I just joined up here, so, hello everyone!
I'm a ginormous (obsessed/devoted/dedicated) fan of Buffy and Angel. Unfortunately, I never got to see Firefly because I missed the series premiere, and then the TV stations where I'm from never really got on a regular/dependable schedule of showing it, if they did at all.
However, tonight I just saw the Serenity trailer for the second time (a different one this time, too), and all I have to say is..... "o...m......g"
How did this show ever get cancelled?
And, for all you hardcore/well-informed fans out there, are there any mumblings about the chance that either the show will get a second chance, or that there will be sequels to this movie? Because...... *dies* .... Serenity is going to effing rock.
Okay, I've gotten it into my head to make up some Firefly/Serenity Trivial Pursuit cards. The idea here would be that there would be the same number of categories, with the same colors etc. so that people can use whatever set they want for the pieces and then use the question cards like they would for any other set.
Here are the categories from Star Wars Trivial Pursuit, which I think we could adapt for Firefly/Serenity:
Star Wars Trivial Pursuit
• The Cantina: This section contains questions that pertain to all the scenes, aliens, cameos, and more that give the films atmosphere. This includes locations that are merely passed through and characters that are on screen for a very short time.
• The Force: This section contains questions about the cause and effect of major events in the saga, like who caused a memorable action or what happened at a specific location.
• Heroes, Villains & Scoundrels: This section contains questions that pertain to all main characters including leading characters such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader, as well as key supporting roles such as C-3PO, Darth Maul, Leia, Jabba, etc.
• The Saga: This section contains questions that pertain to plot. For example, players will be asked questions like "Who says this line?" or "Who is missing from this scene?"
• A Galaxy Far, Far Away: This section contains questions that pertain to significant locations including planets, cities, specific buildings and features within them.
• Hyperspace: This is the wild card category where anything about Star Wars could be asked.
So, what do I need? Questions! I can come up with a bunch, but my brain only works the one way. So, I'm betting that I'd get a bunch of good ones from other fans. :) Also leave me a way to get ahold of you if you want to know where I post them when I'm done.
EDIT: To answer some of the responses just in case people don't read through them:
I don't have any questions so far. :) Honestly, I was figuring I'd let people toss them up for a while and then fill in the areas that there aren't enough in when the time came. ;)
Feel free to flood comments! But, if you'd rather email them, you can send them to:
I should probably add that answers to the questions would be great. :) Most of these I've known so far, but when we get into the harder ones, I'll have to at least check to make sure I'm right and going through all the episodes with questionaires would be trixy. :)
