Where amazing tv lost against greedy tv executives...,
This review is from: Firefly - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
There are alot of shows on TV that deserve to be there and you would consider as great TV. The truth is there are also TV shows that are simply amazing, and many of these get cancelled.
Firefly is one such show, created by Joss Whedon and starring a stellar cast it showed the viewers that Sci-Fi when done properly can deliver every aspect, we the audience deserve. A story that on paper was bound to fail in lesser hands Firefly was a Sci-Fi western, realistic, dark, funny, action packed, character driven and expertly written and scripted. I always thought it was the ultimate show for non-sci fi people to watch as it was about the characters and rarely after one season has a show captivated audiences and made people genuinely care about them and the show, the ship and the whole world.
I cannot recommend this any higher as it's far beyond what we ever deserved and those that have not seen it will have missed out on something special. Among all the crap we get on TV where we are drip fed anything truly special this show is one of the few bright lights that TV has created, ruined by greedy tv execs who kept shows based on their demographic and sponsorship capabilities this only makes me more bitter towards tv networks as they never really know the difference between great TV , and only care about their bonuses.
Watch it, you'll get more from it than 12 seasons of Smallville or other crap we are given.
