      Firefly was a great TV show, and this set is probably the best representation of the TV show that you will find out there. That isn't to say that Firefly on Blu-ray isn't without its problems. The picture quality in this series is no where near the Serenity movie that was released a few years later. Special effects are kind of blurry and background detail can be inconsistent. That being said, the source material is probably the cause here, and I don't think we'll get a better transfer without extensive remastering. The DTS HD audio track is quite strong however, and sounds excellent. The series is also loaded with great audio commentary tracks and a reunion special. Is all that worth the original $50 asking price? Maybe not, if you already own the series. But if you don't, and are a fan of Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion or the genre, you'll find plenty to like here. Speaking of price, I think the greatest thing about this set currently is the price. The Blu-ray set can be had for $14.99 currently at Best Buy. For that amount of money, this really falls into no-brainer territory. If you really hate space, and sci-fi you can look past this set. But for all others buy with confidence.

      Think Star Trek meets John Wayne. Or something like that. I didn't realize we carried the BD version of this or I would have bought it the day it came out. This show was by FAR the best that I have ever seen on TV and the network which will remain nameless was out of their gorram minds to cancel it. The cast is the absolute best group I have ever seen in a show together, the chemistry is perfect. The season, if you can call 13 episodes a season, leaves you wanting more. As remarkable as the show was, even more remarkable is the fact that AFTER it was cancelled, fan support was such that a movie was actually made to finish up a lot of the loose ends that were created by the short sightedness of cancelling the show. How many shows do you know of that happening for? Not too many I imagine. 5 million stars.

      I have been wanting to pick this show up on Blu-ray for quite some time, as I've had the film (Serenity) on Blu-ray for almost a year. Of course I have access to all the episodes on Netflix, so I was willing to wait for a good deal, and that's exactly what I got from Best Buy. I bought this Blu-ray for $12.99 along with another $40 in TV seasons, as Best Buy was having a promotion where you get a free $10 Gift Card when you spend more than $50 on TV shows. I can't wait to watch all the episodes on Blu-ray, but what I'm really looking forward to is watching the extra features, especially the deleted scenes! I just wish there were more than there are, but some is better than none.

      If you don't already own this series, well then go out and pick it up and get in on what everybody else is "raving"about. This was a neat little show that suffered for a lack of advertising during its prime. Too bad. Great storylines, characters, and acting. The special effects were good for the budget as well. Just ashame that the studio didn't try and seek a larger audience out. I relplaced the DVD version of this series and feel that the sound is better quality, and that the transfer quality is OK, but feel it's probably limited by the source material (again too bad they didn't have more budget for better effects which are rendered in lower resolutions). Bottom line, look for it on sale, pick it up and enjoy the series!!!

      I was a total fan of this show when it was on Fox, but evidentally Fox didn't think as much of the series. They couldn't find a place for it in their schedule, thus the ratings were not as good as hoped for. And now we have the Blu-ray of this short-lived series to enjoy and watch whenever we want. Joss Whedon (Marvel's The Avengers) produced this show from his heart, and created characters that are still real to us fans. Nathan Fillion (Castle) is the captain of a Firefly-class spaceship named Serenity and he and his crew will do anything legal or illegal to make a living. All the action-adventure a person could want, and a very good understory that sets us up for a thrilling climax each episode. Great addition to anyone's collection.

      Firefly. One of the best sci-fi shows ever made

      Firefly is an instant classic, with everything you'd expect from its creator, Joss Whedon. The man who brought us Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, and more recently, a little movie called The Avengers, introduces us to Captain Malcom "Mal" Reynolds, the captain of the Firefly class starship Serenity, and his ragtag group of crew, and passengers. Don't want to get too into the plot of the show, since it's been written about at great length over the last decade or so, but it's got everything we've come to expect from Joss.. action, adventure, humor, and everything in between.. If you're a fan of the work of Joss, or just of really good sci-fi with western overtones, this is a show I would highly suggest you get into.

      This is a very entertaining show that can be watched very casually, pretty much every episode has its own unique story. There are some major plot points, but they are not overdone, they tend to move along very well from episode to episode. The thing that amazes me the most is that I can like this as much as I can with the fact that it mixes Sci-Fi with Western. I know, it sounds very corny, but they actually make it work very well. I like the part of the intro where you see a herd of horses running and the spaceship comes not far behind making it seem like it is the spaceship herding the horses.

      While I could go on about the series itself--it is well worth watching--I'll focus on the set itself. Blu-ray does not disappoint with the image and audio quality of this series. One thing that threw me for a moment was that the order seemed off--the first episode on the disk one was not the first episode aired. Research uncovered that the actual pilot was not shown until late in the series and that the order on the disks were as intended by Whedon. Moving the pilot back to the beginning made more sense and provided a better introduction to the series. I have not explored all of the bonus features but as a fan of the series, this was a great purchase.
