The crew of the Serenity never made it to Earth on the show or the movie. But what if they had? And what if they only did insanely cute things while they were there? These are the tough yet super-adorable questions being asked by illustrator Joey Spiotto in his new book Firefly: Back from the Black and we have an…
Part of world-building is language. If you’re creating an entirely new alien species, you’re generally also going to have to create an entirely new language for them. And what good is a language without a bit of profanity? Not much.
Westworld wasn’t the first TV show or movie to blend both Western and scifi elements—but it did it better than most. Still, while the genre has yielded some high-profile stinkers (Wild Wild West, Cowboys and Aliens), there are still plenty of amusing choices out there to help fill the long, long wait for Westworld’s…
Ron Glass, known for playing Shepherd Book on the acclaimed Joss Whedon show Firefly and its follow-up film Serenity, has passed away at the age of 71. No other details have been released at this time.
Priceonomics has ranked the most-popular cult TV shows, based on their IMDB scores. Across the board, Joss Whedon’s space western Firefly took the cake, with over 190,000 ratings and an average score of 9.1 stars out of 10. That’s a lot of love for the browncoats.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a Firefly fan that hasn’t vocally wished there were more episodes of Captain Mal and his goddamned heroes trekking about the ‘verse than the show’s sole, abbreviated season. But at this point, even Nathan Fillion has entered the “acceptance” stage of the five stages of grief.
Firefly might be long gone from TV, but there isn’t a power in the ‘verse that will stop fans from cooking up tempting what-might-have-beens. Case in point, this delightful teaser for the Firefly animated show that some parallel universe is probably really enjoying round about now.
There’s a category of science fiction that we really like: the well-worn space opera. Spaceships, crews, mysterious cargos, smuggling runs across the galaxy, and the like. Mike Brooks’ debut novel Dark Run has all of that and more, and we chatted with him about how he put this world together.
Syfy’s space opera The Expanse is getting geared up for its second season, and later this week, the series comes out on Blu-ray and DVD, which means that we can binge on the show all over again. When you watch it again, keep your eyes peeled for a whole bunch of easter eggs.
Opening credit mashups are a helluva lot of fun. Star Wars Minute has taken Star Wars Rebels and set it to Firefly’s Ballad of Serenity, the show’s opening credits. It works surprisingly well!
Winter Storm Jonas pretty much has the East Coast stuck inside this weekend, which means that you’re probably sitting in front of your television scrolling through Netflix. Allow us to help.
We may never get another live-action Firefly movie or TV show. So every bit of Firefly media that we do get is precious—and that explains why Browncoats became so excited about Firefly Online, the online role-playing game. But what’s become of this project?
Some of the best art takes your favorite thing and presents it in a new, fun way. Kevin Greene is a master at this. He takes famous, recognizable sci-fi characters and makes them look like they belong on a wall at a famous Italian restaurant.
Digging Deeper is a new video channel that goes in depth on a film topic. In their latest video, they profile Joss Whedon’s Serenity, examining how it uses a whole bunch of genres to really succeed as a film.
An unlikely actor is rumored to take over the role of Boba Fett. An Adventure Time movie is still in the works. Agent Carter casts four big new characters. Plus, Seth Green throws cold water on a Howard The Duck movie, and NYCC sizzle reels for Arrow, The Flash, and Gotham. To Me, My Spoilers!
The second entry in a dystopian series is always a challenge. The first installment usually has a simple hook—we fight in the arena, we deal with being the only person who has complex emotions, etc. And now, in the second outing... there’s more of the same. Or possibly, a whole lot more mythos. Either way, it’s not…
Upper Deck is putting together a set of Firefly trading cards, and artist Robert Jimenez is one of the artists involved. He’s put together some stunning cards of Joss Whedon’s series in pulp form.
No kidding. Here at San Diego Comic Con, the creator of Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse, and the director of two Avengers movies, just told us the nature and purpose of existence. He also revealed one of his next projects: a “Victorian female Batman” called Twist.
Every year at San Diego Comic-Con, I make a point to head to the Acme Archives booth. Then again, it’s hard to miss considering it’s 5 times the size of every other booth and filled with beautiful art. This year is no exception and three pieces in particular jumped out: the ladies of Indiana Jones.
