short article...headline pretty much says it all

December 09 2006
Serenifly cast turn up to cancelled convention. There's no simplier way of putting this. Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Mark Sheppard, Jonathan Woodward, Christina Hendricks and Adam Baldwin have all turned up and are partying with fans at the hotel bar into the night at the cancelled convention Flanvention. These actors? I don't have the words.

Any one episode of Firefly is as good as "that one episode" of that show that was your favorite until now.

The characters are all worth getting to know.

And Whedon will indeed kill characters, so there is real tension.

Good stuff in here. :)

Hero: The person who will stop Whedon from creating more steaming pop culture poo. Doesn't have to be a person; a truck, meteor, or pit bull will suffice.

I'm just here to let you all know that anyone who changes their name to Joss is a total dick bag and should have zero fans.

Not to mention how he totally farked over everyone who worked at his production company. The guy is a total rat.

Uh oh the geeks on there know they made Fark. They are probably fapping it pretty hard.
 
2006-12-09 10:28:48 AM  
I gotta say, Firefly had the greatest characters of any tv show I've ever seen...

part of that is because Whedon knows what people expect out of characters, so he creates the characters exactly as you envision, and then plays with them. Like: "what would really happen in this kind of situation"

There is no "wow, the chaotic neutral fighter with an eerie obsession with guns just threw them away to save his captain's life"... no... the characters stay *in character* the entire time, regardless of what kinda crap they're put into.

I can't Read the Farkin' Article!!!

It's likely the publicists thought it would be a good idea and sent them, but the actors were cool to do it.

I wouldn't agree it's "pop culture poo." It's different that the usual stories we get bombarded with on TV lately, although there are elements that were common back a couple of generations ago. And that it was cancelled is fairly indictive that it wasn't "popular."

that's so niiice. hoops & yoyo nice.

2006-12-09 10:34:36 AM  
That is an awesome story!

I never caught Firefly when it was on, and I am not a big sci-fi guy, but I did like Serenity. It must've been awesome to be fan of the show, and then get to hang with the cast.

I met three people from the show Ed when I was at a concert. I was a huge fan of the show, and we drank together, and they were so cool to me.

Nathan's got a movie coming out soon. "The Light" (White Noise II). He's very good in it, I've seen 3 versions of the rough cut.
 
2006-12-09 10:38:20 AM  
So you think you can be a better leader do you?
YES!
Well you can't.

News: Firefly fans turn up anyway
That's not news, they have nothing else better to do. They would sit outside the locked door and compare coats for 5 hours before retreating to their basements.

Sings...

He gave to the fans poor,
stood up to The Man, and
gave him what for / our love for him
now, ain't hard to explain, THE HERO
OF FireCon! THE MAN THEY CALL JAYNE!

Our Jayne saw the fan browncoat's backs
breaking / and he saw the fans'
laments / and he saw the Booster
taking / every dollar an' leavin'
five cents / so he said, 'can't do
this to my people' / 'can't crush
them under your heel'/ Jayne strapped
on his hat, and in ten seconds flat,
flew down to the hotel...

he gave to the poor,
stood up to The Man, and
gave him what for / our love for him
now, ain't hard to explain,

THE HERO OF FireCon! THE MAN THEY CALL JAYNE!

Thanks for the PSA. How about putting it in a really huge font next time too so no one will miss the chance to bask in the radiance of your worthless and illogical opinion?

ZzeusS: Got any kind of link or more information on this?

No, but I know. When Buffy ended he told everyone that worked for him that he had enough and was going to basically retire and canned every one of them. Then he went and started firefly. I believe he even dumped the guy who was basically his partner.

My brother worked for that partner at Mutant Enemy.

If you think it is ok for a grown male to change his name to Joss...I don't know what to say to that.

QQ haters. Firefly is still the best show to get shiat-canned in the first season for many a year.

Go back to furiously masturbating over American Idol re-runs.

Tell me again how the word "Hero" isn't overused?

I mean ... it's a sci-fi con, people.

It's not like these guys singlehandly ended the Iraq war.

Firefly was great. Serenity was great. Don't like it? Stay the phark out of the thread. damn.

Dear lord that man is hot AND a good human being. I am so close to giggling fangirl over Adam Baldwin right now.

So... just to clear up... in 2003, when Buffy ended, he told everyone he was going to retire but then went and started Firefly - which Fox had presciently shown and cancelled in 2002, thus saving him the effort of having to do anything?
