7 Key Moments You Missed from the Firefly 10th Anniversary Panel

I’m not the biggest firefly fan out there certainly however I have seen it all, and read all of the comics(I think). With that said I do love firefly and I was very exited to see what the 10th anniversary panel at SDCC was going to be. It did not disappoint, but your lives our busy, I know that. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of the best moments funny or insightful. Without further ado:

The entire cast was there, excluding Gina Tores, Ron Glass, Jewel Staite, and Morena Baccarin unfortunately. Joss Whedon, Tim Minear, and Jose Molina were there representing the creators and writers.

How did the idea form?

Firefly began in Joss’ mind as a piece of sci-fi that would feel real, like a piece of history. He wanted to tell a immigration story, but couldn’t do it without spaceships.

Get Geek’s 1st Anniversary

The sites a year old. Crazy, so the sites getting a little make over. We’ve been slowly enacting new content over the past few weeks, like the podcast and my supernatural civil war story, (part 3’s up today). We can only hope that these features, plus whatever else we decide to throw at the wall in the next year will stick, and make the website all that it can be. Below is a compiled list of posts that I wanted to highlight, to show the growth of the site and just some of our favorite moments.

Robocop

One of the first posts I did, was on Robocop. Looking back on it now, there are a ton of typos, yet it still is a pretty solid effort and if you want to reminisce about Robocop it’s a great way to do that. I hadn’t really found my style; I’m not sure I have even now, but you can definitely tell I was going for something different with these early posts compared to the ones I write now. Oh ya, about the geek points thing: I had this weird(still kinda cool, but too ambitious) idea that we would assign “geek points” to things to give some order to what are the most essential viewings/readings, ect for geeks. Not a bad idea right, but the infrastructure at wordpress doesn’t allow for anything that specific.

Buffy

The next two go hand in hand. First off my top 10 reasons to watch Buffy. It got TIM to watch it, though I don’t think he’s watched much of Angel. Beware though Buffy is a gateway drug to the whole Whedon verse. Which brings us to the top 10 things I learned from Joss Whedon’s comic-con pannel . This post is fun, despite some of the info being outdated(Cabin in the Woods is already out for instance) but its still a good insight into the man, the myth, the guy who says Grrr, arg!
