Tonight on the Science Channel - Browncoats Unite. The highly anticipated reunion starts at 10pm EST. In the meantime, why not read this article about why Firefly has endured for a decade.

I got the science channel!
I've been watching the marathon all day and I'll probably watch Serenity after the special. It's been a good day.
It doesn't matter how many kajilliony-billiony times I re-watch Firefly - if there's a marathon on, I'll watch it. There's something to be said about watching it w/ a bunch of other fannity-type peoples. There's more than a few of us co-watching it on that twitter-thang.

And of course, looking forward to Browncoats Unite. I'll check in later to exclaim with all y'alls over any new stuff. ; ]
Loving today! Love this marathon.
I wish the Science channel in Canada would have answered my email. I doubt they'll play it up here, or if they do, it'll be a year from now. I just hope someone youtubes it or something.
I loved that. Now I'm just waiting for them to release it for us purchasing masses.
This was the best birthday present ever! :)
It made me cry. AGAIN.
Loved it. Just wish it was longer.
God that was wonderful. A celebration of the show, the cast and crew, and the audience. A pleasure to watch. And I'm sure I'll watch it again. And again. And cry again. They never fail to make me cry. What a sap. :)

Loved hearing the stories that they had considered doing. And Inara's secret! Though that episode about Inara and the reavers sounded particularly brutal. Not sure if I'm happy or sad we never got to see that one.
Is it viewable online anywhere?
Doesn't seem to be. Might be an idea for 20th Century Fox to reissue the DVD and include the Science Channel special and the footage that didn't get broadcast. That would be a license to make money.
I couldn't stop laughing when Alan Tudyk told that story about London! Great special & I love those marathons!
And the secret of Inara's syringe? I didn't know that before. Dark stuff.
That was a good show.
My husband is on a business trip, and his hotel room gets the channel, so I was sort of able to watch via webcam. I didn't catch everything and couldn't see much, but what I could follow I'd really like to see again.
So grateful I have the Science Channel. Watched the marathon, watched Browncoats:Unite and cried. Out of joy for what was, out of sadness for what wasn't and for the wonderful community of folks that we all get to belong to. It was shiny indeed.
Absolutely LOVED it but just one question: No interviews with Ron?
Yeah, I was a bit curious about the lack of Ron Glass as well.
Great special, but yeah, no Ron Glass? A member of the family was missing. Why?
I just watched, it was wonderful!
made me cry
I missed Ron, too. He's 67 now though, so he may be retired or something like that. Do actors ever officially retire?
Yes. Sean Connery and Peter O'Toole officially retired.
I really hope I will be able to see this at some point :'(
I'm surprised that the Science Channel hasn't put this on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play or whatever as there are quite a few people without even the possibility of getting the Science channel who would pay good money to see it.
I'm about 15 minutes in, and while I'm also missing Ron, I'm more bothered by the fact that Joss isn't sitting at the head of the table with the crew!
So far he's only been seen in archival footage!
That syringe story! Oh my god!

And then Nathan's story about rescuing those people and leaving. I don't know why but somehow that made me think of Doctor Who.

Dark stuff. Would've loved it even more as actual on-screen material, naturally.
