Chronology
Followed by Serenity
.Firefly is an American space western television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, under his Mutant Enemy Productions.^ Creator Joss Whedon’s ambitious science-fiction Western (Whedon’s third series after Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel ) was canceled after only 11 of these 14 episodes had aired on the Fox network, but history has proven that its demise was woefully premature.

^ Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator Joss Whedon is returning to television with “Dollhouse,” a new sci-fi project starring “Buffy” alumna Eliza Dushku that has received a seven-episode commitment from Fox.

^ Due to the strike by the Writers Guild of America, production of the series is currently in a forced hiatus.” Wikipedia .

.Its future setting, modeled after traditional Western movie motifs, has been praised as an "oddball genre mix".[1] Whedon served as executive producer, along with Tim Minear.^ Smith”) serve as executive producers.

^ Gough and Millar serve as executive producers, along with Ken Horton, Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer, James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola.

^ Toni Graphia serves as co-executive producer and James Middleton and Natalie Chaidez serve as consulting producers for the series.

.The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship.^ Product Description 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.

^ Pocket put out 8 Alien Nation novels and novelizations back in the day, so we had those to get over the cliffhanger when the complete series set came out a couple of years ago.

^ Principal photography is tentatively set for a 2009 start, with the intention of “The Hobbit” release slated for 2010 and its sequel the following year, in 2011.

.The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity.^ Jason Miller and Max von Sydow are perfectly cast as the priests who risk their sanity and their lives to administer the rites of demonic exorcism.

.Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things".[2] The show explores the lives of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war who now make a living on the outskirts of the society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system.^ Who, black people can't become doctors!

^ This system is enforced by ’sandmen’ black-clad police operatives who terminate (kill) ‘runners’ (those who attempt to live beyond 30).

^ The Star Wars Trilogy had the rare distinction of becoming a cultural phenomenon, a defining event for its generation.

In addition, it is a future where the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures as well. According to Whedon's vision, "nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today."[3]
.Firefly premiered in the United States and Canada on the Fox network on September 20, 2002. Despite high expectations for the Joss Whedon-led project, by mid-December 2002 Firefly had averaged only 4.7 million viewers per episode and was 98th in Nielsen Ratings.^ The ONLY authoritative voice on this is Joss Whedon himself.

^ The third season of the new Doctor Who averaged 1.3 million weekly viewers on SCI FI. .

^ It is also the first film adaptation to be set in the United Kingdom as opposed to the more popular setting of the United States.” Plagued by production problems, and dating back to 2000 as a project.

[4] .It was canceled after only eleven of the fourteen produced episodes were aired.^ On November 6, 2007, The New York Post reported that only eleven of the planned twelve episodes will be completed, due to a strike by the Writers Guild of America.

^ The second season of Heroes premiered on September 24, 2007, but only eleven episodes have been broadcast, due to the current strike by the Writers Guild of America.

^ Due to the writers’ strike, the show has only produced 12 third season episodes, which will finish airing on February 21, 2008.” Wikipedia Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles .

.Despite the series' relatively short life span, it received strong sales when it was released on DVD and has large fan support campaigns.^ Never a ratings success despite a growing population of devoted fans, Star Trek was canceled after its second season, prompting a letter-writing campaign that resulted in the series’ third-season renewal.

^ Fortunately, The X-Files was still going strong at the time and fans got a bit of closure with The X-Files ’ season 7 tie-in episode “Millennium” (included on this DVD set).

[5][6] .It won an Emmy in 2003 for Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series.^ Still, a lot of the footage from the Web series will be used, with some enhancement of the visual effects and the CGI background to play better on the TV screen.

^ This Summer, the last war on Earth won’t be started by humans.” This is worth more that the user rating, IMO. It is a great visually exciting, with great special effect alien invaders movie.

^ Star Trek: The Animated Series lasted just barely over one season, but it won the franchise’s only Emmy (for Outstanding Entertainment Children’s Series in 1975) and some of its ideas were embraced by future series.

.The post-airing success of the show led Whedon and Universal Pictures to produce a film based on the series, Serenity.^ Directed and written by Joss Whedon, and based on the short-lived series.

^ Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh will serve as Executive Producers of two films based on “The Hobbit.” .

^ Fortunately, the big-screen Serenity (which can be enjoyed independently of the series) ensured that Whedon’s wild extraterrestrial west had not seen its final sunset.

[7] .The Firefly franchise expanded from the series and film to other media including comics and a role-playing game.^ Some of you may have played my games of the R-Theta series.

Production

Origin

Nathan Fillion as Malcolm Reynolds, featured in a print advertisement for Firefly in 2002
Whedon developed the concept for the show after reading The Killer Angels, a novel chronicling the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. .He wanted to follow people who had fought on the losing side of a war and their experiences afterwards as pioneers and immigrants on the outskirts of civilization, much like the post-American Civil War era of Reconstruction and the American Old West culture.^ The series follows the exploits of a team who fight against the aliens who want to invade the Earth.

^ If I understand the concept of the game correctly, the game is going to appeal to only a certain demographic: people who like 'Smash Brothers Brawl' or whatever it's called, and people who like indie games.

^ Haha i like "The Massive Collective" :D But i don't want to focus on the fact that i'm alone in the team because once my project is done i will need other people to come.

[8] He intended the show to be "a Stagecoach kind of drama with a lot of people trying to figure out their lives in a bleak pioneer environment."[9] Whedon wanted to develop a show about the tactile nature of life, a show where existence was more physical and more difficult.[10] .After reading The Killer Angels, Whedon read a book about Jewish partisan fighters in World War II that also influenced him.^ Classic Reads for Pre-teens and Teens - some old, some new Part II Childhood's End - a book review .

[8] .Whedon wanted to create something for television that was more character-driven and gritty than most modern science fiction.^ The setting is feudal and a bit science fiction-ey, with 'magic' consisting of biological skills such as self modification, creating minions, and the like.
  • Print Page - Game Name Clinic - I will rate your game's name 17 September 2009 7:13 UTC forums.tigsource.com [Source type: General]

^ I wanted to focus more on the play than the story this time (my games tend to be pretty story-driven) and so I chose a basic love story because it was simple, wasn't distracting and it fit with the game's positive vibe.

[11]
Whedon wanted to give the show a name that indicated movement and power, and felt that "Firefly" had both. This powerful word's relatively insignificant meaning, Whedon felt, added to its allure. He eventually wound up creating the ship in the image of a firefly.[10]

Format

.During filming of the pilot episode, Whedon was still arguing with Fox that the show should be displayed in widescreen format.^ The second pilot was accepted, and production on Star Trek began in earnest with the filming of its first regular episode, “The Corbomite Maneuver.” .

^ Indeed, based on the 21 episodes produced for the first season of Stargate SG-1 , it could be argued that this show is significantly better than the 1994 feature it’s derived from.

^ John Barrowman will be filming for the show after Christmas 2007, continuing his role as Captain Jack Harkness, and Billie Piper will return as Rose Tyler for three episodes.

.Consequently, he purposely filmed scenes with actors on the extreme edge of both sides so that they could only be shown in widescreen.^ Not only am I a big fan of the anime movie, but there are so many great action scenes, like the futuristic motorcycle chases, that could be amazing in the movie.

^ I’m only concerned that they won’t give this duo of films the proper budget that they really need, especially with a first-time feature filmmaker working on them.

^ With barely a flaw anywhere, the episodes look so clear, colorful, and detailed that they could have been filmed last week.

[10] .This led to a few scenes on the DVD (and later Blu-ray) where objects that should be visible (such as the ship's yoke) are not since they would not have been needed in a non-widescreen format.^ I would love to have them restored and on Blu-ray.
  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 17 September 2009 7:13 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ If there was a more fitting actor who happened to be non-white, they would've cast him.
  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 17 September 2009 7:13 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ However, Fox needs to make sure this is the last time they re-dip the series; maybe they should release it on Blu-Ray to make the HD fanboys happy.

.However, the pilot was rejected by the Fox executives, who felt that it lacked action and that the captain was too "dour".[12] They also disliked a scene in which the crew backed down to a crime boss, since the scene implied the crew was "being nothing".[10] Thus, Fox told Whedon on a Friday afternoon that he had to submit a new pilot script on Monday morning or the show would not be picked up.^ With new and extended scenes carefully added back into the film, the 12-disc set also includes hours of bonus features.

^ If an actor who isn't a pasty white guy can bring some balls and sorely lacking brains back into Doctor Who, I'm all for it.

^ Within a week, the show was set up Fox and 20th TV. .

[12] .Whedon and Tim Minear closeted themselves for the weekend to write what became the new pilot, "The Train Job".[12] At the direction of Fox, they added "larger than life" characters[12][13] such as the henchman "Crow", and the "hands of blue" men, who also introduced an X-Files-type ending.^ The manga takes place in a vastly larger timeframe than the film and involves a far wider array of characters and subplots.

^ Yoshimitsu Ohashi, who directed Galaxy Angel and Galaxy Angel Z , and the character designs are done by Uno Makoto, the character designer for Stellvia and Daphne in the Brilliant Blue .” .

^ Although Pathology isn’t directed by them, they did produce and write it, so it does have their “touch”.

[13]
.For the new pilot, Fox made it clear that they would not air the episodes in the widescreen format.^ I mean they stop playing new episodes the week before a holiday.

^ The first episode is available for free, with all following episodes priced at 160 Microsoft Points (equivalent to $1.99), and as of February 1, 2008, the first 8 episodes were available for download, with each new episode becoming available for download after it is aired.” .

^ It seems strange they would pick the new Who this early, but, I guess the new people in charge have to start early.

.Whedon and company felt they had to "serve two masters" by filming widescreen for eventual DVD release, but keeping objects in frame so it could still work when aired in pan and scan full frame.^ There are 11 earlier versions of The Master we've never seen who could be great villains if they ever decide to bring the character back.

^ This sounds like an animated Pixar project – they’re already two years in and have a year and a half to go of actual work as they prepare for its release in December of 2009.

^ But it eventually aired and as I said, I still recalled it, as does my then husband, Worth a look and maybe a place in the home library.

[14] .To obtain an immersive and immediate feel, the episodes were filmed in a documentary style with hand-held cameras, giving them the look of "found footage", with deliberately misframed or out-of-focus subjects.^ Rather than update the franchise to match current styles, Lucas and Spielberg decided to stay true to the prior films’ look, tone, and pace.

^ I feel this film deserves a higher viewer rating, and I would give it at least a 6 to 7.

^ With barely a flaw anywhere, the episodes look so clear, colorful, and detailed that they could have been filmed last week.

[10][15] .As Whedon related: "...don't be arch, don't be sweeping—be found, be rough and tumble and docu[mentary] and you-are-there."^ Moreover, there’s a growing sense of unease about the workings of the Millennium Group, so that in typical Chris Carter fashion, you don’t know who to trust.

[16] Computer-generated scenes mimicked the motion of a hand-held camera. This style was not used, however, when shooting scenes that involved the central government, the Alliance. Tracking and steady cameras were used to show the sterility of this aspect of the Firefly universe.[10] Another style employed was lens flares, hearkening to 1970s television. .This style was so desired that the director of photography, David Boyd, sent back the cutting-edge lenses, which reduced lens flare, for cheaper ones.^ The show’s sets are 90% CGI and shot in the same cutting-edge style as the feature films 300 and Sin City.

^ One soldier is sent back to protect her from the killing machine.

[10]
.Unlike most other science fiction shows, which add sound to space scenes for dramatic effect, Firefly portrays space as silent, because a vacuum cannot transmit sound.^ Perhaps you did so because, well, it looked sort of science-fiction-like with all that monster latex.

^ Amazon.com essential video This 1956 pop adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest is one of the best, most influential science fiction movies ever made.

^ Unlike the other spin-offs,the show as well as the characters evolved in its seven seasons.

[17]

Set design

The spacecraft Serenity was digitally rendered by special effects house Zoic Studios. The shape was inspired by the shape of the firefly insect, and its tail section lights up in imitation of it.
.Production designer Carey Meyer built the ship Serenity in two parts (one for each level) as a complete set with ceilings and practical lighting installed as part of the set that the cameras could use along with moveable parts.^ The two cunning Luthors continue to circle each other warily, each waiting for the other to make a move that could prove the end for father or son.

^ He puts his creativity to use by assembling a bulletproof set of power armor, complete with pacemaker and flamethrowers, and uses it to free himself.

^ Product Description For the first time ever find all 156 complete episodes of Rod Serling’s groundbreaking series in one box set packed with exciting extras!

[15][18] .The two-part set also allowed the second unit to shoot in one section while the actors and first unit worked undisturbed in the other.^ The current game I'm working on outside of Canvas Software is the first of a 3-part horror adventure called "Ravensmere: Facets of Terror".

^ I set it down on paper, and by the end of the first two pages, I knew I had a novel on my hands.” .

^ This is my second attempt – the first, almost done, disappeared into the depths of cyberspace, after a day of work.

.As Whedon recalled: "...you could pull it away or move something huge, so that you could get in and around everything.^ It'd be a LOT easier if I could manipulate the shapes on a by vertex basis and move the camera around in some intuitive fashion..

.That meant the environment worked for us and there weren't a lot of adjustments that needed to be made."^ There our nation’s greatest thinkers, the über-geniuses working on the next era of scientific achievement, would be able to live and work in a supportive environment.

[18] There were other benefits to this set design. .One was that it allowed the viewers to feel they were really in a ship.^ One of the mecha-producing companies builds David, an artificial kid which is the first to have real feelings, especially a never-ending love for his “mother”, Monica.

^ I have two real suggestions, ironic though they be: 1) Games For One 2) The Massive Collective .

[15] .For Whedon, the design of the ship was crucial in defining the known space for the viewer, and that there were not "fourteen hundred decks and a holodeck and an all-you-can-eat buffet in the back."^ For all that bouncing through space and time there paths must have crossed on many ocassions through many regenerations.

^ ON SHIPS: There were hundreds of workers building the sets for Avatar – MDF was being thrown around like candy to make the sets as realistic as possible – and it was very successful.

^ You first of all need a script that’s written in the express lane, and if it’s not, there’s nothing you can do in the editing room to make it move faster.

[19] He wanted to convey that it was utilitarian and that it was "beat-up but lived-in and ultimately, it was home."[20] .As Joss Whedon discusses in the DVD commentary, each room represented a feeling or character, usually conveyed by the paint color.^ Feature Commentary with Director Joss Whedon and Cast Members Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau, and Ron Glass .

[19] He explains that as you move from the back of the ship in the engine room, toward the front of the ship to the bridge, the colors and mood progress from extremely warm to cooler. .Besides evoking a mood associated with the character who spends most time in each area, the color scheme also alludes to the heat generated in the tail of the ship.^ A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… ” One of the most memorable opening lines in the history of film, this is THE SciF movie of it’s generation, and of the century.

Whedon was also keen on utilizing vertical space; thus, having the crew's quarters accessible by ladder was important.[18] .Another benefit of the set design was that it also allowed the actors to stay in the moment and interact, without having to stop after each shot and reset up for the next.^ We’re very careful to stay as true to the original design as possible but at the same time aging up his voice and the overall tone.

[15] This helped contribute to the documentary style Whedon strove for.
The set had several influences, including the sliding doors and tiny cubicles reminiscent of Japanese hotels.[18] Artist Larry Dixon has noted that the cargo bay walls are "reminiscent of interlaced, overlapping Asian designs, cleverly reminding us of the American-Chinese Alliance setting while artistically forming a patterned plane for background scale reference."[21] Dixon has also remarked on how the set design contributed to the storytelling through the use of color, depth and composition, lighting, as well as its use of diagonals and patterned shadows.[21]
.Their small budget was another reason to use the ship for much of the storytelling.^ But for some reason it’s just not used much anymore.

.When the characters did go off the ship, the worlds all had Earth atmosphere and coloring because they could not afford to design alien worlds.^ There are 11 earlier versions of The Master we've never seen who could be great villains if they ever decide to bring the character back.

^ And it is starkly designed – based in part upon Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS – but not a direct lift – it has echoes of that world – this film doesn’t deal with the class warfare – here – the people serve the city because the city is all there is to serve.

^ Emmerich goes on talking to Collider about how “undoable” this is, especially considering they’re going to, basically, destroy the entire world.

."I didn't want to go to Yucca Flats every other episode and transform it into Bizarro World by making the sky orange", recalled Whedon.^ Others suggest it could go into production this summer if all goes well.

^ I needed to show them to Janusz,” Spielberg says, “because I didn’t want Janusz to modernize and bring us into the 21st century.

[16] .As Meyer recalled: "I think in the end the feel was that we wound up using a lot of places or exteriors that just felt too Western and we didn't necessarily want to go that way; but at some point, it just became the lesser of two evils—what could we actually create in three days?"^ I'm going to have to think about this some more.

Greg Edmonson composed the musical score for the series. He stated that he wrote for the emotion of the moment. However, one reviewer averred that he also wrote for the characters, stating: "... Edmonson has developed a specialized collection of musical symbolism for the series ..."[22] .To help illustrate the collection, the reviewer gave key "signatures" various names, noting that "Serenity" recalls the theme of the show and is used when they return to the ship, or when they were meeting clandestinely; it was "the sound of their home."^ I can also recall meeting and hearing about swedes named Sanja.

^ But he and the others escaped while being transported and they obtained an advanced alien spacecraft named the Liberator, which they used to strike back against the Federation.

^ At the same time as they discover a hive colony of some unknown creature, the ship’s computer deciphers the message to be a warning, not a call for help.

The slide guitar and fiddle used in this piece are portable instruments which fit the lifestyle of the crew: "... the music they make calls up tunes played out in the open, by people who were hundreds of miles away yesterday. 'Serenity' conjures the nomadic lifestyle the crew leads and underlines the western aspect of the show."[22] .Another emotional signature was "Sad Violin". It was used at the end of the Battle of Serenity Valley, but also helped set up the joke for when Mal tells Simon that Kaylee is dead in the episode "Serenity". The most memorable use of "Sad Violin", however, is at the end of "The Message", when the crew mourned the death of Tracey.^ And Monica Dawson, another young woman (Dana Davis, “The Nine”) with newfound special abilities, would give up everything to help the people around her.

^ Episode one All characters are introduced and we get set up of the story.

^ In addition, for three episodes, Doctor Who ’s Martha Jones (Freema Agyemen) teams up with Torchwood to help solve a series of mysterious deaths in Cardiff.

.This was also the last scene of the last episode the actors shot, and so this was seen by them, and Edmonson, as Firefly's farewell.^ Special effects include commentary (by directors, writers, and/or actors) for every episode, as well as the occasional behind-the-scenes featurette.

^ There are some great behind-the-scenes shots from the original series that I’ve never seen anywhere else.

To denote impending danger, "Peril" was used, which is "a low pulse, like a heartbeat, with deep chimes and low strings."[22] The reviewer also noted character signatures. The criminal Niska has his own signature: Eastern European or Middle Eastern melodies over a low drone. Simon and River's signature was a piano played sparsely with a violin in the background. This is in contrast to the portable instruments of "Serenity": the piano is an instrument that cannot be easily moved and evokes the image of "the distant house and family they both long for." The various signatures were mostly established in the first pilot, "Serenity", and helped enhance the narrative. "In every episode, the musical score intensified my experience of this intelligent, remarkable show. .Using and combining all these signatures, Greg Edmonson brought out aspects of Firefly's story and characters that were never explicitly revealed in the other elements of the series."^ Some of these I hadn’t heard of, others I have watched all my life, over and over.

^ For those who have played STALKER, it's basically the artifact-hunting aspect of it multiplied by a hundred, and all the other aspects taken out.

^ Critics say that Woo left out a lot of the SciFi elements to attract a larger audience, and that left the story less than it should be.

[22]
The musical score expressed the cultural fusion depicted in the show. Cowboy guitar blended with Asian influence produced the atmospheric background for the series. As one reviewer stated:
Old music from the future — the music of roaring campfires and racous [sic] cowboys mixed with the warm, pensive sounds of Asian culture and, occasionally, a cold imperial trumpet, heralding the ominous structural presence of a domineering government. Completely thrilling.
—Steve Townsley, [23]
.The show's theme song, "The Ballad of Serenity", was written by Joss Whedon and performed by Sonny Rhodes.^ Just because Eliza Dushku will be an amnesiac with occasional false personalities in Joss Whedon’s new TV show Dollhouse , doesn’t mean she won’t have friends.

^ Directed and written by Joss Whedon, and based on the short-lived series.

.Whedon wrote the song before the series was greenlit and a preliminary recording performed by Whedon can be found on the DVD release.^ A direct to DVD release, one day before Spielberg’s film was released, it never had the following of a big-screen one with a big-name actor.

The soundtrack to the series was released on CD on November 8, 2005 by Varèse Sarabande, although a 40 minute soundtrack was released by Fox Music in September 2005 as a digital EP.[24]

^ Like its predecessors …, the poster features a great mural including all of the cast and scenes from the film.

.However, while filming the original pilot "Serenity", Whedon decided that Rebecca Gayheart was unsuitable for the role of Inara Serra, and shot her scenes in singles so that it would be easier to replace her.^ Afterwards, the director changed plans again, went back to the original setting and faithfulness to the book, put a new cast together and secretly shot the film.

^ However, the film is primarily going to be adapted from anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo’s graphic novel more than the original 1988 anime movie.

Costume

Jill Ohanneson, Firefly's original costume designer, brought on Shawna Trpcic as her assistant for the pilot. .When the show was picked up, Ohanneson was involved in another job and declined Firefly, suggesting Trpcic for the job.^ His witty dialogue sparkles, like an amped up Gilmore Girls in another universe, and so as I loved the series, I know I will love the movie, and I know many fans of the show that love this move.

^ Reilly and Fox entertainment chairman Peter Liguori called the decision to pick up the show “a layup.” .

The costumes were chiefly influenced by World War II, the American Civil War, the American Old West, and 1861 samurai Japan. Trpcic used deep reds and oranges for the main cast, to express a feeling of "home", and contrasted that with grays and cool blues for the Alliance.[39] .Since the characters were often getting shot, Trpcic would make up to six versions of the same costume for multiple takes.^ A film fest of all three 2005 versions, along with the 1953 version, and perhaps the Orson Wells radio narrative would make a fine showing.

^ That would make for some interesting storylines, especially if she/he met up with past companions like Billie Piper...

Plot

Backstory

.The series takes place in the year 2517, on several planets and moons.^ Back in February, blockbuster director Roland Emmerich revealed that his next big movie would be one titled 2012 , a disaster movie that takes place in the year of the title.

^ The SA contained several really cool space shuttles or “Seekers” that allowed them to take off-campus expeditions to nearby planets.

^ In “Earthbound,” aliens traveling to Earth state it will take them 75 years to reach their destination, making one wonder why it didn’t take the moon that long to encounter the aliens.

.The TV series does not reveal whether these celestial bodies are within one star system, only saying that Serenity's mode of propulsion is a "gravity-drive". The film Serenity makes clear that all the planets and moons are in one large system, and production documents related to the film indicate that there is no faster-than-light travel in this universe.^ He is only signed for one series correct?
  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 17 September 2009 7:13 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Planet of the Apes is no such film.

^ Product Description A science-fiction series with an ecological theme, EARTH 2 only ran for one season on NBC, and all 22 episodes of the program are collected here.

The characters occasionally refer to "Earth-that-was", and the film establishes that, long before the events in the series, a large population had emigrated from Earth to a new star system in generation ships:[47] "Earth-that-was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many." The emigrants established themselves in this new star system, with "dozens of planets and hundreds of moons." Many of these were terraformed, a process in which a planet or moon is altered to resemble Earth. The terraforming process was only the first step in making a planet habitable, however, and the outlying settlements often did not receive any further support in the construction of their civilizations. This resulted in many of the border planets and moons having forbidding, dry environments, well suited to the Western genre.

Synopsis

Mal and Zoe in the original pilot "Serenity". It depicts the harsh environment and the frontier culture.
.The show takes its name from the "Firefly-class" spaceship, Serenity, that the central characters call home.^ People started hounding him down, calling him in the middle of the night, following his car home, demanding to know his secrets of naming.

^ What makes it work is Whedon’s delightfully well-chosen cast and their nine well-developed characters–a typically Whedon-esque extended family–each providing a unique perspective on their adventures aboard Serenity, the junky but beloved “Firefly-class” starship they call home.

^ Product Description 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.

It resembles a firefly in general arrangement, and the tail section, analogous to a bioluminescent insectoid abdomen, lights up during acceleration. The ship was named after the Battle of Serenity Valley, where Mal and Zoe were on the losing side. It is revealed in "Bushwhacked" that the Battle of Serenity Valley is widely considered the loss which sealed the fate of the Independents.
.Throughout the series, the Alliance is shown to govern the star system through an organization of "core" planets, following its success in forcibly unifying all the colonies under a single government.^ Meanwhile, the annihilation of the Colonial government on Caprica resulted in the succession of Laura Roslin, the Secretary of Education, to the presidency.

^ Product Description In the 23rd century, humanity has spread to the stars and planets in Earth’s solar system.

.DVD commentary suggests that the Alliance is composed of two primary "core" planets, one predominantly Western in culture, the other pan-Asian, justifying the series' mixed linguistic and visual themes.^ I have two real suggestions, ironic though they be: 1) Games For One 2) The Massive Collective .

The central planets are firmly under Alliance control, but the outlying planets and moons resemble the 19th century American West, with little governmental authority. .Settlers and refugees on the outlying worlds ("out in the black" or "heading for the black") have relative freedom from the central government, but lack the amenities of the high-tech civilization that exists on the inner worlds.^ Civilization is a patchwork of a hundred worlds, most with weak governments and weaker laws.

In addition, the outlying areas of space are inhabited by the Reavers, a cannibalistic group of nomadic humans that have become savage and animalistic.
Into this mix are thrown the protagonists of the show. .The captain of the crew of Serenity is Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the episode "Serenity" establishes that the captain and his first mate Zoe Washburne (Gina Torres) are veteran "Browncoats" of the Unification War, a failed attempt by the outlying worlds to resist the Alliance's assertion of control.^ As a veteran of the disadvantaged Independent faction’s war against the all-powerful planetary Alliance (think of it as Underdogs vs. Overlords), Serenity captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) leads his compact crew on a quest for survival.

^ Serenity ’s cast is led with well-balanced depth and humor by Nathan Fillion as Captain Mal Reynolds, whose maverick spirit is matched by his devotion to crewmates Wash (Alan Tudyk), Zoe (Gina Torres), fun-loving fighter Jayne (Adam Baldwin), engineer Kaylee (Jewel Staite), doctor Simon (Sean Maher), and Mal’s former flame Inara (Morena Baccarin), who plays a pivotal role in Whedon’s briskly-paced plot.

^ Captained by a down on his luck, no faith soldier, the crew of Serenity must take jobs (legal or not) while avoiding the Alliance, and keeping the Tams safe.

A later episode, titled "Out of Gas", reveals that Mal bought the spaceship Serenity to continue living beyond Alliance control. Much of the crew's work consists of cargo runs or smuggling. .One of the main story arcs is that of River Tam (Summer Glau) and her brother Simon (Sean Maher).^ River Tam and her brother Simon are hiding out from the totalitarian government that experimented with River’s brain aboard the space-freighter Serenity.

^ Starring Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, and Summer Glau (the current Terminator in The Sarah Conner Chronicles.

.River was a child prodigy, whose brain was subjected to experiments.^ River Tam and her brother Simon are hiding out from the totalitarian government that experimented with River’s brain aboard the space-freighter Serenity.

As a result, she displays schizophrenia and often hears voices. It is later revealed that she is a "reader", one who possesses telepathic abilities. .Simon gave up a highly successful career as a trauma surgeon to rescue her from the Alliance and as a result of this rescue they are both wanted fugitives.^ The easiest group to repel are grown females, but they supposedly make up over 50% of the casual games market, so be careful if you are making a Zuma clone.

^ But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime.

.In the original pilot "Serenity", Simon joins the crew as a paying passenger with River smuggled on board as cargo.^ River Tam and her brother Simon are hiding out from the totalitarian government that experimented with River’s brain aboard the space-freighter Serenity.

.As Whedon states in an episodic DVD commentary, every show he does is about creating family.^ Special effects include commentary (by directors, writers, and/or actors) for every episode, as well as the occasional behind-the-scenes featurette.

^ Anyone who ever loved this show will want these DVDs–and many others may want to find out what the fuss was about.

[10] By the last episode, "Objects in Space", the fractured character of River has finally become whole, partly because the others decided to accept her into their "family" on the ship.[10]

Signature show elements

.The show blended elements from the space opera and Western genres, depicting humanity's future in a manner different from most contemporary science fiction programs in that there are no alien creatures or large space battles.^ Earth’s last battle will be fought in space.” This was a long-time favorite of mine, and ‘lost’ during the years of only 3-4 channels and no VCRs.

^ I vote for no assistant, just a different alien love interest every so often as per Kirk.

^ There is no future until you settle the past.” This is a much more sumptious Dune than it’s prequel Pitch Black.

.Firefly takes place in a multi-cultural future, primarily a fusion of Occidental and Chinese cultures, where there is a significant division between the rich and poor.^ The plot and storyline of the film takes place after the events of T3 around 2014 and focuses mainly on the war between humanity and Skynet in the post-apocalyptic world.

As a result of the Sino-American Alliance, Mandarin Chinese is a common second language; it is used in advertisements, and characters in the show frequently use Chinese words and curses. .According to the DVD commentary on the episode "Serenity", this was explained as being the result of China and the United States being the two superpowers that expanded into space.^ Still, the sets are a vast improvement both in terms of shelf space and bonus features compared to the old two-episode discs , which were released before full-season boxed sets became the model for television DVDs.

^ Dark Matter delves into the world of Liu Xing (Chinese for “Shooting Star”), a Chinese science student pursuing a Ph.D. in the United States in the early 1990s.

^ Now the new young recruits of the United States Marine Corps Space Aviator Calvary are heading for the front lines of space in the toughest battle the world has ever faced.

[48]
The show also features slang not used in contemporary culture, such as adaptations of modern words, or new words altogether. .For example, "shiny" is frequently used in a similar manner as the real world slang "cool". Written and spoken Chinese as well as Old West dialect are also employed.^ Cool, well I was inspired to make the game when I watched a bunch of old-ass cartoon intros in a row.

As one reviewer noted: "The dialogue tended to be a bizarre purée of wisecracks, old-timey Western-paperback patois, and snatches of Chinese."[7]
.Tim Minear and Joss Whedon pointed out two scenes that, they believed, articulated the mood of the show exceptionally clearly.^ Joss is not only one of the more innovative show creators out there, he is an unbelievably accomplished showrunner,” Liguori said.

^ Just because Eliza Dushku will be an amnesiac with occasional false personalities in Joss Whedon’s new TV show Dollhouse , doesn’t mean she won’t have friends.

^ Here’s the production notice which Fox sent out along with the casting call for Dollhouse , Joss’ new show: .

[10] One scene is in the original pilot "Serenity", when Mal is eating with chopsticks and a Western tin cup is by his plate; the other is in the "The Train Job" pilot, when Mal is thrown out of a holographic bar window.[12] The DVD set's "making-of" documentary explains the series' distinctive frontispiece (wherein Serenity soars over a herd of unshod horses) as Whedon's attempt to capture "everything you need to understand about the series in five seconds."
.One of the struggles that Whedon had with Fox was the tone of the show, especially with the main character Malcolm Reynolds.^ The tone of the show is one of scientific dispassion, setting it apart from its TV sci-fi predecessors such as Star Trek , whose mood was more convivial.

^ The structure mimics the makeup of the main character; each of the first five chapters is told from the point of view of one of the members of the pod.

^ Unless the main character is a famous, instantly recognizable one (like Mario or Santa), don't use their name in the title.

In addition, Fox was not happy that the show involved the "nobodies" who "get squished by policy" instead of the actual policy makers.[10][13]

Cast

Main characters

.Firefly maintained an ensemble cast that portrayed the nine crew members of the ship, Serenity.^ After a bad landing on the planet, some crew members leave the ship to explore the area.

.These characters fight criminals and schemers, Alliance security forces, the utterly psychotic and brutal Reavers, and the mysterious men with "hands of blue" — who are apparently operatives of a secret agency which is part of the mega-corporation referred to in the DVD commentary only as The Blue Sun Corporation.^ None of these parts have been cast yet (as far as we know), but here are the characters Joss has come up with: .

^ Jake 2.0 was an American television series about Jake Foley, a computer technician for the super-secret National Security Agency (NSA) and became a secret agent after a freak accident at the Agency.

^ Yoshimitsu Ohashi, who directed Galaxy Angel and Galaxy Angel Z , and the character designs are done by Uno Makoto, the character designer for Stellvia and Daphne in the Brilliant Blue .” .

.The crew is driven by the need to secure enough income to keep their ship operational, set against their need to keep a low profile to avoid their adversaries.^ Captained by a down on his luck, no faith soldier, the crew of Serenity must take jobs (legal or not) while avoiding the Alliance, and keeping the Tams safe.

Their situation is greatly complicated by the divergent motivations of the individuals on board Serenity, but complex characterization was hampered by the show's brief run.
.
  • Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) is the owner of Serenity and former Independent sergeant in the pivotal Battle of Serenity Valley.^ As a veteran of the disadvantaged Independent faction’s war against the all-powerful planetary Alliance (think of it as Underdogs vs. Overlords), Serenity captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) leads his compact crew on a quest for survival.

    .Very little is known about the enigmatic Captain; the little he reveals about his past life betrays nothing of his character (a mystery of its own).^ Quote Quote Too Many Isotopes It's over 20 years since the game 'Critical Mass' came out, and it's not well known in any case (AND it had very little to do with nuclear reactions).

    ^ Due to the highly secretive nature of the project, very little is known about the movie’s plot.

    ^ Told retrospectively, many of the mysteries revealed gradually in the main series are recounted, making the show a collection of spoilers for newcomers while adding little for established fans.

    Malcolm reveals that he grew up on a ranch, and was raised by his mother and the ranch hands. The only other scenes of his past life that are shown are about the Unification War, in which he and Zoe fought for the Independent Army, the "Browncoats", as a platoon sergeant in the 57th Overlanders. He is an efficient leader and is skilled with guns as well as in hand-to-hand combat. Mal's character is full of contradictions. He is constantly fighting his demons, and his true self remains something of a mystery.
  • Zoe Alleyne Washburne (Gina Torres) is second-in-command onboard Serenity, a loyal wartime friend of Captain Reynolds, and the wife of Wash. Described by her husband as a "warrior woman", she has great knowledge of combat. .Her past is a mystery; the only thing known is that she was born and raised on a ship[49] and served under Mal during the war as a corporal.^ After resigning from a top-secret position, a man is abducted from his London home and taken to a mysterious place known only as The Village.

    ^ Is this only an American thing where there is no past beyond the last fifty seconds?

    [50] She demonstrates an almost unconditional loyalty to Mal, the only exception noted being her marriage to Wash, which the captain claims to have tried to prevent. .Her maiden name is Warren, seen in a Serenity DVD Easter Egg.
  • Hoban "Wash" Washburne (Alan Tudyk) is Serenity's pilot and Zoe's husband.^ The guys over at Moviehole.net have a quote from Alan Tudyk (who plays Wash) where he claims that the recent buzz regarding the re-release of the Serenity DVD is causing Universal to consider making another one.

    .Wash expresses jealousy over his wife's "war buddy" relationship and unconditional support of their captain, most particularly in the episode "War Stories", in which he confronts Mal regarding their relationship.^ The mythos element is still present, but season 3 is a definite return to the look and feel of season 1 where most of the episodes are individual dark crime stories.

    .While more of Wash's past is disclosed than most other characters, his background is still sparse: he joined pilot training just to see the stars, which were invisible from the surface of his polluted homeworld, and he joined Serenity despite being highly sought after by other ships.^ And no other cast of characters lasting more than one ep?

  • Inara Serra (Morena Baccarin) is a Companion, which is the 26th century equivalent of a courtesan or oiran. Like her Renaissance counterparts, Inara enjoys high social standing. Her presence confers a degree of legitimacy and social acceptance the crew of Serenity would not have without her on board. .She and Mal have a strained relationship, with unspoken romantic tension playing a significant part in several episodes, as well as in the movie.^ Tapping, who co-starred on that series last season, will return for several episodes.” Categories: Sci Fi · fantasy · movies · science fiction Tagged: fantasy , movies , Sci Fi , science fiction .

    Inara arguably represents Mal's heart, and Mal is a noticeably darker character when Inara is absent (as during the first half of "Serenity"). She rents one of the ship's two small shuttles.
  • Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) is hired muscle. He and Mal met on opposite sides of a rivalry; Mal, while held at gunpoint, offered Jayne his own bunk and a higher cut than his current employer, so he turned coat and shot his then-partners. .In one episode, he admits freely to Mal that he would have sold Mal out to an Alliance agent if the money was good enough.^ A good pun would work perfectly here, but I'm not familiar enough with Lode Runner's gameplay to invent one myself.

Reception

Critical review

The Boston Globe described Firefly as a "wonderful, imaginative mess brimming with possibility." The review further notes the difference between the new series and other programs to be that those shows "burst onto the scene with slick pilots and quickly deteriorate into mediocrity..."Firefly" is on the opposite creative journey."[58] Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle felt that the melding of the western and science fiction genres was a "forced hodgepodge of two alarmingly opposite genres just for the sake of being different", and suggested that calling the series a vast disappointment would be an "understatement".[59]
.Carina Chocano of Salon.com notes that the series lacks the psychological tension that made Whedon's other series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, successful.^ Creator Joss Whedon’s ambitious science-fiction Western (Whedon’s third series after Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel ) was canceled after only 11 of these 14 episodes had aired on the Fox network, but history has proven that its demise was woefully premature.

^ Angel, the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul, got his own series after three seasons on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and did what any new star might do: he moved to L.A. (the City of Angels–get it?

^ NOTE: The other series are in Parts II & III. .

She points out that while the 'space as Wild West' metaphor is fairly redundant, neither genre connected to the present. Chocano concedes that this might be attributable to the episodes being aired out of order.[58]
.In contrast, Jason Snell called the show one of the best on television, and one "with the most potential for future brilliance."^ Amazon.com essential video This 1956 pop adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest is one of the best, most influential science fiction movies ever made.

^ For its day, this show boasted some of the best visual effects on television (cheezy by today’s standards of course) with detailed scale models and stop-motion aliens.

^ It might have something to do with the fact that a lot of these people are barely known in the USA and many have at most only been seen in one or two shows.

.Roush opined that the shift from space travel to horseback was "jarring", but that once he got used to this, he found the characters cleverly conceived, and the writing a crisp balance of action, tension and humor.^ The series offered a timelessly appealing balance of humor, imagination, and character depth.

[61] Emily Nussbaum of the New York Times, reviewing the DVD set, noted that the program featured "an oddball genre mix that might have doomed it from the beginning: it was a character-rich sci-fi western comedy-drama with existential underpinnings, a hard sell during a season dominated by Joe Millionaire."[1]
.MSN points out that after viewing the DVD boxed set it was easy to see why the program had attracted many die-hard fans.^ Fortunately, The X-Files was still going strong at the time and fans got a bit of closure with The X-Files ’ season 7 tie-in episode “Millennium” (included on this DVD set).

Fandom

.Firefly generated a loyal base of fans during its three-month original broadcast run on Fox in late 2002. These original fans, self-styled Browncoats, first organized to try to save the series from being canceled by Fox.^ Being a fan of the Runman series, I personally really like "Race Around the World" :D .

^ It would have been unthinkable for the original series to have tackled most of these.

^ Each movie will be based on three of the six volumes from Katsuhiro Otomo’s graphic novel that was first published in 1982.

Their efforts included raising money for an ad in Variety magazine and a postcard writing campaign to UPN. .While unsuccessful in finding a network who would continue the show, their support led to a release of the series on DVD in December 2003.[6] A subsequent fan campaign then raised over $14,000 in donations to have a purchased Firefly DVD set placed aboard 250 U.S. Navy ships by April 2004 for recreational viewing by their crews.^ Aspect Ratio: 1.33:1 Number of discs: 22 Rating: Studio: Paramount DVD Release Date: December 14, 2004 Run Time: 4117 minutes Editorial Reviews .

[7] (The title of Serenity was chosen, according to Whedon, because Fox still owned the rights to the name 'Firefly'). .Numerous early screenings were held for existing fans in an attempt to create a buzz and increase ticket sales when it was released widely on September 30, 2005.[7] The film was not as commercially successful as fans had hoped, opening at number two and making only $40 million worldwide during its initial theatrical release.^ Fans will also enjoy the appearance of old-school Cylons, and the revelation that Gaius is not the only one who fell for the wiles of Number 6 (Tricia Helfer).

^ We love that about it.” Still, the film was barely in theaters, grossing only $273,420 on a nearly $18 million budget.

^ BoingBoing.net posted “Shadow Unit: award-winning sf writers create “fan site for a show that never existed” .

.On June 23, 2006 fans organized the first worldwide charity screenings of Serenity in 47 cities, dubbed as Can’t Stop the Serenity or CSTS, an homage to the movie’s tagline, "Can’t stop the signal."^ One Rule: Stay in the light.” This is the first of the Riddick movies, and is pure terror, heart-stopping suspense, with plenty of popping aliens.

[64] The event raised over $65,000[65] for Whedon's favorite charity, Equality Now. In 2007, $106,000 was raised,[66] with a goal of $150,000 in 2008.
Another campaign on June 23, 2006 referred to the date as Serenity Day,[67] on which fans bought—and got others to buy—copies of the Serenity and Firefly DVDs in hopes of convincing Universal that creating a sequel was a good business decision. On this day, Serenity and Firefly were ranked second and third, respectively, on the DVD Best Sellers list. .The dates for both campaigns were chosen because it is series creator Joss Whedon’s birthday.^ Just because Eliza Dushku will be an amnesiac with occasional false personalities in Joss Whedon’s new TV show Dollhouse , doesn’t mean she won’t have friends.

^ Directed and written by Joss Whedon, and based on the short-lived series.

In July 2006, a fan-made documentary was released, titled, Done the Impossible, and is commercially available. .The documentary relates the story of the fans and how the show has affected them, and features interviews with Whedon and various cast members.^ It's the current name because it's the first line of text, and there won't be a title screen for various reasons (related to the gameplay & story).

^ Now, as the two-hour “Rising” pilot details, a new team has gained access to the legendary city.

^ Talks shifted into high gear when the trio came back with a DVD containing two one-hour blocks of webisodes.

.The show originally aired in the United States in 2002 on Fox, although Fox aired the episodes out of the intended order and did not air three of the fourteen episodes.^ The SCI FI Channel has announced that it has ordered a third season of all-new episodes of its most-watched show, Eureka .

^ The show Reaper stopped airing after the tenth episode when the writers went on strike.

^ The dispute has also led to the postponement of a six episode spin-off, Heroes: Origins , which was originally expected to air in April and May 2008.” .

.These first were aired with the rest of the series during repeat broadcasts on the Sci Fi Channel.^ SCI FI Channel is a television network where “what if” is what’s on.

.Although Whedon had designed the show to run for seven years,[79] and the show had a loyal following during its original broadcast,[80] low ratings resulted in cancellation by Fox in December 2002 after only eleven episodes had aired in the United States and Canada.^ However, the series suffered from low ratings, and NBC allowed its option for a full season order to lapse by the December 11, 2007 deadline for renewal.

^ Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1 Number of discs: 4 Rating: Studio: 20th Century Fox DVD Release Date: December 9, 2003 Run Time: 675 minutes Editorial Reviews .

^ Creator Joss Whedon’s ambitious science-fiction Western (Whedon’s third series after Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel ) was canceled after only 11 of these 14 episodes had aired on the Fox network, but history has proven that its demise was woefully premature.

[81] .Prior to cancellation, some fans, worried about low ratings, formed the Firefly Immediate Assistance campaign whose goal was to support the production of the show by sending in postcards to Fox.^ The show’s comic approach masked some smart plotting and involved thinking about the mechanics of time travel.

^ By most estimates, the writers’ strike will be over by then, but that is not a factor for the show, whose production is strike-proof because it’s based in Canada.

^ Never a ratings success despite a growing population of devoted fans, Star Trek was canceled after its second season, prompting a letter-writing campaign that resulted in the series’ third-season renewal.

.After it was canceled, the campaign worked on getting another network such as UPN to pick up the series.^ Though the producers seemed confident that the program would be picked up for a second season, the series was initially cancelled by CBS in May 2007.

^ I’ll hit the ground running, and I’ll work until I’m supposed to, then I’ll stop dead in my tracks and will pick up my picket signs,” he said.

^ His witty dialogue sparkles, like an amped up Gilmore Girls in another universe, and so as I loved the series, I know I will love the movie, and I know many fans of the show that love this move.

The campaign was unsuccessful in securing the show's continuation.[82]
The Onion A.V. Club cited several actions by the Fox network that contributed to the show's failure, most notably airing the episodes out of sequence, making the plot more difficult to follow.[83] .For instance, the double episode "Serenity" was intended as the premiere, and therefore contained most of the character introductions and back-story.^ It was a mixed blessing, since Roddenberry had departed as producer to protest the network’s neglect, and Star Trek ’s third season contained most of the series’ weakest episodes.

^ Bull and company started creating story and character arcs in August 2007, examining character backstories, outlining and assigning episodes for each of the authors to write.

.However, Fox decided that "Serenity" was unsuitable to open the series, and "The Train Job" was specifically created to act as a new pilot.^ Instead of an adaptation of the original story, the producers decided to create an entire new setup, with all new characters.

^ If the film is well received, NBC will use it as the pilot in a new Knight Rider series.

^ The article also mentioned that Fox has decided to take a look and then decide whether or not to order new episodes, something considered unlikely.

[12] .In addition, Firefly was promoted as an action-comedy rather than the more serious character study it was intended to be, and the showbiz trade paper Variety noted Fox's decision to occasionally preempt the show for sporting events.^ And no other cast of characters lasting more than one ep?

Media franchise

.The popularity of the short-lived series served as the launching point for media franchise within the Firefly universe, including a feature film Serenity which addresses many plot points left unresolved by the cancellation of the series.^ Special features are again bountiful, including audio commentary on all episodes, various featurettes, and five “directors series” entries devoted to particular episodes.

^ Eventually expanding to encompass five separate TV series, an ongoing slate of feature films, and a fan base larger than the population of many third-world countries, the Star Trek universe began not with a Big Bang but with a cautious experiment in network TV programming.

^ Directed and written by Joss Whedon, and based on the short-lived series.

.Additionally there were two comic-book mini-series, Serenity: Those Left Behind (104 pages, 2006), and Serenity: Better Days (80 pages, 2008) in which Whedon explored plot strands he had intended to explore further in the series.^ Pocket put out 8 Alien Nation novels and novelizations back in the day, so we had those to get over the cliffhanger when the complete series set came out a couple of years ago.

^ He takes the quite defensible course of focusing on those “normals” left behind, on the assumption that everything on the far side of the Singularity is unintelligible to us mere mortals.

^ Fortunately, the big-screen Serenity (which can be enjoyed independently of the series) ensured that Whedon’s wild extraterrestrial west had not seen its final sunset.

.The comics are set, in plot terms, between the end of the TV series and the opening of the feature film.^ With new and extended scenes carefully added back into the film, the 12-disc set also includes hours of bonus features.

^ The show’s sets are 90% CGI and shot in the same cutting-edge style as the feature films 300 and Sin City.

^ The film is set in the future, in a full-scale war between Skynet and humankind.

The mini-series were later published in collected form as hardback graphic novels.
A role-playing game has since been produced in book form.
