Though ratings are rarely the best way to determine a show’s specific impact on society at large, each year’s top-rated shows often lack a surprising number of much-talked-about series, and here are 7 shows whose fame was far more prevalent by word-of-mouth over eyes-on-screens.
I may have to check my calendar, but I’m pretty sure it’s a day that ends in “Y,” as evidenced by Gotham adding yet another cast member that can safely be described as a villain. And this one comes from the comics, but with a twist.
We’ve used our pocket tractor beam to draw in the 10 funniest science fiction series out there. As well, we're using the reverse beam to deflect all opposing views. Grab your favorite towel and read on.
Just a few weeks ago, Firefly alums Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion put together an awesome viral campaign to jumpstart a new TV project called Con Man. The campaign was incredibly successful, and Con Man is already moving forward, and this is how the Firefly crew might get involved.
They are animated programs, coming of age programs, and everything running the gamut in between. These are shows that have stuck with us long after their 12-episode, 22-episode or whatever episode runs have ended and that we wish could come back for one last hurrah.
Indeed, the universe is vast and dangerous and to accommodate our slothful requirements, we’re going to need a list of 5 very aesthetically different candidates in our search for the most excellently tranquil of transports. So, on that note, let’s look at the 5 science fiction spaceships we'd love to live in.
There are presumably millions of people out there who still mourn the TV passing of Firefly, sometimes humbly and sometimes annoyingly. Stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion are calling out to that same science fiction-loving fanbase to help get their next project off the ground.
HBO’s Game of Thrones proved that TV works in IMAX theaters, with a run of highly lucrative IMAX screenings this past weekend. And you can bet this won't be the last time something like that happens. Here are five shows that we think need to head to IMAX next.
Science fiction and television should, technically speaking, be in perfect harmony. Science fiction deals with what-if scenarios, which have played out beautifully in such classic pulp science magazine as Galaxy, Astounding Science Fiction and Fantasy & Science Fiction. Television, on the other hand, thrives when it exploits serial storytelling, and is perfect for the anthology series.
Limited and "event" series are on the rise these days, and as evidenced by 24's anticipated return, the format is an intriguing option as it relates to TV show comebacks, as it doesn't require a long-term commitment for those involved in making it, or the network looking to get it on the air.Firefly's Tim Minear thinks that format would be preferable if ever the series were to make its way back to television.
TV fans have seen a few rays of hope in the last year or so. Shows that were cancelled long ago have been given a reprieve in some form or another.

Meanwhile, in just a matter of weeks, Arrested Development will return with a new season after a seven-year hiatus. It seems almost too good to be true, and at the same time, it's given fans hope that maybe other gone-but-not-forgotten series have a shot at a comeback...
Fox doesn’t want you knitting your own hats, Firefly fans. Or, to be more accurate, they don’t want you selling your homemade knitted hats. In the past few weeks the giant broadcasting company has started coming down on anyone who makes and sells the hand-knitted orange hat worn by Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) in an episode of the short-lived Fox series that aired over a decade ago.
Since Firefly became such a cult phenomenon, Gina Torres and Nathan Fillion should have had plenty of excuses to run into one another at conventions and the like. However, now the two will meet back up on the small screen, with Torres joining Fillion’s starring vehicle, Castle, for a special episode. I hope the two characters will maintain the verbal report they had on the series, but one thing’s for certain, Torres will not be playing Fillion’s second-in-command.
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.
