Blue Glove Assault
Time to Spread the Signal
Canceled- a word that strikes fear in the hearts of any Browncoat. We all know what happened. Firefly was cancelled. But there is hope, my fellow Browncoats. I give you one word:
Yep. That is our shining light. That's our angels comin' down to rescue us. Why?
Awhile back, there was a show called Jericho. It was about some post-apocalyptic world or something with nukes... the point is, it had a fan following. Then, what happened? It was canceled. But did Jericho's fan base let it die? No- they fought back.
Every fan they could muster sent in peanuts to the television executives. This massive onslaught lasted awhile, until finally the execs gave in and started up another season.
Why nuts? In the final episode Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich) borrowed the historic phrase "NUTS" in response to a final offer of surrender from a hostile neighboring town. CBS decided to cancel the show, and fans rose to save Jericho by sending, you got it, NUTS to CBS executives.
Except we're gonna do it a little different. You know us Browncoats, we just gotta be different. We need to do like Jericho before us- but more than that. Our fan base stretches across continents, across oceans... Everywhere. We are going to rally. As one.
So- what we're going to do is this: every Browncoat, from costume wearers to casual viewers, is going to send in to FOX a pair of disposable blue rubber gloves. With these gloves will be a card reading "Can't stop the signal." These will all go out on the 20th of September, the anniversary of the airing of Firefly.
Why blue gloves? Well, the last episode of OUR show had a shot of blue rubber gloves, deepening the mystery of River a little bit more.

Address to send the gloves and cards to:

Short n' Sweet:
What we're doin': Sending out blue gloves.
When we're doin' it: September 20th, 2010
Why we're doin' it: We want our Trilogy! And Firefly back!
Who's doin' it: Can't Stop the Serenity
As the 2005 theatrical release of Serenity made clear, Firefly was a science fiction concept that deserved a second chance. Browncoats knew it all along, and with this well-packaged DVD set, those who missed the show's original broadcasts can see what they missed.
Firefly got off to a shaky start when network executives (*cough* FOX *cough*) demanded an action-packed one-hour premiere "The Train Job"; in hindsight the intended two-hour pilot (also titled "Serenity," and oddly enough, the final episode aired) provides a better introduction to the show's concept and splendid ensemble cast. But we know all that already.
So how did we get the DVD's if it was such a flop on the television? Simple.
The release of the DVD would not have been possible with out the Diehard Browncoat Fans. These fans would'nt give up,or give in. We salute the Browncoats in not taking "No" for an answer. And for showing that if you have a will there will be a way.
That pretty much says it all.
