A To Z Challenge: Firefly "Inara's Suite"


For my first A to Z Challenge ever, I'm highlighting a favorite track from various science fiction and fantasy movies, games, and TV shows. Feel free to press play and listen while you visit other A to Z participants.

I couldn't allow this challenge to come and go without giving a nod to Joss Whedon's sci fi classic Firefly, which sadly amounted to only one season (networks are fickle like that). This track in particular from composer Greg Edmonson always takes me to a far away place.



There will be a new track tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Love that music. Scifi rules. I'm enjoying the theme you've picked, David. Thanks for the musical moment!

  3. That is gorgeous! I always think it's interesting how the music of a show can hide in the background until you actually listen to the soundtrack itself. I'm sure I've heard this song before, but I didn't notice it until now. Thanks for the music!

  5. That's a beautiful song. Shame they cancelled that series when they did. I bet they wouldn't tell Whedon no now.

  10. Loved this series, which I discovered after watching and loving Serenity.

  11. Shiny! Joss Whedon talked about all the secrets associated with Inara's shuttle, and won't reveal them unless he makes more Serenity films. Fingers crossed.

  12. Only saw the movie but heard lots of good things about the series. The actress that moved on to USA Suits is amazing though.

  13. I never saw Firefly but I love the music. It's haunting.

  14. My dad loved Firefly. Somehow its network run passed him by, but he discovered the dvds with alacrity. I haven't seen it yet myself, but I live under a rock that's actually a network of caves leading to other dimensions. Exploring them doesn't leave a lot of time for television(not if I want to game as well). Enjoying the music shares! :)

  15. Very haunting. Ok, I have to admit, I am not into SciFi or Fantasy, but I am willing to give them a try. I suppose part of it is that (ahem) I am older and don't see my self in the future? Thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. Thanks for calling by the blog it was very kind of you . . . WOW you have some serious follower numbers. . . I think I would find that a bit scary.

    As for Firefly I have never heard of it . . . But maybe that's because I am in Britain. Good luck on the journey to Z

  18. Still one of the best shows I have ever watched. I enjoying seeing the cast anytime they are on another show. Like Castle or Hannibal.

  19. Cancelled way to soon. I can't believe another network didn't pick up the series. Would have been great on the big screen too.

  20. I never managed to see Firefly. What a shame it only lasted for one season. I'm a fan of Joss Whedon so I think would have liked it. That track is beautiful, great choice.

  21. Ah... Firefly. One of the best shows that barely was.

    I've heard this song before. I know it only has Inara in the name, but this melancholy tune makes me think of the romance that never was between her and Mal. It was something that existed maybe in another space and time. In another lifetime. Another destiny. Possibly another season if the show weren't cancelled. But, it makes me feel things lost and things that never were... soulful and sad.

  22. we love this so much at our house we own the series. It was interesting when Josh said it was hard directing...what was it,.9? major characters or something like that, but didn't he rock it? Love that show and Serenity too! Beautiful selection, thank you, jean

  23. I love Firefly. My friends don't understand why I get excited about Firefly rerun marathons, but not like. . . Pretty Little Liars. Or whatever they watch. ;)

  24. I haven't seen Firefly but, this music is hauntingly beautiful.

  25. I've never been able to get into Firefly, despite loving just about everything Joss does. The score is absolutely gorgeous though.

  28. I have the Firefly DVD package. I need to chase the family out of the house (maybe have a "here's Johnny!" moment?) and just watch that whole thing start to finish.

  37. I love Firefly, this is the only Firefly post I've seen this year, last year there were a few. I wish they hadn't cancelled it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awww yeah! This is what I'm talking about! Great selection. I'm glad you got some Firefly up, I'm a huge fan. I've actually had this post up for a few day, and have listened to this entry multiple times.

    Even the Ladyfolk liked it. Perhaps I can convince her to give the show a shot now...
