Good news for Firefly fans…sort of.  Adam Baldwin is guest staring in a Castle episode as detective Ethan Slaughter.   Baldwin will be reunited with Firefly’s Nathan Fillion who plays the title role on Castle.

Now if they’d just bring back Firefly we could all be happy.

Within seconds of the announcement, my Twitter feed began blowing up with rage-fueled messages. Utter dismay over Pegg’s hiring.

Accusations of “hypocrisy” on the part of LFL. And that was just from a twenty minute sample of tweets. It’s even more vitriolic if you venture over to Dave Filoni’s Facebook page.
