Firefly is a go!!!

As seen on Slashdot, Firefly the movie has been green lighted and will see theaters sometime in 2005…

7 Comments on Firefly is a go!!!

  1. I guess I ought to go buy the DVD set and watch it now….

    What are your thoghts on it Tim? Or anyone who watched it for that matter.

  2. I really like Firefly. It’s what I wanted “Traveller” (GDW’s SF-RPG) to be when I ran it. It’s like Poul Anderson and others who wrote (or write) about a grittier universe. It’s what Star Wars had before it got to “polished”.

    The show was a lot of fun. Great ship, great SFX, interesting characters.

    I wouldn’t know Joss Whedon is I fell over him–never watched Buffy or Angel or anything else he did, but this is some seriously good space opera/SF.

  3. Sigh. All this talk about Firefly…

    Let me know when you get the DVD’s, JP.

  4. Gee, have I mentioned how much I like the show?

    I’ll be the first to admit to being a raving fanboy about Babylon 5. To me, Babylon 5 represented the closest I’d see on TV of the kind of SF I grew up on–E.E. “Doc” Smith and the like.

    If B5 were on against Firefly, I’d probably watch Firefly…

  5. Wow Fred, you played traveller? I still have some of the original rule books in a closet at my parents house.

    I will admit to being a B5 fanboy as well. Now I may just take my happy self down to WallyWorld and snarf up a copy.

    Shh, don’t tell John!

  6. Yep, played Traveller. I was even “knighted” by GDW for some support work I did for the game.

    I still have a ton and a half of stuff gathering dust. Time to sell it all and turn it into green stuff to buy…more DVD’s!!!!

  7. Gotta love eBay!
