Its hard to believe that 10 years ago at this time, Fox was misusing and abusing a little series called Firefly, Joss Whedon’s now seminal series which combined space opera with the Old West to create one of the most unique and fascinating science fiction shows since the originalStar Trek. Naturally, it was cancelled after 13 episodes.
Well, on this occasion of its tenth anniversary, and as they’re airing the run of Firefly in intended order, the Science Channel hosted a special tenth anniversary panel for Firefly at New York Comic Con today. Although it was unlikely to be the barn-burner the one in San Diego was earlier this year, there was still enough for Browncoats to get excited about: a first look at the Browncoats Unite special (which airs on November 11 at 10 pm), some insights from the people that made the special, and even some surprise guests (each more surprising than the last).
So let’s end the teasing there and segue into a recap of the panel, as interpreted by our fine Bastard crew.
