Browncoats, Are You Ready To Bring Back Firefly?

OMG, There's a chance Firefly might come back! According to Blastr.com, Nathan Fillion and a couple of the Firefly series writers, Jose Molina (who wrote Trash and Ariel Firefly episodes), and Jane Espenson (who wrote Shindig Firefly episode), have said they would be willing to drop everything and do Firefly again!

This all started because The Science Channel have bought the rights to the Firefly TV Series and will be airing it from March 6th, in their full originally intended order, with some extras. This inspired Entertainment Weekly to interview Nathan Fillion and ask if he would do Firefly again now, if Joss Whedon and Fox came to him and said they had screwed up. Nathan replied:

"Yes. Yes. I would examine very closely Fox’s reasoning — I’m a little gun-shy. If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it on my own, and distribute it on the Internet."

These immortal words have inspired Browncoats to renew their appeal to bring Firefly back again! And most specifically, to help Nathan Fillion buy Firefly! They've set up a brand new website, Help Nathan Buy Firefly, and a matching Facebook page. Their intention is to raise enough cash so Nathan can buy Firefly! They're collecting pledges and raising interest right now, then they'd like Nathan to acknowledge and approve what they're doing, then they'll set up a non-profit organisation for us to donate our money to. I for one would be glad to do anything to help bring Firefly back to our screens. I love that we have new Firefly comics, Joss Whedon isn't totally done with the series, and neither are we! BRING BACK FIREFLY!!!

So go 'like' their Facebook page, and follow their website (works in any Blog or RSS feed reader), and help us bring Firefly back!

Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down...

Don't worry Mal, we'll get you back in the air.
