9. Firefly reunion. Despite its abbreviated run on Fox in 2002, the Joss Whedon drama still managed to maintain what EW’s own Doc Jensen described as a “vibrant afterglow, nurtured by stalwart fans and new ones who continue to discover the series on DVD and cable.” To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Science Channel shot a reunion special called Firefly: Browncoats United featuring original stars like Nathan Fillion and Summer Glau — who also returned to see their most ardent fans last July in Comic-Con.
