As of today, the Official Firefly Website hosted by FOX is no more. The URL of the defunct website now redirects visitors to the FOX TV DVD site, where the Firefly DVDs will eventually be promoted.

*SIGH* I'm just so glad that we are still flying to the big screen or this would have been a huge down, followed by lots of kicks.

So I wasn't a very faithful Firefly fan (Forgive me Father....). When I heard the official site was going away, I managed to download the site but only about half the video clips. Is there a mirror or an archive of that stuff available?

As Mitch (an original OBer) reminded me..
an Official site is only Official if ME, Universal, or Fox says it is.. (everything else is still just a fansite no matter how nice it is).

The OB browncoats (for now) seem to have dispersed into 5 different Cliques..



Just my 2 Cents.

It's my opinion to many browncoats tied themselves to the "official site" anyways..
Maybe with the "Crutch" pulled out, more will learn to walk.. :)

Great! But the link to the Firefly theme doesn't seem to work.
Anyone know where I can find a .wav or something of the Firefly theme?
Had it saved on a computer where I USED to work.

Sorry, I caught the wink. :)
but I read it as; even though you werent serious about FFF.net being the official site, I assumed you were excited/hopefull it would be considered as one.
I myself was hopefull the majority of browncoats would gravitate here (it is the best fansite in my opinion) BUT I now realize too many hard feelings might by created by a mass influx of new blood.

Just my 2 Cents.

The board is still there, its read-only though.
I think that's the most important part.
My bookmark goes to the prospero login screen, where I can log in. Then I hear simpsons music for some reason.

It's his super-hero power. He goes by "Succatash" cos "The Pornolizer" is just too obvious.

OK so how can I permanently download the before mentioned videos? not the two babes but the interview vids & such on the now unofficial replica of the now defunct what once was official site, for the show that is no longer on the cursed to the hotplace network, which that site was still not as freaking cool as the current place I call home.

right, that was a string of caffine influenced feldercarb.

The day before the DVD becomes available they shut down the official website?!

Looks like someone at Fox who really dosn't like Mr Whedon or his action/sci-fi/period-drama epic.

Farewell fox, we won't miss you

but you fox idiots are missing one great show, wonder what happened
- some of your conservative execs didn't like Inara's job so axed the show
- maybe the heads of the Fux TV company disliked Mal's rebel nature and were uneasy about their real life cross share-holdings in Enrun, Lackheed bombers and Halliburton so they cancelled the show
- Possible that Fox didn't understand the show one bit so they cut it down?
-Or maybe they really didn't like the fact that Firefly had some pretty cool themes and real ideas, Fascist Imperialism, a big alliance like NATO, the big superpower actually that starts become Nazi like, or maybe they didn't like the fact that there was a showing of an Alliance between the US and China and similarites to things such as EU expansion, the Spanish Empire and interpol
maybe those fat cats at the Fux TV network didn't like this one bit


I don't know why the fox people cancelled the Show

but I can say one thing


idiots at Fox that's what I say
