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

Wonderful
15 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Firefly & Serenity and I loved this film. It is very positive and uplifting and it reminds me of how how big an accomplishment the Browncoats accomplished in getting Serenity. I have shown it to people who have never seen Firefly before, and they enjoyed it. It got them curious and interested in finding out what was behind it.

The film itself is beautifully made. Lots of great original music and the soundtrack is well worth having. The DVD has tons of extras and is packed full of details. The filmmakers were open minded enough to release the documentary under a Creative Commons license, so it can be viewed (without the special extra features) for free.
