QUICK QUESTION: Which Unjustly Canceled Shows Are You STILL Heartbroken Over?
No matter how much time may have passed, some of us still pine for that one TV show that got away. What's yours?
Firefly, a science fiction series that was canceled midway through its first season on Fox, has found a new home on the Sci Fi Channel. All existing episodes will air this summer, though there is no word on a second season.

Firefly lands on the Sci Fi Channel

Fans of the cult-hit series Firefly will be pleased to learn that the show has been picked up by the Sci Fi Channel--just two months before the release of Serenity, a Universal Pictures film based on the series.

For the uninitiated, Firefly is a "space Western" set 500 years from now, in a spaceship that cruises the outer borders of the planetary system that humanity has taken as its new home. The crew is made up of rebels who are fleeing persecution by the unified government known as the Alliance.

Firefly made its debut on Fox in 2002 but was canceled before the end of its first season. The Sci Fi Channel will air all 15 existing episodes, including the three that never made it to TV, starting on Friday, July 22.

Would You Watch a TV Hybrid of Firefly and Ocean's 11?
Well, you might get to if this British project gets funding. Watch the trailer for the non-existent show that has sci-fi geeks buzzing.
We loved these shows, but that didn't stop their evil networks from taking them away from us forever. Firefly, Freaks and Geeks, and others, we hardly knew ye.

Top 10 Shows That Were Canceled Too Soon

What's the deal with network executives, anyway? Can they simply not handle awesome television? Why must they tease us with one or two seasons of quality programming, then cancel good shows in favor of idiotic reality replacements? Is that really the way the world works now?

Science Channel Does Reruns Right with Firefly
Broadcast repeats usually just mean that some technician presses the "play" button, but Science Channel is going the extra step with Joss Whedon's sci-fi series.

Fox is developing a Firefly-ish Sci-Fi Western

Browncoats, ready your arms. Fox is giving the old Western-with-science-fiction-elements genre another go, ordering a script from Chuck executive producer Scott Rosenbaum, says The Hollywood Reporter. Now, this wouldn't normally be newsworthy, but we're guessing all you passionate Firefly fans might have something to say about it.

Fan makes case for Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to take matters of important movie casting into one's own hands, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that a geek make a kick-ass YouTube video. Such is the case with this fan-made trailer for Green Lantern "starring" a fanboy favorite.

Buffy's Spike may bite back

The New York Post reported today that Joss Whedon, creator of the cult hit television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is looking to make a television movie about one of the other vampires on that series: Spike.

James Marsters played the vampire Spike, who had spiky bleached blond hair and fell in love with the show's title character, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. According to the New York Post, Whedon recently told the online fan communtiy that he's been talking to actors and studio bosses about putting together a Spike television movie.

The Buffy cast has moved on to other projects, with varying degrees of success.

Gellar has starred in several films, including the Scooby-Doo franchise and an American remake of the Japanese horror film The Grudge, which grossed more than $110 million in the US. She has stated she has no interest in returning to the role ...

"Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me......There's no place I can be since I found Serenity, you can't take the sky from me." Firefly is set five hundred years from today in a new planetary system after humanity abandons "Earth That Was". Under the leadership of Malcolm Reynolds, a renegade who fought against the new unified central government (the "Alliance"), the crew of the Firefly-class vessel Serenity struggles to survive any way they can. They fly between the border planets to keep away from the Alliance and below its radar. This series was described as a "science fiction western" but is different from other space-based shows as it features no aliens. (For stations and individuals seeking the intended air order of the series as specified by creator Joss Whedon, as opposed to the order Fox originally aired them or that they are informing stations is the order they should be shown in, see here) Each of the crew members has a special role: Malcolm Reynolds holds the duty of Captain - he is a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the Alliance to no avail. He strives to keep all his crew members on task and Serenity flying safely, while trying to make a living and do the right thing...in his rather flexible moral framework. Zoe (aka The Soldier) is extremely loyal to Reynolds as she served with him during the war and owes her life to him. Zoe has the strength and experience to take command of the ship, if necessary. Wash is Serenity's pilot (and Zoe's husband) - unassuming, self-deprecating, and calm with a sense of humor. Kaylee is the ship's mechanic - an experienced engineer who keeps Serenity flying. Inara is a 'Registered Companion,' most easily described as a high-priced courtesan or geisha. She is also the person with the highest social standing on the ship and acts as the crew's Ambassador. Jayne is the muscle of the crew. A tough, uncultured Mercenary, unpleasant and offensively direct, but loyal to those on his crew...usually. The newcomers are: Simon Tam is the Doctor on Serenity and comes from a wealthy family and has a privileged upbringing. He has spent his life savings and future to save his sister, River. River (aka The Fugitive) was experimented on by the government. Her psychic visions (a result of the experiments) are taken at first as babble by the crew but they slowly come to realize that there's more going on than what shows on the surface. Book or "The Shepherd," is a wise minister who knows far more about military matters and battle tactics than a man of the cloth should, and his past is shrouded in mystery.moreless
