Browncoats, Alliance, Reavers I don't care which side you claim, I know that you are as rabid as Rooster Teeth fans if not more so. Which is the reason I have come to you today, the same tragedy that occured with Firefly being cancelled by FOX is now happening with a Canadian Network named Space over the show "Todd and the Book of Pure Evil" if you've never heard of it watch here watchseries.eu/serie/todd_and_the_book_of_pure_evil It is amazing and I believe it was never brought to U.S. networks due to the fact that it should never be censored. If you like this show, and you would also like for it to make it to season 3 please sign the official petition https://www.change.org/petitions/space-channel-bring-back-todd-the-book-of-pure-evil# Please Rooster Teeth this thing has a long way to go before we can overthrow the network.
Odds are this has been posted in the thread already, but if I heard about it years ago when it happened, I had forgotten until just now. So I thought I'd post it here. I was watching the pilot episode and when Inara pulls out the syringe I was like, did they every explain what that was about? A search brought me to this clip. Apparently Morena revealed at the Stargate panel at DragonCon in '08 that Inara was dying of some disease.
Also, isn't it obnoxious when someone goes to a panel and asks questions about a different show that one of the actors was on? I think it happens with Firefly cast members a lot, which to me reflects kind of poorly on us.
That's what a lot of people thought at first. Then Joss said that no, that wasn't it. It was some big secret that Inara was keeping that would be gradually revealed later, or that's what it was going to be before the show got cancelled.
I saw all kinds of theories back in the day. I always sided with the theory that she was a drug addict and that's why she left Sihnon because it would be easier to hide it on the outer planets. There were people who thought it was maybe an anti-rape drug that companions had so that if someone tried to rape them, bad things would happen to the rapist. I saw people theorize that it was her birth control drug and she was looking at it regretting that she'd never had a family and even that it was a fetus that she could keep until she wanted to have a family and she was looking at it regretting that she'd never used it now that she was about to die. On and on.
It sucks but I really don't think that'll happen. They've been dropping hints about reviving it for years. As much as I'd love to think it'll happen, I just don't think it will. Although this guy here had a great idea on how to keep Firefly going: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtXIQu5G2Xg It's quite longwinded so I'll just tell you what he said. He mentioned that TellTale games should make an episodic Firefly game a la The Walking Dead and have the original actors voice the characters while Joss and Tim Minear head the script.
Yeah, I got my hopes up last year when Nathan Fillion suggested offhandedly he buy the rights to the show from Fox and reboot the show. Who knows though. The cast has always said they'd love to do more. The Arrested Development announcement was welcome, but many thought it would never happen.
Yes, I am aware of Serenity. Yes, that link is Veronica Mars (a show that Whedon liked so much he appeared on). My point is, just using this as an example, since this did so well (2 million in 10 hours) and from what I can tell it's not got as big a fanbase as this show/movie, I think there could be a chance (if ever there was one) that we could see something more.
And yes yes yes, I know it won't happen. But it was just a thought I had
I read about half way through, then started reading some comments. I stopped when she replied to someone who had defended Firefly by saying something along the lines of Your argument is invalid because I am correct, and "I will delete any further pro-prostitution comments". I.e. anyone who disagrees with me will be censored, aka I'm crazy.
