Farewell post from Captain Tightpants

Nathan Fillion (aka Cpt. Mal Reynolds) posted a little farewell note on the Firefly board (well, everyone did, but his was the best one). Included below:

So, here we all are. It seems that we are a living embodiment for the show. We are Browncoats, fighting a war we were never meant to win, but fighting nonetheless. The Fox Alliance has spoken, leaving us to make due with the cards we’ve been dealt. If you are anything like me, you’ve been pulling the record tabs off your precious Firefly VHS tapes, pushing along through your life still bitterly fighting the war from within.

I love Firefly. Walking around the cargo bay, the bridge, it’s all been terribly painful. It does still live inside me, though. With every “gorram” or “them as can” I throw unknowingly into my daily conversation, or everytime I sit in the captain’s chair that lives in my heart, I smile with the knowledge of what we’ve accomplished here. We may have been on the losing side, still not convinced it was the wrong one. I can’t remember who said that.
Keep sending those postcards into to UPN. Every little bit helps, and if ever you see me on the street, just nod and say, “Captain.” You’ll make my day.

  1. I feel really good about sayin that with the end of Firefly that there is nothing worth watching on Fox.
    Frelling Sci-Fi is getting really, really close.
    And the mind boggles at what Disney will do with the Farscape properties when they buy Henson.
