Can we just do every other franchise in history as Disney characters, put them in one article and get rid of all these topics all-at-once?
 
2014-04-15 09:56:24 PM  
Heh, I was just thinking they should do a Clone Wars style Firefly so they could bring back the entire cast (OR I WILL FONG YOU!  PAIN!).  They could get the actors on a stage (or green screen, whatever) so the personality of the actor is also used, then CGI the whole thing.  Motion capture?  Eh, maybe.  And then have them all do voice overs.  That would be freaking awesome, and any of the stories Whedon didn't get a chance to tell would be used, since it doesn't matter if everyone is way older now.

A cartoon would be the second best thing, but how dark would Disney allow a cartoon to get?  CGI Clone Wars style, sure, but a cartoon?

\The cartoon was awesome though
\\Would STILL enjoy being turned down by Kaylee.

I guess it would help if any of them looked like the characters. And yes, why is River 5? Makes me feel dirty.

Miss firefly, but have to say at this point it's done and over with.  Now if they wanted to do a couple of prequel/sequel mini-series then I think that could be done.  Shepherd Book could have his own complete prequel series.  They left a lot of room for that.  They could also do quite a bit of just river kicking ass, but that might grow stale quickly.

How about no.  The  entire appeal of the Firefly crew is that they don't neatly fall into the Disney pigeonholes.

// By which I mean the usual broad, stupid stereotypes that every Disney movie uses: while this can be facetiously collapsed into making an analogy for every other character ever to a disney princess it doesn't actually capture the full scope of the stereotype-driven stupidity.

I think that's the point. Firefly is  constantly  mentioned. It gets articles, mash-ups, links to fan art and fanfic, and we get a Firefly-related thread anytime someone who was on the show farts and it gets reported on io9. There's a Firefly reference every day around here; Usually several of them.

However, I can't recall the last time there was a thread about  The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.  or Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles  or even  Sliders...All of which were better than Firefly in many peoples' opinions.

So you see, you really can't be surprised that some people get a little annoyed at Firefly getting radically disproportionate coverage, fanwankery, and discussions. Browncoats brought it upon themselves. If  Brisco County Jr.  fans were making constant references, linking to inane fan art and mash-ups, and spewing a never-ending discussion about the show and their wishes that it would return in some form  EVERY DAMNED DAY, everyone else would probably get pretty sick of  Brisco fans, too.

Hell, even  Xena fans learned to let it go and accept that the show was done, and they didn't even get a damned movie or happy ending... And they were pretty fanatical about their show.

One thing I really never understood about Firefly was how in the hell did anyone who had any experience working on network TV (including the people at Fox and everyone working on the show) think this show would have any hope in hell of being successful. I mean as much as people biatch about it being cancelled they should be happy it got the greenlight at all (and with a network TV budget). Since really when was the last time a show about space was successful on network TV. The only way this show might have lasted was if it was one of those syndicated shows filmed in Vancouver or New Zealand and played at random times on Saturday afternoon.

Completely agree. I never even cared that much for River, while the rest of the watching community was in love with her.. Honestly, I agree with someone else who posted here making her a Lilo type character (Lilo and Stitch) could be a lot of fun. I think some of the fans would get very confused boners though. :(

She's a part-time character. Although the most recent episode gave her character a major boost.

If you're not watching Arrow, you should be. Orders of magnitude better than Smallville. I'd go as far to say the Arrow-verse is better than the Nolan Bat-verse. Much better acting than the average CW 'pretty face' show, and writing that I'd put up there with GoT or Walking Dead.

The only thing missing from the previous episode was a mic for Slade to drop right at the end.

Maybe I should. There are only like 5 TV shows I watch anyway, could use another.

Summer Glau gets a bad rap. She doesn't cause shows to get canceled, she's just type-cast into sci-fi shows that have a proclivity to get canceled quickly.

Nathan Fillion (Mal) said that if he had the cash he would reboot Firefly himself. This was before Castle. Now he has the money but I guess not the time. Apparently he's a big geek too, he said on Conan that he has 4 lightsabers, the expensive metal kind that actually light up and make the noises. I have one. Seems like a cool guy.

Mugato: RoyFokker'sGhost: f you're not watching Arrow, you should be. Orders of magnitude better than Smallville. I'd go as far to say the Arrow-verse is better than the Nolan Bat-verse. Much better acting than the average CW 'pretty face' show, and writing that I'd put up there with GoT or Walking Dead.

Maybe I should. There are only like 5 TV shows I watch anyway, could use another.

Summer Glau gets a bad rap. She doesn't cause shows to get canceled, she's just type-cast into sci-fi shows that have a proclivity to get canceled quickly.



Season 1 is on Netflix. It starts out slow, but it gets much better after the first few eps. Summer Glau shows up in Season 2.

If you loved Capt. Jack from Dr. Who/Torchwood, you'll love John Barrowman getting to play the villain with the same amount of charm and style.

And if you're worried about the chemistry between Oliver and Laurel while watching Season 1...well...they fix everything up nicely in Season 2 re: Arrow & Black Canary.

Bonus for comics fans/geeks, Arrow does a  lot of name dropping and puts the spotlight on a lot of DC's B-level stable and characters.

Finally, Manu Bennet as Deathstoke is just incredible. And the character's written perfectly for a master villian; imagine if Lex Luthor was also one of the world's deadliest assassins and that's Deathstroke in Arrow.

Nathan Fillion (Mal) said that if he had the cash he would reboot Firefly himself. This was before Castle. Now he has the money but I guess not the time. Apparently he's a big geek too, he said on Conan that he has 4 lightsabers, the expensive metal kind that actually light up and make the noises. I have one. Seems like a cool guy.


He happened to be walking by a table in the DragonCon gameroom where they were about to start a
demo of the then-unreleased SERENITY RPG.  He saw the logo, inquired what it was, and then
proceeded to sit down and play a 4 hour session.

He is the pimp daddy of celebrity geeks in my eyes.

/I'd like to think he played Jayne

DjangoStonereaver: They could always make an anime version of FIREFLY.

Oh wait, they did:

/And it was 4 years before FIREFLY, and lasted 2.3x as long....

Also this (though it couldn't touch Bebop, it did have a Girl-in-a-Box))

I'm rather enjoying the Serenity comic that's out now.

/Totally unrelated to the thread, I know.  I wanted to say it anyway.

Uh, Joss said that Bebop was an influence for Firefly in interviews.

Nix Nightbird: A_Listless_Wanderer: WTF Indeed: Let it go, Firefly fans. It's gone.

Firefly fans let it go a decade ago after they got their movie.
Yet every time Firefly is even mentioned on Fark, we get people like you biatching about them.
Does that seem right to you?

I think that's the point. Firefly is  constantly  mentioned. It gets articles, mash-ups, links to fan art and fanfic, and we get a Firefly-related thread anytime someone who was on the show farts and it gets reported on io9. There's a Firefly reference every day around here; Usually several of them.

However, I can't recall the last time there was a thread about  The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.  or Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles  or even  Sliders...All of which were better than Firefly in many peoples' opinions.

So you see, you really can't be surprised that some people get a little annoyed at Firefly getting radically disproportionate coverage, fanwankery, and discussions. Browncoats brought it upon themselves. If  Brisco County Jr.  fans were making constant references, linking to inane fan art and mash-ups, and spewing a never-ending discussion about the show and their wishes that it would return in some form  EVERY DAMNED DAY, everyone else would probably get pretty sick of  Brisco fans, too.

Hell, even  Xena fans learned to let it go and accept that the show was done, and they didn't even get a damned movie or happy ending... And they were pretty fanatical about their show.


Well, that's because Xena sucked.

/seen a few episodes.
//they were meh.

If I were acting in a well-written, popular series where I had to stand next to Stana Katic every episode, I would put those plans on hold, too.
