Geek legend Joss Whedon (Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, pretty much everything ever) is currently answering questions in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on Reddit.
Thousands of questions have already been posted, and Joss has bravely waded through a handful of them thus far, addressing both his past and future work (and, of course, the frequently asked question of when Firefly is finally coming back).
Responding to the suggestion that season 2 of Firefly could be crowdfunded via Kickstarter, Joss pointed out that some of the show's stars are a bit busy with other things right now.
"Step 2: Cancel Castle. Step 3: Cancel Homeland. Step 4: Generally destroy everybody's careers. Step 5: Avoid Step 2," he wrote.
Joss also spilled some new details about the highly-anticipated follow up to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
"We're not shooting right now, we're still in the early stages of writing. But we hope to make a great deal of progress this summer. And you can expect the death of someone you love," he wrote, adding, "Yes, the original cast will be back for Dr. H 2, but Penny will be... um... I don't want to say 'decomposing...'"
Zombie Felicia Day? This is even better than we expected!
