Why this show matters to me

The other element of the show I find so appealing is that, as Jewel Straite pointed out in an interview, it is a 'family' drama. Not a family drama in the 'well suited for family viewing' sense, but a poignant saga of love, loyalty, and sacrifice that gets at the heart of what 'family' is all about, and why it can be so completely important. Life can beat you down, take away everything and leave you lost, but if you have a family then you have hope. The fact the Malcolms family(crew) is so non-traditional only makes it that much more inspiring.
This show doesn't fit well into a genre, appropriate for a story of people who don't fit in, and that makes for quite a challenge in drawing viewers, but if we can convince people to look past their expectations, maybe there are enough of us 'outsiders' to keep Serenity flying.

Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe and Lao-Tzu, Einstein, Morobuto, Buddy Holly, Aristophanes... and all of this... all of this was for nothing unless we go to the stars."
