What Joss Whedon series focused on the crew and passengers of the space vessel Serenity?
"Whedon's Creek: Angst Goes to Space" - valmontheights
(Oh, that could be anything on the WB nowadays... -CV)
"Holy crap, I thought you said Wil Wheaton. *whew* that was a close one." - thisisbullcrap
"I really want to pronounce this guy's name "Josh Wheldon." I blame him for clearly spelling it wrong." - moocow1985
"I have no idea, but I would like to thank LJDQ for the geekgasm that came from the mental image of Sarah Michelle Gellar in a Seven of Nine catsuit." - sansseraphim
"Buffy the Space Cowboy... Layer." - caropal
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Next Generation" - drewbeartx
"'Buffy in Space.' People just watched it for the zero-gravity breasts." - soimpossible414
"wouldn't that have been a GREAT sequel to Cocoon? I can just see it now. Serenity, brought to you by the makers of Cocoon. When Depends just don't hold water any more." - sweetjane_69
"DAMN YOU, STUPID FOX EXECUTIVES! YOU TOTALLY RUINED WHAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST GENRE SCI-FI TV SERIES EVER! I HOPE THAT THE GENIUS WHO MADE THE FINAL DECISIONS GETS BOILS ON HIS OR HER NETHER REGIONS. YOU ARE GOING TO THE SPECIAL HELL." - trishalynn, echoing the sentiments of a great many of you.
(Fangirls are funny. -AL)
"Star Trek: Serenity. Where T'Pol was a prostitute for hire, Archer didn't have a prison fetish and cowboys more cowboys OMG WE GET THE IDEA ALREADY WILD WEST IN SPACE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD JUST STOP" - lots42
(Haters are funnier. -CV)
"Firefly, otherwise known as the 'topic of discussion most likely to make me ignore the next eighteen things you say.'" - fragbert
(We'll see you back at question #2, then... -CV)
"You can watch the entire series in a day, ya know. Yep, get up in the mornings, sit on your ass in front of the computer all day eating doritos, drinking rootbeer, and watching illegally downloaded copies of Firefly DVDs. That's the life!" - the_wanlorn
"Firefly. I never watched it, but I've been told it was like a blinking light in the dark." - whiski_sour
"I never watched the show, so I am unable to comment on the possible pyromaniac tendencies of any member of the crew." - pocketmouse
"Firefly, which is kind of odd because I didn't think fireflies lived in space. Except according to Timon in The Lion King. So, yes, Firefly. If Timon says there's fireflies in space, there's fireflies in space, dammit." - eridanusus
"Ahh, Firefly. Sorta like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, but with less teen angst and more hookers. I liked Firefly better. Because of the hookers." - nakedblueninja
"Much as I love Joss, who the fuck designs a spaceship to look like a firefly?" - marasca
(I don't know what kind of weird-ass fireflies you have in DC, but up here, they look NOTHING like the spaceship on the box cover. -CV)
"I do not, in fact, watch TV. I have never seen this show, nor any advertisement relating to it. However, as I hang out on livejournal, I can tell you with 99% surity that the show in question is "Firefly". This says more sad things about my life than I'd care to admit." - gethsemane
"NED! Those damned fireflies keep landing on the BBQ! You want yours with hickory or mesquite?" - dhutch
"I bet the reason Firefly didn't stay on the air is because Whedon named the ship after an incontinence product." - sskipstress
Correct Answer: Firefly
"I always preferred the Shirley Hemphill spin-off: Serenity Now! I especially liked the one where “Rerun” makes a guest appearance in a dance-off against a Reaver. Hilarity ensues." - slickrickt
