Who is the Joss Whedon Fella, Anyway?

If you understand the title of my blog, you will understand who this fella is.


This is Joss. Say Hello to Joss, everyone. "Hello, Joss." That was very nice and polite.

Joss Whedon is a writer, director, producer and all-round genius.

Did you know he wrote for "Roseanne" the t.v. show?

Did you know he wrote for "Parenthood" the t.v. show?

Did you know he co-wrote a little screenplay we like to call TOY STORY?

He also did "Alien: Resurrection," "Titan AE"  and wrote the screenplay to the new "Avengers" movie.

I fell in love with his brain when I started watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" the first year it aired.  "Buffy the Vampire Slayer?" you scoff.  Have you seen every episode? Have you listened to the intelligent dialog? The creation of new slang?  The use of intelligent references from classical literature, music, right on through pop culture? No?  Then you really can't comment, sorry.

"Buffy" led me to "Angel"


and eventually "Firefly," which to me is the best work he's ever done.


 His writing and ideas cater to an intelligent audience that's not drooling for a reality show, so networks don't understand him and sometimes don't give his works a chance.  (See "Firefly" and "Dollhouse.")

Then there was "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog" which broke the internet, it was so popular.  :)

I can't really explain much more without sounding all psycho-stalkery.  So, this is just a brief synopsis of who this Joss guy is.  Check out my posts re: his works under my Joss Mania Label on my blog.

And then there was...The Avengers.  'nuff said.
