Re: Canceled Shows: If they were popular from the start

Let's see, if you consider Mal the primary hero, then this is a good logline: After fighting on the losing side of a civil war, a disillusioned smuggler is forced to revisit his ideals by a pair of innocent fugitives as he hides them from the oppressive government.

If you consider Simon the primary hero, then this could work: A naive, young doctor must trust mercenaries and smugglers, giving up everything he once believed, if he is to save his damaged sister from the government that made her into a weapon.

Either way, it is not that hard to boil Firefly down to one sentence.
