Joss Q&A

On all the shows (Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse) there are often plotlines or potential plotlines which were for whatever reason (actors leaving, time/money, cancellation etc) never explored.

Which plotlines, or potential plotlines, do you wish had been explored or given more airtime? And Why?

(Obviously, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse were all cancelled but what I want to know is what storylines in particular you wish could have been given airtime).

Joss’d Episode #057 – Eliza Rocks!

Kim and Tabz geek out about summer TV in the Whedonverse and why you should be watching Eureka in particular. They also try to figure out why Wil Wheaton keeps being cast as a jerk. We hear a great promo from the BTL Network podcast, Knights of the Guild. The news people seem very confused, but they get over it and talk about Eliza’s newest role (get her some cat nip) and Dark Horse’s new Faith and Angel comic. Two other Whedonverse actors are popping up in new roles (yay). Kim and Tabz talk about Eliza’s acting ability in Whedonverse shows and how awesome she is. Nutty tells us about Eliza’s first roles (hint: it’s not Faith). And Tabz and Kim talk about QMx’s new Whedonverse statutes. Tabz explains what sarcasm is and doesn’t get interrupted by Kim. They also discuss Whedon academics and how you can join the Whedon Studies Association. John also puts in about fifty of our outtakes. He’s so awesome.

Whedonverse Q&A

So, I’ve been watching Firefly.

(And before I say anything else, I have to get rid of some Firefly squee – OMG, I cannot believe television can be this good. I am so, so in love.)

And before that, early last year, I watched Dollhouse. Now I know that Dollhouse doesn’t even come near the brilliance that is Firefly (even though, I really did enjoy Dollhouse. Especially the second season, but nonetheless, I started to think. After watching Firefly and Serenity, I began to see where Dollhouse came from. From what idea. The whole River story started to remind me of Echo and the other Dolls. It was like seeing an extreme AU of Firefly, where the experimentation with brains went to doll-creating, creating someone as a weapon or assassin. Just that the Blue Hands in Firefly aren’t quite there yet. (Thank god.)

So I thought I’d just throw that out there. What do you think? To what extent do the dolls in Dollhouse follow on from the Blue Hand’s project in Firefly?

I just think it’s interesting that Joss has had this topic on his mind so much. :p

See the question, answers and answer it yourself!

Whedonverse Questions
Spike has been called the little black dress of the Buffyverse because one can ship him with pretty much any character from Angel to Xander. The impulsive vampire with the punk demeanor and poet’s heart is shipped heavily in fandom. Do you ship Spike with many different characters or just one? If you ship Spike with another character, canon pairing or otherwise, who and why?

Joss’d Episode #HAL4 – Special Discussion on Firefly “Bushwhacked”

Just in time for the Halloween season join Tabz, Kim, Emma and the team from Buffyfest (Dan, Tara, and Michelle) as they discuss the Firefly Episode – “Bushwhacked” (and why it shouldn’t be regulated to the bottom of the Firefly episode pile). Spoilers abound in this episode so make sure you’ve watched all of Firefly before listening.

Synopsis from
Written and Directed by Tim Minear

A dead guy on the windshield interrupts a little game of calvinball. The crew boards a derelict ship from whence the dead guy came, looking for salvage first and survivors second, only to discover that the crew of the derelict was killed by Reavers. Just when they think a ship full of crazed cannibals intent on chewing their innards out is the worst thing that could happen, up pulls an Alliance Cruiser.
No problem, right? There’s just that small matter of a couple of Alliance fugitives on-board, not to mention the cargo they just lifted off the derelict without a salvage license, and the sole survivor of the attack they’ve got sedated in the Med Bay…

WASH: Oh, god! What could it be? We’re doomed! Who’s flyin’ this thing? Oh. Right. That’d be me. Back to work. (Kim)
