Howdy Fellow Brown-Coatzzzz-
So my office is pretty cleaned out. Bare walls. Old memos in the trash. It’s sad. But you know the great thing about the FIREFLY spirit…Sorta not in my office, or even on our stages, it’s in evidence in every episode we accomplished. And they were accomplishments. I’m so proud of all the work our cast & crew did on this show, more importantly I have never worked with a better bunch of folks. These people are my family, and the nice thing about this biz is that it is so small that chances are we will be together again…
I want to thank everyone who contributed to my weblog, with ideas, antidotes and encouragement…people like Jim Stirtz “ Grip extraordinare”… to Elyse “Ms. Allen” Ramsdell for her humor and co-anchoring of Crafts Corner…Also to Caroline for underappreciated hard work and dedication (and for loving Coffee Bean so much)- I want to thank Skip for sharing his monkey ordeal, I want to thank the guys at FOX.com (Kyle, Paul & Adam) for doing an awesome job with the site— I need to give a big “thank you!!!” to Nate, Gina, Adam, Sean, Summer, Morena, Jewel, Ron and Alan…the best cast I will ever have the pleasure of knowing…big shout-out and thanks to Mr. Minear & Mr. Whedon for dreaming up an incredible show. And to Carey, Dave K., Shawna, Colin, Stella, Keith, Jain S., Loni, Bubba, Reggie, Allen, Athena, Jana, Camille, Mary Kay, Diana “Weezie” Acrey, David Y., Bruce M., David B. and Steve F.-thank you for getting the job done (and done with creativity and flair) week after week…and also to the hardest working PA’s N-E-Where, Tyson, Corey and Amanda- you rock!!
Folks are off to take some time to enjoy the holidays, see their families…more importantly they will be gathering around the cozy warm TV sets and tuning into the event that started it all. “Serenity,” the long awaited pilot- fresh with new scenes and raging CGI…it’s more fun than the crowded malls, and who really wants to wait in line for 2 hours to see Lord of the Rings on a Friday night, not this dork (plus there was the whole midnight showing on the 17th )- but “Serenity” is well worth the wait.
We had a holiday/wrap dinner the other night. At which, I prodded Joss into making a toast. He told the whole room that there is no other piece of work that he, “ is more proud of.”
Neither are we.
Here’s to a SHINY holiday season and new year,
Kyle’s Thanks: To my partners-in-crime Paul and Adam for helping me keep this site going full-speed ahead. To Kelly, for a consistently awesome blog, and for her tireless efforts to make sure we were able to get the access we needed. To Chris Buchanan, for his unending support of our “let’s make this site a fansite” concept. To Joss Whedon and Tim Minear for being so damn cool about everything. To Jane Espenson and Jose Molina for their fantastic essays. To Stella for being our art dept. “spy on the inside.” To the entire cast and crew for their insane cooperation and participation (video interviews, guest blogs, web ads, message board posts, the list goes on and on). To TheSkinwalkeR for his tireless efforts. To the web fans (most of all!) for supporting us, and allowing an official site to let its hair down.
