So...here it is!  More later!

SHINY!!

**hugs all the Browncoats, and the ones who haven't found this thread yet**

Ahh...my kin.  So, how do you obtain your Firefly fix...? That does not involve doing late night rituals to compel Josh Whedon to write a continuation?

Volume 4 came out in the past couple of months.  It takes place right after the movie.

I watch the series on Hulu plus and have my character try to juggle geese in my role plays when possible.

There was a six issue comic book series in 2014.  There were other comic book series before that.

The comics have been compiled into hardcover graphic novels published by Dark Horse and mostly written by Zack Whedon, Joss Whedon's brother.

Serenity Volume 1: Those Left Behind (takes place after the Firefly series, before the Serenity movie)
Serenity Volume 2: Better Days and Other Stories
Serenity Volume 3: The Shepherd's Tale (background of Book before the Firefly series)
Serenity Volume 4: Leaves on the Wind (takes place after the Serenity movie)

Aww yeeah, I heard about the new one taking place after the movie, I'll  just wait for it to be all compiled into a book like the other ones I have

Serenity Volume 4: Leaves on the Wind came out in November 2014.

Leaves on the Wind was excellent...  well worth picking up. 

Is this where the Browncoats are gathering, them as can spare some time finding like-minded folk to conversate with?

Comics...written by Josh's brother, Zack!  Pretty psyched...I was able to snag some of the original limited edition issues too.  But I've fallen behind in getting all the issues.  Comic stores are about a 30 minute drive away.

So, last year I worked the Denver Comic Con, Weapons Check...I got to take photos of everyone who was too cool.  I wish there were more cosplays of Zoe.  She is hot...and I must say my idol.  Im toooooo pale to ever do a cosplay of her justice though.

Anybody here do cosplays?

No,  don't cosplay as I don't really look like any characters. As for photo shareing most people use the E wiki or simply link the photo o their post with the image tag.

Dude, I  totes do cosplay. My husband and I have gone as Kaylee and Jayne. I hadn't  watched the show until too many strangers said I looked like her. My best friend had the series, so we watched it, aaand it was a little weird. I felt like I was watching myself...Then I  slowly realized my 6ft 3 husband looked like Jayne, and that was that.
So Jewel Stait, (the girl that plays Kaylee) is going to be at Chicago's Comic Con in late April!!! And I am kind of obligated to go. I'm super psyched!!!
Oh, and john rhys davies will be there too...

I would post a pic, but someone's gonna have to walk me through that...I use my phone for all this and the pics are on my phone.

Sweeeeet!!  :) Yes, Jewel is going to be here in Denver as well!  I am psyched...but can never afford the extra charge for a celebrity photo anyway. :P

Yeah, I am unsure how to share photos either, while maintaining privacy.

This Zombie-thread has shambled along and gobbled me up. I actually just last week watched the Firefly episodes on a whim - well, most of them. I skipped Jaynestown (which I've always found a bit weak and the series actually doesn't need to still make sense) and the last episode because it's too downer of a note for me to ever make it through because I always just end up going "why was it cancelled!?"


Anecdote(s) I recently learned although I think it's pretty common knowledge and I'm just out of anything resembling "the loop" - the character of Inara Serra was recast on something like the second day of shooting because the original actress in the role had no chemistry with any of the cast. And apparently had the series been able to continue, Inara was terminally ill (a point which seems to be dropped for the post-series materials of the movie and the graphic novels) - there are a few points in the series where they kind of allude to it and once you know you can understand them better in context.


And I figure this is a good place to ask - are the graphic novels worth picking up? Has anyone checked them out at all?

I loved Jaynestown.  Jayne being an accidental Robin Hood, Inara getting a client to stand up to his father, etc.

Rebecca Gayheart was originally cast for Inara.

I enjoyed all the graphic novels. 

Volume 1 and 2 have more heists, including appearances by Hands of Blue, Dobbs and The Operative.  They seem to take place between episodes of the TV series and between the TV series and the movie (with Inara and Shepherd leaving Serenity). 

Volume 3 is Shepherd's back story. 

Volume 4 is right after the movie, and has Jubal and The Operative. 

I also liked all the companion guides -

Firefly Official Companion Volume 1
Firefly Official Companion Volume 2
Firefly Official Companion Still Flying
Serenity Official Companion

And I also liked the Serenity Blueprints Reference Pack.  I think the same company has a guide about the 'Verse, but I haven't gone after that yet.

She left after 1 day of filming, which beats the 2 days the original Captain Janeway on set.

If you have it hosted somewhere else & could provide a link to it rather than embedding it I think that might be better. Celebrities may be public figures but we'd still rather members only actually posted pics of themselves.
