It’s been 15 years since Firefly graced the screen with its too-short presence. The sci-fi western showed audiences what television is capable of. And it was pulled off the airwaves before its time, leaving us with only 14 stellar episodes. But we’ll just have to make do with what we have.
With a crew of memorable characters, including Malcolm Reynolds, Zoe, Wash, Inara, Kaylee, Jayne, Shepherd Book, River, and Simon, the ensemble cast made beautiful music until the show was canceled in 2003. Despite its cancellation, Firefly won a Primetime Emmy and was ranked by TV Guide as one of the best shows canceled too soon.
We have a challenge for you. If you think you’re the ultimate Firefly fan, answer these quiz questions. You’ll be quizzed on the characters, special episodes, their movie Serenity, and general show trivia. Good luck, and let’s see if you’re a true Browncoat.
Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
Joss Whedon comes from a long line of writers. His father worked on The Golden Girls, and his grandfather worked on The Donna Reed Show and The Dick Van Dyke Show. He began work as a screenwriter after completing his education and worked on Roseanne, among other shows.
It was during that time when he developed the idea for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and wrote the script for the film that would precede the television show. He left work on the movie due to creative differences. In 1997, Buffy came aired on television and focused on a teenage girl who has discovered her destiny to battle vampires and other forces of evil.
Buffy spawned the spinoff Angel, and after that, he created Firefly and Dollhouse. He continued his work, which included writing for Marvel Comics, which eventually led to him as the writer/director of The Avengers and Age of Ultron. We can’t wait to see what’s next!
