Firefly is an American space western drama television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon. The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship.
i saw this movie recommended somewhere in a sci fi movies list and just started watching it and didn’t realize it was a firefly movie until like 10 minutes in, but i was too intrigued. i was just curious what the consensus was on this movie both within the fandom and outside of it? i think it looks super awesome but obviously i’m confused as shit.
I helped decorate.
What's your favorite piece of Firefly merchandise? Mine is my 'leaf on the wind' necklace (tiny 'Serenity' on tip of a leaf).
I’m doing a cleanup of various fandoms and I have duplicate Firefly items I wish to give away. Figurines, pins, patches, tshirts, etc.
Any Milwaukee Browncoats willing to take it all for free? The cargo/loot crates are all mixed up so I can’t be sure any are complete but there is a lot of shiny stuff!
Please! No dealers! I’d really like to share with a fan or a small group of fans!
Dm me please!
I'm not sure if this is in a beginning or ending of an episode. Maybe somewhere in the middle? I've looked on Hulu to try to skim through some scenes, but I can't find it. Perhaps, I imagined it? Maybe, it's a deleted scene, somewhere? Or some "behind the scenes" footage?
They're all at the table eating, and River is sitting next to Jayne, at the table. I think some bread rolls were being passed around, and River was actually smiling. The camera was angled behind Mal (who is sitting at his usual head spot). Jayne is sitting to the left (from the camera view) of Mal, with River right next to Jayne. I forget where everyone else was sitting at.
IDK if anyone knows what scene I'm talking about, but I thought it existed, and I've searched to the best of my ability trying to look for it. Any help would be appreciated!
"...you're going to burn in a very special level of Hell.
A level they reserve for child molesters and people who lie about Firefly coming back."
What a tease.
How many times have you heard that 'Firefly is coming back'?"
!They run them through the Wash.!<
The show definitely did a good job of explaining his history with Zoe from fighting in the war together but she also rarely challenged him or questioned his authority and they have a very professional work-focused relationship for the most part. Book OTOH his relationship with Mal arguably develops more than any other captain/crew member relationship in the show (they basically go from Mal being wary of him being on Serenity due to his faith in the Pilot to Book being Mal's mentor and most trusted confidant in the Serenity film). Thoughts?
I watched firefly the first time in my early 20's and now in my 40's I'm doing a rewatch.
This is definitely Joss Whedon 's version of Han Solo, and he does a better job at Han Solo than Disney ever could. He does split characters out, and there's no Jedi, which is a good thing. River Tam is kind of a Jedi of course, but he builds it up slowly. Booker is Obi Wan, Jayne is the wookie, and so on.
I've heard some of the cancellation of Joss Whedon and it does affect how I see the show. In any work of art the writer's psyche is split across all of the characters.
Still, Whedon's alleged sins are minor in my opinion. I hope he does take on star wars because he definitely has the sensibility that star wars needs.
Hi all, want to surprise my guy with something cool that's Firefly related. I like the series but it's one of his favorites. He has the dvd's already, so looking for great merch recommendations please!
Just celebrated our 6th anniversary and I'd like to share some of the shiny from our special day. - - Husband was dressed like the Captain. - Instead of a bouquet, I carried Kaylee's parasol (which currently resides on the wall behind our TV). - Tables were named after planets from the 'verse - dinosaur figurines in the centerpieces (I meticulously painted the T Rex and stegosaurus for our main table and they currently reside atop our TV) - made a suggested drink list where we mostly renamed existing drinks, so a mudslide was called a Browncoat, a blue margarita was called a Blue Sun, I even made my own concoction of oatmeal, peanut butter, milk, and bananas to be mixed with whiskey for Mudder's Milk, that was quite popular with the Browncoats in our ranks - some people came in costume which really made us smile - we received a few off-registry Firefly-themed gifts including some original artwork. All in all, it was a very dorky and awesome day.
Hi - new member here! I'm doing a re-watch. I've noticed that the Space Marines in Firefly wear a similar if not identical uniform to the Space Marines in both Starship Troopers and Aliens. Am I seeing things/
Mine is "Out of Gas"
I love it when after the fire and they close all the doors, Doc say's "I need my medical bag or Zoe may die"
And Jayne replies "if I let you through we all die"
When my bestie and I saw the trailer for Serenity at some other forgettable film, we were dying to see it. Soon after, we did and ofc fell in love with it. We both agreed it kind of reminded us of a show we meant to watch but seemed to disappear before we got the chance. A little homework led us to Firefly, the story of its cult following, an immediate purchase and binge watch, and subsequent endless rewatches and turning other ppl onto the show. Even if we had to chase them down to do it. “No more runnin”
I’m curious if anybody else stumbled into it like this. It’s not that I would ever recommend doing it this way, because knowing what happens to the characters obviously changes the dynamic, but I honestly didn’t mind it. There was something kind of poignant and beautiful about getting to visit with all the characters and watch things unfold as we went through Firefly.
How many times have people said they wish they could watch it for the first time again? I know that’s not exactly what we did, but it was kind of the next best thing. The crew felt like family before we ever started and the feeling just got stronger as we went. We got to watch them slowly find each other. (Sidenote: Out of Gas will always be one of my top 10 episodes of any show ever.) It also gave me a very special appreciation of how outstanding Serenity was at introducing the characters and making everything fits so well and getting us attached so quickly.
We obviously went back to see Serenity a second time after binging Firefly, and it was richer the second time through because of our relationship and attachment to the characters.
I bet I'm not the only one who remembers hearing that Joss gave each actor a special secret about their character. >!For example, Morena Baccarin has shared that Inara's secret is that she is dying.!<
Does anyone else know or want to to guess what the other secrets are?
And all ll I can say is...Wow!
Sci-Fi isn't my usual genre but I have several friends who have been hounding me for years to watch. They finally broke me down and I boarded Serenity on Tuesday. Before I knew it, I was starting episode 14 and I watched the movie this morning.
I'm glad I watched it but I'm also sad...because I know I'll never get the chance to watch it for the first time again.
Anyway, I'll be in my bunk.
Has anyone else noticed the similarities between Firefly and 'The Expanse?' I love both. I'm rewatching Firefly a second time after a few years when I first saw it. I can't believe how good it is. I can't believe it was canceled after 1 season.
Long time fan of the 'verse, used to read a lot of sci-fi in school (15ish years ago) but want to get back in and would appreciate any direction. Firefly obviously being the gold standard, I thought here would be a good place to start. Xiexie!
