Seasons Of Whedon

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 11:16

Jenny is watching Dollhouse in the family room because I told her she can’t watch Chuck and it gave me an idea.  We’ve watched all of the Joss Whedon shows now, most of them more than once, so I feel fully qualified to rank them, arbitrarily and indefensibly, by season.  Here goes:

  1. Firefly, Season 1
  2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 3
  3. Angel, Season 5
  4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 6
  5. Dollhouse, Season 1
  6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 2
  7. Dollhouse, Season 2
  8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 5
  9. Angel, Season 1
  10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 4
  11. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 7
  12. Angel, Season 2
  13. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 1
  14. Angel, Season 3
  15. Angel, Season 4

Do you think that Joss Whedon, in his secret heart, knows that changing his name from Josh to Joss to be more specialer in Hollywood makes him an eternal douchebag, his undeniable talent notwithstanding?  I imagine that he does, and that the truth slipped out at least once.  I also imagine that Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day were around when that happened, because where else would they be?

Joss:  I want you guys to tell me the truth.

Nathan:  Oh crap.

Joss:  Seriously, you won’t hurt my feelings.  When you found out that my name wasn’t really Joss, and that I changed it to be more specialer in Hollywood, what did you think?

Nathan:  I thought it was brilliant.

Joss:  Dammit.  Felicia, you tell me.

Felicia:  Mega-brilliant.

Joss:  You guys, seriously!  There wasn’t any part of you that thought it was kind of douchebaggy?

Nathan:  Um…Felicia, do you want to take this?

Joss:  I can handle it.

Felicia:  Well…maybe a little.

Joss:  Okay.  Okay, that’s not so–

Nathan:  Total douchebag move.  All-time.

Joss:  Wait a minute…

Nathan:  I could start telling people that Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs were named after me and that would be less douchebaggy.

Felicia:  Slow down, Nate…

Nathan:  It’s like you were on a quest to be the biggest douchebag in the history of–


Nathan:  Whoa, dude.


Felicia:  ‘Mega-brilliant’ doesn’t sound like such a stupid answer now, does it?

Nathan:  [crying]

Joss:  We must never speak of this again.
