Fire­fly

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 20 greatest tv shows -

It’s dif­fi­cult to think of Fire­fly with­out feel­ing a pang of grief for its short- lived ex­is­tence. But this plucky lit­tle space- opera West­ern cer­tainly did a lot in its short time on this Earth ( or off it). From Nathan Fil­lion’s im­pos­si­bly wise­cracky Cap­tain to Sum­mer Glau’s enig­matic River; to the vo­cal tics and phrases that lit­ter gor­ram popular cul­ture to this day; to the FX tricks and tropes that are now com­mon­place, Fire­fly lived up to its name. It lived a short life, but boy, did it burn bright.
