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

For and by the fans, and all that that implies
2 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best parts of "Done the Impossible" were hearing the cast and crew tell the story of "Firefly"'s life and death. It's nice to hear genuine sentiment from those that worked on the show, and know that it wasn't just a paycheck and a cancellation shrug when Fox pulled it. But this is the story told from an assortment of fans - which is an interesting idea for a documentary, but here its testimony from (seemingly) hundreds or random people, clips thrown together with little flow. Bouncing from one Browncoat to another. I don't know these people, and I've never had a religious experience with something like this (like they have), so the fandom was a turn-off. I know that's just me, but it's also why I didn't take to this.

Although it did make me want to watch the show again.

5/10
