Re: Firefly reunion documentary

I saw the SDCC Firefly panel with most of the cast as well as writers and, of course, Mr. Whedon. After the huge success he had with The Avengers, he should be able to pick and choose whatever project he'd like to work on next. Why not this pet project??

Oh, I don't know, maybe for the very simple reason that neither 20th Century (Firefly tv rights) nor Universal (Serenity movie rights) are likely to be interested in attempting to revive for the third time a franchise that already failed twice.

Re: Firefly reunion documentary

I'm sure Firefly will always have a special place in Whedon's heart but I doubt he's looking to come back to it. Serenity probably satisfied most of that anyway. I can't read his mind or anything but I think this would be a smart time to tackle something new while the iron is hot, I'd imagine another big screen movie. I do hope he comes back to TV someday though as I think he has a special knack for it.

Re: Firefly reunion documentary

During his reddit AMA in April, a user suggested Joss use Kickstarter to raise funds to purchase the Firefly rights. This was his response:
Step 2: Cancel Castle. Step 3: Cancel Homeland. Step 4: Generally destroy everybody's careers. Step 5: Avoid Step 2.

Us too.

We can't wait.

Did anyone see the last episode of Castle, by the way?

^Yes! It's one of the few Castle episodes I've watched all the way through. Good stuff!

It's entertaining enough, and it's nice seeing the cast talk about the show. I was kinda hoping for a little more. I really wanted new interview footage with Joss Whedon, but the only stuff with him that they show is from the Comic-Con panel (which I've already seen). I was a little surprised that they didn't sit down and interview Joss for this special. I guess he was unavailable?

That's a pity. I assumed he would be there with everyone else.

Re: Firefly reunion documentary

It was rather entertaining, even a bit spoilerish about the show's path if it had continued. Like what was said before, not everyone was there. Joss only was seen at the Con itself and Ron Glass made no appearance at all, which was somewhat disappointing. There were others who had done their interviews separately, I imagine they were off doing other things and didn't have time to make an appearance. If you're a fan of the show, it's well worth watching.

I would love to see this. Hope it shows up on DVD or Netflix streaming, or at least YouTube...
