Joss Whedon is a funny, funny man

From Whedonesque:
All right, now I have to jump in and set the record straight. EW is a fine rag, but they do take things out of context. Obviously when I said I had 'closure', what I meant was "I hate Serenity, I hated Firefly, I think my fans are stupid and Nathan Fillion smells like turnips." But EW's always got to put some weird negative spin on it. But so we're clear once and for all: If you read a quote saying "I'd love to do more in this 'verse with these actors in any medium" all I'm saying is that Nathan has a turnipy odor. It's not his fault, he doesn't eat a lot of them but everyone else in the cast noticed it and tht's not really something I'm prepared to deal with any more. And Jewel said outright she wouldn't do scenes with him except stuff like the SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER funeral scene which was outside in a high SPOILER wind. So if I do manage to find another incarnation for my beloved creation, it will have been totally against my will.

I hope that clears everything up. Oh, and when I say I want to do a Spike movie, it means I have a bunion on my toe.

(no, actually me.)


And by the way, Serenity is now available on DVD at fine stores everywhere. Go get yerself a copy, but for Pete's sakes, see the series first.

The DVD rocks. It has an easter egg that has the complete Fruity Oaty Bars commercial, it has the introduction to the sneak previews, and Joss' running commentary over the film is some of the best I've ever listened to ... he points out *all* of the flaws in the film, something very few directors are honest (naive?) enough to do.

Oh, and I should have mentioned, two deleted scenes that should have made a director's cut: the establishment scene for Inara (defines who she is, what she does for a living, and the general nature of her history with Mal in about 90 seconds) and an extended coda with the Operative in which Mal calls him a whiner as he walks off. The movie could have afforded the extra two minutes.
