As the 2005 theatrical release of _Serenity_ made clear, _Firefly_ was ascience fiction concept that deserved a second chance. Devoted fans (or”Browncoats”) knew it all along, and with this well-packaged DVD set, thosewho missed the show’s original broadcasts can see what they missed. CreatorJoss Whedon’s ambitious science-fiction Western (Whedon’s third series after_Buffy the Vampire Slayer_ and _Angel_) was canceled after only 11 of these 14episodes had aired on the Fox network, but history has proven that its demisewas woefully premature. Whedon’s generic hybrid got off to a shaky start whennetwork executives demanded an action-packed one-hour premiere (“The TrainJob”); in hindsight the intended two-hour pilot (also titled “Serenity,” andoddly enough, the final episode aired) provides a better introduction to theshow’s concept and splendid ensemble cast. Obsessive fans can debate thequirky logic of combining spaceships with direct parallels to frontier America(it’s 500 years in the future, and embattled humankind has expanded into thegalaxy, where undeveloped “outer rim” planets struggle with the equivalent ofOld West accommodations), but Whedon and his gifted co-writers and directorsmake it work, at least well enough to fashion a credible context from theincongruous culture-clashing of past, present, and future technologies, alongwith a polyglot language (the result of two dominant superpowers) thatcombines English with an abundance of Chinese slang. What makes it work is Whedon’s delightfully well-chosen cast and their ninewell-developed characters–a typically Whedon-esque extended family–eachproviding a unique perspective on their adventures aboard Serenity, the junkybut beloved “Firefly-class” starship they call home. As a veteran of thedisadvantaged Independent faction’s war against the all-powerful planetaryAlliance (think of it as Underdogs vs. Overlords), Serenity captain MalcolmReynolds (Nathan Fillion) leads his compact crew on a quest for survival.They’re renegades with an amoral agenda, taking any job that pays well, but_Firefly’s_ complex tapestry of right and wrong (and peace vs. violence) isricher and deeper than it first appears. Tantalizing clues about Blue Sun (aninsidious mega-corporation with a mysteriously evil agenda), its ties to theAlliance, and the traumatizing use of Serenity’s resident stowaway (SummerGlau) as a guinea pig in the development of advanced warfare were clearindications _Firefly_ was heading for exciting revelations that were precludedby the series’ cancellation. Fortunately, the big-screen _Serenity_ (which canbe enjoyed independently of the series) ensured that Whedon’s wildextraterrestrial west had not seen its final sunset. Its very existenceconfirms that these 14 episodes (and enjoyable bonus features) will endure asirrefutable proof Fox made a glaring mistake in canceling the series. –_JeffShannon_ Beyond _Firefly_ on DVD Watch _Stargate: Continuum_ on DVD Catch up on _Stargate Atlantis_ on DVD Check out _Sunshine_ on DVD Stills from _Firefly_ (Click for larger image) See all Editorial Reviews
