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 wonderful, well-made documentary.
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful documentary all around, for fans of Firefly, or of SF in general. There are some moments in the cast interviews I especially enjoyed. Of particular interest is the film's soundtrack, which is all original music by fans of the series; there's a great deal of talent in the collection of musicians on this DVD.

Firefly was a very special television show, inspiring more than just a sense of fandom in its viewers. Joss Whedon's work touched many people in very meaningful ways. This documentary shows the special relationship between Joss, the cast, and the fans that came out of this amazing and rare collaboration.
