writes, With less than two weeks to go before the
Dec. 9 Firefly DVD release, I thought I’d share some of
the ancillary Firefly activities I’ve been covering over on
(unabashed plug) my
SciScoop website
. The latest newsstand issue of
SFX, a British sci-fi magazine, has an excellent 1

page article full of color photographs, spoiler-free reviews
and Joss’ comments on all the Firefly episodes as well as
some information on the upcoming Firefly movie. Joss
will be discussing the Firefly DVD and upcoming movie at
the L.A. Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention on
December 21. Early
DVD reviews
are giving the DVD package five of five
stars, naturally. A
Firefly fan
has produced a Firefly commentary DVD
project of his own as part of his work towards a Master’s
degree in Communications. His DVD is available via email
request from his webpage, which includes a pretty good
four-minute intro video clip entitled “What Is Firefly?” in
both RealMedia and Windows format. Wavsite as well as
a new, pretty good fanzine site start-up called “Still
Flying
“, which is of course the Firefly motto. Of
particular Also up are some great Firefly
audio clips
at interest in this initial effort are the
extensive list of other Firefly site links and an exclusive
interview with Jewel
Staite/Kaylee
.
I don’t have time to check out all of those links, but
it looks good to me.

    You would think
    that with all the great reviews, that some network or another would pick up the show.

    Maybe one of my friends will convince one of them to pick it up, just so I will stop bitching about it. :)

    Huh. My cut-and-paste gets a little garbled there towards the end. Sorry about that. At least the links are all right.

        “Still Flying”, which is of course the Firefly motto.

        Funny, could have sworn it was “You can’t take the sky from me”.

        I think your site got its dynamic DNS number re-assigned, or maybe is getting Slashdotted, or something. I can’t load the pictures.

        Please send me a quick email. If the pictures aren’t overly large (smaller than 60K or so each), send them as attachments as well (one per email, please, as my mail system automatically rejects emails much larger than that). If they are bigger than that, send me an email anyway, as I’m sure we can work out something.

          Ummm…not sure what you mean. If it’s the 7 scanned pages of the SFX article, those aren’t on MY (SciScoop) site; they’re on this one by somebody else. But if your’re Dave, then your’re the guy who put them up in the first place, right? Or are you a different Dave? Or am I just toally confused or not who you’re talking to? You can send ME an email at [email protected] …..
