Joss Whedon to direct an episode of Glee
This really isn’t a shocker, Whedon does know his way around a musical, but Michael Ausiello reports Joss Whedon will direct an episode of FOX’s Glee. There’s already a bit of interest in Glee’s ratings. It will be interesting to see if the Joss episode spikes interest in Glee’s ratings.
If I hadn’t been warming to Glee already, this for sure would’ve begun defrosting me: Dollhouse-keeper Joss Whedon has agreed to direct one of the back nine episodes that Fox just ordered.
Turns out, the genius who gave us not only the “Once More, With Feeling” musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer but also Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a big fan of Ryan Murphy’s new phenom. So when Twentieth (the studio behind Glee) approached him about the gig, pretty much his only reservation was scheduling.
Of course conspiracy theorists and just plain Dollhouse ratings cynics will ponder whether FOX is just giving a little kiss-kiss to Joss instead of giving a back 9 order to Dollhouse. But we believe this was to just make long-time commenter and master of sarcasm “Joss’ Biggest Fan” happy. Time will tell!
