I discovered Joss Whedon’s sci-fi series Firefly backwards. I fell in love with the movie Serenity, which was the conclusion to the series. I am not the only fan, as the 3,431 five star customer reviews on Amazon attest to.
Watching the flick sent me hunting for the complete Firefly series, which came out last year on DVD. It was a must own for me — 11 episodes, plus 3 that never aired. I caught up with the entire series at 30,000 feet over the course of 3 months of work travel.
Now, Amazon is running their one day special on the Blu-Ray version for only $19 — about $5 less than they ran that special back in May. Add the Blu Ray Serenity ($11), and you have a killer $30 Blu Ray gift for the sci fi fan on your list.
If you are unfamiliar with Whedon’s oeuvre, you probably know his TV works (‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel).
