Where am I

You're reading a weblog about Joss Whedon created by Caroline van Oosten de Boer (concept/design/html) and Milo Vermeulen (PHP/MySQL coding).

WHEDONwhatnow?

WHEDONesque is a community weblog discussing the work of TV maker Joss Whedon. Anyone can post a story or comment to this site, as long as it pertains to Joss Whedon's work.

Share your views on Buffy, Angel, Firefly and any other projects in which Joss is involved. Blood and Burba weed will be served. Bring your own demon.

WHEDONesque.com is not in any way affiliated with Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, Fox, or UPN. This is an independent website, providing a non-profit platform for fans.

Huh... what is a weblog?

That's the million Euro question! A weblog (or 'blog') is a regularly updated site, with links to and commentary on information found on the web, posted in reverse chronological order (so that the latest post is always at the top of the page).

Forget that. WHEDONesque is where you catch up on all things Joss and discuss your favourite shows until the hellmouth freezes over.

But... who is Joss Whedon?

Screenwriter Joss Whedon is the writer, director, and producer of the TV series 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', based on his 1992 film of the same name. Both Whedon's father and grandfather wrote for television. His grandfather wrote for various sitcoms in the 50's and 60's ('Leave it to Beaver', 'The Dick Van Dyke Show', 'The Donna Reed Show'). His father for shows such as 'Benson' and 'The Golden Girls'. He grew up in New York, and spent his high school years at an all-boy's school (Winchester) in England. After studying at Wesleyan University (Connecticut), he was hired as a writer for the sitcom 'Roseanne' and later worked on 'Parenthood'. He is the writer and creator of the comic series 'Fray'.

Joss sold his first script for the film Buffy the Vampire Slayer which was then made into a film in 1992 starring Kristy Swanson as 'Buffy' and Donald Sutherland as Buffy's first watcher 'Merrick'. Since then he has worked on scripts for 'Toy Story' (1995), 'Alien: Resurrection', 'X-Men' and (uncredited) 'Speed'. In 1997, he started the TV version of Buffy, which eventually launched a spin off series, 'Angel', in 1999. In 2003, Whedon produced a new Science Fiction series called 'Firefly', a western in space, which sadly was cancelled before it had a chance to find a larger audience, but a movie picture based on the series, 'Serenity' was made. Whedon also writes comics; Astonishing X-men, Runaways and 'season 8' of Buffy, published by Dark Horse in 2007.
