Whedon Talks SHIELD

So Joss Whedon sat down to chat for a few minutes about SHIELD. I thought I’d share it with you, I’m that kind of guy.

But since there have been enough clips of ye ol’ Joss prattling on at this point, and enough random “Agents of SHIELD” promos to last through its fourth season (have they had one dedicated to the team’s cat yet? Lil’ Fury will be the first to tell you he’s the meowst important component of the team), that I think I’ll just go ahead an save the trouble of watching and commenting on the clip for everyone, and just preempt all the conversations:

“Still no mention of another season of Firefly”

“It’s been off the air a decade, it wasn’t that good in the first place, it got a movie, just shut up about it already.”

“Yeah, and Dollhouse was better than everyone gives it credit for. There was this one episode that had none of the regular actors in it, fantastic.”

“Yeah, at least SHIELD doesn’t have Dushku in it.”

“I don’t know, just looks like Torchwood to me, except with superheroes instead of aliens, and no gorgeous immortal omnisexual in charge.”

“I dunno, that seems to describe Agent Coulson to me.”

“There’s probably already slashfic of Agent Coulson and Captain Jack, but if there’s not I’ll have it uploaded in 20 minutes. This is way more important than Janeway’s seduction of Scully.”

“I just wanted to drop in to a thread about Joss Whedon to point out that Buffy was vastly overrated and I could never get into it, and have never liked anything else he’s done, but I’m just giving my honest opinion, not being a douchebag troll in the least.”

“Fucking douchebag trolls.”

Oh, and “Agents of SHIELD” premiers this week, with all its title periods intact.
