Hey Browncoat – Do You Remember Firefly?


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.


Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

In Whedon We Trust

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!
