You Tube channel Digging Deeper takes a look at Joss Whedon’s Serenity and explains why the movie succeeds (as film – it wasn’t exactly a box office smash) across multiple genres.

I’m not sure I’d agree with everything said here, but I do think Firefly and Serenity were far more visionary than many people initially realized.

Check out the video below and feel free to share your thoughts.

Remember that 18-inch Serenity plush that QMx unveiled last year? Well, now you can have a mini that clocks in at a very portable 6-inches.

Mama and Baby Serenity races, anyone?

Jesse L. Martin and his Flash co-stars Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes sang a gospel version of the Firefly theme song that will have you once again crying over the show’s demise. They did it as a thank you after Joss Whedon made a large donation to their Kickstarter.

The group is working on a short film called The Letter Carrier that tells the story of a black family in the 1860s hiding from slavery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The story is told through music, making this thank you especially appropriate.

See Joss’s tweet and the video after the break.

serenity hull

Firefly fans, I think you’re going to need to free up some wall space and start clearing your credit cards because QMx just announced their new Serenity Hull Art Artisan Replica and it’s a beaut.

The replica is 1:3 scale, and made of aircraft-grade aluminum. It’s also painted with aircraft-grade primer and paint and then weathered to show a little wear and tear.

Pre-orders start Monday, February 9th at 10 a.m. PST.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

whedon slayer theory edit

The Whedonverse is a wonderful place and more than one fan has put forth a theory that many Joss Whedon shows are connected in one form or another.

This cross universe Slayer theory, however, may be my favorite so far. It’s also the most comprehensive.

Check it out after the break and prepare to have your mind blown.

firefly fistful of credits

We all know the primary goal of the crew aboard Serenity: Get a job, do said job, get paid. Done and done. It sounds so simple, but it seems as though jobs never go as they should. You can experience the frustration of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew in the new board game Firefly Fistful of Credits. It doesn’t come with a cool Serenity Yahtzee cup like this game and the board isn’t as complex as Firefly: The Game, but it’s nothing to sneeze at. Here’s what it’s all about:

The game features 3 distinct heist scenarios inspired by the episodes “Bushwhacked,” “The Train Job,” and “Ariel;” each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and Heist card, which details unique objectives from the show that must be accomplished in order to win.

The game is designed for 2-4 players, and each of those players can choose any two Serenity crew members to team up to complete the heist.

You can pre-order now to receive Firefly Fistful of Credits in April.

Serenity is used to haul cargo in Firefly – legal and otherwise. You can use her to store your virtual cargo with this snazzy 8GB flash drive from ThinkGeek. A Serenity USB drive was first proposed by incubot last year, but despite having an official license, Fox told them they couldn’t use Kickstarter to raise funds. They still made the product available for purchase, but fulfilling orders has been a slow process. However, ThinkGeek seems to swooped in with a similar product (which may or may not be incubot’s design). Either way, it’s significantly cheaper and in-stock now.

See a couple more photos of the information smuggling Serenity after the break.

The level of squee that happened when I saw this Firefly Magnetic Poetry by ThinkGeek would likely be considered embarrassing if it was seen by the public.

Magnetic poetry is already fun, but Firefly magnetic poetry with the Firefly font and words like gorram and ruttin’? I may paint a wall of my house with magnetic paint!

The set contains 428 words (and suffixes) from the show and even has a a magnet of Serenity and the Firefly logo.

I know I’m gonna get one. How about you?
