Joss Whedon Sells Soul to Devil for Another Good Show
Admitted atheist Joss Whedon sold his soul to the Devil earlier this week in exchange for another hit.
Whedon, the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is tired of being referred to as a one-hit wonder.
“The Browncoats are supportive, but there aren’t enough of them. I need to draw mainstream viewers.”
Whedon was complimented by J. J. Abrams, who said, “Joss’s storytelling is always that perfect storm of wit, deep emotion and passion for genre. His brilliant characters make familiar territory brand spanking new--and damn if he can’t write a catchy theme song, too.”
However, blogger Rutager Faust would disagree with that. His post, “Joss Whedon’s ‘Dollhouse’ sucks--The Official Review” points out holes in the plot, dismissing Whedon as a hack and a plagiarist.
“It’s no surprise that the “creative” force behind the idiotic “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” TV series would go on to produce another TV show that also sucks.”
“He probably gave herpes to Rihanna,” he adds, concluding his article.
Whedon responded to Faust’s post, but his response was written in Chinese. A translation wasn’t available at press time, but a Room for Schemes staffer thought the post probably said, “fuck you, motherfucker. Stupid blogger, what the fuck do you know about television?"
