| Beautifully crafted and enjoyable series
This show blew me away. The beauty of the production, the detail in the sets, the well written characters, the intelligent stories and concepts, the fun, the drama, and the excitement all amazed me. I don't usually spend time watching TV, but I honestly hated having to wait until the next show! :)

The special effects are seamlessly integrated and beautifully detailed. The manner in which the show was presented - the hand-held cameras, the use of zooms, and the occasional off-focus effect - was very intriguing, giving it a look of a show that was real and gritty, something that really caught your attention but didn't distract you from what was being presented. It made you feel like you were really there, like it was believable.

While there was a Western attitude and flavor to some of the episodes, I always felt that it was more about the lack of authority, the fact that people were just dropped out on these planets without the kinds of support that you would expect. It's presented very well and makes sense to me, although I've heard others take a different approach to it.

If you have the opportunity to get the DVDs, I would highly suggest it. It is well worth the money!

Trivia

Some of the weapons used in the series were contemporary with the time of production and chosen based on their somewhat futuristic look. No modifications were made by the prop department to either disguise them or make them look more futuristic. Alliance soldiers are seen carrying British L85A2 rifles and Heckler & Koch MP5s, both in variant models. The Browncoats are seen using Heckler & Koch G36 rifles.


Quotes

Shepherd Book: If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters. And people who talk at the theatre.


Goofs

In commentary for Firefly: Shindig (2002), costume designer Shawna Trpcic states that Gina Torres wears her lariat necklace "binding" her neck as symbolic of her marriage bond. However, Zoe is shown wearing her lariat necklace in the flashbacks of Firefly: Out of Gas (2002), which take place before Zoe meets her future husband.


Alternate Versions

The first few episodes aired on TV featured the opening credits as they appear on the DVD Boxed-Set. However, the network feared the audience wouldn't understand the show's rather complex cast of characters, so asked that a different opening, complete with voiceover, be used for episodes airing later. The Region 1 DVDs are missing the voice-over introductions that were present when the later episodes aired on television, showing only the original credits, as intended by the producers.
