‘Firefly’ reviews

John’s “Firefly” flashback review, johnvhansen.com, May 12, 2013

***

“Firefly” (2002-03, Fox), episodes 1-11 – As Joss Whedon slumped a bit with “Buffy” and “Angel,” he launched a show that quickly became his best. He created a charming space Western with nine colorful — and expertly cast — characters aboard a smuggling ship. Aside from the immortal “Star Trek” franchise, small screen space dramas appear to be dead.
