Editorial Reviews

Firefly and Serenity have grown beyond the genius of Joss Whedon. The words Firefly and Browncoat have come to symbolize a sense of community, family, and believing that the impossible can be accomplished. These concepts are at the very heart of Firefly and of its fans. Adam Baldwin hosts the telling of this vivid Browncoat story that features interviews with Joss Whedon, creator of Firefly and Serenity, the cast, crew, and most important, the fans themselves. ---> The story chronicles the rise, fall, and rebirth of the cult TV show "Firefly" as told from the perspective of the fans who helped save it. Fans of the TV show and movie share what inspired them to become passionate about Firefly, to help save Firefly, attend shindigs, participate in message boards, donate to charities, and become Serenity extras. They talk about the many ways that Firefly has affected their lives. The cast and crew also share humorous and insightful experiences. ---> Hosted by Adam Baldwin, Voice-Over by Jewel Staite and featuring interviews with cast, crew and dozens of fans like you, including: Alan Tudyk, Christina Hendricks, Christopher Buchanan, Geoffrey Mandel, Greg Edmonson, Jewel Staite, Joss Whedon, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Loni Peristere, Margaret Weis, Mary Parent, Morena Baccarin, Nathan Fillion, Orson Scott Card, Rafael Feldman, Ron Glass, Tim Minear, Tracy Hickman, and Yan Feldman. ---> Interactive Timeline, Trivia Game, 'Verse Dictionary, What is Firefly? essay, Music Videos, Tribute to Lux, Charities Featurette, Commentary, and five shiny Easter Eggs. ---> The DVD-ROM features a highly innovative, media-rich experience, and includes: the Interactive Viewing Experience and 6+ hours of Extended Interviews. ---> Features unique music from the CD Soundtrack by these Celtic and filk artists: The Bedlam Bards, Brobdingnagian Bards, Dan Sehane, Emerald Rose, Michelle Dockrey, Rob Kuhlman, and Tony Fabris.

Bottom line: BUY THIS DVD!
Bob Littlepage
Come to think of it, maybe I am a browncoat, because I found myself totally agreeing with the end credits song, "I want my trilogy".
Tek2000
This is very funny and well done.

First, I have a confession to make. Unlike many "Firefly" fans, I had never even heard of Joss Whedon when the show premiered on Fox in the Fall of 2002. I was not a member of the existing "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" fan base that anxiously awaited Whedon's latest offering--I had never seen either show. I did enjoy "Firefly" for the brief time that it aired (although I missed a few episodes), but I didn't really appreciate it until it was too late. I didn't get hooked until after I bought the complete series DVD set and saw "Serenity" on the big screen.

I was a little hesitant about buying "Done the Impossible" at first, since I didn't think a "fan-produced" DVD could possibly have much to offer. Was I ever wrong! Every "Firefly" fan should have this. It may be a little too deep, esoteric or complicated for a casual viewer who just happened to catch a couple of episodes, or for someone who went to see "Serenity" for lack of something else to do. But if you've invested the time and energy to watch all of the episodes repeatedly, to learn the culture and terminology of the `Verse, to read the "Companion" books--then you need "Done the Impossible."

The main feature of the DVD portion of the single-sided disk is a 79-minute documentary, with scene selections, that tells the story of the rise and fall of "Firefly." There's also an ultra-cool interactive audio/video timeline, a `Verse dictionary (in very small print that's a little hard to read on a normal-size television), a trivia game, commentaries, some music videos and other extras. Presented in a very clever multi-window format, the DVD/ROM portion has over six hours of interviews, commentaries, music, factoids, biographies of cast, crew and fans, you name it.

Don't let the fact this is a 'fan produced' documentary about the Firefly/Serenity phenon. put you off.

This is a high-quality dvd, with good special features too boot. It has interviews with a large number of fans who were touched and worked not only to get the cancelled series to the big screen but also worked for charities along the way. Most of the members of the cast are part of the DVD, as well as the creator, Joss Whedon.

If you love the series, you owe it to yourself to check this out - you'll probably find it emotionally moving. If you've only caught a couple of episodes of the show, or just the movie - you'll still want to check it out, because this is a compelling story about fans keeping a show they love alive, and something that's never been done before - EVER.

Bringing a cancelled TV show to a major motion picture.

Man, I miss the show.

Excellently written and edited documentary. Professional quality video and audio all the way through. Moved along swiftly with chapters starting with clever and appropriate series quotes in white print on full black screen. For example, Jayne's "Time for some thrilling heroics". Almost no duplication of special features from the Firefly and Serenity DVD to the best of my recollection. Adam Baldwin was surprisingly easy to believe as a serious host even though his character in the movie is very different. I had to laugh when he says that some "fan fiction is kind of creepy". Could he mean some of the Jayne/Mal or Jayne/Simon "slash" fiction out there? I am also wondering why "Simon" and "River" didn't appear more.

The DVD-ROM special features require Apple Quicktime. That's a shame, because everytime I've installed quicktime, I've regretted it when I tried to remove it. It's like a boot sector virus and won't go fully away. I don't install it anymore regardless of the temptation. Why not provide a Windows solution?
[Added 14Apr07: I withdraw this objection as commenters note that Qtime is freely available on both Macs and Windows platforms so is a valid choice. Also, for those who do not like Apple's Qtime, commenters point out a great alternative, QuickTimeAlt.]

I'm not really a "browncoat" as the Serenity and Firefly fans call themselves, but do like the series and movie. I really enjoyed the documentary since it showed the cast and crew "off-screen" and you got the feeling that this team put their hearts and souls into the series and the movie. Come to think of it, maybe I am a browncoat, because I found myself totally agreeing with the end credits song, "I want my trilogy".

I bought this as a gift for my husband because we both love Firefly and it got such great reviews. I hate to give anything associated with Firefly a low review, especially something created by fans (who are awesome), but I have to say we were both a bit disappointed.

This documentary was created before Serenity was released. Watching the documentary was like going to a convention. It was mostly interviews with people (some at conventions) who love the show. Some of the actors and people involved in the making the series and movie also spoke. The interviews explained the history of what happened, giving some insights here and there, but mostly just talking about how much they loved Firefly.

A lot of the positive reviews were probably riding the wave of emotion after the cancellation of the show and during the anticipation of the movie. If I'd gotten this DVD then, I probably would've loved it as well. It's like chicken soup for the sad fan's soul. But given that it's now several years after the height of the Firefly frenzy, the documentary feels tonally out of place. While the unbridled browncoat love was nice, I was looking for more insider info and nostalgia.
