Last night, The CW aired Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog on TV for the first time, and stars Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day (plus writers Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon) were on hand to live-tweet! From praising Neil Patrick Harris to talking about one troublesome extra, here are the funniest, sweetest insights they shared over Twitter. More
Topic: Felicia Day
For years, Joss Whedon has said that a major obstacle to a Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog sequel is that no one has any free time. Well, it looks like that’s changing! More
When Joss Whedon says lines like “You know I’d gay-march on hepatitis-infected glass to change things,” it’s gonna be nothing short of hilarious. More

As Joss Whedon told fans at his The Cabin in the Woods panel at SXSW, he and the folks behind Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog are gearing up for the sequel. He said, “All of us are looking at this summer as the time when we can go, ‘Hey, you know what? We’ve got a little free time, let’s get unstuck.’” More
Celebrities like Felicia Day swear by Black Milk Clothing‘s leggings, but their newest design — weirdly realistic “muscle” leggings — have mostly inspired disbelief and Lady Gaga jokes. More

Hey, guys. It’s Lucia, your friendly neighborhood nerd. Can we talk about fan conventions for a moment? Awesome. Because guess what? San Diego Comic-Con, commonly known as SDCC, is happening this weekend, and as usual I’m bemoaning the fact that I live on the other side of the country. SDCC is the pinnacle of geekdom, a spectacular four-day extravaganza that celebrates comics, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and all things nerd. This is the magical place where sneak peeks at hotly anticipated new movies happen, where intelligent discussions about the ethical and moral issues faced by superheroes past and present occur, and where fans get to mingle with their favorite actors, writers, artists, and filmmakers. Every year at this time, I bitch about the fact that I’m not there. Here’s the thing: You all know the sorts of things I write about. You know I’m a giant nerd. When I was living in London, I took a day trip out to Cardiff, Wales just to see a temporary exhibit of Doctor Who props and costumes at a random mall. When Return of the King came out, I totally would have done Trilogy Tuesday if I hadn’t been taking a Latin exam while it was happening. I’ve been to many midnight screenings of high-profile geek movies. But you know what?
Cons TERRIFY ME. More
Beloved geek girl Felicia Day is at Comic-Con promoting her Dragon Age: Redemption web series, and she just tweeted this pic from a run-in with a fan. Gone are the days of having a celebrity sign your breasts or arm, it seems: This guy copied Day’s signature into a tattoo and branded his leg with it! He’s lucky that she just signs with her initials — imagine someone getting Matthew McConaughey‘s name tattooed! More
Summer is the perfect time for each new season of The Guild, Felicia Day‘s web series about a dysfunctional group of gamers trying to manage their online and offline relationships. They just released this new teaser for season 5, which starts July 26. It’s pretty vague, but it clearly gives us the setting: The Knights of Good are going to BlizzCon! More
What kismet — today is Jane Espenson‘s birthday, which validates even more my choice to make her this week’s Girl Crush. Even though I say that it’s Joss Whedon who made me think that I could make a living as a writer, Jane Espenson is a more personal idol. Obviously there’s the fact that she’s one of the top-ranked female TV writers, but she is just so damn cool. She’s so well-respected, in fact, that she’s inspired a hashtag just for her special day: #JaneBday More
