Summer's Boyfriend Has Good Taste. On last week's episode of The O.C., Joss got mentioned by name. (Scroll down to the "Cultural References" section)

I shouted out loud and made good use of Tivo's replay button when it happened. Pretty cool, eh?

I can't believe I missed that!
First Alias and now The OC, wonder what'll be next. Maybe they could reference the 21st century writer Joss in an episode of Enterprise.

Maybe there's a lawyer from Wolfram & Hart on Lostisland, (Lostland, Lostfordshire, does it have a name?)

I always thought it would be great if the guy who plays Gavin from Angel (he's on Lost now) was later to be revealed as having had worked for an evil law firm and that's why his wife didn't want to be with him anymore.
Wouldn't that be something?
Glad to know I wasn't the only one hoping that!
BlindHawkeyes, I thought Jin was killing people for Sun's father...?
Sun's father could've been a Senior Partner...
There is a Jin-centric episode coming up on Lost in about two weeks. So hopefully we can get some more insight into Jin's past. Assassin or just plain ole murderer?
Here's the dialouge from that part of the scene:

Zach: Did you read the new Whedon X-men?
Seth: I did, and I'll tell you my problems with it; they're threefold...
Summer: (interupts) Okay, it is too early for comic book talk.

So we never get to learn Seth's 3 problems with Whedon's X-men. Ooh, cliffhanger.
Congrats, Joss, on becoming a reference on The O.C.
Shotgun Wes, do you really wanna know? heh heh heh.
Ha, yeah, I was trying to find the entire dialogue to link to. Then the headline would've read, "Summer's boyfriend has good taste. Seth does not." As much as I hate to knock Seth...
As soon as i heard it Thursday night i posted what was said on one of the Comic posts, i'm very happy that it got its own post!! Go Joss.
**First Alias and now The OC, wonder what'll be next.**

There was a Whedon reference on 'Alias'? When and what episode. I must rewatch.

Who wrote this episode? Isn't Drew Z. Greenberg on the writing staff for the show this season?

I heard that Sydney (in disguise, natch) was trying to talk her way into a club by telling the bouncer that her boyfriend "Joss" was inside...I'm on ALIAS boycott though so don't take my word for it.

I have no doubt that Seth's "three-fold" problems with Whedon's X-Men would be hilariously self-centered in a back-handed complimentary sort of way. Besides, they gave a nod to Bendis earlier in the season...gotta throw some love to Joss too.
Syd was in some guys house and had left a tape playing to make it seem like she was still in the bedroom, on the tape she was telling a guy called Joss about how she'd flipped her car and someone had pulled her out.
Yeah I saw that too, had to kind of rewind of bit that part, just to confirm what my ears already knew the first time.

Awesome, huh?

We should get this people to talk with our people, on helping with Serenity promotion, that should be fun.

Shotgunwes, the Jin centric episode won't be up until february sweeps. We'll get the Michael / Walt centric episode next week, and then we'll have two weeks without new episodes, then Feb sweeps starts for Lost with this Jin centric episode, I think it's called "... In Translation". So we'll be very close to Goddard's Sawyer centric episode, and Fury's Hurley centric episode.

lalaa, Drew is on the writing staff for the show this season. However, he didn't write this episode. He co-wrote the episode with Josh Shwartz when Jimmy left (the ep 2 weeks ago), which in my opinion was one of the best episodes this season.
This one was written by John Stephens.

MySerenity, I quite enjoyed that episode too...heck, I even kinda sorta liked Marissa in a few of her scenes!

Should I repeat myself after this? It seems to be what all the cool kids are doing...
I stumbled (I swear) onto an episode of CSI the other night. (It was actually one of the few good ones I've seen.) Anyway, the team was investigating a group of brothers in connection with an attempted rape/murder. One of the brothers' name was Joss. (OK, so he had died several years earlier, but whatever.)

Possible shoutout?
it could be adam_tvs
