Welcome back to AVQ&A, where we throw out a question for discussion among the staff and readers. Consider this a prompt to compare notes on your interface with pop culture, to reveal your embarrassing tastes and experiences, and to ponder how our diverse lives all led us to convene here together. Got a question you’d…
It’s not exactly a second season, but Firefly fans should still be excited to see that the show is getting a special edition 15th anniversary Blu-ray release this month, and you can save a few bucks off MSRP by preordering.
Westworld wasn’t the first TV show or movie to blend both Western and scifi elements—but it did it better than most. Still, while the genre has yielded some high-profile stinkers (Wild Wild West, Cowboys and Aliens), there are still plenty of amusing choices out there to help fill the long, long wait for Westworld’s…
Ron Glass, known for playing Shepherd Book on the acclaimed Joss Whedon show Firefly and its follow-up film Serenity, has passed away at the age of 71. No other details have been released at this time.
Opening credit mashups are a helluva lot of fun. Star Wars Minute has taken Star Wars Rebels and set it to Firefly’s Ballad of Serenity, the show’s opening credits. It works surprisingly well!
Winter Storm Jonas pretty much has the East Coast stuck inside this weekend, which means that you’re probably sitting in front of your television scrolling through Netflix. Allow us to help.
We may never get another live-action Firefly movie or TV show. So every bit of Firefly media that we do get is precious—and that explains why Browncoats became so excited about Firefly Online, the online role-playing game. But what’s become of this project?
Spaceships? Weird characters? Endless amounts of cheesy cowboy music? Alright, Rebel Galaxy, let’s do this.
What makes a living weapon? Well, first of all, living, obviously. But like normal weapons, living weapons are designed solely to hurt and kill others. They aren’t soldiers, who can take a variety of orders, or assassins, who may choose to kill in secret. Living weapons use their powers for one reason: destroying…
Welcome to a new feature: Point/Counterpoint, where we debate, vehemently, angrily, over issues of extreme importance. Today: Does Firefly still matter?
Some heroes bare their souls in the midst of their epic adventures. And some heroes just bare, well, everything. Science fiction and fantasy is full of hilariously weird moments of naked truth — and here are the 19 funniest nude scenes of all time. It's work-safe!
Everybody loves a huge space empire. A far-flung interplanetary civilization combines the romance of exploration with the pride and cool-factor of building something. But not every star-spanning regime is a viable proposition. Here are 10 star-empires from science fiction that make economic sense.
"The TV show Firefly is a big inspiration for us," Dreadnought project director Peter Holzapfel was saying to me recently during a San Francisco preview event. "So is Sid Meier's Pirates." And then, for just a moment, that ceased to matter as a ship ten times the size of mine warped right in front of me.
Announced today at Comic-Con: All of the original Firefly stars will reprise their characters for the online game! And Alan Tudyk is playing multiple roles. Also showing up will be Michael Fairman as the crime lord Niska, who is apparently hiring.
Fan favorite Castle—and Firefly!—star Nathan Fillion was the guest of Conan O'Brien yesterday, and well, they've discussed things I didn't expect: DC and Marvel-themed nail polish.
Star Wars art doesn't get any more religious than this. Hero-Glyphs is a series by artist Josh Ln, transforming well-known superheroes and other pop culture icons into hieroglyphs. His latest pieces feature Star Wars, Ghostbusters and (surprise, surprise) Firefly:
Browncoats rejoice! Joss Whedon's space Western Firefly may never return to television, but the 'verse goes on. And soon, you'll be able to have a ship and crew of your own, when Firefly Online launches for the PC and Mac. We've got an exclusive first look at the ships, the guns, the characters and more.
Serenity Flies Again, Sort Of: Okay, it's just a cloud. But it's a cloud that looks remarkably like a certain beloved Firefly-class transport ship.

"Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill 'em right back!" Firefly—Joss Whedon's beloved cult sci-fi TV series that spun out in the film Serenity—may not be all the way dead. This teaser from Dark Horse Comics is a big hint that the publisher's getting ready to tease Browncoats with new adventures for Mal and…
Geeky pop culture sometimes feels like a collection of cool stuff: "Hero" moments and "holy shit did you see that" images. And sometimes it feels like the people who update our most beloved stories want to include those moments — without doing anything to set them up properly. The premature nerdgasm is a serious…
