I don't remember hearing about it either. I actually got wind of it through you guys. Now I own the series and the movie.

I remember hearing about it but from the advertisements I thought it was a western with aliens... um, yeah

I didn't actually see the show until josh bought it, more than a year before the movie. Wish they had kept it on air. Sad

Matt and I finally started watching Firefly last night. Holy shit this is a great show. We'll probably watch another episode tonight. The cancellation of this show is a testament to the stupidity of Fox executives.

I watched a couple of episodes when it was first on. The friday night timeslot was a pain and the show got yanked before the full season aired.

I can see what they were thinking. "People who like science fiction are losers that never go out on Friday night!" It was true in the 80s but since then the geeks have started going outside.

(Or they're playing WoW instead.)

No, they're still at home, just watching Sci-Fi Friday. Fox would need about 6 Firefly's to get that market back. Might as well just give up on it and put on another 12 reality shows.

Underhill set up a website to find out the market available for Season 2.

www.fireflyseason2.com

They just want to know how many geeks out there would want to see more episodes of Firefly and in what formats. Of course, this doesn't mean that Season 2 will ever be....

I'd love to see more in any format. Though I wholly support SciFi supporting it, similar to what they are doing with the Stargates and BSG. Maybe get rid of another so-so show coughdrwhocough and put on new Firefly instead!

I think the big problem is that Fox owns the rights and isn't all that interested in giving them up. An independent agency is trying to buy the rights for distribution in a pay-per-view kind of way, and bypass regular TV. It's a brilliant new marketing concept, tho a long shot.

SciFi is probably stretched too thin to help Firefly now. Last year SciFi passed on the rights to Enterprise because the cost of the show to produce was too high. I think they'll probably pass again, tho I wish they'd throw their money at some really good shows like Firefly instead.

Found this today on digg. It's The Lost Tapes of River Tam. These sessions shed some light on the on what happened to River while she was at "The Academy". The counselor in the video is played by Joss Whedon.

I linked to the digg post because the main link may be down but the comments have mirrors linked.

It all goes back to Morena Baccarin's statement that she would put off dialysis to join the cast and crew for another go-round if needed.

Of course she never needed dialysis, but I think she was being figurative to make a point Wink
