Whedon was the worst part of Avengers (Tony Stark in that film is not the Tony Stark of any Iron Man film I've ever seen). Buffy the TV series was only watchable if you're 12 years old and feel like every character should have sassy backtalk. And I turned off the first episode of Firefly when I heard a character use "gorram" more than once in a five minute period.

If I wanted to hear adults talk like catty prepubescent brats, I would watch reality TV.

Seriously, what the fark is the appeal of this guy?

Doktor_Zhivago: I've never seen anything Whedon has done and liked it.  Sorry everyone... take my nerd card if you want.


I watched all of Dollhouse on netflix and was entertained enough I guess. I've seen a few episodes of Buffy but never had any interest in following the whole thing - can't explain why.  I liked The Avengers.

But I farking loved Firefly and Dr. Horrible.
And I loved the theme song for Firefly too, which I guess he helped write.
Did not see Cabin yet, but I've heard good things about it.

So, I pay attention to what he does, and I'll at least consider watching anything with his name on it . That's about as high as praise gets from me for anyone that makes movies/shows.. cheers

My biggest problem with Whedon is I never got even a line of dialog.

GAT_00: Flint Ironstag: Know how I know you've never visited Whedonesque? The site where Whedon himself posts? people happily criticise things he's done and no one leaps on them or demands they be banned. Of course it's a fan site but to claim no criticism is allowed is just another myth that you've bought into.

Why in the hell would I go to a Whedon fansite when I can't stand the ones on here?


Says the guy posting multiple times in a Whedon thread.

That's ok, better to be a Whedon fan than a holier-than-thou political tool I suppose.

A large number of Whedon's projects have suffered failures or setbacks of some form.  The problem with this clearly rests among everyone else, and in no way has the Whedon failed.  The blame cannot, simply cannot rest in the single component that links all of those projects together.  All glory to the Whedon, for he is forever perfect.

Sounds like he's learned more than a few lessons from dealing with the Hollywood machine.  If only the same could be said of the inverse.

Or maybe his writing skills are only liked by a small but rabid fanbase
