Although I've only watched a once through of the "Firefly" series on DVD a couple years ago, I did enjoy the series. This is a very fun companion guide to this series with all sorts of pictures, insightful first impressions from the actors about their characters and little tidbits of information, along with the scripts, for a few of their most memorible episodes.If you're a fan of this regretably short-lived series I'd highly recommend this!

A companion volume to the late, lamented television series.If you're a Firefly fan, this book is most definitely worth your time. It's chock full of great stuff, including an interview with Joss Whedon, discussions with the cast, behind-the-scenes tidbits, tons of photos and - best of all - annotated shooting scripts.I really got a lot out of these scripts. The annotations are great; they cover all aspects of the production, from costumes and props to the actor's experiences on set. It was also really interesting to read the translations for the Chinese dialogue. And of course, having the scripts set out in such a way provided a welcome chance to slow down and really look at the way the show is put together. I found it fascinating.All in all, the book left me eager to watch the show again. Definitely recommended.

This slick-looking volume contains the uncut shooting scripts for six episodes interspersed with interviews, short articles on the props and costuming, and lots of pretty pictures. The scripts turned out to be a lot of fun to read, not just because the episodes themselves are fun, but also because the scripts, particularly Joss Whedon's, feature some entertainingly colorful descriptions. Recommended for Firefly fans.
