Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Mal and Zoë meet Jayne for the first time, every close-up of Mal and the one close-up of Zoë shows their hair blowing in the wind. But in the shots of them together, their hair is completely still.
Though it's almost become a cliche to say, it's the truth... Joss Whedon's "Firefly" is by and large one of the best television series to emerge over the past twenty years, and the fact it was cancelled after only one season is a genuine tragedy. The series' blend of science fiction and western sensibilities is refreshing and unique, making each one of its fourteen episodes a complete blast from start to finish. Add to that one of the best ensemble casts ever put to screen, and witty writing that expertly combines both humor and drama, and you have a recipe for success that unfortunately just never got the chance to flourish. If you haven't seen the show and are worried the hype may have ruined it for you, do yourself a favor and give a chance. It doesn't just meet expectations... it shatters them. "Firefly" easily earns a perfect 5 out of 5.
Trivia: Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Adam Baldwin, and Alan Tudyk all later played villains on Joss Whedon's other Mutant Enemy productions: Fillion appeared as Caleb in the final five episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," while Torres played Jasmine in season four of "Angel" and Baldwin played Marcus Hamilton in season five. Tudyk played Alpha in "Dollhouse".
