I'm not going to say Firefly is a bad show, but I'm going to say it's a good show either. It simply wasn't long enough and didn't really finish anything to be really judged as a show. But if you were just going to look at what was there, then it fails to impress. The characters weren't that developed or characterized beyond their two word stereotypes and we've seen them before, the world was unexplained, the action wasn't great and the acting wasn't superb. It was funny, not comedy funny, but very funny for a non-comedy, the dialogue was alright, and there were clever ideas, just unexplored and unexplained. The biggest blessing and largest annoyance is the cancellation of the show, there were so many interesting ideas and intriguing characters that if explored, I'm sure could be awesome, or Joss would drop the ball and ruin it, you don't know, and most people see the awesome future instead of the just as probable terrible one. I guess people are just hopeful. The main point of this review isn't really to review the show, it wasn't finished so reviewing it seems pretty stupid, all these words come from what I saw, and it didn't blow me away, the main point is to raise the question, why is this worshiped the way it is? Why did this not so outstanding show get the support it does? What did you see, in the show, that made it so great? What about this show, that isn't that original, make it so fantastic and incredible?
