    Did Whedon write the 92 movie?

    I'm pretty sure he did. But why would anyone watch that movie and go "Man, that writer was good, let me jump into the business of writing!"

    To be fair, he also wrote for Roseanne and wrote Toy Story before Buffy.

    Someone who says Joss Whedon is the reason he writes, I guess.

    I'd guess Toy Story would've been the thing to get BKV enthusiastic about writing, if it was anything from Whedon's early career and BKV wasn't, you know, lying to stroke Whedon's ego.

    The later almost makes up for the former.

    Whedon transcends time and space. Waste not your silly logic attempting to decipher his ways, which there are a lot of.

    Actually, it was Darthphere's fault.

    Alien resurrection wasn't whedon's fault. Studio re-writes. According to Joss the white melty alien wasn't in his script

    Y'know, I don't care what Joss says (OGODWHATTHEHELL???); I liked the white melty alien. It was probably my favorite part of that movie. It was just so twisted and bizarre and creepy. And the way it died was the best finishing move ever.

    Alien Resurrection was also strangely devoid of Whedon's trademark dialogue. That movie seemed to lack a character who spoke like Xander Harris, Hoban Washburn, or Darlene Conner.

    The last two pages of discussion says a lot about Countdown and less about is.

    A friend says that she sees the beginnings of Firefly in Alien: Resurrection. I think she had a point. I killed her for saying it, sure, but she had a point.

    So what are everyone's theories on how Brother Eye's misadventures on Apokolips, his tangling with Jardine and space missions and SuperOMACs, and everything else fit together? I'm thinking the new life forms he was making with Jardine ended up on the prison planet, which is why Batman sent J'onn away from the team and onto the planet. So Eye is working with Waller. But then why does he go to Apokolips? Just to become a world unto himself?

    Dammit, I want explanations!
