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

Boring
1 December 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Story of the creation and cancellation of the infamous Firefly, this documentary interviews some of the cast and hardcore fans of the series.

To be honest I only made to the first 45 minutes of this, hopping to find some change in the mechanics of the documentary; I was wrong.

This was a cheap attempt to lure the Firefly/Serenity Fans. The only thing here are interviews poorly edited with some fans and cast.

I was disappointed because I followed with enthusiasm Firefly/Serenity and hoped to find a little gem here.

Boring boring boring...
