The Avengers’ 200 million dollar opening this weekend is… well, it’s a thing. So much of a thing that it caused Jonah Goldberg to tweet “So, now that Joss Whedon is Hollywoods’s master now, can he please bring back Firefly?” Which is a darn good question.
Now, here’s the thing: I know things. For example, I know what the actual percentage of secret geeks is in politics, and it’s higher than you might think. I know it because people sidle up to me at political events and admit, yeah, they read comic books/game/play online RPGs/watch shows like Firefly. And I also know that Firefly resonates with people on my side of the political spectrum – much to Joss Whedon’s own bemusement, reportedly.
