I really dig the idea of this podcast. I was a kid who grew up watching Buffy, then Angel, and all of the following and I feel as though every single piece of the Whedon-verse has a poetic sense of beauty that is unique. Even Dollhouse, who had a pretty rocky start, by the end was one of the most beautifully tragic pieces of television I have ever seen.
I like what these guys are trying to do, but they kind of come off as the fat comic book guy stereotype (worst episode ever!) that give all of us a bad name. The amount of times i’ve heard the phrase “f#*@$ this episode” while listening is staggering. And for a duo who continues to nitpick nonsensically and arbitrarily as often as they do, i’m kind of shocked that they don’t bother to pronounce many of the actors names correctly: Amy Ackers (Amy Acker), Josh Whedon (Joss Whedon). i’ve listened to this from the start, and love the idea of what they’re trying to do. Lighten up, be cool, and stop trying to be a superior nerd jerk. You make all of us look bad.
