Last July, the Science channel announced that they would be airing a tenth anniversary special for Joss Whedon's beloved sci-fi series Firefly this November. Well, November is nearly upon us and Science hasn't forgotten their promise! The channel followed up today with a fresh reminder that Firefly: Browncoats Unite is set to air next month, and some updates on what will be featured.
In one of the most emotion moments I'd ever seen shared with some 5,000 people, Joss Whedon held back tears trying to come up with something to say when he was asked how he felt about fandom. As the camera pushed in and the director of the highest grossing movie of the year choked up, someone yelled "We Love You" and the fans slowly built a supportive cheer that grew into a standing ovation.
Hello Browncoats. You know why we're here. It's the Comic Con 10th Anniversary Firefly Reunion with Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Sean Maher, and Summer Glau. Will there be news now that Joss Whedon has the power of The Avengers behind him? Serenity 2? New Comics? SOMETHING? Let's find out!
Science has already proven that it's "aiming to misbehave" by getting the Firefly cast back together for a ten-year anniversary panel at Comic Con this year. Those in attendance of the San Diego-set event will have the opportunity to see the cast reunited for a panel on Friday. And today the cable channel announced that they're going to premiere an anniversary special celebrating the beloved Joss Whedon-created sci-fi series.
2012 marks the ten year anniversary of the short-lived but beloved Joss Whedon sci-fi drama Firefly. Not surprisingly, this event will not go ignored at Comic Con this year. In fact, the Serenity crew is reuniting for a panel at the San Diego-set convention. Details on that ahead along with Science's plans for the Dark Matters panel.
Firefly was one of televisionís finest examples of an ensemble of characters driving a story one memorable moment at a time. Each second was packed with the love, loyalty, hilarity, and pain that one would assume is the life of a crew eking out a questionably honest living in space. This was all done in the show-donít-tell style that is sorely missing from most stories littering the airwaves today.
File this one under "brash speculation" and feel free to administer whatever salt you have on hand, but it's certainly fun to think about. A couple of days ago comic writer Marc Bernardin posted a piece on his blog entitled "Could Netflix Bring Firefly Back From the Dead?" In it, Bernardin points to Netflix's resurrection of canceled cult-classic series Arrested Development as precedent to suggest that the answer is a solid...maybe.
Firefly may not have gotten the five-year run it deserved, but just be thankful that 20th Century Fox didn't scrimp on the series set. Pop it in and revisit one of the best goram science fiction shows of the past decade.
While Firefly went underappreciated by the masses on the big and small screen, it still has some of the most devoted fans out there, as evidenced by this attempt to buy the rights to the series.
The world of television is ever changing. Mostly having to do with reality stars and their ďwill they, wonít theyĒ contract signing drama. But thereís a lot going on each week in TV, and not all of itís good
Firefly may be long gone as a television series, but that doesn't mean its rabid fans, or Browncoats, have to ever really say goodbye. In a new book coming May 2010, fans are treated to new stories written by the original series writers
This past decade has seen some of the biggest leaps in TV innovation. It will be remembered for the advent of DVR and online streaming, for genre redefining shows like The Office and Dexter
It's not easy being a badass (ask Chuck Norris). The cards are usually stacked against you, time is often running out and its often up to you to save the day. You have to leave your badass-stamp on the whole situation
Itís week 5 of Dollhouse Ratings Watch and we finally have some substantive good news. The DVR bump in viewers was nice, and gave hope that the show could continue. But for the first time ever the ratings for Dollhouse went up Friday night.
Some people say that the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is just another overrated TV show with an overly enthusiastic fanbase. Ok, maybe the second part is true. We who love Buffy (and Firefly, Angel and anything else that spawned from the mind of the great Joss Whedon) do tend to get a bit excited whenever the topic comes up (or whenever we find a way to bring it up).
