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

Only watch it if you really really love Firefly
11 August 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I read this on IGN, and when I saw the documentary, I understood why. "Only watch it if you really really love Firefly" and it's true, because, honestly, I love Firefly. I really do, but I still often go "it's just a TV-show" while watching it. The biggest reason why is mostly because I can't really relate to any people that much. I admit that I'm a nerd, but I'm a different nerd from most people there (who are not all nerds btw, but so different from me).

Although the story behind Firefly is great, I loved the extras on the Firefly and Serenity DVDs more. When I saw those things, and heard of the story behind it, I had never felt so proud owning a box of DVDs. But the story behind it, how they was destined for doom before it even had a chance to show what it's got, and how the fans understood that, and so many did, and many other put so much effort in bringing it back. It's nice, but they go too deep into the details.
