30 Days of Buffy, Day 30

Day 30: What You Think Made Buffy So Great

Joss Whedon is an expert at giving every character something important to do. When he gets the writing credit on an episode, you know that it will be one of the most well-rounded, strongest episodes of any show. He did it with Dollhouse, and he does it with SHIELD, and he did it in The Avengers. You can even see his hand in Thor 2. But not only that, he makes you care about everyone. Even Harmony. Even Billy Fordham. Even Vi and Molly and Eve. Even Glory. He’s brilliant, and had anyone else been in charge of this show, it wouldn’t have been what it became.
