WELL! This is certainly an interesting development. I remember hearing that this might happen years ago when Netflix said it was planning on buying up dead properties but nothing after that until now. VERY cool!
And yes, Frontier
, I agree, Firefly would be another great pick-up, too. However I wouldn't consider it as likely, when Whedon and his sister put the kibosh on wanting Nathan Fillon to buy the rights to bring it back. Although I think anybody could do a better job of supporting it than Fox did...bastards...But I digress. Methinks Whedon wants to keep that one for himself, even if it never sees the light of day again.
