Firefly fans, welcome to November 11. Tonight is the night that the Science Channel airs its long-awaited one-hour Firefly special. This special will interweave clips of the cast from San Diego Comic-Con with a more personal roundtable discussion. The cast, and writer/director/producers Joss Whedon and Tim Minear, will be sharing anecdotes from the cruelly short-lived television show that aired ten years ago.
Fans of Firefly, like me, are still bemoaning the loss of one of our favorite shows ten years since it came and went off the air. A chance to see the cast is absolutely worth the price of the flight to San Diego Comic-Con. But some of us have jobs, pets, and parole restrictions, so that dream of seeing Captain Tightpants on the Firefly panel is only a dream. But wait…the Science Channel knows your frustration. They can’t ask your parole officer to let you out of state. But they can bring the cast of Firefly to you.
