I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

no.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2016 - 03:03 PM)

is anyone watching more web original shows and streamed TV shows than actual TV channels?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2016 - 10:49 AM)

I wanted to charge my book, but couldn't cause my brother was charging his cigarette... the future is stupid.

@  Pennpenn : (22 May 2016 - 09:05 AM)

I hate that situation where you spend ages to find something, then realize it isn't charged, but you can't find the charging cable.

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 09:00 AM)

Only cartoons I keep up with are RID2015, Rescue Bots, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and Rick & Morty

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

no, I don't really watch cartoons on tv no more

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:54 AM)

@Locoman, have you watched the cartoon I was talking about (Supernoobs) though?

@  Telly : (21 May 2016 - 10:34 PM)

"Chaos is bad for business, y'see." depends on the kind of business youre in...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:34 PM)

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

So, I am one of the many in the world that didn't watch Firefly back when it was on Fox. Well, after hearing so many good things about it, I DVR'd the entire series when The Science Channel had their July 4th marathon. Well my wife and I finally sat down on Saturday and watched the entire series. We were both so blown away by how good it was, we ran out that night (2am Sunday morning) and bought Serenity on BluRay and watched it on Sunday.

I am ashamed at myself for not watching this series before. I feel like I need to turn in my scifi fandom card for not supporting this show when it was on the air. The characters, the story lines, the effects... this show was absolutely amazing!! I seriously have a hurting inside knowing this show only got one season and a movie.

I guess where I'm wanting this thread to go is, now that Science Channel was able to secure the rights to play the series, do you think there's any chance of them bring the show back for another season? After a search on the web, the last talk I saw of another season was back in 2007 when people were trying to secure the rights away from FOX. So now, it's 2011, 9 years after the original series was produced. Is there still a market for this show or would it suffer the same fate it did on FOX?

No, you are not alone. I didn't bother watching it while it was on, and didn't really like it till I sat down and watched it on DVD (in the proper order, mind.) with my brother.

As for direction: currently, nathan fillion is trying to raise funds to buy the property off fox and make webisodes.

I didn't watch until it had been on DVD a while. I did manage to catch Serenity in the theater, though.

Given that some of the principal actors and Joss Whedon all seem to be tied up in other projects right now, I think that would argue against anything very long. It's also true that it's been almost ten years: everybody's moved on to other projects and it's hard to say how open they would be to returning. (Haven't heard anybody say anything bad about the production, and Jewel Staite practically gushed about it in an interview I read a while back.)

Crazier things have happened.

^he wasn't serious about that.

Despite the loud volume of fans, there just isn't a large volume of fans. There hasn't been enough of them (or enough of them willing) to support comics even when written by Whedon.

I only just recently watched the series, haven't caught serenity yet, but I'll get to it. Probably once I'm done with Black Adder.



Loved it, by the way.

It didn't help that the comics were only so-so, and some of them were only available at rather high price points. I mean, Shepherd's Tale was interesting and finally revealed Book's past, but IIRC it was a $25 rather slender hardcover volume. Pricing for the hardcore fan and no one else.

I think Serenity was a good end for the series. Everyone has gone on to other things. I almost wouldn't mind a Firefly: The Next Generation some time down the road, but for now, I'm happy with how things turned out.

There are some very vocal hardcore fans though that make me tune out of the fandom completely. I've been fairly disappointed with the comics and tie-in stuff to. So, I'm ok with it being over for now.

And I watched and loved the series when it was first-run, and was there for Serenity opening night.

This is usually where I plug Fireflyfans.net. We have an unproduced script from the show and are basically the clearinghouse of Joss-related news.

News like this tidbit from SDCC:
QUOTE
But more interestingly - especially if "Firefly" happens to be your favorite Whedon project (as it clearly was to many people in the Indigo Ballroom) - when a fan asked if he'd be telling the backstory of more "Firefly" characters in comics, Whedon said that "We now have license to not only tell backstory but move forward with these characters, too. It would be interesting to know what happens next."


The other Firefly comics alluded to above were "Those Left Behind" (set between the series and movie), "Better Days" (set after the series), "Float Out" (set after the movie, but framing a flashback to before the series), and "The Shepherd's Tale" (a prequel revealing Book's backstory). There's also "The Other Side" (during or after the series) which was online-only.

From the sound of things, the rights FOX was squatting on have reverted to Joss, and they can now start filling in the post-Serenity timeframe (which they already kinda did with the last page of "Float Out").

Thanks for the link Cybersnark. I'll be checking that place out right now.

As far as the movie being a fitting end of the series, I can see that point. I really need to read some of the comics and see what else is out there.

Crap! Looks like I missed "Shepard's Tale".

"Float Out" was pretty bad, really the only notable part was the last page. I thought "Better Days" was alright. It at least managed to capture some of the fun of the series.
