It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Joss Whedon’s amazing space western ‘Firefly’ was on the air. Though it was only with us for a short time, it gained quite the massive fan following and reemerged on the Science Channel recently in the form of reruns. Thanks to that network, the fans have been treated to some awesome reunions in the form of panels at San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con. Not only that, but a 10th anniversary special will air this Sunday, November 11th titled ‘Firefly: Browncoats Unite’ to celebrate this landmark work in science fiction.
However, there’s nearly two hours of footage that had to be cut from that hour-long special that will never air on television! There’s only one way to unlock this footage for Browncoats everywhere to see, and the key lies in the Twitterverse.
Science Channel issued a press release yesterday saying that all you need to do to see this footage is tweet to @ScienceChannel with the hashtag #FireflyNov11 and a new video will be released for every 5,000 tweets.
So what are you waiting for? Get tweeting, kids, so we can check out more videos of Captain Mal and the crew of Serenity! And if you feel like it, tweet us as well @ScienceFiction with your favorite memories of ‘Firefly’ and your thoughts on ‘Firefly: Browncoats Unite’, which airs Sunday, November 11th at 10:00pm after a day-long marathon of the show on the Science Channel.
