Viral Video: Firefly Intro 80’s Style

by Dan Koelsch

Firefly is one of my favorite shows in television history, despite it lasting for only 14 episodes.

One of the (many) reasons the space western failed to gain a mainstream audience may have been due to its slow and “uncool” opening sequence. io9 tries to improve on the credits scene by giving it an 80s style. Take a look after the jump.




Here’s the original opening credits sequence, which I love, with “Ballad of Serenity”.
