I made some Fruity Oaty Bars for Christmas! They turned out pretty well!

I'll let you all know what others think!

THINK! We are having a forum discussion about a TV series that was shown for less than 14 episodes.



Okay. So, what should we be gripping?

Got the DVD on Wednesday, and watched it three times. Must've lost my grip.

BTW, I love the show (and movie), and this is my first post here. Only good thing about my not having discovered this show sooner, was that I would've been disappointed to see it end so prematurely, contemporaneous to the event. As a late-comer, I got to read about it's demise (a few years after the fact, granted), before I got hooked.

Welcome to the foray, Cartoon! I'm a fairly new newcomer also(saw Serenity late October...moonbrained fan ever since)
You'll love it here. One big shiny family. I'm really impressed with this fanbase, too. How often does a cancelled tv show get made into a movie that is now a best-seller, with it's tv series that came out 3 years ago selling just as well? Boggles the mind!(in a good way!)

Thanks. I've been reading the posts for a few weeks before deciding to jump in, myself.

I sort of recall hearing about "Firefly" before it originally aired, but I never watched it -- probably because I heard a reference to the Companion character (and not being as "progressive" as many today), I opted not to watch.

My next brush with the Firefly universe was in seeing the trailer in August, while taking my nephew & niece to see some other film. I was so intrigued by the trailer, that I ran to see "Serenity" on the first day, Since then, I was hooked.

And thanks to the Sci-Fi channel, I'm getting to see the series.

While the show's not perfect, it's one of the best written (and acted) shows I've ever seen. The actors have done wonders with their characters, and it's a shame the series didn't last longer (or hasn't been subsequently renewed).

Check out the documentaries on the "Serenity" DVD, wherein Joss & the cast show up at last years Comicon in San Diego; I think the one I'm thinking of is called something like, "How Do You Paint a Firefly?"
In case you haven't heard the story, the convention booked the "Serenity" folks into the biggest space they had available. Five THOUSAND people showed up just for them (man, I was proud of the Browncoats that day) - stayed for the next presentation ('cause it was the Wachowski Brother' "V for Vendetta" and Natalie Portman & Joel Silver were both part of it, so... I mean.. c'MON... who wouldn't've stayed, eh?) and then, when the " for Vendetta" crowd left... the crowd all took off for all the subsequent presentations.

Anyway, one of the documentaries records that day and it's mighty impressive: Joss getting on stage to a THUNderous standing ovation, getting flustered & spinning around like he can't believe what's happening to him

Anyway... as you said,

A question for those who have found and viewed the easter egg:

Select to view spoiler:


The full ad features a Chinese man who is described by Joss as "the extraordinarily shamed gentleman who has not gotten the Fruity Oaty Bars and shamed his family".

Can anyone who speaks Chinese (presumably Mandarin chinese)translate what he says? I'm guessing it's something abot shaming his family by not buying Fruity Oaty Bars, but you never know.

OK, how much money could be made if Fruity Oaty Bars were actually manufactured and available in stores and advertised with this commercial? It would be a lot of cash dont you think?

Hey - I've been a lurker for some time now...but the Fruity Oaty Bar thread was too good to pass up. I have just watched the easter egg about 10 times and made my husband listen to the song on my computer (thanks for the link) another 20 times. Can't wait to torture (er...entertain) everyone at work tomorrow!!

One question....what does the Chinese guy say before he says "fruity oaty bars"? Is it English? Can't make it out.....must know!!!

Love the site....love the show.... love the movie (although it did take me a while to get over it and watch it again...and again...and again). Wish I had been involved from the start...you all put up a hell of a fight!

Thanks everyone.

Obsessing about a single instant in the obsession. Why hasn't this bloody commercial been in one of those conspiracy theory threads, I ask you....maybe we've all been programmed with an obsessive fan subliminal Joss had Zoic sneak in there.
No, this must be what going insane feels like.

Gaak, it's stuck in my head again. I watched it on slow mo' a few times before answering, and Sam I don't see a blue sun. There's a sort of wine colored expanding circle near the beginning, when the background photo shifts from the cartoon fruit trees to something that looks (to me) like palm trees in a hurricane, then the background switches to power station stacks, then to something that looks like a version of the optometrist's photo of your retina
http://www.stlukeseye.com/anatomy/Retina.asp
then River goes off into nightmare space where the reavers are...but I never saw a BlueSun.
BlueSun is like Beatrice Foods, isn't it. I remember reading about them. They had a 'go to sleep and trust us' vibe to their commercials then. Mwah haa ha. It was spooky how much they owned, and that concept of the mega-nested-corp hasn't exactly gone away. Ok, Ok, no more conspiracy theories, I promise.

The Chinese guy in the ad says the following:

Which means "I am/feel so ???, I haven't eaten Fruity Oaty Bars"

I don't know what the third word is or is supposed to be (I thought at first it might be "diu lian" = "lose face/feel shamed"), and neither does my Chinese wife. If anyone else can figure it out I'd be interested in knowing.

My Chinese informant also says "jiao nian" doesn't make any sense. I believe it is should be "diu lian" (to lose face), as well.

BUT what gets me is the Japanese katakana on the Fruity Oaty Bar itself. It says "MA RA SE TA" which my Japanese informant says is also jibberish. At the top it says, "KO HA WA MA RA SE TA SU KA TE SA". More jibberish. I think they dropped to ball on this. They could've just as easily written "FU RU CHI O CHI"

Hi folks, I am not a Serenity fan, I am just warning about a serious infraction, a break in the traditional (and critical) separation between scifi fan geekdom and the rest of civilization.

Google landed me on this site because a radio station (89.7 FM) in San Jose today, I think its a college station, was playing some stupid jingle over and over and over for at least the last hour... and for some reason on my ride into work I could not turn it off.

All I could make out was "Makes a Man out of a Mouse" and "Makes your bust out of your blouse" and then something in Japanese.

I'm putting you all on warning! Stop this silliness!
