Objects in Space

“Firefly is a good design. People don’t appreciate the substance of things. Objects in space. People miss out on what’s solid.” —Jubal Early

Go to Firefly: Immediate Assistance for information on petitioning other networks (like UPN) to pick up Firefly. You can send a free, full-color postcard from USPS NetPost.

Firefly Cancelled

Not surprisingly, Fox has cancelled its brilliant show Firefly, after placing it in the 8 PM Friday slot, withholding its pilot, airing the initial episodes out of order, pre-empting it with baseball, and failing to advertise it. Joss Whedon promises not to give up, but if the show does come back it won’t be until next fall. Mac guy Jason Snell has written the best eulogy I’ve seen.

Thanks to the cast and everyone at Mutant Enemy. Your work has brought me much laughter and joy.

What to do now? Why enjoy “Objects in Space,” of course—it starts in five minutes.

Take my love, take my land
Take me to where I cannot stand
I don’t care ’cause I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me

Take me out to the black
Tell ’em I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me

There’s no place I could be
Since I found Serenity
You can’t take the sky from me
