Joss Whedon + Glee = 2 Good 2 Be True? - Featured

Stop it, Fox. Stop making us so damn happy!



Not only is Glee quickly becoming our favorite series on television this season--there, we said it!--but Fox just confirmed to us that the addictive new show has just tapped Joss Whedon to direct an upcoming episode.


Yes, that Joss Whedon. You know, the guy who created Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, Dr. Horrible and now Dollhouse (which returns Friday).


He also has directed The Office twice, so it seems his taste in television does not suck.


So how did these two great flavors come together?


It seems Glee creator Ryan Murphy is a big fan of Joss, too.


"Joss directed one of the great musical episodes in the history of television on Buffy," he told my frenemy, who first broke the news. "So this is a great, if unexpected, fit. I'm thrilled he'll be loaning us his fantastic, groundbreaking talent."


We're still waiting for word from Fox on how Joss will fit in Glee while still helming Dollhouse, which has a 13-episode order so far for the second season.


Given how loyal Joss stays to his Whedonverse posse, we can only hope one of his peeps might appear on Glee. Are you rooting for SMG? Alyson Hannigan? David B.? Nathan Fillion? Or, oh snap, here's an idea: How about Neil Patrick Harris? Comment below, and let us know if you agree that Glee is un-freaking-believable so far this season...

Oh my god! It would be awesome if Neil Patrick Harris would be on Glee. I've heard him sing and he is really good. What does everyone else think?

My boyfriend told me about this and I literally stopped breathing for a minute. It's like the gods of happy TV watching are aligning for this magnificent collaboration. I mean, I love "Glee", and they've been doing a pretty good job the past few episodes at keeping me interested the whole time, but....c'mon.....it's JOSS WHEDON!
I'm a Browncoat. I'm a Buffhead. I'm a Whedonite. and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED.

"Once More With Feeling" was by far my favorite Buffy episode. I have no doubt a Joss Whedon-directed episode of Glee would be AMAZING! Now I can't wait for this to happen!

I thought I was dreaming when I first read this. Joss Whedon and Glee? Definitely too good to be true!I love Glee so far. Things are happening a little too fast, but overall it is a fantastic new series.Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris have HIMYM, David Boreanaz is busy with Bones and Nathan Fillion has his great new series Castle. So I say Sarah Michelle Gellar should grace us and Glee with her wonderful presence!I can't wait!

It'd be cool if he were doing the Halloween epi...it could be vampire-themed and the Gleeks could perform "Thriller"
