Investigating Firefly and Serenity Summary


Investigating Firefly and Serenity: Science Fiction on the Frontier by Rhonda V. Wilcox

Joss Whedon, probably the first recognised TV auteur, who brought us Buffy and Angel, is also the creator of the remarkable space Western "Firefly" and the major Firefly film "Serenity". "Firefly" ran for twelve hour-long episodes in 2002 before being cancelled by the network. But this premature burial had an extraordinary outcome: the fans - self-named Browncoats - just kept multiplying, buying the dvds, keeping the show alive with blogs, fan fiction, podcasts, their own films, meetings, conferences; their numbers increased when the major Firefly motion picture 'Serenity' was released in 2005.This book is the definitive one on both "Firefly" and "Serenity". It is ambitious, in-depth and comprehensive, covering all aspects, from detailed chapters on scenes and themes, through explorations of the music, the characters, actors and fans. It is written by over 20 of the best US and international Whedon scholars, tv and film critics and writers. It's the must-have book for followers of Whedon and his works and for students of quality and cult tv.
