This is a big week for Browncoats. First, of course, #Firefly10th continues with “Safe,” which has one of my favorite moments with Jayne being very Jayne:
Jayne: “Dear Diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy . . . Today we were kidnapped by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever.”
Then Sunday the Science Channel is airing a marathon of the entire series, followed by a tenth anniversary special that is sure to be quite the treat if this clip is anything to go by. There’s also this iPad clip, MTV’s clip, ET’s clip, and TV Guide’s clip. And if you want to see more fun videos tweet @ScienceChannel with #FireflyNov11. For every 5,000th tweet, they’re releasing another clip that will not be part of the special.
Oh, and seeing as I haven’t mentioned it before Titan has a new book out, which is a compilation of their three Firefly companions in a leatherette bound edition. There’s not any new material inside — save for an introduction letter and a quote at the back of the book from Joss about wanting to continue the series somehow. It’s a really beautiful book and even though I already had the original books I bought it simply for the fact that it isn’t paperback. Tucked in a folder pocket at the back of the book are cast photos and a replica banknote. If you haven’t checked out any of the companion books, I highly recommend this edition over the individual copies, but the books themselves are all very much worth it in my very humble and incredibly biased opinion. ;-)
