I'm definitely biased in favor of Joss. He's got some great moments, and the nearly silent Buffy episode "Hush" shows he's got some talent. His strength lies in his writing, and this can lead to greatness.

Abrams seems to have one flaw that I feel holds him back from being great. On the human level, everyone is so serious, except for the designated comic relief guy. In the Jossverse, everyone gets to be funny, which allows me to feel much more for them and helps me accept them when they have to be serious.

I'll give Tequila the last word...
"I think Abrams might be a good director and Whedon is a good writer. They should work together."
