Can't Stop the Serenity

By Jenny Coon Peterson July 31st, 2009

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?

Okay, tutorial: Joss Whedon, who created "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," also created a gem of a show called "Firefly."

"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."
