Serenity (2005 Film)
When Firefly was cancelled after only 11 episodes aired (way to go, Fox), it was the fan response that convinced Universal to give the film the green light. Joss rewarded us with a story that would have served as the plot line for the mythical Firefly: Season Two.
When an Alliance-devoted Operative learns that River was privy to a government-destroying secret, he sets out to capture her no matter the obstacle. But when River's "trigger" reveals her super soldier fighting skills, the Serenity crew has some questions of their own. Will the Operative capture the Tams before our crew can reveal the truth about Reavers?
Kristen and Mike discuss the reception of the film for non-Browncoats, what Mal believes in, and which characters were under-served.
PLUS! What's next for Kristen and Mike?
Bonus Episode: Mal Versus A Bear
Kristen and Mike take bets on who would win in ten theoretical Mal match-ups.
Objects In Space / Series Wrap-Up
In "Objects in Space", after River picks up a gun the crew discusses her danger to the rest of them. Meanwhile, a bounty hunter named Jubal Early sneaks onboard Serenity to apprehend the Tams. When River is not found on the ship, she announces that she has become Serenity. While Jubal tries to comprehend this, River forms a plan. Kristen and Mike discuss the existentialist themes of this episode, and compare and contrast River and Early.
We round out our Firefly discussion with our series wrap-up. Topics include: Yearbook Awards, In Memorium, Biggest Damn Hero, Favorite Episodes, Favorite Characters, and why Firefly was cancelled.

So far, so good
I am just now to season 4. I have really enjoyed this podcast so far. It’s fun listening to different opinions and insights about the show. Agreeing and disagreeing. And continually thinking “hmm I’ve never thought about that before.” Fun people.
Ok but too much nitpicking
This is a nice podcast, but they’re extremely nitpicky. By the time they get to season 7 it was too hard to listen to them because they’re constantly bashing the show, nitpicking everything, like “where are the potential families?” Who cares??? 🙄
The only Buffy media I’ve ever seen is the 1992 Luke Perry movie, but I LOVED SMG in 2011’s Ringer. Needless to say, I’m here for the FireFly, and boy-howdy do these crazy kids deliver! Kristen is a delight as the sweet & feisty pilot of this podcast, while Mike fills the laid-back calm, cool, co-pilot role expertly. Do yourselves a favor & subscribe.
