Firefly – Serenity
The sci-fi excellence that was Firefly was taken from us far too soon, after only fourteen episodes were produced. Luckily, fan outrage and some hard work by both show creators and Browncoats led to Serenity, a movie that wraps up most of the major storylines that had begun with the show. We find out why River’s nuts, see the origin of the Reavers, and finally get to see all of the hookups fans had been shipping for as long as the show was on. Being a Joss Whedon creation, it couldn’t end without some major deaths, but it’s hard to argue with Serenity being full of awesomeness.
