Title (Year): Firefly (2002, 2004)
GRS Rating: 5 of 5
Notable Cast: Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau
Duration: Each episode approximately 1 hr
Comments: The original TV program that inspired Serenity. Rogue stellar scavengers wander around doing jobs to stay alive and out of the reach of the Alliance. The program reminded me of the 1980s English sci-fi show Blake's 7, which has a similar premise but is more serious.
I recommend this show to anyone interested in science fiction TV. It's well done and thoughtful. Also, there's the occasional good one-liner.
