Serenity Catch a Firefly T Shirt

by on April 21, 2011

I thought this was the SS Enterprise at first, but upon closer inspection, I noticed it was the spacecraft Serenity from the space Western TV show Firefly. This is where Tshirt Bordello got the idea to put the flying machine in a jar with air holes punched out, just as a young kid would collect and store fireflies. Pretty cool looking image.

Totally makes the Catch a Firefly T Shirt worth the purchase if you’ve seen the show, which I have not. Have you seen it? Has anyone you know seen it? Perhaps it was a cult hit in 2002, but it didn’t even get to air the full 14 episodes it had planned because the ratings didn’t meet expectations. So, I’m guessing I’m not the only one that didn’t know the ship or the TV reference.

Everybody expected more of Joss Whedan, according to this Wikipedia page. And, why not…he hit it big writing episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the screenplay to Toy Story.

That said you should probably get the tee, because doesn’t want to remember a failed TV show by wearing a shirt that references it.
