While Eliza Dushku is far from my favorite from Whedon's cadre of actors and actresses, I'll definitely be watching, and spread the word.

On a related note I'd like to remind any Joss fans out there to check out the Buffy season 8 comic series on Dark Horse. It's written by Joss and as such, is an indisputably awesome read for any fan of Joss's work and/or style.
Make sure you nab the outstanding Jo Chen covers!
