    I thought this movie was pretty damn good. I remember the kinda underground buzz that the tv show Firefly got, but I never checked it out. Is it like the movie? Any opinions on it?

    Seems like one of those cool things that gets overlooked because most people are tasteless :yell: :fish:

    Firefly is an incredible series.

    You can get the DVD set for $25-40 depending on how you shop it.

    I started watching Firefly about a year ago (after it was cancelled)
    I liked the show

    picked up Serenity - thought it was put together very well - great movie

    I think the entire FireFly series is available in one set for less than $40
    highly recommended
    it's a shame noone felt enough about the show to give it proper backing
    at least it's still a HUGE hit @ Comicon

    The only reason there was a movie at all was the great sales of Firefly DVDs. It was cancelled by Fox, but they put the series out on DVD and so many people bought it, Fox figured it might be worth something after all.

    Sadly the movie didn't make them any money at the box office. You can bet that the series is done (at least in terms of TV and movies).

    Fox TV execs suck. They also killed another great show the next year, Wonderfalls.

    What is it with Fox? All the shows they kill off sell well on DVD

    Actually, Universal made the movie in a deal that let FOX keep the small screen rights.

    It basically made its money back at box, so the DVD and "rest of the world" screenings were icing on the cake. It did make NBC-U a little money.
