If you’re a fan of the sci-fi / western tv series Firefly, then you probably already know that the movie incarnation of the show, called Serenity, is due out September 30th, 2005. But you may not know that the Scifi channel has begun showing the classic series again on Friday nights. It just started last night. I missed it myself, if you did too they’ll probably repeat it before next Friday. Check your local listings.
As of now, I haven’t heard anything about Scifi making any new episodes, they’re just re-showing the original series. Hopefully if the movie is a success, they’ll start the show again. The show failed the first time around partially because FOX, in it’s infinite wisdom, played the episodes out of order, making it a little difficult to get into the story line. Hopefully Scifi won’t make the same mistake.
If you want to watch all the episodes at your own pace. The complete series is available on DVD at Amazon. I own the set, and I highly reccomend it.
