Could the Firefly universe exist?

five episodes into "firefly:" a short analysis

so the thing about this show is like yeah the whole western-space-chinese fusion is a little far-fetched at times like yeah sometimes when the white people casually speak chinese it’s cringy and yeah sometimes the dialect is synonymous with a steel guitar and yEAH sometimes the costumes are the embodiment of the early 2000’s and that’s never okay but you know what

you got these characters that just work so well as a unit

you got these genuinely interesting subplots and a mythology that’s not impossible to fathom

and this cgi that can somehow remain steadfast 13 years later (partially because the practical effects and sets are so on point for any time period)

and you realize that yes it is utterly ridiculous, but it’s meant to be and that’s why people go so bloody bonkers over it

that’s why when you look at the IMDB page you’ll see a 9.2/10 rating after 150,000 votes

because it’s a show that makes you forget about technicality when you need to, simply because the story becomes more important

and that just doesn’t happen anymore
