Saturday night of Comic-Con, at the Entertainment Weekly / SyFy party, my world came crashing down. I'm a huge fan of Joss Whedon and I'm generally obsessed with Firefly
. I haven't had the time to make a fan vid about it yet, but believe me, I will. So, imagine my utter despair as Joss Whedon told me that Firefly
is over. "No one's ever given me the slightest hope," he said when asked about the franchise. I might be naive, but that's not the answer I was expecting. Comic books, straight to dvd, nothing?
Firefly is available on Amazon Prime.
I couldn't be all sad though. I mean, there I was, standing right in front of one of my idols, chatting with him about some of my favorite TV shows of all time. Was I happy? No, I was ecstatic! Whedon even discussed Glee
briefly with us, which isn't in the video. Evidently, he's a huge fan of the new series. Whedon tells us he promised his wife he wouldn't go to the screening at Comic-Con but just couldn't resist temptation. So, for those of you unaware, Whedon's recommendations for last year: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
(Fail guys. I mean, you couldn't help Joss out and tune in?). Whedon's recommendations for this year: Glee
. Don't let him down.
Other than that, Joss Whedon tells us what's in the works for Dr. Horrible
, including his take on the (second) Feature Length Buffy the Vampire Slayer
movie. Check it out below.
Don't worry, Dollhouse
news in Part 2, coming soon...
