One of us may have asked Joss Whedon at the Firefly Reunion panel why the show can haz no Asians.
I am tired and the really dramatic Chinese phrases that I know will likely make people question my ethnicity (I’m too embarrassed to show them to anyone for proofreading).
(This is because I want to write Chinese people in Firefly. Why couldn’t you have made it easier by doing it first, Mutant Enemy?)
oh god if Firefly had cast an Asian American actor as Simon they would’ve had the whole “socially-awkward Asian prodigy” stereotype on their hands. Both hands, if River was also included.
In addition to beating everyone up, her superpower would be playing the violin. Or piano.
More fully-realized Asians in the movies and on TV, please. :(
