Find below pictures of the Firefly/Serenity sets, courtesy of Lee Stringer, who worked as a CGI supervisor on Joss Whedon's cult serie Firefly and as a digital artist on its movie sequel Serenity.
While the pictures show empty sets, you have the feeling that River, Kaylee, Captain Mal might show up anytime.
In the course of sharing with you this threasure trove, I thought it would be funny to place alongside photos from the empty sets and screencaptures featuring the Serenity crew in action.

Could be Alan Tudyk on set in the next picture.

Summer Glau is in the TV Guide's List of the "10 Characters We Want to See on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
TV Guide has come up with a list of 10 Marvel characters we'd like to show up on S.H.I.E.L.D. and which actors should play them. According to the article, Summer would be an ideal candidate as Quake.
Quake (Daisy Johnson) — Summer Glau
What's a Joss Whedon series without Summer Glau? The Firefly and Dollhouse alum could play the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with the ability to create seismic waves, aka earthquakes. And since the pilot introduces — SPOILER ALERT — the "caterpillar" project, it seems possible that could eventually evolve into Fury's other secret caterpillar teams, which include Daisy.
Check out the complete list at TV Guide.
Side note: Summer Glau used to illustrate the articles was taken at the 2nd Annual Dizzy Feet Foundation's Dance Gala, LA on July 28, 2012.
Find below a video pulled directly from a CD-ROM, part of an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) for the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles series premiere.
Here are some notes from the original poster Jezzikuh, who works for a FOX affiliate:
These EPKs were sent out to FOX affiliate stations, and were meant to be cut up by local editors and scheduled to run alongside local content. The audio and video might be a bit odd at some times because, again, it's all pretty much unedited at this point. It's also a tad repetitive…
"Sweetened" generally means that sound effects have been added. "B-Roll" just means footage you would use to cut between other shots, like in an interview.
There are a couple of un-cut interviews included that are worth a look, if nothing else. It's really interesting to see the actors talk about each other. Summer is adorable and needs a cough drop. The B-Roll's REALLY cool. It's like you're quietly standing on set as they film the show.

I extracted from the 29 minutes long video the parts with Summer Glau, as well as the excerpt where Thomas Dekker talks about Summer and added it to the video gallery.
Included in the EPK were UHQ version of well-known promotional posters for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. However, given the abnormal size and weight of the pictures, I will simply link to an album uploaded by KortoloB on an image hosting site: Terminator: SCC Promo Photos UHQ.

Only one month until Summer Glau is back on our TV screens as new character Isabel Rochev.
To get you excited for the second season of The CW's Arrow, here are the titles for the first seven episodes and snippet of information on them (click on the previously discussed episodes):
Episode 2x06 of Arrow will be called "Keep Your Enemies Closer". This episode will see the introduction of recurring character Amanda Waller (played by Spartacus alum Cynthia Addai-Robinson) who is an agent of A.R.G.U.S. who sends out a team to kidnap Diggle.
Episode 2x07 of Arrow will be titled "State v. Queen". This could be a reference to Moira Queen's trial.
Arrow season two is shaping up nicely, I hope everyone is as excited as we are to watch Summer Glau show her talent on Arrow, premiering on Wednesday, October 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
Take a look at the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles press kit made by Virgin to accompagny the series premiere on the UK channel on February 21, 2008.
This promo collectible was limited to six copies and was never available for purchase in stores. It was a competition giveaway for Virgin 1 over there in the UK.
This Virgin 1 Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles boxset features a 18" Terminator with glowing eyes, a plasma rifle, a hand and a DVD with the first episode on it.
The outer case is a heavy acrylic slide cover with a foam insert that slides in. The endoskeleton is not a T-888 as depicted in the TV show, it's a repackage of a Terminator 2 T-800 action figure (see picture with Summer Glau below).
And now to the pictures:
Here a picture feauring Summer Glau holding one of those Terminator 2 T-800 action figure at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention on January 13, 2008.

Summer Glau is on for this november Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane and Adelaide, joining her onscreen fellow Larper from Knights of Badassdom, Peter Dinklage.
Unfortunately, there's no plan for a dual photo op with Summer and Peter but I'm sure many fans would love to get a picture with the two of them.
Since 2011, Peter Dinklage has starred as Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones, which earned him the Emmy and the Golden Globe Award for Supporting Actor. Furthermore, Games of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin is also coming to Supanova in Brisbane and Adelaide this November.
We have learned a in July 2013 that the long-shelved Knights of Badassdom will finally be distributed in the USA. There's no specific release date yet, but Joe Lynch's horror comedy will hit theaters and VOD at the same time.
For your viewing pleasure, here's the cast and crew of Knights of Badassdom at Comic-Con San Diego 2011:
