Firefly , a short-lived space western TV show created by Joss Whedon, aired for four months in 2002 before it was cancelled by the Fox Broadcasting Company. The show developed a passionate fan base, known collectively as Browncoats.
Firefly was a BRILLIANT tv show. Getting pulled after only 14 episodes was a crime. Lucky for fans that Whedon et al came together for the film in 2005. Firefly and Serenity fans are like a secret club. For nerds with great taste.
