Honestly, who would want to stop the Serenity? Okay, maybe Reavers. And the Alliance, surely. But, me? No. No way. It is a product of the almighty Joss Whedon, and therefore I'm a fan.
Raise your hand, who doesn't know what the hell I'm on about?
"Firefly," being an expert amalgamation of humor, drama and a dash of horror, was quickly canceled by the evil, evil Fox (a network with a history of canceling great shows. See: Arrested Development). This was all in 2002-2003, and fans were left with just 14 near-perfect episodes (only 11 of which actually aired) and a "Firefly"-shaped whole in their nerd hearts. The DVDs of the show garnered a cult following " which is when, I'm ashamed to say, I first picked up the show " and that cult following turned into a major motion picture: "Serenity."
Since then, Joss Whedon has screened his film at theaters nationwide in support of Equality Now, a human rights organization. Can't Stop the Serenity is landing in Oklahoma for one night " Aug. 8 at The Circle Cinema in Tulsa. The evening starts at 8 p.m. with a screening of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," another Whedon creation, before starting "Serenity."
