Tweets Of The Week

Wouldn’t you know it, you wait years for one anniversary to come along, and two roll up in the same week – isn’t it always the way? What’s more unusual is that the two anniversaries sci-fi fandom celebrated last week were two of the past decades most celebrated shows. On Thursday it was the 10th anniversary of Firefly ’s premiere episode in the States, while Saturday marked the 8th anniversary of Lost ’s premiere on US network TV. For a show with such a Twitter-friendly cast, the crew of the Serenity stayed mostly quiet (they’re clearly all too busy on their massively successful shows, such as Castle and Homeland , nowadays); but Lost co-creator (and Tweets of the Week regular) Damon Lindelof lightly prodded a hornet’s nest with by reminding us that we’ve still got plenty of questions about that mysterious island…

@ DamonLindelof Happy 8th Birthday, LOST! Blow out your candles and make a wish... But DON'T TELL ANYONE WHAT IT IS!!! #SelfAware #09222004

@ ZacharyLevi . @stokely_i Not yes, but HELL YES. I dream about it. And totally agree that it should be a series and not film(s). Too much to cover.
