Blastr dug up this absolutely wonderful footage of the Firefly panel from the recent DragonCon. Why is it wonderful? Well, not because Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite, Summer Glau and Sean Maher are there, although that’s certainly nice. It’s because at about 5:00 in the video above, Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk start calling the panelist with a bizarre and yet hilariously elaborate routine involving Tudyk’s car, Nathan’s drinking problem, and basically disrupting the panel entirely. and the best part is that is goes on long enough that there’s a second video after the jump. Enjoy.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
