Nathan Fillion Reveals Alan Tudyk's Dog Fight Firefly Episode Idea



The cast of Firefly reunited at the recent New York Comic-Con for a special panel as well as a behind-the-scenes documentary that airs Sunday night at 10pm on the Science Channel, Browncoats Unite.

EW.com was on hand at the NYCC and spoke to the cast of Firefly where it was revealed one regret that they all shared was that they never got the chance to write an episode.

A fan asked what story the panel would have written for each of their characters with Nathan Fillion describing Alan Tudyk's tale of dog fights.

"Alan Tudyk definitely pitched the most episodes,” Fillion told EW. “He had a great one where there were some criminals who engage in illegal dogfights, and there was a planet where one side of the planet was perpetual night. They had these big, feral dogs there that were so mean and awful, and we had to go out and trap them. We had this dog pheremone of some kind, and Jayne was messing around, and splat!, the thing bursts and we’re all covered in this pheremone. So we have to run back to the ship with these feral dogs chasing us, and we get the dogs back to the hold of the ship, and we’re safe. But in the journey back to get them back to the criminals, River comes in, communes with the dogs, and domesticates them. So now they’re the same dogs, just nice.”

“This is the stuff that Alan thinks about,” Jewel Staite added. “Dog fights, mustaches, and tattoos. He’s a strange man."

Firefly aired ten years ago with only 13 episodes. The show became a cult hit with The Avengers director Joss Whedon reuniting the cast in the spinoff movie, Serentity.
