Watched Doctor Horrible today. It’s not that Joss is a bad writer – in fact I would still say that along with Stephen Moffet and Aaron Sorkin he’s one of my very favorite writers. No, it’s the fact that he’s become predictable. As soon as the letter turned up saying “you must kill someone” I immediately said “oh, the ‘nice girl’ is going to get killed by accident”. I mean, c’mon, this is what Joss does takes nice innocent characters and kills them. For those that say “well, bad things happen in life” well, fine but when it starts to become cliche its a problem.
Joss is much better than this.
