A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, Dr Rob "you heard it here first" Matthews sent us a copy of Firefly - the first series, which, according to the users of IMDB (Earth's Largest Movie Database tm) rates at an impressive 9.5/10 a rare feat indeed. We had never seen such a rating.

C/F from IMDB's top 250 :-

The Godfather 9.1
The Shawshank redemption 9.1
The Godfather 2 8.9
LOTR 8.8
The good, The bad, & the ugly 8.8

Whilst not agreeing that it tops all these, it was a damn good show, axed under suspicious circumstances by the studio, Fox.

Kim, Hari and I were gutted at the end of the last show, and spent the next hour mooching around, looking at the "special features" on the DVD, and wiki'ing. Then we bought Serenity, the film of the series.
It's hard to believe that such a good show was axed, and hard to accept that no new episodes will be made. There is , however, a faint hope that a series of films
starring the original cast will follow.
If you haven't, I urge you to buy it now.
