Fox?

I feel the pain already. I know it was over the years ago, but I'm still mad at them over Firefly.

Everyone who watched Firefly while it was on the air still is mad at them for Firefly.

I generally am of the mindset that I take anyone not liking something I do. To each their own. Except Firefly. If you've watched 2-3 episodes of Firefly and you don't like it, there is something wrong with you. ;-)

This is also just being optioned...let's hope we see some more. The superpowers as a drug was an interesting metaphor.

Though would be nice for them to do more of the comic (sounds like the author didn't have that great of time though). (Really, more awesome covers would be enough. I'll admit to buying the first issue due mainly the cover, but also being mildly interested in the story line.)

I am afraid i kind of expect the same result here...

Your right the drug metaphor is interesting one....but its also a concept that i don't think as presented in the comic could really last that much more then a season. A graphic novel is about as much of it you could do and still be that story -and while you can add government agent, drugs of the week etc-its still well that's the story. And i am not sure its a story you could tell 22 times.

Its a shame though. Fly i think could have made a pretty good let say 5 million dollar indie superhero movie-as a TVshow(let alone a fox one).....ehhh..

I too was sad when they canned Firefly. At least they made Serenity to wrap it up, though, and explain everything.

I'd watch this series, but at the same time I'd be getting someone to watch ahead and warn me when they "cure" the dudes ex of her addiction. I don't want to watch that bit. Everything leading up to that will be awesome!
