The BBC video interview Joss Whedon about Serenity. This was recorded last year, but it doesn't seem to have surfaced online. 7 minutes, needs RealPlayer.

Nothing really new, although a jokey suggestion about a book sequel to Serenity if it didn't do well in theatres.

The BBC interviewer turns into a giant fan girl towards the end. It's too cute.

Yeah, don't remember seeing this before, wonder how it slipped under the radar. Cutting to the interviewer's reaction shots seemed kind of weird, but yes, her fangirlishness was quite cute. =)
I don't remember hearing Joss's answer to the traditional "Who would win, Buffy or River?" before. And yeah, totally Jayne!
I had the feeling she wasn't quite getting his jokes....
When he mentioned "only" seeing Star Wars 10 times in the theater, she kind of gets that blank look.
Oh, I dunno, I thought she got Joss just fine. The only thing she seemed to not get was the idea that there are people who don't know who Joss is. I have trouble with that concept too. =)
hmm.. hmm... it's been a difficult year... with no Joss goodness... BWAAAAAH
Usually things like that are filmed with one camera. She would do the interview with the camera on him, then they would turn the camera and take shots of her asking the questions one after another and "listening." Later they will edit the two together. Joss may or may not have been there when they did her shots.
Yeah, the interviewer seemed to 'get' Joss pretty well, you can hear her chuckling off camera when he makes with the funny. Probably just slightly nervous since she's clearly a fan (she really seemed genuine when she said there couldn't be many people who didn't know his name. Bless ;).

Would Buffy win ? Hmm, probably eventually but we shouldn't underestimate the advantage in combat of knowing what your opponent is about to do (River's psychic powers). I vaguely remember an X-Men comic which featured this idea. Psylocke went through everyone like a dose of salts since she could anticipate their moves and countermoves - until she met Wolverine that is for whom, in roughly his own words, 'thought and action are as one' i.e. he acts pretty much according to his more animalistic instincts while brawling)

ETA: BTW, it says on the page that Joss was partly responsible for 'Waterworld'. I hadn't heard this before. Anyone know if it was just a script doctoring job or was he more substantially to blame involved ?

Known I believe as noddies since you nod your head as if listening at the appropriate time.
I liked looking at the interviewer, though ;-)

(WHAT??)
Waterworld - Joss turned up, tried to get them to change things (like, uhm, the entire thing in many respects I believe) -- but they wouldn't. After two weeks, he left.
Jayne weilding a frying pan?! That's reason in its self to make a sequel :)
