The show was called FIREFLY, the ship that the crew flew around in is called "Serenity" hence the movie coming in Septmeber is called SERENITY. Yes, they should just have called it FIREFLY: THE MOTION PICTURE like our Federation friends but what are you gonna do?

You've probably heard of this show by now, and like me had dismissed it as one of those shows you didn't want to get into because its by that "Buffy" guy. Your guard has been dropped since you started reading Joss Whedon's ASTONISHING X-MEN because its the best X-Men since Claremont and Byrne but you still don't want to commit to a series that got cancelled.

Well I tell you, I sat down with the PILOT (Hmmm..also entitled "Serenity") and was sucked in. I had to watch the rest, as it went along it got better and better. Dare I say that Mal Reynolds is the best captain since Kirk or Solo? He's got the best crew since the A-Team? Definitely an amazing show that will captivate you, no vampires and no real sci-fi techno-babble and no weird aliens - it really is a live-action Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star. If you like the idea of a Han Solo series (Jayne is a human Chewbacca) but set in a futuristic cowboy back drop then you need to get yourself up to speed on this series before the movie SERENITY hits September 30th. If you need the sex appeal to lure you in - Serenity has its own on board hooker played by the SUPER HOT - Morena Baccarin - that if slightly taller would be a dead ringer for Diana Prince.

And speaking of the movie - Whedon has already preached and won over the converted with these special advance screenings - and now they are getting the rest of you webheads; with special viral mini films going out in a Blair Witch sort of way. You had me already Joss - this kind of stuff just puts it over the top and how legends are made. Damn, now I have to watch 7 seasons of Buffy and 5 of Angel - if you dissed him before I'd say you were missing out.
