Why Joss Whedon is god
why do you ask, do i adore joss wedon?
because he understands the value of not having a completely happy ending. he understands and hows though his work, that happiness comes at a price and that it doesnt always come to everyone. because of this you can never predict his endings. no matter what, you will always be in some way, completely suprised.
see ending for season 2 of buffy the vampire slayer. buffy fights angelus in hopes that willow can restore his soul. instead of angel having his soul restored, the world not ending and buffy and him being happy together like it would if stephanie meyer was writing it, angelus opens the gateway to hell, has his soul restored in time for buffy to send the man she loved into hell. the audience DID NOT see that one coming.
see ending of season 4 angel. world peace has finally happened. so what happens? angel and his crew destroy world peace and get rewarded by having their arch nemisis wolfram and hart turn aro9und and give them the keys to their mutli million dollar law firm. LIKE WTF MATE?
see ending of serenity. instead of our hero mal or another one of the warriors like zoe or jane dying the three victims are a preacher, shepard book, a pilot, wash *sniff* and a computer nerd, mr. universe. all of which were unepected.
to sum up, joss is god bacause he doesnt follow the mould and he will always suprise his audiences.
I LOVE YOU JOSS
