Is it really so shocking how crazy fans of this show can be???

Personally, I did not originally join this team to lose weight. I only joined to show my Browncoat support. And since then I have enjoyed the conversations and all of the info shared here. I don't know about the rest of you, but I love having that Browncoats displayed on my sparkpage!

I don't know all the various reasons that drew us here together... but first and foremost is because we LOVE the show! There are very few canceled shows that have felt the love that Firefly has...

I consider it amusing AND understandable. I am also thrilled that Firefly is still seeing screen time.

I can't believe the media frenzy that is surrounding what seems to be a one-off comment by Nathan. I've seen 8 or 9 different web pages covering the "if I had $300 million" comment and all sorts of various fan sites dedicated to getting Firefly back.

Does anyone else find it amusing how obviously rabid that Browncoats are for the show?

I was watching a show on the Science channel last night (Monday) and saw a Firefly commercial. SO COOL! Anyway, I was so enthralled with the excellent commercial that I didn't notice a when announcement. Hubby said, "I guess we'll be watching that even though we have multiple copies of the dvds and they don't have commercials?" Well, DUH! Of course!! OK, I'll probably dvr it and watch it later, but that counts as a watch in my book.

The Science channel has shows on the science of science fiction, so a science fiction show - especially one so popular (and probably cheap to broadcast) is not a huge stretch in my mind.

Thanks STILLFLYIN! Funny thing was that last night (Sunday) I turned on Science channel because I remembered reading that it started on a Sunday, but not date or time, so I thought, I will just check my satellite programming. TV on: something else was on, no sign of Firefly, TV off. Then I looked up the Science channel online, and it had only posted the date of premiere. Even with the extras, Science channel still seems an unlikely place to see the show.

"Firefly premieres on Science Channel on March 6 at 8 p.m., with the two hour pilot, followed by the first episode at 10 p.m. Following that, Firefly episodes will air every Sunday and, yes, in their original intended order and upgraded to high definition."

I'm guessing that is 8 pm Eastern...

According to Blastr, two of the Firefly writers have also said they'd be on board - blastr.com/2011/02/nathan-fillion-an

The fan sites for raising Nathan's $300 Million are linked to in that Blastr article:
helpnathanbuyfirefly.com/
and
www.facebook.com/pages/Help-Nathan-B
uy
-Firefly/198967863462576

It should be noted that they're not actually collecting money yet, but just following the news as it happens.

And speaking of Nathan's Twitter, He's on the Nerdist tonight and asked Twitter for questions. @DeathStarPR asked: @NathanFillion Who would win in a fight: Han Solo or Mal Reynolds? Or would they just make out a bit?

That should keep us all happy through the night :)

I dont know if any of you follow Nathans tweets, but after a comment in an interview where he mentioned that if he won 300 million from the California lottery, he would buy the rights to Firefly and start putting it on the web. He recently posted a picture, the California lottery commission sent him a card with a voucher for a quick pick in there saying Good Luck :)

There's also some rumors of fans donating pledges to get him that 300 million.

Can't stop the signal emoticon

CHIQUENS: Every episode was golden!

STILLFLYiN: It will be interesting seeing what "science" says about the "verse"

I have seen some shows on the Science channel with Dr. Michio Kaku that explored sci fi science, and some of those were lots of fun to watch! What is cool about him is that he is also a big sci fi fan (ahem, nerd like the rest of us LOL)
You don't feel he is poking fun, just really interested in the Science of stuff, no matter how "out there" the stuff is.

He might possibly be a browncoat...

No other details, other than following Nathan on twitter. I've checked with some friends who say that Joss is doing other things right now, so the chances of the show coming back are slim. Which sucks, because it was damn good tv.

JENIFIREHARP - I agree on the commercials - hate them! I may dvr the shows and fast forward just to see the extra stuff.

I don't want to make anyone angry, but I know the 'verse is not real. The idea of a scientist explaining the 'verse, when Joss just made it up with little if any understanding of real science is entertaining to me. I'm curious about what the scientist and his staff may come up with.

Interesting. I might tune in just to catch the extra segments. Otherwise I would stick to my DVD to get my Browncoat fix (I hate commercials!)

Thanks I so wish that they would bring back the show. Everyone we have ever borrowed the show to have loved it so much as say it is the best show ever.

I think that I will go cry now about it being taken off the air emoticon
