  1. The Dork Knight says:

    Let the petty trolling of Whedonfans begin!

  2. Aaron says:

    That does tend to happen. While I always welcome actual conversation on the show.

  3. The Dork Knight says:

    Having listened through years of Whedon fan bashing, I’m curious, what the hell is it with you and whedon fans? Did a group of drunken browncoats pee in your orange juice? What is it about us that “annoys the crap out of you”?

  4. Aaron says:

    It’s a small, but incredibly vocal group that get on my nerves. It mainly comes from years of doing these shows and when I don’t just love something Joss creates, I would receive pages long rants about how I am just another woman hating geek that doesn’t understand his vision. Trust me, that gets old, really fast.

    Plus, having been in retail, I learned that many a fan complain that early Whedon stuff fails because no one supports his work. And yet, whenever a new official product came out, they were always the first people to complain about paying for stuff they’ve supported for so long.

    Now, when I say “Whedon fans” I should probably say “certain Whedon fans”. Which is what I really mean.

  5. The Dork Knight says:

    Certain Whedon Fans would definitely help. I don’t do any of those things. If Pwn doesn’t like Whedon’s stuff, hey, great, its not please everyone. Certain Whedon Fans ARE annoying. So are certain Trek fans, and certain Farscape fans, and certain Twilight fans and certain Batman fans. Yet we don’t spend hours bashing them. So I don’t really get it. Regardless, I’ll keep listening, just tired of the trolling.

  6. Aaron says:

    I like about half of what Whedon does. I truly love the Firefly series and I think Angel is better show than Buffy (which gets me the hate mail). But I get it. We aren’t so much trolling as we are just ranting off the cuff. Also, Batman fans are never wrong. NEVER!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for listening Dork Knight!

    If I’m being honest, as much as I want to like Agents of SHIELD, I landed in the same camp as Kielen. It felt forced and cliched. Also, I am sort of sad to see the Marvel movies and shows going the route that superhero comics have: death means nothing. I think the show has cheapened the part that Agent Coulson played in the Avengers Movie Universe. “Hey guys, remember that team/character building moment you had that really drew everyone together? Yeah, all lies.” It’s lazy storytelling and tastes like a cash grab. *Soapbox Dismount*
