All that said, I've always done my best to filter in Firefly/ Serenity news in on whatever website I may be working on for all the Browncoats out there and the cast seems to float past me where ever I go. While conducting interviews in a booth at San Diego Comic Con, we were distracted by shouts of "Oh Captain My Captain!!" up to Nathan Fillion who was waving to his people from atop a booth. On another occasion, in a hallway on an upper level of SDCC, I ran past Jewel Staite who was waiting to do interviews for a new project and was very kindly posing for pictures with anyone who asked. I didn't miss an opportunity to shake Joss Whedon's hand at the Hard Rock and tell him the crew at Dread Central was looking forward to the distant release of Cabin in the Woods..and gushed a bit with Alan Tudyk on a press line for Tucker and Dale vs Evil...as I have nothing but gush for the guy. So..kindly..I thank you for this moment to express my love for this show and this crew and put things in perspective when I go into detail, recounting my teary eyed viewing of the Science Channel's "Browncoats Unite" special.
The Firefly Anniversary special sits cast members Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Summer Glau with executive producer Tim Minear and executive story editor Jose Molina around a heavy wooden table to reminisce. Cast members Gina Torres and Jewel Staite join via spliced in interviews. The same reasons why this cast was perfect together in the show shines through as they chat together more like a family ...picking on each other..hamming it up..visibly getting a little choked up from time to time. If these moments were not enough for die hard fans, you'll also find a big secret revealed, a story line never produced and further story ideas from the cast. The show wraps with highlights from this year's San Diego Comic Con 10th Anniversary panel.
Firefly: Browncoats Unite is 60 minutes of teary eyed bliss that every Browncoat will want to own seconds after watching. Tune in this Sunday, November 11th at 10pm (et/pt) on the Science Channel!
