I sometimes wonder if fans of Firefly identify a little too closely with the rebellious Browncoats on the show. The Browncoats fought for a losing cause, and the fans hope against hope the show will rise up like Lazarus and return to TV. It doesn’t help matters that the show’s creator, Joss Whedon, keeps teasing them.

“A sequel’s unlikely,” Whedon told Empire with a note of clear regret, “but it’s amazing what permutations of something can happen.”

Joss, Joss….why do you torture us the fanboys so?

(Of course, if the show was renewed, that would totally rock!)
