Okay. Since Fox programmes suck so bad these days I thought I'd pich an idea. Picture this: 6 browncoats and 2 fox executives all living in one house for 32 days. Perfect reality television! What do u think the outcome would be? Dont suppose anyone has an address for fox to pitch my idea to?

Better yet, put the cast of Firefly and 4 Fox execs locked up in an isolated log cabin for 2 weeks. Contents of cabin: food & water for 13 people for 1.5 weeks, 9 beds, gas generator, fuel, tv, dvd player, Firefly dvd set, 1 bottle of Wild Turkey, a .45 caliber pistol, and 4 bullets. Hmm...

I don't know...some one could survive being shot by a .45 a few times better make it a bigger gun like that new Magnum that puts Dirty Harry’s one to shame.

Adam: Goramit Nathan I had to use two rounds on one of the execs!
Nathan: Well pistol-whip the other!

Hmmmm...Disregard what I 1st said that sounds more entertaining!

If BC1 gets to go and be one of our representatives, I should get to go also- Me and the boys from Fox have a lot to talk about- And I would promise them I wouldnt start any violence until the Fox execs said or did something really, really stupid- Which shouldnt take too long, judging by their track record - Then, as I believe the phrase goes, there'd be some local color happening-

Or, even better, the Fox execs have to watch the DVD to avoid going insane with boredom, and agree to make some more episodes.

Though it's funny when they all die.

I hate to say this, but I think I'll take a page from book when I say that maybe they just need education, love your enemies. Teach, dont kill.

Well, teach in a bootcamp, but same difference

Fox execs might take issue with that philosophy...if they HAD a philosophy...if they weren't too busy tearing the hearts out and gnawing at the insides of the thousands of loyal fans of the best gorram show in the 'verse!

Nah. You just need the FOX execs, the loaded gun, and tapes of the horrid trivel FOX has been showing recently. They'll shoot themselves. The fun would be to see who misses and has to shoot themselves twice, leaving some poor smuck with no bullet and lots of FOX shows to drive him fully into insanity.

Really, give this up already,

We won against fox, they lost a great show and its going to be a movie, a movie they wont even get a share of the profit of since universal owns the rights.

Theres really nothing to complain about, its not my fault some of you decided to watch "average Millionaire 7: Alaska" and realised it wasnt up to standards, the title should have been enough people!

Reign in there Arcbeatle. We Browncoats are just having a bit of fun at the expense of the Fox folk again. No harm in that.

We have not won against Fox until the movie is out and a success. Remember that Fox is the one reaping most of the profit from the DVD set, not Universal.

A real victory would be the movie being a smash and than a revival on a rival network crushing the Fox show in the same time slot. Now that would be real hi-larious.

sorry, I just reallised I wrote my posts sort of nasty-like. Dont much want you people to think I'm some sort of crazed ruffian.

Baisicly my point is that this thread has been done70ish times, slightly varied, but weve made fun of fox, fox executives, foxes, and badgers so much that it isnt really funny any more. Its at the point where I don't really doubt you would the kind of things you joke about.

I also think it makes FireFlyFans.net kinda a bad place for any one who works at fox or knows someone who works there and seperates them from the rest of the browncoat community.

No offense to any one, and I know you're just foolin around, but then again thats just my 0.03$

I agree that we haven't won *yet*.

And while it may no longer be funny to make fun of FOX execs, I still think it is very cathartic.

I like the reality show idea. As for which Browncoats would go...I think we do a nationwide talent search. We call it American Vengence. We show our talent for expressing outrage, we sing the Ballad of Serenity, and our ability to be ironical. Three judges, Joss, Nathan, and Paula Abdul.

Winners spend the 32 days in the house with the Fox executives. The twist. No cameras. Just us, a house, all the usual Big Brother stupid challenges and such...but no cameras. Everyone who lasts the 32 days gets $1 million, a camio in the FF movie, and a very fine hat. The executives, if they last, can keep their jobs.

I don't think anyone here is seriously considering stalking a Fox exec and doing them bodily harm ArcBeatle. I know I'm not. Don't much care for Fox or what they did to Firefly, but we will have the last laugh.

I think it is constructive for people to work out their frustration as SouthernSlayer has done in this thread. It beats writing hate mail to Fox, and we all get a laugh out of it. No harm, no foul.

Try not to take these things so seriously, I know I don't.
