Never seen the show but very interested. What is the general tone of Firefly. Is it quite serious or humourous? Is it more like Star Trek (pretty straight laced and serious), Farscape (quite serious but bits of humour) or Lexx (General anarchy)?
Lemmee think… I’d say it’s most like Farscape, but less zany in the funny bits, less body humor, and no aliens. It feels a little like Farscape mixed with Space:Above and Beyond, which had darker atmosphere, more strained personal conflict, and military character backgrounds.
However, they were able to make mere humans more creepy and terrifying than many aliens in the last ep. Whew!
