If you are the type of person who enjoys television shows with a futuristic theme, you will love the adventures of the Firefly Serenity crew. This action packed adventure series has proven to be a science fiction thriller for people who love science fiction. "Firefly" debut in 2002 in the United States on the FOX network. Because it struggled to find an audience and ranked only 98th in the Nielsen ratings, the show eventually fizzled and died after only eleven episodes. But that does not mean the popularity of the television series died with the end of broadcasting. It developed a hardcore cult following, and viewers missed the series so much that Firefly series DVD sales skyrocketed. For quite a while, copies were hard to come by. Because of the large fan based that still existed after production stopped, the creators started production of a sequel film, called "Serenity." It was a joint venture of Universal Studios and Joss Whedon. Whedon not only created the series, he also was the director who marketed the series under his own label, Mutant Enemy Productions. In addition, Whedon was also a co-executive producer for the television show with Tim Minear. The cult success of "Firefly" did not stop with the "Serenity" movie, however. Comic books and a role-playing game have sprung from up. If you have not yet had a chance to watch an episode of "Firefly," it could be well worth your time, as long as you realize that the episodes are limited. If a short-term, western/space drama marathon is not your thing, then you should at least check out the movie, "Serenity," just to see what all the fuss is about.
