In all honesty, I was a bit skeptical about watching Joss Whedon's Firefly at first. A sci-fi Western hybrid television series did not sound too appealing to me. Space cowboys? I didn't think so... but I gave it a try anyway. As usual, I played catch up by watching Firefly's only season on DVD. I grew to like it after a couple of episodes, although I still find the concept odd.
Episodes 1 (pilot) and 2 are available on Hulu (free online viewing). I've posted the pilot episode below. You can watch all of season one with Hulu Plus.
In desperate times, the crew of Serenity is transporting passengers to another planet, only to discover that one of them has smuggled something strange in their cargo.
