A week or so ago, we were surprised to hear that ABC had picked up to series a sci-fi procedural named 'Weird Desk' for summer 2013, one who's premise seemed awfully familiar to fans of such investigative series as 'Fringe' and 'The X-Files.'

However, it wasn't the other series that felt too similar, but rather ABC's upcoming Joss Whedon-helmed 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series!

'Firefly's status as a cultural phenomenon has officially peaked this year, with fandom at an all-time high, a tenth anniversary special airing on the Science Channel, and the ever-present talk of a revival making the rounds once more.
