Watch Half the Cast of The Flash Sing "The Ballad of Serenity"

Jesse L. Martin isn't just a great actor — he's also an accomplished singer and writer. And he's teamed up with three other Flash actors, Carlos "Cisco" Valdes, Rick "Eddie Thawne" Cosnett, and Patrick "Captain Singh" Sabongui, to make The Letter Carrier, a short musical film about a black family in 1860 hiding in… » 3/26/15 5:00am Yesterday 5:00am

The Exact Moment When Firefly Overcame My Considerable Skepticism

I'd love to pretend that I was a devotee of Joss Whedon's Firefly from the first moment I saw it. But I can't. I'd watched and enjoyed Buffy and Angel, but I was not sure what to make of this "space Western" show. As I watched, I scratched my head and maybe snarked a bit. Until this one moment happened. » 3/06/15 2:15pm 3/06/15 2:15pm

Never Fear, There Will Be A Jayne Figure Complete With His Trusty Hat

When we first got a good look at Funko's new line of 6" Firefly figures, Browncoats were rightly concerned about a distinct lack of hats included with the Jayne figure - but rejoice, Firefly fans: There'll be a hatted Jayne alongside the rest of the Firefly figures when they hit in a few months. Look how happy he is! » 2/19/15 12:20pm 2/19/15 12:20pm

Our First Blurry Look At Funko's Firefly And Rocketeer Action Figures!

And no, we're not talking about Pop! Vinyls, for once (they already have those, of course). We've known for a while that Funko would bring Firefly to its Legacy Collection line of 6" figures, but it looks like their reveal will be imminent, judging by these blurry images from Funko's Toy Fair catalogue. » 2/11/15 11:20am 2/11/15 11:20am

Finally, A Firefly Board Game That Makes Sense


Firefly is already enough of a weird property to be turning into a board game, almost 13 years after it graced (and promptly left) our screens - it's not like people haven't tried to shoehorn it into more conventional games, either. But finally, someone's gotten round to making a Firefly game that looks pretty cool. » 1/07/15 11:43am 1/07/15 11:43am

Does Anyone Really Think Star Wars Ruined Science Fiction?

The meme has been going around pretty much since Star Wars first came out in 1977: Star Wars wrecked science fiction. George Lucas' extravagant space opera messed up a genre that was fumbling towards grown-up sophistication. This idea made a bit of a come-back with the Force Awakens teaser, and it's time to kill it. » 12/09/14 11:45am 12/09/14 11:45am

That Firefly Card game is now an actual Card Game

The internet's desperate bid to ensure every part of Firefly makes its way into real life (I'm sure there's a Browncoat somewhere out there building their own Firefly-class in their shed) continues with a new card game based on the weird Space-fruit-poker the crew of the Serenity play on the show. Tall Card, anyone? » 10/25/14 10:35am 10/25/14 10:35am

What's The Greatest Speech In Science Fiction And Fantasy History?

The best science fiction and fantasy stories capture our imaginations in all sorts of ways — with cool visuals, with neat ideas, with clever worldbuilding. But sometimes the most powerful thing of all can be just one person, speaking eloquently. What's the greatest speech in any work of science fiction or fantasy? » 10/24/14 2:37pm 10/24/14 2:37pm

First Look At The Firefly Online Game In Action!

It's still early in development, but we thought you'd want to check out the first footage of the Firefly Online videogame. It's pretty much just a dude walking around a spooky spaceship, but it does have a bit of voiceover work from Captain Mal and Jayne, and that ain't bad. If you missed it, we have more details on… » 10/15/14 3:40pm 10/15/14 3:40pm
