Hands up who hates Fox?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Firefly - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
Yes, it's true the 5 star rating would be higher if I could. This is actually one of the most brilliant demonstrations of what TV should really be; Original, funny, individual, smart, and above all amazingly well written. As everyone else says it is such a shame that this was cancelled without it even getting a chance, and I think by doing just a little bit of research it is evident Fox was at fault.
I got to the end of this DVD and couldn't even contemplate how good it could have gotten had it been given a chance, it seemed doomed before it even began, this series had shown real depth of character, intrigue with character stories, and so much more.
The only reason I could think of that you shouldn't watch this is the immense sense of loss you get at the end of the last episode... just at the point where you want to know what happens next.
Don't forget to watch Serenity once you've finished this, and keep your fingers crossed that Fox turn half human and release the rights for Firefly to fly another day with a new network.
... not meaning to rant (hehe).
