Calling out around the world, are you ready to camp your butt next to an air conditioner? Because summer’s here and the time is right for staying the hell away from all outdoor activities. As summer temperatures continue to break records and raise sea levels, I highly suggest keeping it cool and pull out some awesome…
How did the ’Verse in Firefly get the way it was? Fans will find out this November when Boom Studios launches a new comic book series set before the events of the show, during the Unification War.
It’s been just over 15 years since Firefly fans were introduced to Captain Mal and the crew of the Serenity, and almost as long since those same fans began desperately waiting for the show to come back from cancellation. That’s probably really unlikely at this point, but you can dream a little with this gorgeous…
While Joss Whedon’s Firefly is not likely to come back anytime soon, the franchise continues to live on. Two great examples are these in-world books from the world of Firefly, including a guide to everyone’s favorite ship, Serenity, and the ’Verse at large. Better yet? We’ve got your first looks at each.
You wanted a new season of Firefly? Here’s the latest reminder that’s probably never going to happen outside of a reboot, in the weirdest way possible: a picture of Nathan Fillion’s upcoming cameo on ABC’s American Housewife.
Firefly has been gone for a long time, but that’s not stopped the ‘verse from spinning ever onwards, be it through Serenity, through attempted video games, and even through comics. But now Captain Mal and his erstwhile crew are set to ride out into the black once again... although not in the way you probably want to…
The ill-fated scifi western Firefly debuted on Fox 15 years ago today. And while the show didn’t last long on the air, Serenity herself has kept on flying. So tell us, what do you remember most about the cult classic? And, perhaps more importantly, do you feel its legacy still matters?
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.
