Joss speaks out

Joss Whedon comments about Fox’s shutdown of the BTVS “Once More With Feeling” singalong showings. Says the Master: “This is hugely depressing. I will do everything in my power to find out the exact reasoning for this and try to convince those responsible what a mistake it is.” (Via Cleolinda)
