Firefly (Complete series, plus follow-up movie, Serenity, available via Netflix)
Similar to Fringe, Firefly is another sci-fi epic that aired on FOX. Unlike Fringe, however, Firefly only got to air 14 episodes on the network instead of 100. But what a great 14 episodes they are. While it’s clear that Joss Whedon still had a lot of story to tell about his group of space outlaws (the show is literally a space Western, and if you don’t think that sounds cool then I feel sorry for you), but what he got to share with us was still pretty freaking great. Plus, there is some conclusion to Firefly thanks to its 2006 follow-up film, Serenity, which I would highly recommend to anyone who digs this cult classic show.
