FIREFLY Deleted Scenes Featuring River Wanting To Marry Her Brother

FIREFLY Deleted Scenes Featuring River Wanting To Marry Her Brother

If you had never watched the show and all you saw was the headline above you might think that Joss Whedon's ("The Avengers") much-beloved television series, Firefly, was set in Kentucky and not outerspace, as it is. Hit the jump to check out three deleted scenes.

In November, the Science Channel broadcast a special Firefly reunion show, Firefly: Browncoats Unite. The one-hour special was a huge success for the network as it pulled in 1.2 million viewers, making it the channel's most-watched Sunday night ever. During the show the cast (Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite) and crew discussed the well-deserved cult following that Firefly has established since it first aired a decade ago. Also, deleted scenes were shown, and three of them have been been uploaded for you to view below.

River tells Simon they should get married.

LOL. Never knew about the UK love affair(pun intended) with caravans until I started watching top gear years back.

I have to be honest, it's a good thing I don'thave a sister that looks like Summer Glau because it could have made to a very complicated and confusing family life...
FoxForce5 - 1/4/2013, 2:04 PM
^^^And yes, I'm just a little ashamed of myself for admitting that...^^^

if i had to pick one tv series that could be brought back for new episodes it would be Firefly.
@nailbiter, thanks for keeping the state of Kentucky the go-to-state for hillbilly references in our country. i like what you post, so no hard feelings. i actually think that Kentucky's claim to fame has now become being the "hillbilly state"; got to take what you can get i guess

@theomegasanction I could not agree more, It was a shame that it only lasted one season

In my opinion it's bourbon that not only puts my state on the map... but also makes it tolerable. Cheers y'all. gulp gulp gulp gulp

I live in Louisville KY. I'm proud of my state.

And it's the Basketball that makes this state so awesome.

Go Cats!

Funny how the last thing that it is still okay to insult are poor fat white southern males. Make fun of any other group and...

xcan28@ Just how in the world are we going to come across these statistics, you speak of. If you were a southern American and you'd fvcked your sister, would you admit that in a statistic-generating questionaire?
I think that humans tend to use jokes like this to communicate information, in a way. We joke about Mexivcans only ever eating Tacos (which is, of course, ridiculous and not true) to communicate the information that Tacos are a Mexican food. It's the same with the dp south and incest. It's just a stigma that hasn't gone away. You're right it probably is not true, in the slightest, anymore. But it is more likely in underdeveloped and poorer areas that incest would occur. For one thing there is a whole lot less pussy around, so what else are you gonna do? You live on a farm, in the middle of nowhere, with little access to education, population or media (obviously I don't mean the deep south of today) and you're a horny teenaged virgin boy in a hot climate and your sister is unmistakably hot and scantily clad and she is also a horny teenaged virgin and there are no other boys around... y'know? Compared to the kind of background that you're used to in modern day Canada, you can see how incest would be much more likely and a tad more excusable in that situation. I'm pretty sure that this stigma probably came from a few real-life occurances that circulated via hearsay and were probably even exaggerated by conjecture.
And that's why we joke that they [frick] their sisters in the south.
Also, you said it yourself, you are a bit removed from the south. As am I, I'm a Brit. But while the US has rednecks, the UK has chavs, so I can relate to the fact that a lot of the discrimination stems from fear which in turn stems from the fact that a lot of these rednecks are probably dangerous and as such a tad scary.
Besides, like foxforce5@ said; If Summer Glau was your sister, you might not fvck her ('cause she'd be your sister and that's just not done), but the idea wouldn't be entirely unnattractive.
