Firefly reunion documentary

Entertainment Weekly announced that a documentary of Firefly is being filmed for its 10th anniversary to be aired on the Science Channel on Nov. 11th. I would've preferred a MFTV movie but perhaps this will generate interest for such a venture.

I suppose it's better than nothing, and I'll certainly enjoy hearing what the actors, writers, directors, and Just Joss have to say about their experiences.

I'd prefer a new movie, too. But, yeah, maybe this project will create enough buzz to bring them back in a new adventure.

Re: Firefly reunion documentary

If they're not careful, the documentary will be longer than the series.

If there were new adventures, would you want them set after Serenity, or before so certain characters could be used?

Re: Firefly reunion documentary

CRAP...why the Science Channel? I would have to pay an extra $50 a month for that band of channels on my cablesystem.

Stuff like this used to be on the now rather lame SyFy. This is almost as annoying as the History Channel moving its good shows (and leaving us with shit like pickers and ice road truckers and other reality crap) to the Military Channel, of course on the same band as Science Channel.

I hope when I move that we have a better cable system.

Everything you said is EXACTLY why I no longer watch cable (or broadcast TV of ANY kind). I wait for everything I want to see on DVD.

I hope this comes out that way. The Captains did, after all.

I'm not surprised it's going to be on Science. Seems like every time I turn that channel on they're airing an episode of Firefly.

Why in the hell would Joss Whedon need Kickstarter if he really wanted to do a Firefly project?

If he wants to do something, and it would be economically viable to do so (which is highly debatable), he'll do it. He doesn't need Internet Kidz' weed money to get it going.

We probably won't see another Firefly project. The cast is ten years older, Joss has moved on to bigger and better things, and the property never really did make anyone a ton of money. The Serenity movie actually _lost_ money. How does that movie pitch go? "Well, we did this really kookie space western show ten years ago that got cancelled after a dozen episodes, and then we made a movie based on the TV show because a lot of people on the Internet bought the DVDs and we thought there was a market for it, but it didn't make back what we put into it financially so now we want to make another go at it."

Browncoats don't want to look at the situation that way, but it is what it is. Firefly isn't Star Trek. Pray for more comics or a novel or something, it's more realistic.

I didn't assume Joss had anything to do with this. The title Firefly reunion documentary just sounded like a fan project to me.

Just so. After Avengers made lots of monies, Whedon probably could bring Firefly back as another movie or TV show if that's what he wants, but I figured he's done with it and this is basically a tenth year anniversary special.

According to this, Whedon, and some cast and crew are doing a panel at SDCC which will be filmed for the hour long doc and called Browncoats Unite!

20th Century Fox Television still owns the television rights. Good luck ever getting them to let go.
