Something original for a change
Cownboys in space, mix of six guns and spaceships:). Original and well liked. Does make you wonder if the real reason this was cancelled was because of the chinese in the show, which i think is a big no,no in the US. Pity no more but did lead to an even better film.

An alternate view on Sci-Fi
The best Sci-Fi show I ever saw: great characters (Jayne is the greatest anti-hero ever penned), excellent scripts, 'realistic' settings and no alien life-forms. The show is packed with witty one-liners. If you have a reasonable IQ then you'll love this. Pity it was axed early, there were so many story lines developing......

A great show - Joss Whedon's best. There should have been so much more. Brilliant stories and great scripts as well as exceptional acting make this show a masterpiece. The characters are truly wonderful creations particulary Captain Malcolm Reynolds, River and Wash - Jayne's always good for a laugh to. It's exciting, dramatic, funny and extremely entertaining - don't miss it. The film of it is excellent too so watch Serentity.

Best episode?
This has got to be one of the best episodes of Firefly (IMHO) along with the episodes with "Mrs Reynolds" -- pity the studio powers that be showed the series out of order so no-one understood it the first time round (leading to its cancellation)

Brilliant show
Infuriating that the halfwit US networks cancelled this. Great cast, great concept and brilliant fun. This is a must watch for all Sci-fi fans
