Love the Chud.com site! As a 17 year-old, I don’t get all the references, but the articles are informative and funny (I think Devin is great and gets too much shit). I’m think the podcasts would be a bit too obscure for me so I haven’t listened to them. I love the Leak (but I think it should just be shortened to "The Leak") and wish it could come more regularly, but whenever you can is great (also I think integrating elements of it into the Leak Letters page is a good idea).
I’m writing mainly to talk about Whedon and Serenity. I haven’t seen it yet, but I am absolutely positive that I will disagree with your review. I don’t know why people like myself are so enamoured by his work, but it seems nothing that he touches (that studios don’t interfere with) can be bad. I mean it’s been 9 years since Buffy started and still there are fans, like myself, doggedly following his every move. (Having said that, I think Wonder Woman will be interesting, in that it is not his own creation). What is it about him that can inspire such devotion in fans? I would love to hear your opinions on the matter. Also, what did you think of Veronica Mars? I thought it kicked ass, but then that’s probably because it’s like Buffy sans the Vampires.
Nick’s Reply: Your suggestion in the first paragraph has a result! Notice the "fact this exists..." picture up above. As for the Whedon flick, the reason I can’t take your comments too seriously is the fact that you’ve already figured out how you’re going to like the film. What if my review is correct? Are you man enough to admit it? I never saw Veronica Mars, but only because it was Veroica Mars on our message board thread for so long.
