Only lasted 1 season 2002–2003, 14 episodes on Fox followed by the movie Serenity, Nathan Fillion (Castle) played the main character Malcolm Reynolds. Also stared Summer Glau from the Terminator TV Series, and Morena Baccarin from the recent V TV series.
I never even knew about the show but had watched Serenity, was recommended by friends to check out the TV show. Apparently it has a huge following, rumors of Fox sabotaging the show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefly_%28TV_series%29). Created by Joss Whedon, also known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse, Toy Story, Cabin in the Woods, and the recent Avengers movie.
It was fun to watch, though most episodes are kind of cheesy until episode 8 where it starts to give much more character building. And by the final episode I too was pissed Fox canned it prematurely!
