My favorite show is FIREFLY is also my daughter’s favorite show. She’s 12, I’m 46. Very few shows are written well enough to capture the attention of such a diverse age group. Fewer shows are able to inspire an audience and Firefly has dozens of fan websites, several fan forums, a spin-off movie and it was canceled by its network???
For those of you who are Science Fiction fans, the greatest Sci Fi show ever produced will be re-aired in High Definition on the Universal HD channel They will start with episode 101 on Saturday July 14.
Unfortunately many people have never heard of this show! The show features a motley crew who travel around on a spaceship. There is Shepard Book (a monk from Southdown Abbey who may be some future version of Catholic?), a mercinary named Jayne, a prostitute who prays, a captain who lost his faith, a tortured genius who tries to “fix” the Bible and several other key characters who make up the core cast.
Five hundred years in the future there’s a whole new frontier, and the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity is eager to stake a claim on the action. They’ll take any job, legal or illegal, to keep fuel in the tanks and food on the table. But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. Now they find themselves on the run, desperate to steer clear of Alliance ships and the flesh eating Reavers who live on the fringes of space.
