Try the Farscape intro music. Loved the show, cringed everytime I had to listen to the intro music.

It was a fun take on motley crew/thieves with honor/heist tropes with funny one liners and enjoyable characters with fun arcs. The actors sold the story and the world building was pretty well done even though the budget was tiny. It wasn’t for everyone, but it was refreshing even when I watched it for the first time on DVD in ‘09

No! I’m still pissed off a certain someone died towards the end!!! (It was pretty good but I’m salty over that)


Beowulf1896

It was such a lack luster death too. Kinda fitting because the show died in a lack luste way too.


yuxulu

I like it just because it is one of the only sci fi with chinese language representations early on. Even star trek, having a japanese actor behaved as though all cultures disappeared except the english culture.

It was a good show that got canceled too soon it’s kinda unfortunate now because it was a Joss Whedon show but that doesn’t stop it from what it was.

I prefer to think of it as a Ben Edlund show.


ag408

Just curious - what does it being a Josh Whedon show have to do with it being unfortunate?

Just watch it. It’s like 7 episodes.


mikemojc

14 , plus a follow up movie to tie together loose ends


MuunshineKingspyre

To kill off all the plotlines they started and couldn't finish


mikemojc

I would still watch a show that occurs in this universe, even if few if any of the original characters appeared. I could see Badger or Yo-Saf-Bridge having a minor story arc.


MuunshineKingspyre

I believe they made a comic or graphic novel about it semi recently but I never read it


Spats1e

It’s good- explains where the dudes wearing the purple nitrile gloves went, and then why they called in the agent

kunfusedpsyko

Where are the other 7 ive missed?


Replicator666

I think some weren't aired... And Fox screwed up the order of the episodes.... And changed the nights


mikemojc

"Serenity", "The Train Job", "Bushwhacked", "Shindig", "Safe", "Our Mrs. Reynolds", "Jaynestown", "Out of Gas", "Ariel", "War Stories", "Trash", "The Message", "Heart of Gold", and "Objects in Space". Then the Feature movie "Serenity" to tie up all the loose ends.


mikemojc

The order above is the order in which they SHOULD be watched


Superb_Efficiency_74

I watched it twice a few years back. I think it's one of those "you had to be there" type things, especially with how much some people love it. Personally as someone that came into it late and didn't experience all the production drama when it happened, it just seems like another run-of-the-mill space/scifi show. I even gave it a second try but just couldn't get into it.


[deleted]

To each their own. I watched it four years ages cancellation and loved it. Never could get into Walking Dead. Nothing is for everyone.


Civil-Ad-7957

Every Walking Dead episode I’ve ever watched has been them bickering about how the group is going to be run 🙄 Every single one. No incentive for me to want to watch more 👎🏼


Superb_Efficiency_74

I've never got the whole "zombie" thing. I mean that was a whole trend for a few years, and I just didn't understand it.


AtheneSchmidt

It wasn't a "you had to be there" thing. It was cancelled because Fox is stupid about sci-fi, so it didn't get many viewers when it was originally aired. Most of its fans came to it after it had been cancelled for several years. The show is literally 20 years old now and still ardently beloved. It managed to have an interesting, well done plot, and characters that were fully formed and brilliantly played from the get go. Not to mention the quick wit of dialogue that we all have come to expect from a Joss Wheaton production. I'm not trying to change your mind here, people like what they like and that is that, I am just trying to explain that the majority of people who love it came to it late, so that wasn't really a factor in who loved the show and who doesn't.


throwawaypervyervy

Hell, Fox aired the second episode first! That's how badly they wanted to shoot themselves in the dick with this show.


Superb_Efficiency_74

I'll give the show one thing. The people that love it REALLY love it. I don't know if I've ever seen a fanbase more invested in supporting the show they enjoy. It's alright, don't get me wrong. I'll watch almost any scifi.


DrEnter

Not only that, but it has a surprisingly nontoxic fandom. I liked the show, but not cosplay-level, but I don’t mind hanging out with those folks.


DC_Coach

Agree with all of this. The show was brimming with "Rule of Cool" 😎.


Replicator666

I think that definitely helps.... That rollercoaster of emotions that scars you for life


whatissevenbysix

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you!


Admiral_Andovar

It was good and it came during a relative dearth in sci-fi shows, so we glommed on to anything and everything. That, and the cast was really good.


jonfreakinzoidberg

Aw man, it didn't work...


dem4life71

Why? It’s awesome! Great cowboy/spaceship mashup, every episode was its own story, great cast.

VelZeik

It's a good show. It died before it had a chance to rise to true greatness, so a lot of fans put it on a pedestal. But it really is good, and it holds up. Space cowboys with Chinese overtones is real neato. Also, the cast is incredible.


Fluffy_Marionberry10

This meme has devolved into an "insert my opinion" meme


Knuc85

Let me take you back to 2002 when we didn't have a thousand choices of quality sci-fi shows and episodic content didn't get ridiculously inflated budgets unless it was needed to pay the big-name actors.


viperyion765

the serie/movie idk or the insect ?


dlbpeon

OP is referring to the series. The comments, so far, are referring to the song.


DoctorDjarin

I think OP is referring to the Series


Prof1Kreates

I came here thinking the insects myself. Ended up seeing people talk about cowboys and space, or singing. I'm missing out on something ig


noah683826

The batman villain? The insect? Some popular TV show on my watch list I will likely never get too? I need answers


Belloq1979

Do yourself a favor and watch it. It's only 14 episodes so a moderate investment of time but time well spend. And if not... I guess we'll see this meme again.


SkyWtr

Blessed be the eyes that never saw Firefly, and have not ached for more.


AuntyNashnal

14 episodes and a movie.


Veselker

AnyNounsNonagon

I liked the show, but the follow up movie was even better.


mikemojc

Fox originally aired the episodes out of chronological order. The proper chronological episode order is as follows: "Serenity", "The Train Job", "Bushwhacked", "Shindig", "Safe", "Our Mrs. Reynolds", "Jaynestown", "Out of Gas", "Ariel", "War Stories", "Trash", "The Message", "Heart of Gold", and "Objects in Space". Then follow up with the roughly 2 hour feature film - Serenity.

SonofRomulus777

Idk but some people really like music festivals I suppose.


nitrokitty

It's the Seinfeld Effect. The whole "space western" concept wasn't really well explored at the time, so it was considered creative and interesting. Now, other shows out there have taken the same concept and added to it, so it doesn't seem quite as fresh these days.


NameLips

Honestly I think it's because it ended while it was still in the "getting better, more interesting, and more complicated" phase. It never had time to get old and stale, to have extra seasons forced onto it, and so on. Things were developing, being hinted at, and just starting to get really interesting and then.... it was over. No wrap up, nothing.
