Ten years ago, on September 20, 2002 a cult phenomenon began. Is it time for a TV movie?
Writer and director Joss Whedon created the American space western television series Firefly. Set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, it follows the adventures of the mercenary crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship. Whedon described the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things." It starred Nathan Fillion (Malcolm Reynolds), Summer Glau (River Tam), Morena Baccarin (Inara Serra), Adam Baldwin (Jayne Cobb), Jewel Staite (Kaylee Frye).
Science Channel is shooting a new one-hour reunion special chronicling the Firefly cast at Comic-Con this week. It'll feature interviews with the cast and the creator Joss Whedon taking the viewer behind the scenes of the show. But, I say we go all the way.
We know there's never going to be another movie in the theaters. Serenity was a brilliant, but singular event. The television series will probably never come back. Especially since Nathan Fillion (Captain Mal) is on the successful show Castle.
But what about a TV movie? What if they could bring the crew back for one shiny trip into the black? Would you watch it?
What would it be about? Should it be the original cast? Where would they go?
Your turn. Let us know in the comments and the best ones will be added to the post next week.
Thanks for the great comments!
