Do you want to run this ship?

Yes, I am a Firefly junkie and if all goes according to plan will see the Serenity screening tomorrow in KC. Here's the quick breakdown on the film:

Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE, ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family –squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

If you ever watched the show you should know a good chunk of what's going on but I'm also hearing that there was a comic series that bridges the original TV show to the movie and explains the absence of some major characters. I've been unsuccessful so far in tracking the series down but will put info up if I can get my hands on them. Anyway, it looks like it's gonna be a phenomenal movie and, depending on how the movie ends, hopefully will lead to someone picking the series back up.(are you listening Sci-fi channel?)
