Everything I need to know about life I learned from Joss Whedon’s show Firefly. I’ll admit, I was late to the party, seeing it on DVD after the fact, and that it was my husband who originally said “honey, you have GOT to see this!!!”. But really, Firefly is one of the best shows ever to grace the small screen, it’s a western scifi dramedy romance action, and when it ran, Fox had no idea what to do with it so they ran the episodes out of order and then canceled it.
Starring Nathan Fillion (@nathanfillion), Morena Baccarin, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Ron Glass, Gina Torres, Jewel Staite (@jewelstaite), and Sean Maher, have any 14 episodes ever had a greater cult following?
Science Channel has picked up the rights and will be showing Firefly in it’s entirety (hopefully in the right order) along with some little extras after each episode. Honestly, the extras sound a little cheesy and unnecessary, but I ain’t complainin’. So mark your calendars for March 6th at 8pm to see the full 2 hour pilot and weekly episodes in the correct order of some of the best science fiction ever filmed.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you’re in luck because you know what they say about your first time.
GraphicNovelNovember continues with some Brothers Whedon. Joss Whedon took fandom by storm with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. Dollhouse might not have been a hit, but any comicshop worth it’s weight in Darkhorse knows carrying anything Firefly, Buffy, or Angel will bring in the Browncoats.
If you are a Serenity/Firefly fan, I shouldn’t have to tell you The Shepherd’s Tale by Joss and Zack Whedon is a must have. There is no more mysterious character in the Firefly storyline than Shepherd Book. He’s a preacher who knows how to fight, a renegade who carries legitimate Alliance ID papers. He is a man made entirely of secrets, and this is your chance to learn them.
