Joss Whedon–creator of the wildly popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer; its spin-off, Angel; the short-lived series Firefly; and the feature film it inspired, Serenity–takes a seat on the couch in this in-depth examination of the psychological gravity that has captivated his deeply devoted fan base. Whedon fans will enjoy a discussion of issues that are both funny and profound, from the significance of Angel’s mommy issues and the best way to conduct government experiments on vampires to what could drive a man to become a cannibalistic Reaver and the psychological impact of being one girl in all the world chosen to fight the forces of darkness.
