Firefly failed because it was a boring pile of junk. And considering I watched it at a time before I wisened up on Joss Whedon, and that the real quality of BtVS and Angel didn't come from him, but one David Greenwalt who kept him ground and focused on the good stuff, you can understand what this means. At the time I was one of the guy's greatest fans, during the first show I kept watching my watch whether it was getting close to be over already. Ten minutes into the second I had done the same twice over, by the third watch I realized; these is boring crap, I'm not wasting my time watching boring crap, and turned it off. His comics work is no better, and Buffy S8 is so horrible it isn't even funny. The main characters that are supposed to be heroes are really villains the way they're written. Villains that need to be annihilated from where I'm sitting. The result being; I can't care less about any Joss Whedon project, and won't be watching. No matter how much I love Eliza Dushku, I won't be surprised this won't reached mid-season, nor will I shed a tear.
