in the UK we're only offered the SD version at £23.99 whereas in the US version the SD version is considerably cheaper at $21.99 (less than £14) with the HD version at $31.99 (less than £20). I was going to buy this today but this has put me off.
Funny how Serenity seems to be missing from the UK store too.
Chuckneely - You'll probably watch this for the rest of your life
I've lost count of the number of times over the past few years I've been sitting bored in the house and thought "I know, I'll watch Firefly again!".
Joss Whedon at his finest, you'll fall in love with the characters very quickly and each episode tells a fantastic story. Firefly brings light-hearted but compelling sci-fi with some great action scenes and excellent dialog. The character development itself is supurb and you'll feel like you really get to know each individual's personalities, quirks and traits. By the end of the series you'll wish so much that Joss was able to continue making this fantastic programme.
But it, keep it, you won't regret it!
DW3k - Dw3k
Awesome series. Probably the most watched on my iTunes, worth every penny. Just a massive shame there was only the one series it would've just got better.
345Tommo - Great but cheaper
It's great, it's really worth the price, but you can get it for cheaper around; picked it up for £15 on hard copy. And the serenity Blu ray in a HMV sale, effectively for £6.
apples crap - It was £10 yesterday now its £25?
£25 for a SD version of a show that has only 14 episodes?
I came online to buy this but you're having a laugh if you think ill buy it for that
Freefall8 - A Very Underrated TV Show
Arguably a great show that left as fast as it came and mostly due to Fox Network's inability of stabilizing shows in one slot. This poor show was given bad time slots and then moved to the infamous Friday night death slot. (The day & time of the week when nobody watches TV).
Obviously due to the confusion of this insanity, Firefly lost a lot of audiences and it was cancelled.
But make no mistake. This is an exceptionally well conceived show from the brilliant mind of Joss Whedon (Creator of Buffy, Angel)
Set in the distant future when the two powers of the world, US & China have influenced the course of events in the show and set abroad humanity accross the universe. The show follows the crew of the ship Serenity who are more than willing to take on any jobs that come their way. That said, they have a stow-away on board who hides a dark secret.
The best advice i can give you is to watch Firefly and then continue the story in Serenity, the motion picture which followed after the cancellation of the show as the story continues into that.
This is no Star Trek. Its actually, in my opinion, better.
TAjka11 - How could they cancel it?!??!?
This is brilliant! I love the setting, characters are wicked, I want more please!!!!!
Adhemar77 - Iconic
It's an overused word but in this instance entirely justified.
A whole sub-genre was spawned.
It is rare to have a pretext that doesn't feel painfully contrived and inadequate (Allowing for the lack of actual Asians in the series).
To have solid special effects, good plot, exquisite writing and engaging characters as well makes for a lot of stars.
BSG's reboot demonstrated how to do this as a complete arc.
But I think this ship sailed. Leaving us with a James Dean of a series and a solid film to Append it.
Anndra - HD Version please
I can only echo the comments of everyone else. A series with a rating of 99.99993% five stars that most assuredly deserves its reputation.
Spookssga - Wild West meets Outer Space
I loved the show. saw every episode. BOOO to the studio for cancelling it. BRING IT BACK. Its got Action, Comedy and Fun with a side order of the Wild West with a SYFI twist. Plus i love the music to the opening titles.
Jon fj - Excellent
This is fantastic. We need another series. The characters are great, I cannot fault it.
torchwoodtardis - It was a crime that Firefly was cancelled.
This is such a brillant show! Just finished watching through the series and the film Serenity. The episodes are brilliant! So funny! I loved all fourteen episodes of Firefly. It was a crime committed by Fox when they cancelled this excellent sci-fi series.
Craigm6764 - Amazing!
This is a truly amazing series and they should have not stopped with only one season! The film is also excellent!
bronx zoo - stunning
this is not the best sy-fi show ever, it is the best tv show of any genre, ever, simple as, why this was canceled god knows, fantastic storys, great acting, bring it back NOW!!!
Icecold angel - Fantastic
Fantastic series plus the spin off movie serenity.
Shame iTunes can't spell reivers (it's a historical reference to the border reivers)
AngryAnt0 - Amazing... But
Firstly, this is an amazing show. No question about it.
Infact, this is probably *the* greatest show, of my generation. It's scifi at its best, pure and simple.
This big however, is nothing about the show. Its about the price. Yes this show is probably worth the amount iTunes is selling it for. But you can buy the box set off another well known site for £13.99, which gives commentaries, extras, etc..
End of the day, an amazing show, but look elsewhere.
alex,telford - 5star
what can i say i love this show! it really is one best sifi series
SaffaSwede - Amazing!
If you like sci-fi then you'll love Firefly. What a shame only one series! Excellent show!

Tommy05789644 - Awesome show
Honestly, I'm dumbfounded that this show was cancelled. A complete failure on the part of the network. It is a awesome show with a fun story. Definitely worth buying.
Me and me and me... - "We're still flying. That's not much. It's enough."
Watch it. Do it. I promise you will fall in love with her.
PlainCommonSense - I'll be in my bunk…watching Firefly.
The characters on this show have managed to become iconic despite the show being cancelled before a full season. Joss Whedon created something original and brave, unfortunately short-sighted executives at FOX see that as too risky. You'll fall in love with the characters and Serenity. I would even deem this a "family show" simply because it showcases great relationships among friends and family. Somehow Whedon created an incredible sic-fi show without sticking to any sic-fi cliches or stereotypes, which makes it one of a kind. The dialogue and stories are beyond clever. When you're done watching 'Firefly' and 'Serenity' you'll likely join the legion of fans dying for the show to come back.
NatServ - My favorite show
lmn8225 - Love this show!
I wish it would come back on the air. One season was not enough!
jhssmith - :)))
Nikkieheat - Cowboys? Space? What?
I walked into the living room while my 22 year old son was engrossed in a strange SiFi show. Easily board, I started to turn away, but a man in a cowboy outfit caught my eye and at the same time I heard something about a spaceship. My mind froze with confusion. “Is that one of those B rated movies with flying cowboys or something” I exclaimed. My son said “Dad, its an awesome show, and it has Nathan Fillion in it too.” Wanting to spend some quality time with my boy, I sat down and was prepared to just enjoy his companionship…. Before I knew it, I was totally submerged in the show… Five days later, I had blown through the entire season, and wanting more…… I only wish they’d come out with five more seasons. But with Nathan in Castle, and apparently with modern America moving on to other shows, I’m left to replaying this one season over and over again. Yes, I recommend Firefly!
Rice Bowl - All reives 5 stars
Speaks to the quality of this show, best Sci-fi TV show, of all time, period!
DallasDavid - Part Sci-Fi, Part Western, Part Comedy, Part Thriller
This truely is one of the greatest examples in history, of Television Network SCREW-UPS!
Granted, the show should have had a different name; it would have drawn a bigger audience.
But, those old enough will remember all the way back to Star Trek and see a long & shamefull tradition of networks treating science fiction shows like redheaded stepchildren. I honestly don't know WHY they even put it on the air in the first place, if they aren't going to give it a chance to catch on. I will tell you this: I wouldn't ALLOW a sci-fi series of mine on the air without a full season committment. Better to go to a smaller network & stay on, than allow yet another bright star fade into oblivion.
OK , about the show itsself - it is one of the finest series of any genre that I have ever seen. Look at it this way, if it didn't have a pretty damned loyal following, there would never have been a feature length motion picture to cap things off.
Yes, Serenity [the movie] wraps up the main storyline of Firefly.
If you have ever seen the TV series Castle, you've seen the rougish writer with the twinkle in his eye, Richard Castle. Nathan Fillion played the captain of the salvage ship in this series. If you watched EITHER Homeland OR "V", you have seen the breathtaking space-...um "working girl" played by the stunning Morena Baccarin.
If you've seen the show Chuck, you've seen the ships scheemer, Adam Baldwin. The show is whitty, amusing, stressful in the right places, and is done in such a "matter of fact" realistic manner that you think to yourself "this is how it will actually BE". And it WILL. You'll see for you self if you live that long. It also has a couple of quirks that make the show even more interesting, such as the use of Chinese.
You will usually hear it instead of English cussing.
WARNING: THERE IS A DISTINCT POSSIBILITY THIS SHOW WILL BE IN YOUR TOP 10 ALL TIME FAVORITE SERIES - don't be terribly shocked if it's in the top 5.
Yadda3x - Mandatory Watch
If you didn't read the other 2900 reviews you won't read this. But seriously, basically the best Scifi series of all time. Mandatory viewing for geeks, great writing for everyone.
fractal343 - Love this show
Bring back Firefly!
KellyLowther - Best Show Ever!!!!!!!
Combined space opera with Western folklore - characters were both human and mythic at the same time - place where we all want to live
Ginnyfeet - I Love This Show
I only got into Firefly a few years ago, but I heard great things about it one day and impulse-bought the series here, which is rare for me. Worth every cent. (Should have gone HD, but I don't remember that being an option then. I should be allowed to upgrade for a discounted price.) I watched it all in a few days and I loved it.
I re-watch often and keep the entire series on my phone, even though it means my music and picture space is severely limited. I just like the comfort of having it accessible all the time. (Though a much larger screen is preferable, especially for first-time viewers!)
I think the main reason for its devoted fan base is because of the well-developed characters. When they defended the show and tried to prevent its cancellation/bring it back after, many of them were probably doing it for a connection that they felt to these funny and relatable people floating around in space trying to get by. The Whedonesque sarcastic humor probably had something to do with it too.
Joss Whedon has many popular works, quite a few of which I have enjoyed immensely, but this show is by far my favorite (yes, that's a challenge). I hope he stays in the business for many more years.
Buy this series! (In HD.)
Doctor Latte - Shiny !
X242 - Awesome
I hate you Fox.
tjtomkolaw - Firefly - awesome!
Almost a western, certainly a sci-FYI, action filled, interest keeping, and making you anticipate more with each episode. The only disappointment is that more episodes were not made and that the movie raced the episodes to an abrupt mostly unexplained close. Series is a good watch!
MMoose - Excellent show
Why would you hold this show hostage. It is time to release the show Fox if you don't plan to make more episode. It is a great Sci Fi show that can easily appeal to non Sci Fi audience due to the lack of monster type things. The story are well written and the under meanings are present, actors are acting well their characters that you get attached quickly.
Rowan Kerr - How can you not like it?!
Repeat after me, Whedon is God.
Doug-USA - Great great great
The best ever ever ever. So so good.
mfirecarb - Greatest Sci Fi series, period
Such a great show, with such a great following even 10 years after it ended. Canceling this series was one of the true injustices of television. Great story lines, great characters, all in a science fiction setting. Love it, and would highly recommend.
Wesinoue - Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all...
Firefly is a bitter sweet thing.
JaredCB815 - Incredible
This show contains some of the most realistic storytelling in the history of television. It is incredible in every aspect:Cast, Camera-Op, Story, Direction, Pace, Effects, I can go on and on. If you have any sense, watch this show now and forever be changed to the world of television sci-fi.
Maxwell James - All the fuss
I checked this out because I wanted to know what the fuss was about. Hands down amazing writing and acting. Maybe I'm just being nit-picky since everyone says its "the best show ever" all the time but the only thing that took me out was the old special effects (for TV) and cheap looking sets. But aside from that note Firefly is yet another example that Joss Whedon is awesome.
[email protected] - Yegads. This show is brilliant
Oh. Right. Was brilliant. It never got a chance to be even shinier.
The cancelation of Firefly is the only time in my adult life that I've been sad about a tv show ending. Yes. Seriously. That damned good.
Watch it. Even though it's only one season and will leave you feeling unresolved (watch the film to get some level of closure.)
It's mature, funny, deep, pensive, witty, smart, engaging, cheeky, heart breaking, & adventurous. And if you balk at scifi. The fact that it's Scifi is secondary. The Scifi fades into the background like a wonderful, perfectly flavored roux. It's above all a character study.
There wasn't a moment I wasn't paying attention to the world, both physical and personal that Serenity and her crew were slowly unveiling for us.
Evil McWevil - Epic
Truly a show that shall last forever
I can't wait for season 2!!
Oh god damnit fox I hate you
But I love you joss whedon
VTX1300 - The Best
Titanic Boy - BOYCOT FOX
write a letter to Fox saying that u want the show back on the air, get enough of them, well, u have to put it back on
Calabiyau - Shame there's only 1 season...
It's probably the best crew interaction I've ever seen on TV. Shame they only filmed one season because this show is truly outstanding. I loved the movie Serenity and now that I've seen the first season of Firefly, I'm hoping someone will cry out for either another Serenety movie or another Firefly season.
Fireflyfan1 - The best TV show ever
This is my favourite show ever, because it has the perfect mix of action, emotion, and humor. You should buy it now
Infinityblade fanatic - Literally amazing
The only bad part about the show is that they only got through 14 episodes it is the greatest show ever and the movie after it,serenity, is great too
JoeCrates - Epic!
Never gets old, still my favorite TV show...
bekahdragon - Firefly best show ever
I love this show. It has the best cast and story. If they could bring back one show it should be Firefly. It's really awesome on Blu-ray
Lukos0014 - Shiny!
How did this show not catch on? Watched for free and still bought it.
Kai omori - Best sci fi show ever
Firefly is an amazing show, full of combat, adventure, and emotion. The cast is absolutely fantastic, and the plot and story are wonderful. Its definitely worth my allowance(I'm a kid)!
jlo1013 - Underrated but Packs a Punch
This series…wow. I'll be the first to admit I didn't watch it when it was on Fox. I actually hadn't heard about it until after it had went off air. A friend told me, 'Jen, if you like Farscape and Stargate, you'll love Firefly.' So I gave it a try (plus the fact it's produced and written by the God that is Joss Whedon) and instantly became a Browncoat. So give it a try, if you haven't already and you will be converted. Then go buy Serenity, the best tv series sequel movie since X-Files' Fight the Future.

If you look here the episodes are numbered wrong but if you download the whole series (and who wouldn't want to?) they're in the right order.
Plaboon - Best show ever
Yup... Best show ever
Sheazle - Good enough to buy twice!
I bought this show when it was first available on itunes, before itunes supported HD etc. and ended up with non-widescreen versions. This show is good enough that I bought the HD version also in order to make sure it wasn't the crappy video quality the episodes were the first time I purchased.
jeant2122 - Luv it!
Y wood they cancel this matserpiece?
LumosEnlightenment - Best Show!
This show is fantastic! It's been almost 10 years since the show was cancelled, and I never tire of watching it! Absolutely fantastic!
oldmicah - Solid science fiction world building
Incredible world feel with slick dialog. Joss enjoys turning standard story elements on their head, so watch and enjoy.
JechtWhale - Great show!
The cast and idea are perfect! Hate that it was cancelled. So funny at times. "My food is problematic!" I just burst out laughing. Summer Glau's character is my favorite.
hillpeople - Absolutely Fantastic.
I am a fan of sci-fi (Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc.), and I kept hearing about this show and how amazing it was. I wasn't dissapointed, and now I'm just mad that there's so little material. I know every fan complains about this, but it cannot be stressed enough: Firefly is a great show that went far before its time.
w(.)(.)t - Ripped off,I want my money back
Why the hell is this in 4:3 and not widescreen?
My fault I guess for not reading the other reviews but this is bs.
Awesome show,crap effort from itunes.
edit - ok so its finally here in HD like it should have been in the first place.....where is the upgrade to HD and pay the difference option? Of course Apple just expect to take my money again..
saltineofswing - Television At It's Greatest!
Man oh man, do I love this show! I can't even express it in words. The acting is phenomenal, and the script is funny and makes the characters relatable- ALL of them, even Jayne. Truly it is one of THE BEST, if not the best, show ever to grace the networks.
