If Joss Whedon was in charge of...

Here's how this game goes: you pick a show (favorite, least favorite, doesn't matter) and talk about the changes it would have undergone if someone like Joss Whedon was running it.

Didn't JW once say he didn't watch porn, he writes it?

As much as I liked BtVS...JW isn't my favorite.

Oh man, TV would be so much more traumatic if Joss was in charge of more things! Half the characters would be dead!

That'd explain a lot.

And all the other characters probably would have been transformed into Smoke Monsters.

This. Dr. Horrible was the absolute final straw for me. I won't watch any more of his work.

If Whedon gets put in charge of the live action Star Wars show he can make it about a spunky group of smugglers who fought for the wrong side during the Clone Wars and are now forced to do whatever it takes to keep on flying in the outer rim while dodging the odd Imperial cruiser.

Then they take on a mysterious passenger, a woman named Mon Mothma who sets them on a path to forge something new.

If Joss Whedon was in charge of _____, it'd be on Fox and it'd canceled within a season, maybe two. And everyone would be up in arms despite the fact that the show wasn't very good to begin with.

Heck, maybe if that's what the show had really been about, it might have gotten a decent amount of episodes!

But set it in the years between Episodes III and IV, make Simon a native of Coruscant, his father a very influential Imperial Moff, and River a former Jedi Padawan. She went into hiding during the Purge, and Simon thought she was dead, but then he finds out bounty hunters have tracked her down. He uses his family's money to get her back and they flee to the Outer Rim, with Darth Vader and other Imperial agents searching for her.

Oh, and she'd be frozen in carbonite, of course.

Re: If Joss Whedon was in charge of...

I probably shouldn't even post in this thread since it's clearly dangerous territory. I actually like Joss Whedon (or is that not cool to say? Is the general consensus that people should be hating him now? I can never keep up....). He isn't God. He isn't perfect. But I'll be bet that Heroes wouldn't suck the way it does if Joss had been running the show.
