If ever there was a show taken too soon, it was Firefly. But where can you watch Firefly these days?
Never commanding the highest ratings or viewing figures during its run on the Fox network, Firefly was canned before it had even finished its initial run of 14 episodes. Despite this unceremonious axing from the airwaves, the show has developed an enormous and devoted cult following, fans falling in love with the ambitious sci-fi opera for its excellent storytelling, stellar ensemble cast and the clear heart and affection with which it was made.
Fronted by Nathan Fillon and from the mind of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Joss Whedon, the show follows the fortunes of the crew of the Serenity, a ‘Firefly’ class spaceship thrusting out into the far reaches of the galaxy in search of profit and plunder. With its intriguing space-western premise and exceptional cast, Firefly should have been a home run for Fox, and while it did manage to spawn its own follow-up feature-length movie in the form of 2005’s Serenity, it couldn’t evade the cruel hand of cancellation. All that the legions of devoted ‘Browncoats’ still clamouring for its return can do currently, however, is rest safe in the knowledge that there are plenty of platforms still showing their beloved intergalactic odyssey as its creators intended.
