I finally succumbed to recommendations of friends and picked-up the Firefly TV series on DVD…and it definitely didn't fail to impress. It's the best sci-fi show I've seen in a long time. It reminds me of ST:TNG in some ways, in so much as it's very character-driven, with engaging characters who are developed very nicely. I would certainly recommend it to any sci-fi fans who haven't had a chance to see it yet.
The fan community for Firefly seems to be alive and strong, and it looks like a fan-compiled Firefly documentary is on the verge of being released. I'm still debating picking it up… I know I can get fanatical about some things, but I'm not sure if I'm too that point with Firefly yet. I certainly wish that the TV series hadn't been cancel mid-1st- season.
