films. But it wasn't that great of a stand-alone cimimatic experience that was required for anyone to buy a ticket who wasn't already familiar with the TV show. I think it made its money back, which was about all anyone could have hoped for.
But I will continue to tilt at that windmill and maintain that the show could flourish if all the stars in the 'verse aligned and it could somehow resume production. There's this thing called "buzz", you see, and few TV shows have ever had more of that once they left the air than Firefly. Hey, I'm a Browncoat. We may have lost the war, but we keep flying.
Maybe it could follow in the steps of Star Trek. Cancelled after 3 seasons, but movies and new series (not with the original characters) followed.
