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?
Presented without comment.
If you like Jewel Staite as Kaylee from Firefly and Serenity and Dr. Jennifer Keller from Stargate: Atlantis, you'll love the REAL Jewel...
While fans have been debating who was the better smuggler, the Millennium Falcon's Han Solo or Serenity's Malcolm Reynolds, their universes have been crossing right under our noses.
We're ALL worried about what the move to Friday nights will mean for Fringe, but some of us are doing more about it than others. Take this awesome mash-up of the Firefly intro for example, which reminds us of the effects of the Friday night "death slot" that took out the earlier show—and will hopefully ward them off!
Those of us who watch Fringe (and we can count you among them, right?) might be worried about what the move to Friday nights will mean for the future, but the creators of the show seem to be having fun with it. They've defended the switch, given an earlier cancelled series a shout-out, and now they've created a TV ad acknowledging all our fears.
The economy's in the dumps, with unemployment at the highest levels in recent memory. So where's a geek going to find a job? While the politicians attempt to sort out how to fix things, we figured we'd point you in the direction of some major companies that might just be looking to hire.
