Plus Arrested Development; yes, it's a shame. Occasionally the odd rumour about a Serenitiy prequel/sequel surfaces, but I'm sure I've read that Whedon isn't interested in doing another one. He said he was too "close" to Firefly when it was cancelled, that he had to make Serenity to do it justice, but I think he's left it behind now.
There was an MMO in the works though, will take a while in development, if you are interested in that sort of thing.
can't see "Ripper" going ahead, Buffy tanked (imo) after season 4.
once Dawn came along, the whole series died, not even the injection of Spike made up for it.
saw Serenity, it's what got me to take a look at Firefly in the first place. since sci-fi isn't my genre of preference (don't like ST or its myriad spin-offs nor Star Wars, loved Aliens and Starship Troopers...).
Arrested Development was very funny, really good premise. it's sad but a fact of life that interesting ("quirky") shows usually get cancelled, whilst formulaic stuff tends to win audience quickly - as sound an argument against democracy as any, I guess .
just hope Pushing Daisies improves a little and The Big Bang Theory continues its fine form (my fave comedy at present).
I liked it too but the writing left a little more to be desired. I think the actors were way better than the lines they were given and it could have been a better series overall which may have given it staying power. The scifi channel often times puts out these series with poor writing. I actually never watched it on tv. I netflixed it for something different. I don't think I ever saw any advertising for it which may be a good reason it just didn't really take off. I liked all the cast and can't wait to see where they go from here.
Oh cmon - what about My Name is Earl, The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Doctor Who... each one is super-quirky and they're by no means the only ones around. AD should have gone on forever as far as I'm concerned, but I don't think it's as simple as quirky vs. formulaic. Fox failed to advertise or support AD, and the show's jokes were often "thinkers" or aimed at regular viewers. I think it was hysterical and well worth repeated viewings, but I can see why it struggled.
Whedon has a new FOX series Dollhouse staring the chick who played Faith on Buffy and Helo from BSG. He also has a supervillian comedy-musical staring Nathan Fillon and Neal Patrick Harris that he plans to release on the internet when he works everything out.
