The Gateway Drug

(Review of: Firefly)

I usually show this to people who say they "hate" sci-fi or only have a very limited understanding of what sci-fi (and particularly sci-fi film and tv) is capable of. The show succeeds from a combination of great writing, solid acting from all involved, a wonderful tone and sense of place, and the deft blending of western frontier mythology, sci-fi tropes, class issues, humor, and a real understanding of human nature. It's criminal that the network canceled the show after (a) bungling the episode order and (b) not really understanding how to promote it in the first place. Watch this first before seeing "Serenity."
