Friends, Streamers, Countrymen, I certainly hope you guys are Netflix users, because they’re the only ones with anything to show for themselves this week. So we won’t Cross the Streams so much as just concern ourselves with one specific stream. But what Netflix is offering is solid entertainment for all ages and all tastes, though I don’t think any one person is going to enjoy everything on this list. Feel free to make it a challenge, though. Winners are eligible for free high fives for life.
Done the Impossible: The Fans’ Tale of Firefly & Serenity (Netflix Instant)
Done the Impossible, its title taken from one of Mal’s quotes in the Firefly pilot, isn’t a behind-the-scenes documentary about Firefly and its feature follow-up Serenity so much as an almost obsessive love letter to the series from the fans who played a part in turning Joss Whedon into a geek god. Hosted by Adam Baldwin, the 2006 doc features talks with much of the cast and enormous fanbase, and shows just how big a role they played in getting the unlikely Serenity film made. Will it anger you that the same fanbase hasn’t been able to sway anyone to make more Firefly? Maybe.
