Gritty science fiction and fun fast-paced cowboy stories blended with an excellent ensemble, Fun dialogue and surprising twists and turns at times. It is a series with the heart in the right place and I love the excellent effects. Sadly, Fox never gave it a chance on screen never giving all characters a good enough back-story due to its short time on the air which is a shame. Deserves all the attention it has gotten.
Story that lagged in the middle (I presumed it's when the studio forced the series to be more action-comedy), and the Noughties era special effect, but I easily fell in love with this. I'm not a Whedon's TV fan, but I really was surprised on the complexity of characters in here. Mal is not the usual anti hero lovable bastard, he's an asshole, and a tyrant. And Zoe is just...the cinema hero I have been waiting for.
