He really only wrote one concept he just did it several times (progressively worse)

And there is only so much you can do with a cheerleader fighting bad guys with kick boxing

Grrrrr Arrghh
Cheerleader fighting bad guys with kick-boxing?

Where's any of that in The Avengers, which he directed?

First thanks SL, for the thread and link.

I think he was referring to "Buffy the Vampire slayer" TV series.

Avengers was awesome, so I forgive him for that godawful "Dollhouse" Nikita/ ripoff /fail series he launched a few years ago.
That redshirt, Totally got vaped!!!

That... seems more like nit-picking than an actual explanation to my question

Where were the kickboxing ladies in Twister or Toy Story? Or Cabin in the Woods? Or Doctor Horrible? Or Titan AE? Speed? Disney's Atlantis?

He harps on that theme because the world needs female action heroes in equal proportion to its male action heroes and if he stopped doing it, not enough other people would.That doesn't make it what his shows or films are about.

But, really, it's needed everywhere.
