Excellent - More Info!

The Firefly Companion Vol 1 is well worth every penny (and makes ordering Vol 2 when it comes out a "no-brainer"). Six scripts are included, but the real gems are the articles on the characters. These are in "light brown" in the table of contents so easily overlooked in your rush to see what is included. All through the book are excellent, clear close up photos of many props. This is really a must have for the serious Firefly fan.


"Firefly" is simply the greatest television show of all time. Created by Joss Whedon -- the genius behind "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (the second greatest TV show of all time), and "Angel" -- "Firefly" is both brilliant and unique: It is a sci-fi western, with wonderful characters, compelling storylines, and (of course) Joss Whedon's trademark witty dialogue. "Firefly" is one of the few shows that I love watching over and over again; and never seem to get tired of. If you've never seen "Firefly" you owe it to yourself to check it out on DVD. Of course, if you HAVE seen "Firefly" then you already know just how amazing the show really is. So, you're definitely going to want to get your hands on the "Firefly Official Companion, Vol. 1". This full-color, glossy book is packed with photos from the show; as well as photos and sketches of props and costumes. More importantly, it has the full shooting scripts for the episodes "Serenity", "The Train Job", "Bushwhacked", "Shindig", "Safe", and "Our Mrs. Reynolds". It also includes comments from the cast and crew, and profiles of the main characters and actors; as well as interviews with series-creator and executive producer Joss Whedon, and costume designer Shawna Trpcic. Plus, it has features on the design and creation of Mal's pistol and browncoat, and Zoe's pistol and vest. "Firefly" fans will not be disappointed with this book. And, if you've never seen "Firefly", go ahead and get the book anyway: It's a great introduction to the show. (Of course, don't forget to order the DVD boxed set, too. And then be sure to check out the movie "Serenity" -- the motion picture finale to the "Firefly" series -- which is also available on DVD.)

Nice job!

Beautiful book with a wealth of juicy, behind-the-scenes detail. I especially recommend this volume if you are interested in creating Mal or Zoe costumes. It practically has a how-to guide on Mal's gun, as well as info on his holster and coat, and Zoe's gun, holster, and vest. Lots of detailed pictures of props (money, weapons, badges, licenses) as well.

Just Can't Get Enough

Fantastic companion to the show. Love the interviews, the insight, the production art...absolutely first rate. Truly a testament to the greatest TV show ever made. Can't wait for Volume Two...bring it on Joss! And to the clueless TV networks that refuse to open their eyes and bring this gem of a show back to life: listen to the sound of my coin dropping for yet another piece of Firefly merchandise...

Can't wait for Vol. 2

Since we can no longer have Firefly, the series, except what we were able to get on DVD, this is a "fix" for a longtime fan of this wonderful story. I would have like to have had even more comments from the cast, maybe even a full-fledged interview with each of them, as they did with the creator of the show, Joss Whedon. I look forward to the next volume and still am ever hopeful that at some point in the near future, one of the networks will realize what a great series this was and still could be. My family misses this show to this day. What terrific casting and storytelling.
