'Firefly' Returns To Cable TV, Space Westerns Are Awesome Again
Oh my, something truly AMAZING is happening! Starting March 6th, the Science Channel is going to start re-airing the entire Firefly series, from the pilot all the way to the finale!
What does this mean? Well, for starters we will all get to relive the painfully short 14 episode arch of the show, starring our very own eco-hunk Nathan Fillion (the dude is into electric cars and played Captain Hammer in the Dr. Horrible web series, ’nuff said!).
For those of you who haven’t seen the show, it’s a space western (that’s right) set in the year 2517 that follows the adventures of Serenity, a renegade crew on a “Firefly-class” spaceship. It was created by Joss Whedon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and is really funny and action packed. Basically, just watch it!
But as an extra bonus, the Science Channel is planning to end each episode with a segment from renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku,who will discuss the scientific elements of the show and the potential for space travel in our own future. Pretty cool if you ask me!
The show will re-air starting March 6th at 8 p.m., and will be on every Sunday after that.
