Promoting the 'Verse by using the Force. How some cross-over fans from the StarWars community plugged Serenity Day.

An interesting comparison made between the themes of both shows. Concludes with a resounding endorsement of the 'Verse.

I see how many "Star Wars" fans would be intriguied by the Firefly/Serenity 'verse. The original three created a universe where even though they flew around the glaxay, people were ultimately people (even when they weren't human). Most of them are just trying to survive. If a 'big bad' gets in the way of their survival,their right to just be, well, then it must be defeated...or avoided.

Didn't someone somewhere say that Mal Reynolds was the "modern day" Han Solo?
Got very choked up over that. Honestly. There were tears. Very touching.
I'm talking about a show that asks what happens to the Luke Skywalkers of the universe that see not only their families destroyed, but their friends shot, and their cause utterly wiped out.

Interesting comparison, I liked his analysis of Mal. Was the June 23 Serenity thing something circulating mostly in the SW fandom, or was it a more general effort? I don't remember seeing anything about it before.

Not just SW. :-)
That was very touching and well written. Cheers to all involved.
My favorite part is from another link (it was at the end of the article) What is Firefly by Darth Vicomte . http://blogs.starwars.com/Blogs/88

Keep in mind that Firefly is an intelligent show, and therefore only appreciated by intelligent people. You don't want to be stupid, do you?

Very well written! The author has a certain eloquence. Be sure to check out the comments link at the bottom of both articles, very fun/interesting to read non-Browncoat conversation on the show/movie. I/like/slashes?
