  • Favourite Writer

    From all the writers who is your favourite one? I'm not going to exclude Joss from this poll because personally I think that his work on Ats is less impressive than his BtVS work, so he is quite on the same level (or even lower) than some of the other writers. Of course if I'm wrong this poll is going to be very boring.

    Maybe it's also nice to tell us which episodes made you decide who your favourite writer is.

    I was between Stephen DeKnight and Tim Minear, but I voted for DeKnight, just because Minear has written a great many more episodes that make me cringe ("Sense & Sensitivity", "Somnambulist", "The Prodigal", "The Ring", "Through the Looking Glass", "That Old Gang of Mine", "Couplet").

    My top favourites of DeKnight's are "Shells", "Destiny" and "Deep Down". He's done some incredible work, in both Angel and Buffy.

      For me it was easy. Tim Minear wrote so many great episodes. He gave us; Darla, Reunion, Reprise, Epiphany, Lullaby & Forgiving. And I think that from all his episodes; 'Sense & Sensibility', 'Couplet' & 'That Old Gang of Mine' are his worst episodes. And the first is funny and the last two are a bit 'meh' but not OOC or terribly bad. That, and he wrote a brilliant Angel. Which is nice because Angel is the main character. He easily wrote Angel's flaws and virtues without making Angel look dumb or incredible unlikable. In Couplet Angel is petty but in the same episode he is also very sweet and big enough to get over himself and give Cordelia his blessing. And how can I not vote for the man who wrote the speech in 'Epiphany'.


      Jeffrey Bell is on the second place, third place goes between Stephen S. DeKnight & Mere Smith.

        Was it Minear who wrote that "Epiphany" speech? 'Cause Joss has taken credit for it in an interview or two...

          In that case it must be Joss. I've no idea, I thought that it was Minear because it was his episode. It wasn't until I did listen to the commentary of You're Welcome some months ago that I found out that Joss also wrote the last goodbye between Cordy and Angel.

          anyway Tim Minear is still my favourite writer ... speech or no speech.

            Maybe it's lame, but I had to go with Joss.

              I went with Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain for "Soulless".

                I had to go with Joss. He gave us city off, waiting in the wings and not fade away that is some of my favourite episodes. And I chose him because the only bad episode he gave us was I fall to pieces.

                  I'm with Nina on this. Tim Minear is the dog's dangly bits. He wrote some of the heavyweights of Season 2 and has a good handle on Angel's character.

                    Tim Minear by leaps and miles. He's the most consistent writer of the show and gave us many classic episodes that top most fans' lists.

                    Joss is nowhere near the best, IMO. He usually just came along on AtS to do a gimmick episode. Granted, they were good - but the quality was nowhere near the great episodes Minear wrote.

                    Steven S. DeKnight would be up there, he really nails the "big event" episodes (Inside Out, Shells, Apocalypse, Nowish). His episodes pretty much always guarantee kickass fight scenes and memorable moments.

                      Can't really decide between Joss Whedon, Tim Minear and Steven S. DeKnight.

                        Tim Minear wrote most of the big ones: Reprise, Epiphany, The Trial, Reunion, Sonmabulist, just to name a few. Steven Denight is also good: he wrote Shells, Inside Out.
