Wink SCI FI To Air Firefly Episodes in it's intended order

From the SciFi Wire:

SCI FI To Air Firefly Episodes in it's intended order

SCI FI Channel announced that it will air reruns of Fox's canceled SF series Firefly, including three episodes that never aired on Fox. SCI FI will air all 14 hours of the show, from creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), starting July 22, in the 7 p.m. ET/PT Friday timeslot. It will be followed by new episodes of Stargate SG-1 at 8, Stargate Atlantis at 9 and Battlestar Galactica at 10.

The channel will air the episodes in their intended order, beginning with Whedon's pilot. (Fox, by contrast, began with the show's third produced hour, "The Train Job," and aired the two-hour pilot at the end of the show's abortive first season.) SCI FI acquired exclusive rights to the show from 20th Century Television, which produced the show for the Fox Broadcasting Co.

Firefly centers on the ragtag crew of the firefly-class transport ship Serenity 500 years in the future, led by renegade Capt. Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), a veteran of the losing side in a galactic civil war.

Universal Pictures will release Serenity, a theatrical film based on Firefly, on Sept. 30. Universal and SCI FI are owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.

It's a good thing....

If they don't air the episodes in the proper order, Skiffy's gonna get a boatload of complaints. There are a lot more fans of Firefly (me included) than there were at the time that Fox gave it the premature ax. I don't think that they would want to ire them at this point as it will be the same audience that's waiting to see Serenity in September.

This is good promotional material for the movie - it gives them the chance to introduce the series to people that either didn't see the series on Fox or didn't bother to buy/rent the DVDs to catch up. I'll be interested to see what Firefly pulls ratings-wise even though it's technically a repeat show.

I'd like to think that there might be more to Firefly/Serenity's future than a 3 movie deal if it takes off.

Best,
Bryan
