Calling all Firefly fans!


New member
As anyone who has seen an episode of Firefly can tell you. Firefly is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant television series ever created. How else could a television show which only aired for nine episodes, in the wrong order, aired on Friday night, was preempted by baseball, was given little to no marketing, and was pulled from the air so quickly, managed to draw in such a dedicated fan base that the dvds sales numbered among the highest of all time, a major feature film was produced, and the series is still, to this day, the highest rated television series on tv.com three years after the last episode was aired. There's a reason why the feature film based on the franchise has received very positive reviews from virtually every major publication, though it's still not nearly as brilliant as the television show. Furthermore, the brilliant characters and the rich universe that the franchise immerses you has so many possibilities for storylines since each new world that the crew manages to find themselves on can very plausibly be like no other world they've been on before. Each could have a wholly distinct ruling body, a very different set of rules and beliefs, and could each expose the audience to a wholly novel experience.

Please take a moment and sign the petition!
Dude, learn a thing or two from Joss and come up with a synonym for "brilliant."

It may happen someday. But it won't happen because of online petitions pushed by the most rabid fans. It'll happen because of money in the bank, and the decision will not be made by us but by Fox executives. I say this as the most outspoken Firefly defender on this board: we appreciate your love of the show, but your cause is hopeless and pointless.
It would have been nice if the nitwits running Fox had given the show at least a full season and compounding it is why the scif channel didn't pick it up, it would probably have done well there. Scif was good enough to buy Andromeda a critically dead scif show and pay for an extra season and they did the same with the new outer limits show on its last legs, They could saved the money and purchased Firefly and had a critically aclaimed and viable franchise , that would have been great.
Well, you might want to say what your petition is for. I'm assuming to bring the show back somehow? While I think that might be in vein...I still signed. Gotta hope. :)
If the purchasing of DVDs won't spark a continuance of the show beyond the film, then I don't see how an internet petition could possibly. For the business that is show and the executives there of, money speaks a lot more than words.
