Storyline

Firefly and Serenity have grown beyond the genius of Joss Whedon. The words Firefly and Browncoat have come to symbolize a sense of community, family, and believing that the impossible can be accomplished. These concepts are at the very heart of Firefly and of its fans. Adam Baldwin hosts the telling of this vivid Browncoat story that features interviews with Joss Whedon, creator of Firefly and Serenity, the cast, crew, and most important, the fans themselves. The story chronicles the rise, fall, and rebirth of the cult TV show "Firefly" as told from the perspective of the fans who helped save it. Fans of the TV show and movie share what inspired them to become passionate about Firefly, to help save Firefly, attend shindigs, participate in message boards, donate to charities, and become Serenity extras. They talk about the many ways that Firefly has affected their lives. The cast and crew also share humorous and insightful experiences. Written by Done The Impossible

A doc for anyone interested in the power of fandom!
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This doc belongs on your shelf right next to your "Firefly" set and your copy of "Serenity". Actually, it belongs between them. Because this is really the story of how fan passion helped lead from a canceled show to a movie, and beyond.

This is a fine, polished film on its own merits. But it is an absolute must for Firefly fans or anyone interested in the push a dedicated fandom can give to a beloved sci-fi property.

The film's makers secured cast members for interviews - a big piece of work on its own.

(And the soundtrack is just kick-butt, to boot!)
