Arthur, King of Time and Space


Scott (PvP) Kurtz has written a commentary on Serenity [screwy HTML on the page means you have to scroll down a screen or two to find it with this link] which I find flawed.

Kurtz seems a relative newcomer to whedonophilia. I recall maybe the vaguest references to Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel in PvP's archives or old newposts. But when Kurtz discovered the Firefly DVD box set it was all over his website; and when Episode III premiered he started selling t-shirts with the motto swiped from one of his strips' punchline, "Joss Whedon is my master now."

In his review of Serenity Kurtz posits that the other two Firefly movies rumored to be on Whedon's drawing board must be prequels to Serenity, based on the air of conclusion that permeates Serenity. "You can't have Firefly without Wash," he says. "River's story has been Firefly's unifying theme, and now it's wrapped up," he says. What Kurtz doesn't seem to realize is that on Whedon's previous tv series he did this sort of thing every year. Serenity isn't the patch for what would have been Firefly's series finale, it's the patch for what would have been Firefly's first season finale.

Of course the disappointing box office receipts for Serenity have cast major doubts on whether more movies will be made. Serenity DVD sales may or may not resurrect them. But comics companies are all over Whedon too; there's already been a Firefly miniseries, from Dark Horse, set between the tv series and Serenity. I'm confident the stories will be told.
