New Highlight Reel™: Best show for Joss Whedon


For those of you less nerdy than this blog's author, I should explain that Joss Whedon is a writer/producer who first made a big splash with the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Before this breakout hit, he wrote the screenplay for the original film version of Buffy and the screenplay for Pixar's Toy Story. I am going to put four choices on the list for him, other that the standard He's Always Good, No Highlight Reel™ and He Always Sucks, No Highlight Reel™.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Angel
Firefly/Serenity
Dollhouse


I'm going to leave off the cartoon show Buffy: The Animated Series and the web only single episode of Dr. Horrible's Sing A Long Blog. The voting will be open until next Monday morning. One vote per customer.

Let your voice be heard, else vampires, demons, reavers and programmed assassins may find their way to your door.

Just sayin'.

Reavers? Aren't those the horribly deformed, psychotic and weirdly fast-moving killers in the movie Serenity? NOOOO-OOOOOOO! They really scared me! The demons, vampires and assassins I can deal with, but NOT the Reavers.

Yeah, the Reavers will kill you rather than look at you. Much scarier than vampires.

I didn't care for Dollhouse but everything else he's done on TV is wonderful - Buffy and Angel are two TV series that I've watched more than once. Buffy is probably the best work that Sarah Michelle Geller will ever do and ditto for James Marsters (as Spike). The whole cast on Angel was superb and I have often wished that Aexis Denisoff could get more work. He may have been one of the more versatile actors on both series.

I agree that many actors get their Highlight Reel™ in the Whedon-verse. Some go on to more popular work, if not better work.

I decided to start this one based on watching an episode of Dollhouse with commentary by Joss and the star/producer Eliza Dushku. Whedon makes some of the best commentaries around, because he's just the right level of nerd.
