Ep. 04-06: Serenity (2005)

Picking up where the television series Firefly (2002) left off, a group of rebels travels the outskirts of space aboard their ship Serenity, outside the reach of the Alliance, a sinister regime that controls most of the universe. After the crew takes in Simon (Sean Maher) and his psychic sister, River (Summer Glau), whom he recently rescued from Alliance forces, they are pursued by the Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor), an Alliance agent who will stop at nothing to find them.

Episode 6 Serenity

Space, where the rare sci-fi television series is sometimes revived into a successful movie franchise. And though Serenity (2005) will probably spawn no further sequels, it is a substantial and enjoyable revisit in the world of a show that was canceled too soon. Join us as we discuss the series’s roots, its talented showrunner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer 1997-2003), the cast, and their noble attempt at closure. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys boards Serenity, on what begins as a rollicking pirate adventure but quickly evolves into a mission of humanity’s endurance against the evil alliance.
