I always thought Kaylee would be the one who'll eventually die, not Simon. And imagine how much interesting character development would have come out of a grief-stricken, darker Simon.
I think we might have seen something similar to what happened with Wesley in Angel. Which is not a bad thing at all.
This is what I always thought would have happened with Simon and Kaylee. It's a Whedon show--Simon couldn't remain squeaky clean forever.

There's something awesomely ironic about that sig combined with that post.

Firefly would probably be considered one of the better scifi shows out there, but I doubt that it would get as much acclaim as it does now. Much of that, in my experience, is due to its potential, which would have been realized, and it would have almost inevitably gone downhill at some point.

And I say this as a fan of the show who has his own Jayne hat...
You made a hat out of Jayne? How did you get him to bend like that?

If Jesus comes back we'll just have to kill him again.

Re: What if Firefly had run for five seasons?

Not to overly 'toot my own horn', but if you want to see how I think S3 would've unfolded, keep an eye on the Still Flying website (link can be found in my sig), since we'll eventually be answering that question.

P.S.: If anybody is interested in joining the project, we have some staff openings, so PM or email me (my email is
)

Re: What if Firefly had run for five seasons?

Jayne would be captain of the ship at some point. I think We would see a Reever with a personality become a big bad at some point. I think Book's past would come back to hurt the ship eventually even if he himself is already dead.

It's interesting to read the original Serenity (movie) script where Wash and Book have a different outcome by the end of the film.

Re: What if Firefly had run for five seasons?

Mal would have been a government spy all along.

Wash would have had an affair with Saphron and left Zoe.

Simon would have become a drug addict.

Jayne would have tried to rape Kaylee. And then felt really bad about it afterwords.

You know, the typical Whedon nihilism. Other then that it would have been fun TV. Which is also typical Whedon.

Indeed, do tell. I would consider giving a book a read if it doesn't have those two guys kicking the bucket like the movie.

Re: What if Firefly had run for five seasons?

I have a copy of what we at VFF came to call the 'Kitchen Sink' script, which does have both Book and Wash surviving. I can send it to anyone who wants it, but you have to PM me.

It definitely would have been interesting to see certain characters appear and new ones appear, basic stuff like that.

I don't know if it would have needed five seasons though.

I've got it....and frankly the "Kitchen sink" label is a misnomer. There isn't much there that's not in the movie except for the different character fates.
