Captain on deck at official Serenity board

Wednesday 1 September 2004, by Webmaster

Nathan Fillion wonders "What have you been doing to convert the unenlightened, hedonistic masses?"

Once again, I have come to the boards to see where all those Browncoats are, what they are doing, and how they may be speading the Serenity word. The movie is finished. Friday was my last day, Saturday the wrap party, and now, my days are my own. I have promised myself to get on top of some appointments, a carpentry project, and travel arrangements for a well deserved vacation. Yet so far, I haven’t been able to pry myself away from the Universal lot.

Yesterday I darkened the doors of our editors in order to scam a copy of the gag reel for myself and some of my castmates (whom I later met for dinner). At the same time, I pestered Lisa Lassek to show me dailies from the final days shooting and together we fantasized about the finished product being a box office smash/little picture that could.

Now is the time to let this baby of ours go of to summer camp, put her in the capable hands of the counsellors at Zoic, have music and sound put to her, and let her grow up. It will be hard, letting go, but we have done all we can. Rest assured, Joss will be holding her hand the entire way. He’ll be making sure she wears a life jacket on canoe outtings, and watching that she doesn’t sneak across the lake to make out with the boys at Camp Flibbidee Joop.

As for spreading the Serenity word? So many people I see (my deli, sushi restaurant, and hardware store) say "Where have you been?" Filming the best movie of all time." I reply. "Serenity?" they ask. "Yes, Serenity indeed." I have also purchased 11 sets of the DVDs. I am driving them around to cast members homes to get them signed, and then I shall distribute them to the needy and loud spoken. One condition applies. The set shall be watched, then used to convert a least three people between now and Aprill 22. If among my friends someone already has a set, my autographed set shall replace theirs, and their old set shall be passed on for keeps, honoring the same condition.

What have you been doing to convert the unenlightened, hedonistic masses? How shall we wake the word from their Firefly-less slumber. Is there anything illegal about brainwashing or Firefly as a cult? Think of the tax breaks and the enormous amount of power I’ll weild and abuse as a high priest, or just Captain. Ron can be high priest.

Be good to each other,

Nathan Fillion

    He sounds like a great guy and no offense to him personally—but I will NEVER go to see another/new Joss Whedon project. Never again. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me three times—roll me up in a flour, cover me in enchilada sauce, bake me as a burrito, mix your metaphors, stake your claim, toss your cookies and burn my bridges with JW—no more sucker punch plot lines for me, baby. Still love this site—cause, I love these actors, still may see a Spike movie cause of you know who—but Joss and me are through, as in; baked to a crisp,lights out, left the buidling roaring ready or not here comes the end of my world with storytellers running with sharp objects. Take a lesson from Chekov, baby—you wanna wax heartbreak? Learn from the Good Doctor and do it with a healing attachment. Can’t even enjoy my old shows anynore cuz right now BTVS=those terrible eight words and say no more. And ATS=Hoooray for Autocrats, GO premptive strike regardless and the ends justify the means. THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS?! Angel gets the hero’s position in the story—HE gets to slay the dragon after murdering a holy man/brother figure? Fool me three times? HA!

    Preaching has been done... and on an INTERNATIONAL scale. Okay, I’m only talkin’ Canada and England, but the Firefly/Serenity conversion effort has crossed borders and passports were involved. Oh, and there was different currency and driving on the wrong side of the road! I can confess that I was one of two acolytes instrumental in getting the exec producers of THREE other drama shows (um, ones that are still on the air) to utter the words "Tell the folks at Mutant Enemy that we LOVE Firefly. I don’t understand. Why was the show cancelled? I can’t believe it was cancelled. It’s such a great show!" :-D I have loaned my own (alas, unautographed) set of DVDs to friends. I have hosted friends over for an umpteenth viewing of said DVDs. Yes, Capt’n, the enclaves and parishes are forming, the missions are being set up and sent off. The biggest complaint after watching the DVDs: "THAT’S IT?!? Where’s the rest? WE WANT MORE!" Hopefully, the newly devout masses will conjure some patience and not turn into an ugly mob. I mean, April 2005 is a touch far off...
