It's been 10 years since Fox pulled the plug on Joss Whedon's dream project Firefly, but Whedon said the 4,000+ crowd that packed into Comic-Con's Ballroom 20 Friday for an anniversary celebration reminded him it was all worth the fight.

Last year, Blastr did a feature on 18 of the most memorable speeches from sci-fi and fantasy films. It included clips from Independence Day, Avatar, Star Trek, The Dark Knight and more. Many of you suggested we do a TV version, and today you've got your wish. Here are 18 memorable speeches from sci-fi and fantasy television that salutes shows like Lost, Doctor Who,Twin Peaks, and Firefly.

Thanks to the 4th of July we get a little bit slimmer schedule than usual, but there's still some interesting things going on.

We'll also get marathons from The Twilight Zone and Firefly.
Firefly's Nathan Fillion naked as his name day? Yep, you read that right. Well, not exactly. Actually, it's an interesting work of geek art that has some of us all aflutter and that most of you will recognize... and you definitely got to see it to believe it!
Some sci-fi friendships seem like they were always meant to be. Han and Chewie? Kirk and Spock? Perfect matches, right? But then there are those unexpected friendships that shouldn't have happened—but seemed oh so perfect when they did. Get up close and personal with 10 pairs of unlikely pals in the second episode of our new digital series, BlastrTV.
It was probably only a matter of time before someone took two of Joss Whedon's most beloved creations—his late, lamented sci-fi western and his recent, ginormous Marvel movie—and crammed them together. And damn if the result doesn't just make you want more of both.
If you like Jewel Staite as Kaylee from Firefly and Serenity and Dr. Jennifer Keller from Stargate: Atlantis, you'll love the REAL Jewel Staite! That's why we're so pleased she's agreed to join us regularly here at Blastr to answer your questions and share whatever happens to be on her mind. Yep, they're still asking me to do this. How are you, Internets? Miss me?
