As the moderator of this fine panel Jeff Jenson so aptly remarks, at this point Firefly needs little introduction regarding it’s significance and importance in television, sci-fi, westerns and fandom.
It is incredibly how the love for this show has only grown over the past ten years, and when Nathan Fillion said he thought it was the worst thing when the show died, but he realized that it really would have been the worst thing would be if it stayed dead. It’s the dedication of the fans, but also the actors, the writers and creator, Joss Whedon’s love and dedication to Firefly, Serenity and the legions of Browncoats who have made this world one where Firefly lives on.
I have to admit, I got a little weepy reading the live-blogs and can’t even express how much I would have loved to be there. Being able to watch this live is certainly confirms that this Firefly reunion was emotional all around.

It’s too bad that Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite, Gina Torres and Ron Glass couldn’t make it, but the Summer Glau and the boys together at the reunion panel was such a treat.
Here’s a question for all of you: Is Adam Baldwin wearing the same brown coat he wore on Castle?
The Science Channel is shooting a Firefly 10th Anniversary Special entitled “Browncoats Unite” at Comic Con that is set to air on Sunday, November 11 along with an all day Firefly marathon. I can’t wait!
