Looks like a form reply :-

"Thanks for your query. We really appreciate your comments, however due to
demand we will endeavour to respond within 2 weeks. In the meantime keep
watching the channel and using the website.

Many thanks

SCI FI"

I'll post updates as and when they arrive.

Does that mean we've sent them more mail than they can handle?

Thank you StillShiny!

Any folks still needing to send out letters and emails?


It doesn't matter if it takes a week, as long as you do it.


As for wording:

Thank you for showing it, thank you for supporting it, thank you for putting it on before the big premiere's of Stargate ( which by the way.. I like too!) I believe Firefly would make a fantastic lead in to those SciFi Friday shows. Also a miniseries would be very nice. Something like the BSG one?

I love SciFi and I'd be even more inclined to watch it if Firefly or a mini series about Serenity were on! Again, thank you!

That's basically what I said, email and mail.

Here's a question-

If they're so desperate for programming that they're trying to make wrestling into SciFi, why don't they just put in real SciFi, AKA Firefly?

*shrug* Just wondering...

Excellent idea. I have more to elaborate on the subject as well. Please read the whole thing, it will only take a minute or two. To everyone who reads this take my advice under serious cosideration. In my opinion the only way to get Firefly back on the air is to appeal to the right network. As we have seen, this is most definitely the sci-fi channel. I'm gorram serious when I say this, and we all know they are serious because of this marathon.
Next comes the issue of making it worth their while, after all they do broadcast shows based on public approval and ratings. I think the only appropriate thing to do is to let them know how much we love this show. Tp let them know the lengths we will go to to get this show back on the air. To show that we have to write emails, and preferably letters because they show our conviction more than typing up a couple of words and sending them via the internet. Letters take time, especially if they're written well, and the folks at TV stations pay more attention to them. Here's the address for the guy to write to at sci-fi channel: Barry Schulman Sci-fi Channel 1230 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10020.
I urge everyone who reads this not only to follow my advice but to spread word of the show to those who have not experienced it. Lend DVDs, have screenings, anything to spread awareness of the show and our cause. Also, spread word of this post and the actions I suggest to any and all forums possible so we may gather the full support of all browncoats everywhere, and to make our movement all the more important. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I'm thinkin' we'll rise again




Add their advertisers to the mailing list - tell them we'll buy their products if they support the show - just needs a few advertisers to comment on "this Firefly thing" to add commercial pressure.

Here's a response to my e-mail ref SciFi UK hosting a Firefly marathon like SciFi US

"Hi there!
Thank you for your recent message. I come bearing good news!
While we are not planning a Firefly marathon, we will be screening Firefly on a weekly basis starting in mid to late September.

The times and/or dates of the screening may change, so keep an eye out and stay tuned for more information closer to the time.

In the meantime, keep on enjoying the SCI FI.

Kind Regards
Duty Officer

SCI FI UK"



Please feedback our gratitude to Sci Fi UK using the feedback link on their website, oh and a request for a mini series wouldn't go amiss :)

Yes! That's awesome for the UK SciFi! I can just see it now- More and more people randomly flipping through channels when they have nothing too much to do...and landing on this amazing show, and getting hooked and then liking it so much that they join our cause!!! *gets lost in happy Browncoat daydreamds*

Mine is an evil sugar high laugh! Bwahahahaha!

Never mind random flipping - hit the scifi feedback button and show them the fanbase the series has already and plug the need for a mini series :smile

This sounds to me like the guy writing the message may be a browncoat himself.

Is the biggest problem they're facing getting Joss Whedon and the others on the set? Because I know Firefly can't cost any more than Stargate Atlantis.

Probably more like the fact the show was dropped before establishing itself - imagine if Buffy had been dropped part way through the first series, do you think any other channel would have picked it up so quickly? I'm sure that at some point someone somewhere will be willing to invest in some form of new programming but by the time that happens either the cast/crew will have moved on or, heaven forbid, Joss and the Browncoats will have moved on, we can only hope that someone notices that the attendance at cons/shows etc both from fans and the cast/crew is still hugely enthusiastic even after such a long time.

Anyone ever thought of going to the grocery store, and getting the paper instead of plastic bags, and cutting them up into nice brown sheets of paper? You could then crumple them up real good and then smooth them out flat to give them more of an old-time western feel and look! Heck, can you imagine if you made your own envelopes out of the same paper? What would the TV/Movie execs think when they receive something like that, and it would DEFINITELY stand out in a stack of mail, or in the mail bag!

That's just a thought that came to me when the discussion of paper came up. The brown paper grocery bags are a much thicker paper, and would ad a nice touch if done correctly.
