Joss Whedon's new show
From the creator of the famed Buffy The Vampire Slayer comes a new HBO sci-fi series called The Nevers.

Quote:The series is described as a sci-fi epic about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.

Yes, but Firefly wasn't all that great.

Poppycock. If it had been as great as the viewers claim was, it would have lasted more than a single season. I'm a huge fan of Joss Whedon. Nothing was better than BTVS. He has tried to reclaim the glory since that show, but he continually fails. Firefly was simply one of those failings. The closest he came to a reclamation was Dollhouse, but even that was a failure. Hopefully, since HBO is taking it up, The Nevers can succeed where he has been failing. However, I doubt a "cable" station will save him. I honestly believe he had one success and was never capable of reclaiming it.

Fox killed Firefly with timeslots. It’s probably his most beloved show. I remember being at DragonCon back in 2011 I think, still years after it had been cancelled, and the show’s panel was packed, standing room only in the biggest room in the hotel (we’re talking several thousand people).

Also, if it were so bad, it wouldn’t have resulted in a feature film.

Wasn't the film only made to wrap up the show after it was cancelled?

I'd hardly call that a reason for the show to not have been cancelled.

RE: Joss Whedon's new show
I mean, I don’t often hear of production studios acquiring the rights of failed TV shows and funding full length movies for them. Maybe I’m wrong and it’s a common thing.

Someone believed in the show enough to agree to funding the movie. Also, apparently the DVD sold out in 24 hours after the pre-order was announced. Face it, the show has fans, lots of them. I prefer to count success by how many people appreciate the work, not how long a network chose to fund it. The fact that it still has large amounts of fans to this day, with only 13 or so episodes and a movie, speaks volumes.
