Hi flist!  I know that many of you are very burned out on Joss Whedon these days.  That said, some of you are fans of much of his work.  A comment by [Poll #1764263]

Predictably, I've been ducking out of engaging in any meaningful way in the actual debate du jour at Whedonesque (the neverending, kind of awesome Georges Jeanty interview thread--I mean the thread is kind of awesome, not the interview, which I haven't read), where [livejournal.com profile] 2maggie2 , [livejournal.com profile] angearia , [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42  and [livejournal.com profile] aycheb  among others are making great comments and duking it out.  An interesting poster--goingtowork--made some arguments about Buffy/Angel which are I think wrongheaded but others have skewered that; I responded though to his comments about season six (which is so clearly not what the thread is about, but ok) because I just can't help defend my poor baby of a season. Consider this post in lieu of interesting discussion.
 

Cut for awesomeness and/or boringness )


In other Whedon comic news: apparently J-Mo (Jed Whedon & Marisa Tancharoen) have written an Epitaph-related Dollhouse comic.  "No," says Joss Whedon, "Dollhouse isn't a comic, it'll never be a comic," etc.  I am kind of lookin forward to it I guess--partly that, unlike season eight which I still have some hopes for that will no doubt soon be dashed, I've already disengaged myself from the idea of Dollhouse making total sense ever since "The Hollow Men" and so will be less disappointed if it sucks (and still happy if it is good).   Someone joked that now Felicia Day's image will have appeared in about four different Dark Horse tie-in comics.

OK, so I finally checked out the Emmy noms.  So I can't comment all that much because I've seen about 3 or 4 shows that are eligible this year; off the top of my head in the drama and comedy categories, the drama series I've watched this year are Mad Men, Dexter, Dollhouse, some of Chuck before I gave up on it in mid-season, and Lost; for comedy series I've seen all of The Office and most of Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock.  The reason it's "most" in the latter two cases is because when I lost my laptop I also lost my only way to watch TV regularly; I have computer access regularly from campus but it's not convenient to stream.  I managed to catch up on The Office at home but that's about it.

So as far as the nominations, I'm in the position where I've seen almost no shows.  And yet, I'm still annoyed, not because my darlings were left off (it's not like I was holding my breath for Olivia Williams or Fran Kranz or Enver Gjokaj to get a supporting acting nods), but, weirdly, because of what was on.
Cut for length and probably unpopular, negative opinions re: most things that aren't Mad Men )

Oh well.  Yay Mad Men!
