Ok, I've been meaning to ask this for a long time but I guess I am just now getting to it.
I know there are a lot of Joss Whedon fans out there and several here on this board.
I don't mean that in a disparaging way, I mean that as a sincere question.
What is it about his tv shows or movies or books that you really like?
For whatever reason I just can't get into his work. What's funny is he deals with issues that I would normally find appealing (Vampires, Scifi, comics, etc.) but I can't think of one single thing he has ever done that I went "wow".
I mean I tried to like firefly and frankly out of all the work I have seen from him this is probably the only one I even remotely like, but even that is pushing it.
In fact I kind of put him with Kevin Smith in what I think are one trick pony's, people who have one thing to say and can't really get beyond that. Bear in mind I was a huge Kevin Smith fan back in the day but now I can't even watch anything he does anymore because he is just stuck in one type of storytelling (IMO anyway).
What is it I'm not getting?
Please be gentle.
