A lot of people criticize sci-fi shows for making small errors, like when shadows are different between two shots, and we try to give those a pass. But then there are the errors so blatant we HAVE to sit up and take notice. We have absolutely no explanation for why nobody caught these hilarious goofs in classic sci-fi films and TV programs.
One way writers, filmmakers and game designers give depth and richness to the worlds they create is by laying that world out on paper—such as with these renderings of worlds like Middle-earth, Narnia and Gotham City.
There are some people who act as sort of entertainment pied pipers: Something just makes us follow them from project to project, occasionally getting us to watch stuff we never would otherwise. Here are some of our favorites: heroes, villains, Whedonverse alums and deserted island survivors.
Imagine, for a moment, an alternate universe in which Joss Whedon's sci-fi western wasn't cut down after its full-of-promise first season and, instead, ran for as long as its creators wanted it to. I think that universe would suck.
If you were hoping the fan-created Help Nathan Buy Firefly campaign would, well, help Nathan Fillion buy Firefly ... looks it's not going to happen. And what ended the attempt to resuscitate Joss Whedon's show was a tweet from someone who should know.
Relationships break up for any number of reasons. Infidelity is a big one, as is not making time for each other. And then there are compatibility issues ... as seen in this hilarious and totally catchy music video.
Firefly fans (a.k.a. "Browncoats") have had it better than most fans of a brilliant-yet-cancelled series: we got something like closure, thanks to the feature film, Serenity (2005). The show is also rerunning on The Science Channel, with all-new commentary from scientist Michio Kaku.
If you were about to send some change Nathan Fillion's way so he could buy the rights to Firefly, better put it back in your pocket, because the former Capt. 'Mal' Reynolds would rather you keep the money for yourself.
As anyone who's been on the Internet for the last week knows, Nathan Fillion and Firefly are still attached at the hip. And, even though he's got a hit crime procedural on ABC, the once and future (if he has his way) Mal Reynolds can't help but sneak his love for Joss Whedon's cult hit into his new gig.
When Nathan Fillion announced yesterday he'd love to step into the tight pants of Capt. 'Mal' Reynolds again, we of course liked the idea, but also thought ... well, what's the chance of that? But today, now that a couple of Firefly writers chimed in to say they'd also climb on board a new Firefly in a heartbeat, we're instead asking—could there really be a chance of that?
