Set 500 years into the future, in the wake of a universal civil war, “Firefly” centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that does not have a planet to call home. Captain Malcom “Mal” Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job – legal or not – to stay afloat and keep his crew fed.
With the success of yesterday's Veronica Mars kickstarter, fans of Joss Whedon's short lived sci-fi series Firefly are wondering if they will see the rebirth of the franchise. The Marvel's The Avengers director was recently interviewed and spoke out about a possible kickstarter for his beloved series.

Here's an interesting question: In this harsh economy, would you rather give any extra money you may or may not have to B movie actor Nathan Fillion so that he can make new episodes of the long-dead Fox series Firefly, or give that money to a family in Christchurch who has suffered great loss after the recent earthquake, or use your lawn mowing cash to help the hobos in New Orleans that still haven't recovered from Hurricane Katrina? There are a million causes out there that desperately need your help. But if the Browncoats have their way, they're going to put all their efforts behind earning $300 million so that Nathan Fillion, who recently made an off-the-cuff statement, can create a web series based on a show that lasted for one short season, and then spun-off into a feature film that was mediocre at best.
Here's the rub. Firefly was an hourlong sci-fi series created by The Avengers director Joss Whedon. It ran for eleven episodes (fourteen were produced in all) between September of 2002 and the summer of 2003 on Fox before being canceled. In that time, it had amassed a huge cult following, the individuals of which call themselves the Browncoats. They're basically Trekkies or Trekkers (I'm not sure which), and their efforts to save the show back in the day were unprecedented. They raised money to place an ad in Variety and organized a postcard writing campaign hoping UPN would pick-up and continue the series. Their continued efforts to revive the already cremated show were enough to convince Universal Pictures to make and release the theatrical feature Serenity, which was a continuation of Joss Whedon's imposed storyline. It turned out to be strictly for the fans, alienating most moviegoers who didn't know any better. Basically, these fans and their tactics are persuasive and honorable. We need to have them doing something better with their time.Read More
