No, they’re not gonna see this coming

Just wanted to point you to the just-released trailer for SerenityJoss Whedon's Firefly movie. Firefly was, for a brief shining moment, was the most brilliant, best written, most affecting, best acted, most creative show on television. I was fairly well crushed when Fox canceled it. So I've held on to pretty high hopes for the movie. But what I saw in the trailer was more than I ever imagined. It looks huge. And there are so many great snatches of dialog. Oh, I hope the movie delivers.

If you never got to see Firefly when it was on TV, you should go pick up the DVD and give it a try. You won't be sorry.

    Though I never saw it on TV, I’ve just bought the DVD and started working through the episodes. It’s a great series so far. It seems the unique mix of genres was too much for the execs at Fox to stick with it. The blend of western and space themes works surprisingly well, kind of like with Cowboy Bebop which was another great series. What really makes it work though is Whedon’s great writing. He even wrote the awesome opening theme song.
