For the A to Z Challenge, I am sticking with my normal blogging topics – Monday (parenting), Wednesday (Quotes) and Thursday (writing/publishing). But for the rest of the days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I have picked the theme of TV shows.
Today the letter is F which is for short-lived Fox TV show – Firefly. This was a space western that premiered in Fall of 2002 and lasted only one season of fourteen episodes. Though it was cancelled during that first season, Firefly and Serenity, the movie based on the series, have a large cult following.
Firefly was set in the year 2517 and followed the lives of the crew of a firefly-class spaceship, Serenity. It was a mix of science fiction with the space travel and a western in the manner of character dress and the fact that they used guns reminiscent of the Wild West.
I did not watch Firefly when it originally aired but was introduced to it probably seven years ago. My husband and I liked it so well, we own the series as well as the movie. If you haven’t seen it, I definitely think it is worth a look. This is a show I wish they hadn’t cancelled.
