Jon iz teh kewl: they should call it FireFox cause no one uses it
xkenny13: Make no mistake, the Firefly fan base has been growing for a decade ... saying there just aren't enough fans is pure crap, and for the life of me, I can't see why people keep getting this part wrong.
AdolfOliverPanties: Let it go, Browncoats. As it stands, Firefly has an unsullied legacy. A cool show that never had a chance to decline in quality, and a great movie. Be satisfied.
Rik01: I didn't care for Firefly. When it first aired, I thought it would be a cool science fiction show dealing with an ultra modern space ship and a crew of futuristic people having interesting adventures.Instead, it turned out to be a crew on a rust bucket, who kept setting down on human occupied planets where everyone mainly seemed to live like in the wild west, complete with period fire arms, riding horses and usually irritable.At least those episodes I saw.The lead character, the captain, now stars in a crime series called Castle and he's turned out to be great and funny. He's a crime solving writer, who lives with his too perfect daughter and a bit over the top aging actress mother. Plus, he's rich. He's displayed a humorous side that is pretty unique.Naturally, the show creators are on their way to possibly killing it off because they've had him get romantically involved with the pretty, tough lady detective he's been assigned to.I have a problem with Sci-fi shows where the characters use super advanced technologies then dress and act like something from the early 1900's. Star Wars comes to mind, with the main characters usually dressed like middle easterners, wielding 'swords' and moving through cities that remind me of the Mad Max and Blade Runner type of sets.I don't know what happened to the rest of the Firefly crew, but the captain seems to be doing quite well in his new role.
Hand Banana: I just thought it was stupid personally. They have the technology to build interstellar spacecraft but they are using weapons from the 1800s? Right...Bonanza in space.
xkenny13: but knock off the crap that there's only a handful of rabid fans left who give a shiat about Firefly.
xkenny13: <I>What do you think? Is Netflix right to pass up Firefly (if, hypothetically, they ever have a shot at it)because they don't think the audience is big enough, and is it really true that there are fewer Browncoats in the ranks now than there were 10 years ago?</I>It seems to be a forgone conclusion that the 'verse will unilaterally underestimate the Firefly fanbase.
Vangor: The Firefly fanbase hasn't multiplied? Since Firefly was on Hulu, one fan was earned in me, and there are at least a dozen other people who I turned on to Firefly via Hulu and are sorely disappointed there are none forthcoming. We are in the age of social networking and streaming, where cult fandom and word of mouth has turned craft breweries, independent films, online-only series, charitable causes, etc., into massive successes over an extremely shortened period of time. You know what streaming means for series? This means I watch, maybe invite a friend over to watch with me originally, and I simply have to share and... surprise surprise... I am able to instantly rather than tell someone to try and watch a show at a certain time on a certain day on a certain channel, probably by themselves. This has made a couple dozen fans of Booth at the End, for instance.
ReapTheChaos: This guy's a complete farking moron."The Firefly fan is still the Firefly fan from when it was on TV"That's complete bullshiat. Most of the shows fans never watched it when it was on TV, I never heard of the show until years later when I found it on Hulu. Hell if all the shows fans now had watched it when it was on TV it would have gotten excellent ratings and never been canceled.
rugman11: xkenny13: Make no mistake, the Firefly fan base has been growing for a decade ... saying there just aren't enough fans is pure crap, and for the life of me, I can't see why people keep getting this part wrong.FTFA: "The Firefly fan is still the Firefly fan from when it was on TV and there's fewer of them and they're more passionate every year. "I'm not necessarily saying he's right, but your argument isn't exactly refuting his point. What Firefly fans there are get more passionate and will fill a convention hall that seats a couple thousand, but are there ten million of them? Fewer than five million were watching when the show was cancelled. Based on the box office gross and the average ticket price, fewer than four million tickets were sold for the movie (and that doesn't factor in repeat viewings). What makes you think that there are still enough people out there who care enough about a show that aired a decade ago to get somebody to spend $20 million+ to make new content?
rugman11: ou're missing the other aspect of internet culture, though, in that its boost for cult fandom has also created an increasingly insular society in which people tend to gravitate toward other people who think the same way and we end up thinking that everybody is like us.
Saborlas: Uisce Beatha: Wash and Book are deadPretty sure that if it weren't for some asshole Fox middle-manager who scheduled the show for the Friday primetime death slot and aired the episodes out of order, said deaths would never have happened.Lesson learned: the guys in charge of scheduling at Fox will kill your show if they even THINK that you've slighted them. No surprise.
duckpoopy: Firefly was cancelled because nobody watched it. Nobody watched it because the writing and acting were terrible.
