Sigh....I really hate it when Whedon throws out a tease like this.  The show is done, killed before its time, and stuff like this just picks at the scab for me.  One of my friends has a theory, if you want to end a show definitively, you need to kill the heart.  If you've seen the movie, you know that Whedon did just that.  Any further adventures of the crew would be significantly lessened in my eyes.  For 14 episodes, they were able to capture lightning in a bottle.  After all this time, I just don't think they would be able to reproduce the magic of the original.  Time to move on.

It was a mediocre sci-fi show that would have fallen flat as soon as the season ran long enough for the writers to run out of good one-liners.

@Mentant

Firefly was cancelled because no one watched it, in the same way that a restaurant with great food can close if no one goes there.

You can pretty much make anything fail if you blow at advertising (fox) and stuff it into an awful location (also fox).

Not to threadjack too much, but i hope it doesn't suck this season since the creator Dan Harmon and some of the key writers weren't involved.  Hopefully there was enough momentum left behind that they can push through and keep up the quality.   Oh, and we try not to sexualize Annie, she's a little young.
 
2013-02-05 11:43:10 AM
I can see it coming back. And hopefully they will run it until people beg for it to be taken out of its misery.

It was a good show, but since it was cut down in its prime i think peoples imaginations exaggerated what could have been. Think of the latter seasons of Buffy. That's the direction the show will go instead of all the most amazing things you can imagine.

While I seriously doubt he will resurrect the series itself, it's certainly possible that he will revisit the Firefly universe. I believe there are many more stories that can be told.

[www.teefury.com image 472x447]


This is like saying "just so happens that today ends in a 'Y'"

I think that upwards of 80% of TeeFury's designs are Joss related and mostly Firefly.

/And due to my wife's TeeFury addiction, I happily own most of them :)
 
2013-02-05 12:16:52 PM
So, Joss has said that he'd like to re-visit the Firefly/Serenity universe after Avengers 2 and the SHIELD tv series gets going. This could mean another comics series or it could mean another movie or maybe even a new tv series. I'll even admit there's a (slim) chance that it could just mean Joss milking things and screwing with our hopes.

However....

Since the news of Disney buying Star Wars, I've been saying that they'll use it for leverage over Fox in order to get back the Marvel film rights Fox has. 'You guys at Fox like Star Wars money, right? Well, if you ever want to get a cut of the distribution again, you'll sell us back the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. By the way, did we mention that we've got plans for Star Wars films every year for about 8 years?'

They could easily ask for the right to Firefly/Serenity in that deal. Fox isn't doing anything with it, so selling it to Disney while retaining a cut of the distribution would basically be free money for Fox. Same deal that Universal worked out with Disney over the rights to 'Hulk', and it's worked out well for Universal.

Firefly was wonderful. But the theme song was horrid. Firefly's theme was worse than Enterprise's (yes, yes it was). It wasn't the scheduling problems, or showing the episodes out of order...it was that awful theme that killed Firefly.

Yes, I know you wrote it Joss, but it still doesn't make it any good. Hell, the instrumental version at the tail end of Serenity was far better than that the actual lyrical one used in the series.

She's just too cute, and after watching the outtakes it's evolved into a love of Brie herself, not just Annie

Considering the percentage of the original cast that are also excellent voice actors (Just in the DC universe: Adam as Jonah Hex, Morena as Black Canary, Summer as Supergirl, Gina as Wonder Woman/ Superwoman/ Vixen, Alan as Green Arrow, and Nathan as Green Lantern), I can't imagine that it would be particularly difficult to get Firefly: The Animated Series off the ground with a complete or nearly-complete crew (only Jewel and Sean have no VA credits, but I'm optimistic). Particularly, the production schedule would be flexible for the cast's other commitments in a way that filming never would.

A handful of wildly successful shorts (webisodes?) with Whedon's golden touch behind it would be sure to get some funding.

/I would watch that so hard

Probably a pic of a fan-made gift.

But wouldn't it be cool if there was a cartoon voiced by the original actors in the works?
