| A Must-See For Firefly Fans
When I first heard that some fans would be making a documentary about Firefly fandom, I thought it would be an amateur effort that I would tolerate only because I am myself a fan of Firefly and Serenity. I mean, who doesn't like a documentary about himself, right? Boy, was I wrong! Done the Impossible might be fan-created, but it was no amateur effort! The DTI team created a slick, high-quality, well-paced product that lays out the story of how the fans of the "best show ever canceled" banded together and would not let the dream die, of how creator Joss Whedon and his crew of actors drew inspiration from those fans to keep going, and of how Universal Pictures saw the enthusiasm and greenlighted a movie based on the show.

This tale of the little fandom that could is narrated by actor Adam Baldwin ("Jayne Cobb" on Firefly) and presented in interviews with hundreds of fans, as well as the luminaries from the cast, crew, writing team, producers, and of course Joss Whedon himself. Original music is provided by a slew of professional musicians who are themselves fans of the show. (BTW, the soundtrack is available on CD.) A poignant fact that comes through in these interviews is that the show was not just another TV show, for the fans or for those who created it. It was a chance to put something truly excellent and inventive in front of the American people, and like too many great efforts, it was squashed by the forces of corporate myopia.

But back to Done the Impossible. Besides the excellent main feature, the disc also includes an astounding number of special features, such as an interactive time line and a trivia game hosted by Jewel Staite. Easter eggs abound. The team that made this disc have used DVD technology to its fullest, creating a product that not only documents the love that fans have for Firefly, but demonstrates it fittingly as well.
