Moose Jaw Times-Herald: Lisa's Corner: "We're still flying"

By Lisa Goudy

It’s been more than 10 years since Joss Whedon’s Firefly was on the air, but the fan base is still strong.

And this week, it popped up in the news again.

I have watched and loved every single episode of Firefly ever since I bought it on DVD, as well as the movie that followed the show, Serenity (2005).Firefly, sadly, was cancelled after 11 of 14 produced episodes were aired. All 14 episodes are featured on the DVD.

Firefly is an American space western science fiction drama set in the year 2517 and follows the adventures of the nine-person renegade crew of a Firefly-class spaceship called Serenity.

Some of the crewmembers fought on the losing side of a civil war and now make a living on the fringes of the world. There are two surviving superpowers – the United States and China – that joined together to create the central federal government, the Alliance.

Firefly stars Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are planning a web series, Con Man with the tagline “Because Convention Man doesn’t sound as cool.” They have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to finance the series so the pair can keep creative control over the series. They are hoping to raise $425,000 for the first three episodes.
